  15. 15. Activity <ul><li>Think/pair share activity </li></ul><ul><ul><li>How would you ensure that the key competencies and/or employability skills are incorporated into your sessions? </li></ul></ul>
  16. 16. Contextualisation <ul><li>Modifying units of competency to reflect the local outcomes required, while maintaining the integrity of the unit. </li></ul>
  17. 17. Contextualisation rules <ul><li>must not remove or add to the number and content of elements and performance criteria; </li></ul><ul><li>may add specific industry terminology to performance criteria where this does not distort or narrow the competency outcomes; </li></ul><ul><li>may make additions to the range statement. </li></ul>
  18. 18. Customisation <ul><li>Tailoring a course to meet the specific needs of clients. </li></ul><ul><li>A course is customised by the addition, or substitution of units of competency in accordance with the packaging rules. </li></ul>

  21. 21. Determine the Evidence Requirements <ul><li>This is done by unpacking the unit of competency to determine: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>What evidence is needed to demonstrate competence; and </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How can this evidence be collected. </li></ul></ul>
  22. 22. Activity – Discussion What is being assessed? <ul><li>Try to ‘picture’ the competency standard that is to be assessed.
