PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD
The purpose of this unit standard is to facilitate learning and to ensure that learners are able to cope with learning in the context of learnerships, skills programmes, and other learning programmes. Many adult learners in the FET band have not been in a learning situation for a long time, and need learning and study strategies and skills to enable successful progression.
Learners competent at this level will be able to deal with learning materials, to access and use useful resources, to seek clarification and help when necessary, and apply a range of learning strategies. They do this with an understanding of the features and processes of the workplace and occupations to which their learning programme refer.
Access and use suitable learning resources
Use learning strategies
Manage occupational learning programme materials
Conduct basic research, analyse and present findings
Function in a team
Reflect on how characteristics of the workplace and occupational context affect learning
LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING
The credit calculation is based on the assumption that learners are already competent in terms of the full spectrum of language knowledge and communication skills laid down in the Revised National Curriculum Statements and unit standards up to NQF level 2.
UNIT STANDARD RANGE
Learning materials appropriate to the learners in a given context.
The complexity of the texts in the learning programme are appropriate to the levels of the learning programme, which will in turn influence the application of this unit standard.
Specific range statements are provided in the body of the unit standard where they apply to particular outcomes or assessment criteria.
