Regardless of the mode of delivery, represent a guide to the relative teaching time and student effort required to successfully achieve a particular competency/module. This may include not only scheduled classes or workplace visits but also the amount of effort required to undertake, evaluate and complete all assessment requirements, including any non-classroom activities.
Pre-requisites and Co-requisites
This unit of competency specifies the outcomes required to deliver spatial product or service to meet client requirements, often in a supervisory capacity. It requires highly developed communication skills and the ability to apply in substantial depth skills and knowledge to a wide variety of spatial contexts to meet project deliverables. Functions would be carried out within organisational guidelines.

Overview of Assessment
A person who demonstrates competency in this unit must be able to provide evidence of:
• determining precise data requirements
• applying cost considerations
• applying qualitative and quantitative measurements for a project
• assessing and acting upon contingencies
• communication and negotiation skills
• analysing data
• coordinating resources, equipment and personnel to achieve specified outcomes in a timely and efficient manner
• managing risks and contingencies
• working towards set targets
• understanding spatial project deliverables.
Assessment of this unit will involve completion of the simulate workplace project and the Evaluation of portfolio, using a checklist, of the performance of elements of competence as designated for this unit to the required standard including collection methods and techniques related to the project objectives.
Observation, using a skills checklist, of performance of elements of competence as designated for this unit to the required standard during practical fieldwork exercises within a simulated workplace project.
Assessment will require demonstration of:
• Consistence performance of each element of the unit across a representative range of applications, autonomously and to requirements
• Performance criteria for each element of competence
• Underpinning knowledge and skills specified.
Context of Assessment:
This unit is to be assessed in a simulated workplace and under the normal range of work conditions.
Element: 1 Develop the production plan - Assignment 1
Element: 2 Implement the production plan - Assignment 1
Element: 3 Monitor and complete the process - Assignment 2
Element: 4 Complete documentation - Assignment 3
Note: Assignment due dates will issued on the commencement of the course.
