Course Description

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to develop and refine a range of techniques to produce technical drawings. It outlines the ways technical drawing can be applied to a range of contexts where visual representation is required. People working in many industries require the skills and knowledge in this unit, and the unit is written to allow for contextualisation to a particular industry
context. This work would usually be carried out independently, although guidance would be available if required.

Overview of Assessment

The assessment context must provide for:
   • practical demonstration of skills using required materials, tools and equipment to produce technical drawings consistent with the
concept/work requirements

Assessment may incorporate a range of methods to assess performance and the application of essential underpinning knowledge, and might include:
   • direct observation of the drawing in progress
   • evaluation of technical drawings produced by the candidate
   • questioning and discussion of the candidate’s intentions and work outcome
   • review of portfolios of evidence
   • third party workplace reports of performance by the candidate

Assessment methods should closely reflect workplace demands (eg literacy) and the needs of particular groups (eg people with disabilities, and people who may have literacy or numeracy difficulties such as speakers of languages other than English, remote communities and those with interrupted schooling).
