Learning Outcomes



Details of Learning Activities

Students will study CHCCD402A Develop and pprovide community education concepts in
1) workshop sessions and
2) online (Blackboard discussion) engagement
3) prescribed exercises and
4) assessment work.
These concepts will also be explored through the investigation of appropriate real world and simulated environments.


Teaching Schedule

Workshops will be offered on a monthly basis during the academic year. Workshops are linked to units of competency.

An initial upfront assessment will occur with the student that will take into account recognition of current competency and prior learning. The individual student’s knowledge, skills and experience will be considered.

Based on this process the student will then have an individual learning plan developed that will highlight the students workshop attendance.


Learning Resources

Prescribed Texts


References


Other Resources

Learning resources such as unit readings and unit references will be provided to all students via their program folders and also placed within the blackboard site as required.


Overview of Assessment

Assessment in this unit will be through a mix of in-class tasks, workplace based projects and a workplace assessment. An upfront assessment to develop an individual learning plan will occur. An individual assessment appointment will be undertaken once per year with each student to allow students to present and discuss workplace evidence.


Assessment Tasks

A student must demonstrate an understanding of all elements of this competency and assessment tasks are based on the requirements of the essential aspects of evidence as outlined in the unit of competency: CHCCD402A Develop and provide community education projects.

Assessment methods are designed to measure achievement of each competency in a flexible manner over a range of assessment tasks.

A workplace assessment appointment will be undertaken to allow students to present and discuss workplace evidence: Based on the individual student’s knowledge, skills and experience: an individual learning plan will be negotiated and developed.

Assessment may incorporate a variety of methods including:
1) responses to task questions,
2) in class activities, case studies, and
3) the development of project work in consultation with the Course Coordinator ( assessor) and the student’s workplace.
4) Students will also be asked to complete an evidence portfolio documenting workplace practise as linked to the unit of competency.

Students are advised that they are likely to be asked to personally demonstrate their assessment work to their Course Coordinator to ensure that the relevant competency standards are met.


Assessment Matrix

A combination of assessment activities based on each individual student’s learning plans may be developed as required.
Assessments will be based on the level of the individual student’s knowledge, skills and experience as ascertained at a workplace meeting where workplace evidence is discussed and presented.
At completion of the course an evidence portfolio will validate competence with the assessment task activities’ completed for any competency gaps.
