PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
This unit standard is for learners and practitioners interested in the preparation of a context specific report setting out the measures taken to address the problem and the results achieved. The rationale for this unit standard is based on the importance of creating and maintaining a safe society, especially in terms of contributions to improving safety in society by building and confirming knowledge regarding crime and victimisation.

This unit standard is designed to acquire knowledge regarding preparing a report in the field of crime and victimisation including:
  • Criteria for compiling a report.
  • Identifying context specific information to be addressed.
  • Writing a context specific report.

    Learners become aware of the importance of reflecting and exploring a range of strategies to learn more effectively as they prepare a context specific report setting out the measures taken to address the problem and the results achieved. They learn to participate as responsible citizens in the life of local, national and global communities, by identifying and address factors contributing to crime and victimisation. They learn the importance of being culturally sensitive across a range of social contexts in relating to all participants when identifying factors contributing to crime and victimisation on an individual, social and corporate level. The attaining of these outcomes will also contribute to the development of learners' entrepreneurial skills within the field.
