This unit standard does not replace any other unit standard and is not replaced by any other unit standard. 

PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
The purpose of this unit standard is intended for a range of people, including managers, supervisors who may be required to identify, plan and implement housing projects to meet housing needs and demands in a given context. Learners accessing this unit standard will be involved in the evaluation of each housing delivery mechanism and analyse environments within which a particular housing delivery mechanism could be implemented in response of a particular housing need established.

The qualifying learner will be capable of:
  • Analysing and appraise the housing delivery mechanisms in South Africa.
  • Implementing relevant housing delivery mechanism to meet individual, group and community housing needs.
  • Evaluating the subsidy schemes to implement the various housing delivery. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    Learners accessing this unit standard will have demonstrated competence in computer literacy and communication literacy at NQF Level 5 or equivalent. 

    UNIT STANDARD RANGE 
    The various housing delivery mechanisms include but not limited to developer-driven and people-driven housing delivery mechanisms which include amongst others, project-linked projects, Peoples Housing Process (PHP) projects, social housing projects.

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 4 
    Relevant role-players to implement a chosen housing delivery mechanism to meet individual group and community housing needs are managed from the project application context. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 5 
    The problems associated with the use of a particular housing delivery mechanism in certain housing circumstances are discussed within the context of institutional and financial constraints. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 6 
    A project implementation plan for a chosen housing delivery mechanism is developed and presented for improved implementation. 

    SPECIFIC OUTCOME 3 
    Evaluate the subsidy schemes to implement the various housing delivery mechanism. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERIA
     

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 1 
    The subsidy schemes developed for housing provision of government assisted housing to the poor are evaluated to determine appropriatenesss in the context of sufficiency and sustainability.
