    UNIT STANDARD ACCREDITATION AND MODERATION OPTIONS 
    1. Anyone assessing a learner against this unit standard must be registered as an assessor with the relevant ETQA.

    2. Any institution offering learning that will enable achievement of this unit standard must be registered with the FE/HE Registrar.

    3. Any institution wishing to receive skill development grants must be accredited with the relevant ETQA. Such an institution will also be registered with the relevant SETA.

    4. Moderation of assessment will be done by the relevant ETQA at its discretion. 

    UNIT STANDARD ESSENTIAL EMBEDDED KNOWLEDGE 
    Embedded knowledge and Critical cross-field outcomes have been included within the specific outcomes category.
    This has been done as it was deemed necessary to ensure holistic assessment occurred.

    The specific outcomes can be applied in a range of contexts.
    .
    Many of the outcomes have been written in such a way that competence must be demonstrated in the context as opposed to in isolation from a context.

    The specific outcomes are comparable to outcomes used internationally.

    We therefore structured outcomes using the format noun + verb + condition (modifying phrase)Specific outcomes have been split into three categoriesa) knowledge and understanding (what the learner must know and understand)b) decision-making and acting (what the learner must do)c) adapting performance ( including reflexive competence)In many instances there are more than six specific outcomes, as the inclusion of critical cross-field outcomes and embedded knowledge has increased the number of specific outcomes.

    If competencies are to be clustered in a meaningful way, then these unit standards cannot be split. 


    Critical Cross-field Outcomes (CCFO): 

    UNIT STANDARD CCFO COLLECTING 
    Collect, analyse and evaluate information. 

    UNIT STANDARD CCFO COMMUNICATING 
    Communicate effectively. 

    UNIT STANDARD CCFO CONTRIBUTING 
    Develop entrepreneurial opportunities. 

    UNIT STANDARD NOTES 
    Essential embedded knowledge is dealt with under the outcomes section.
