Further BSB42015 Development
Having completed 13 units for BSB51915 Diploma of Leadership and Management, I have been working on the units for BSB42015 Certificate IV in Leadership and Management.
I’ve completed the first 3 core units so far:
• BSBLDR401 Communicate effectively as a workplace leader
• BSBLDR402 Lead effective workplace relationships
• BSBLDR403 Lead team effectiveness
I‘m about to start developing BSBMGT402 Implement operational plan.
In most cases, although I have developed resources for the previous superseded unit, it’s not just a case of re-mapping. In some cases it’s almost a complete re-write.
Although the performance criteria are usually identical, the Knowledge Evidence is written in a different way. It’s no longer sufficient for knowledge to be demonstrated with performance. The candidate must “explain”, “outline” or “describe”.
The Performance Evidence bears practically no relationship to the previous Critical Aspects of Evidence. Re-mapping of the old resource might be sufficient but there’s no guarantee.
So for those of you who are upgrading your existing resources, be warned. The learning material will probably be fine, but your assessments will definitely need looking at.
On the up side, I’m actually enjoying this challenge (apart from the pressure of time). It gives me a chance to look back on what I have written with fresh eyes and see ways to make the resource much better than last time.
