I wasn’t going to develop RPL tools for the Certificate IV level units because I didn’t think there was much demand. Naturally, as soon as I made this decision I started to receive requests for RPL tools for the Cert IV in WHS. Typical!
So, now I have completed these in the same format that I used for the BSB51915 Diploma of leadership and management RPL tools – namely:
• One assessor guide and candidate guide for the qualification as a whole – to start the process. This contains the candidate application and guidance for both the assessor and candidate on the RPL process.
• One assessor guide and candidate guide for each unit of competency.
I have put full samples on my web site (at the bottom of the BSB41415 page).
There are two more RPL tools to develop for BSB41415. They are BSBWHS408 and BSBWHS409. I should have these finished in the next couple of days. These units will be RPL tools only – no learning and assessment resources.
These two units must be assessed in the workplace and need to be highly contextualised to the workplace. Monitoring processes and contractor management depend on the type of workplace. For instance, a laboratory, construction site, manufacturing, mining, power generation require quite different air monitoring and contractor management.
Next project: RPL tools for BSB42015 Certificate IV in leadership and management.
It’s been full on since March but I now have resources for all three of the qualifications I was working on.
They were developed in this order:
1. BSB51915 Diploma of Leadership and Management
2. BSB42015 Certificate IV in Leadership and Management
3. BSB41415 Certificate IV in Work Health and Safety
There’s a complete list of all units developed, in order of code, on this website as a separate document that can be downloaded and easily printed.
BSB42015 Cert IV Leadership and Management and BSB41415 Cert IV WHS have quite a few overlaps in the electives. There’s even an overlap with the Diploma, since BSBPMG522 Undertake project work is common to all three qualifications.
The work is not over yet. In response to requests from existing clients I will be developing resources for:
· BSBLDR503 Communicate with influence; and
· BSBWOR404 Develop work priorities
Because of the rush, I haven’t developed RPL tools so I will also be going back and developing RPL tools for each of the units.
Those of you who have been following my comments and those of Chemene on Linkedln will know that TAE40110 new qualification is still not endorsed. It was supposed to go to AISC September meeting but didn’t. There is an October and December meeting but Robert Bluer at IBSA doesn’t seem confident about whether it will be endorsed at all this year.
As a result, those of us who develop TAE resources don’t quite know what to do. Chemene Sinson (Blackwater Projects) is holding fire apart from TAELLN411 which is already endorsed. I have already developed TAELLN411 but am not actively marketing it, except to make it available to my existing clients. (You will notice it’s not on the list of units developed.)
The last few months have severely reduced the time I could devote to actual training and hopefully I can spend a bit more time with “real people” now that the worst of the development is done. However, this may be a vain hope as I can see TAE rearing its ugly head soon.
Development of the resources for BSB41415 Cert IV Work Health and Safety is going quite well I think.
I have completed enough units to meet the packaging rules but have more to go. Units completed are:
1. BSBWHS402 Assist with compliance with WHS laws
2. BSBWHS403 Contribute to implementing and maintaining WHS consultation and participation processes
3. BSBWHS404 Contribute to WHS hazard identification, risk assessment and risk control
4. BSBWHS405 Contribute to implementing and maintaining WHS management systems
5. BSBWHS406 Assist with responding to incidents
6. BSBPMG522 Undertake project work (done as part of BSB51915 Diploma of leadership and management)
7. BSBSUS301 Implement and monitor environmentally sustainable work practices (done as part of BSB42015 Cert IV leadership and management)
8. BSBWHS410 Contribute to work-related health and safety measures and initiatives
9. BSBMGT401 Show leadership in the workplace (done as part of BSB42015 Cert IV leadership and management)
10. BSBMGT403 Implement continuous improvement (done as part of BSB42015 Cert IV leadership and management)
So this meets the packaging rules.
I am now going to develop:
· BSBCMM401 Make a presentation
· BSBRES401 Analyse and present research information
These are both Group A units, so it gives more choice. They are also units that are in the electives for BSB42015 Cert IV leadership and management.
I have been asked to develop BSBLDR503 Communicate with influence which is a Group A unit in BSB51915 Diploma of leadership and management, so I should be starting that quite soon. (I wonder whether it’s a unit that every politician should have.)
This is just a quick note regarding my progress on developing the units for BSB41415 Certificate IV in Work Health and Safety.
I have now completed the resources for all 5 core units:
· BSBWHS402 Assist with compliance with WHS laws
· BSBWHS403 Contribute to implementing and maintaining WHS consultation and participation processes
· BSBWHS404 Contribute to WHS hazard identification, risk assessment and risk control
· BSBWHS405 Contribute to implementing and maintaining WHS management systems
· BSBWHS406 Assist with responding to incidents
My original hope was to have all 10 resources completed before the end of August but I don’t think this will happen, as I am going on a “health retreat” for 5 days next week. Don’t know what persuaded me to do this … actually I do. It was a combination of my best friend and my doctor. Wish me luck. It will be 5 days without alcohol, cigarettes, coffee or even cooked food. Why on earth would I pay for such suffering?
Anyway, back to the resources. Those of you who are my current clients know that I had already developed BSB41412 units and the BSB41415 units are all stated as equivalent.
This is why I left these till last, as I figured my existing clients could just re-map.
In fact, I have made modifications — not just re-mapped. Every time I look at something I developed previously I find ways to make it better. Also, the new training package format did require some tweaking of the assessments — but not nearly as much as BSB42015 Certificate IV in Leadership and Management or BSB51915 Diploma of Leadership and Management.
I might be able to get one more unit done before I go away next week. (I would cross my fingers but that makes it very difficult to type.)
I’m happy to say that I have now completed the resources for BSB42015 Certificate IV in Leadership and Management. Not before time, as I have clients waiting for them. Some couldn’t wait and have been purchasing the units one by one as soon as they are developed.
The qualification BSB42015 is the successor to BSB40812 Certificate IV in Frontline Management, but is not equivalent. Nevertheless, several of the units were equivalent and I had already developed resources for the FLM qualification — much the same way that I already had Diploma of Management resources that I could use as the basis for the Diploma of Leadership and Management.
Having said that, there was more to change in the Cert IV than there was in the Diploma —which is why it took me so long. As I’ve mentioned before, the new format replaces Required Knowledge with Knowledge Evidence and the change in the wording often requires further assessment tasks.
Example from BSBMGT401 Show leadership in the workplace:
· explain how to identify an organisation’s standards and values when they are:
This was implied in the performance criteria for BSBMGT401A but not stated as Required Knowledge. In this case it was insufficient for the candidate to have applied the organisation’s standards and values as demonstrated in performance of a task. They also have to explain how they identified the stated and implied values.
So altogether this development project has been challenging and I’m relieved to be moving on. Now I’m starting on BSB41415 Certificate IV in Work Health and Safety. This is the qualification most in demand by my clients, but I also considered it was the one that would need the least work to modify. Hopefully that’s correct. I’m aiming to have the Cert IV WHS resources all complete by the end of August.
With regard to the new TAE Cert IV, the latest word is that it will be out in September. That will suit my timing quite well but I’m not holding my breath. We have been expecting this qualification for over a year now.
