Updating Units for BSB51107 & TAE40110 Plus
I’ve just completed another of the new BSB51107 Diploma of Management units and figured I would come up for air before starting on the next one.
I have several RTOs waiting for this new resource and I’m intending to have it done by the end of the month. The BSB51107 Learning Guide is complete, together with the assessment tools for 4 of the 8 units.
BSB51107 is a Diploma level qualification so it doesn’t have the same structure as a Certificate IV. For instance, with BSB41412 Certificate IV in Work Health and Safety and BSB40812 Certificate IV in Frontline Management the language is simple, straightforward and friendly. Hopefully it’s the same in the Diploma but I don’t think it’s necessary to avoid all the big words (like “cohesion”). I also don’t do a PowerPoint for Diploma.
Having delivered BSB51107 for some time now (my old clustered course) I have learnt what works and what doesn’t. I am seeing the new approach being to give the whole Learning Guide to trainees before they attend workshops – or get involved in chat rooms etc. So the Learning Guide is a single document containing the 8 units.
The assessment tools, on the other hand, are unit by unit. One of the problems we have with heavily clustered assessments is when to actually sign off a candidate as competent. With unit by unit assessment tools, it’s cut and dried.
For those of you who have contacted me about TAE40110 new course – yes, I am getting there. I have 3 units done (TAEDES401A, TAEDES402A and TAELLN401A). I am working madly to get this finished as soon as possible. I am aiming for the end of June but it could be a bit before.
I’ve also had enquiries about resources for BSB40812 Certificate IV in Frontline Management. The following units are developed:
• BSBMGT401A Show leadership in the workplace
• BSBMGT402A Implement operational plan
• BSBWHS401A Implement and monitor WHS policies, procedures and programs to meet legislative requirements
• BSBWOR402A Promote team effectiveness
• BSBSUS301A Implement and monitor environmentally sustainable work practices
Because BSB40812 is a new code, it requires application for scope and I am hearing that ASQA has a backlog and RTOs are experiencing delays – which is good for me as it gives me just a little more time. Nevertheless I need to fast track this.
I am being asked for learning and assessment pathway resources for:
• BSBWHS408A Assist with effective WHS management of contractors
• BSBWHS409A Assist with workplace monitoring processes and
• PUAWER002B Ensure workplace emergency prevention procedures, systems and processes are implemented.
In the case of BSBWHS408A and BSBWHS409A I have created RPL tools but do not believe these units lend themselves to a learning and assessment pathway for inexperienced trainees. I don’t intend to create resources for PUAWER002B as I think there are too many variables in the type of workplace. Also, this unit has been around for a while so there are other resources available.
Samples of my new resources are not yet on the web site. This will be updated at the time the full qualifications are ready to go.
Thank you to my existing clients for your feedback on how well the resources are being received by the trainers and trainees. This has an up-side and a down-side. The up-side is that I’m doing something right. The down-side is that demand is outstripping supply! (There is only one of me.)
