In all of the tables in this document, both the pre-2009 NQF Level and the NQF Level is shown. In the text (purpose statements, qualification rules, etc), any references to NQF Levels are to the pre-2009 levels unless specifically stated otherwise.  

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

PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
A learner credited with this unit standard will be able to select and use relevant learning support materials and learning aids for facilitating learning in development practice projects. These projects are part of a broad development programme.

The learner may not necessarily acquire the skill to initiate or design materials but will be able to adjust or adapt certain materials to accommodate conditions in the learning environment that will enhance learning. 

LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
Apart from being familiar with a chosen and specialised field of knowledge, a learner studying towards this unit standard is assumed to have completed the following unit standards:
  • Support the facilitation of learning for development practice projects, NQF Level 1.
  • Understand the foundations of transformative development practice, NQF Level 1. 

  • UNIT STANDARD RANGE 
  • Learning materials include all aids such as media, cartoons, audio, visual, posters, pamphlets and videos.
  • Integration of learning aids and materials into learning events means that the materials are suited to the context, a learner and the learning topic, and that they are used in a way that enhances learning.
  • Adjusted or adapted learning materials or learning aids are limited to at least three conditions commonly occurring in development practice projects. 

  • Specific Outcomes and Assessment Criteria: 

    SPECIFIC OUTCOME 1 
    Understand and Identify different learning support materials for development practice. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERIA
     

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 1 
    1. Learning support materials are explained and described in the context of usage in programmes. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 2 
    2. The use of learning support materials is demonstrated to indicate the benefits that enhance learning. 

    SPECIFIC OUTCOME 2 
    Select learning support materials for development practice. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERIA
     

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 1 
    1. Appropriate learning materials and learning aids for particular development practice projects are selected.

    2. Reasons for selecting the learning materials and aids that are relevant to the specialised field of learning are provided. 

    SPECIFIC OUTCOME 3 
    Adapt the learning support materials to fit the learning environment. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERIA
     

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 1 
    1. Situations where possible adaptation of learning materials and aids are required, are identified by providing evidence of such situations. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 2 
    2. A rationale for each adaptation is provided either in a presentation or a written task. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 3 
    3. Learning support materials and learning aids are presented in the adjusted or adapted format. 

    SPECIFIC OUTCOME 4 
    Use and apply learning materials for development practice. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERIA
     

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 1 
    1. Procedures for the usage and application of each selected piece of material and/or aid are demonstrated. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 2 
    2. The selected or adapted learning materials and learning aids are integrated into learning process. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 3 
    3. The usage and application of learning materials and learning aids are evaluated in accordance with a set of criteria for effectiveness. 


    UNIT STANDARD ACCREDITATION AND MODERATION OPTIONS 
    Accredited providers may establish or refine moderation procedures and systems in line with the requirements of the relevant ETQA.

    An external moderator may moderate the results of learners. External moderators should provide reports not only on the fairness and consistency of assessment, but also on the validity of the assessment design in terms of the specified outcomes.

    Critical Cross-field Outcomes (CCFO): 

    UNIT STANDARD CCFO IDENTIFYING 
    Identifying and solving problems in which responses display that responsible decisions using critical and creative thinking have been made:
  • In selecting learning support materials learners will identify and solve problems. The unit standard addresses this critical cross-field outcome. 

  • UNIT STANDARD CCFO COMMUNICATING 
    Communicating effectively using visual, mathematical and/or language skills in the modes of oral and/or written persuasion:
  • The selection of the appropriate learning support material will communicate the appropriate outcome. This critical cross-field outcome is addressed in this unit standard. 

  • UNIT STANDARD CCFO SCIENCE 
    Using science and technology effectively and critically, showing responsibility towards the environment and health of others:
  • Using certain equipment and technical learning support materials support using science and technology correctly and effectively. The unit standard supports this critical cross-field outcome. 

  • UNIT STANDARD ASSESSOR CRITERIA 
    Anyone assessing learners against this unit standard could be employed as a development practitioner in the same provider institution with at least a level 5 Qualification and work with a registered assessor in development practice with the relevant ETQA.

    Registered Assessors must have a level 5 qualification in development practice and prior or concurrent experience as a development practitioner. 

    REREGISTRATION HISTORY 
    As per the SAQA Board decision/s at that time, this unit standard was Reregistered in 2012; 2015.

    PROVIDERS CURRENTLY ACCREDITED TO OFFER THIS UNIT STANDARD: 
    This information shows the current accreditations (i.e. those not past their accreditation end dates), and is the most complete record available to SAQA as of today. Some Primary or Delegated Quality Assurance Functionaries have a lag in their recording systems for provider accreditation, in turn leading to a lag in notifying SAQA of all the providers that they have accredited to offer qualifications and unit standards, as well as any extensions to accreditation end dates. The relevant Primary or Delegated Quality Assurance Functionary should be notified if a record appears to be missing from here.
