In both cases, many activities will be in the planning phase as opposed to being operational. Where this is the case, work environments must be ‘simulated’ for assessment. Each unit of competency involves assessment tasks conducted in a range of contexts, for example:

  • Written question and answers: short answer questions, matching/multiple choices questions
  • Practical skills tasks: Research analysis of real-life case studies, portfolios and reports
  • Projects: Planning, modelling and specifying Portfolio (e.g., collection of plans, models, specifications, research findings and reports
