New evidence requirements for assessment.

Performance Evidence

The candidate must show evidence of the ability to complete tasks outlined in elements and performance criteria of this unit, manage tasks and manage contingencies in the context of the job role. There must be demonstrated evidence that the candidate has completed the following tasks:

  • communicated issues to a supervisor and negotiated solutions in a clear and appropriate manner at least twice
  • guided behaviour using positive support techniques with at least two children and/or young people
  • discussed behaviours of children and/or young people to plan and problem-solve in collaboration with others
  • recorded observations and identified behaviours requiring support of children and/or young people using a range of methods
  • used judgement to determine when to involve other staff for supported intervention.

Knowledge Evidence

The candidate must be able to demonstrate essential knowledge required to effectively do the task outlined in elements and performance criteria of this unit, manage the task and manage contingencies in the context of the work role. These include knowledge of:

  • definitions of and differences between disruptive behaviour and behaviours of concern
  • how learning difficulties or mental health issues may affect behaviour
  • impacts of environment and culture on behaviour of children and/or young people
  • communicative function of behaviour and positive support strategies to redirect behaviour and defuse situations
  • organisational standards, policies and procedures.

Assessment Conditions

Skills must be assessed in the workplace.

In addition, simulations and scenarios must be used where the full range of contexts and situations cannot be provided in the workplace or may occur only rarely. These are situations relating to emergency or unplanned procedures where assessment in these circumstances would be unsafe or is impractical.

Simulated assessment environments must simulate the real-life working environment where these skills and knowledge would be performed, with all the relevant equipment and resources of that working environment.

Assessors must satisfy the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015/AQTF mandatory competency requirements for assessors.
