Qualification Description

This qualification covers work activities undertaken by smallgoods producers working in larger, factory-type smallgoods enterprises. Factories will often have specialised lines of production, (for example, hams and bacons) and use complex production machinery, and may not encompass the range of smallgoods production techniques found in traditional smallgoods enterprises.

Graduates from this qualification will have a wide range of cognitive, technical and communication skills to select and apply a specialised range of tools, materials and information to:

  • complete routine activities
  • provide and transmit solutions to predictable and sometimes unpredictable problems.

Graduates will apply knowledge and skills to demonstrate autonomy and judgement and to take limited responsibility in known and stable contexts within established parameters.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this qualification at the time of publication.

Entry Requirements
