DESCRIPTION 

Reading

  • Interprets relatively complex theoretical and technical information from different sources and determines how content applies to work practice

Writing

  • Records detailed process information in a logical sequence using clear language and industry specific terminology

Oral Communication

  • Articulates clearly using language applicable for context and audience
  • Elicits and shares information and confirms understanding using active listening and questioning techniques

Numeracy

  • Performs basic calculations to compare purchase price with the value of making own tools and equipment, and to determine quantities of resources required

Self-management

  • Meets obligation to confirm safe practices are followed when using specialised finishing resources and techniques
  • Considers the implication of intellectual property requirements when undertaking research and ideas development

Teamwork

  • Seeks and shares information and ideas in collaborative relationships with other practitioners to inform own work

Planning and organising

  • Adopts a systematic approach to preparation and planning of tasks

Initiative and enterprise

  • Makes different routine and analytical decisions to determine finishing resource requirements and techniques for the work

Problem-solving

  • Recognises need to adjust processes and techniques to work safely, solve problems and achieve results with peer support and consultation

  • apply and manage the specialised photo finishing process for at least two different pieces of work.

In the course of the above, the candidate must:

  • use information and exploration to identify finishing choices and determine finishing requirements
  • produce finished works that are technically sound and free from faults arising from the finishing process
  • use tools, materials and equipment independently and according to safety requirements
  • document detailed work processes
  • consider intellectual property requirements in the development of work ideas
  • review finishing processes and work quality.

Knowledge Evidence

The candidate must be able to demonstrate knowledge to complete the tasks outlined in the elements, performance criteria and foundation skills of this unit, including knowledge of:

  • impact of historical, contemporary and emerging trends in specialised finishing
  • properties of, and specifications for, different specialised finishing materials, tools, equipment and accessories
  • typical problems that occur in the specialised finishing process, and how to avoid or resolve them
  • how characteristics of different materials achieve different effects when finishing techniques are applied
  • cost and supply parameters for specialised finishing materials, tools, equipment and accessories in the context of professional practice
  • sustainability issues associated with the materials, tools, equipment and accessories used in specialised finishing
  • intellectual property requirements and legislation associated with the use of research or adapted concepts in creative work
  • organisational and legislative work health and safety requirements relating to specialised finishing activities.

Assessment Conditions

Skills in this unit must be demonstrated in a workplace or simulated environment where the conditions are typical of those in a working environment in this industry.

This includes access to:

  • applicable information about finishing processes, materials and equipment
