Required Skills and Knowledge

REQUIRED SKILLS AND KNOWLEDGE 

This section describes the skills and knowledge required for this unit.

Required skills :

  • literacy skills sufficient to read product labels and instructions
  • numeracy skills sufficient to deal with basic scaling and layout issues.

Required knowledge :

  • general knowledge of the physical properties and capabilities of the most commonly used materials and tools for drawing
  • general knowledge of different approaches to drawing and the work of other practitioners in relation to using drawing to represent an object or idea
  • awareness of copyright, moral rights and intellectual property issues and legislation in relation to drawing
  • overview knowledge of the elements and principles of design
  • environmental and occupational health and safety issues associated with the tools and materials used in drawing work.

Evidence Guide

EVIDENCE GUIDE 

The evidence guide provides advice on assessment and must be read in conjunction with the performance criteria, required skills and knowledge, range statement and the Assessment Guidelines for the Training Package.

Critical aspects for assessment and evidence required to demonstrate competency in this unit 

The following evidence is critical to the judgement of competence in this unit:

  • production of more than one drawing which represents the object or idea and which shows command of the basic technique/s used.

Context of and specific resources for assessment 

The assessment context must provide for:

  • practical demonstration of skills through the production of drawings.

Method of assessment 

Assessment may incorporate a range of methods to assess performance and the application of essential underpinning knowledge, and might include:

  • direct observation of work in progress
  • questioning and discussion of the candidate's intentions and work
  • verbal or written reports
  • review of portfolios of evidence
  • third party workplace reports of performance by the candidate.

Assessment methods should closely reflect workplace demands (e.g. literacy) and the needs of particular groups (e.g. people with disabilities and people who may have literacy or numeracy difficulties e.g. speakers of languages other then English, remote communities and those with interrupted schooling).

Assessment of this unit requires access to the materials and resources needed to apply basic drawing techniques.
