Application

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to write complex workplace texts, which may be in printed or digital formats, such as reports, technical or design briefs, induction manuals, standard operating procedures and instruction manuals.

This unit applies to individuals who use, or are preparing to use, writing skills to complete workplace activities. This includes existing workers and individuals preparing for employment through vocational education and training. This unit should be integrated and contextualised with vocational training to support achievement of vocational competency.

This unit is aligned to, but does not fully address, the Australian Core Skills Framework (ACSF) writing core skill indicators .05 and .06 at level 4 in the workplace and employment domain of communication.
