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.

Overview of assessment 

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

Evidence of the following is essential:

  • Produce a basic fastened product that meets job specifications, production timeframes and quality standards
  • Demonstrate an ability to find and use information relevant to the task from a variety of information sources
  • On TWO occasions produce adhesive OR mechanical OR thermal fastened products, using different weights and sizes of substrate, according to manufacturer's and job specifications, enterprise procedures and the listed Performance Criteria
  • Demonstrate use of computerised control, monitoring and data entry systems if available and appropriate.

Context of and specific resources for assessment 

Assessment must ensure:

  • Assessment may take place on the job, off the job or a combination of these
  • Assessment off the job must be undertaken in a closely simulated workplace environment.

Method of assessment 

A range of assessment methods should be used to assess practical skills and knowledge. The following examples are appropriate for this unit:

  • direct questioning combined with review of portfolios of evidence and third party workplace reports of on-the-job performance by the candidate.

Guidance information for assessment 

Holistic assessment with other units relevant to the industry sector, workplace and job role is recommended, for example:

  • ICPSU201C Prepare, load and unload reels and cores on and off machine
  • ICPSU202C Prepare, load and unload product on and off machine
  • ICPSU208C Operate and monitor machines (basic)
  • ICPCF261C Set up machine for basic adhesive, mechanical or thermal fastening.

Range Statement

RANGE STATEMENT 

The range statement relates to the unit of competency as a whole. It allows for different work environments and situations that may affect performance. Bold italicised wording, if used in the performance criteria, is detailed below. Essential operating conditions that may be present with training and assessment (depending on the work situation, needs of the candidate, accessibility of the item, and local industry and regional contexts) may also be included.

Substrate handling  may include:

  • wide or narrow reel or large or small sheet handling systems.

Fastening process  may include:

  • adhesive fastening such as cold and hot melt gluing, taping
  • mechanical fastening such as riveting, string and wire stitching, and wire binding
  • thermal fastening such as high frequency and heat welding.

In -line processes  may include:

  • minor processes that are integral to this competency can include basic in-line operations such as perforating, numbering, slitting that do not in themselves constitute another defined unit of competency. Where a major in-line process is defined as a separate competency (eg flat-bed cutting, folding) it should be assessed as such.

Fastening units  may include:

  • a range of machines with manual, semi-automated, fully automated or computerised process control.

Complexity  may include:

  • basic refers to simple hand-fed or single-head adhesive and thermal machines, single-head mechanical machines.

Substrate  types may include:

  • range of substrates within the major categories of paper, pressure sensitive material, board, plastics and related films, or metal.
