This version first released with ICP Printing and Graphic Arts Training Package Version 4.0.

Application

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to compose pages according to a client design brief, using a high-end application.

It applies to individuals who design and prepare layouts and artwork, manipulate images and text, and apply solutions to a defined range of problems. They may also provide leadership and guidance to others, with limited responsibility for the output of others.

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

Writing

  • Uses a variety of strategies for planning, drafting, reviewing and proofreading own writing
  • Selects text type to communicate information and ideas

Oral Communication

  • Participates in spoken interactions by using vocabulary, including technical language, relevant to role and context

Numeracy

  • Selects and uses mathematical strategies to solve problems in familiar contexts

Self-management

  • Identifies and follows explicit and implicit protocols and meets expectations associated with own role
  • Takes responsibility for decisions about when and how to complete tasks and coordinates with others

Teamwork

  • Collaborates with others to achieve joint outcomes, playing an active role in facilitating interaction

This version first released with ICP Printing and Graphic Arts Training Package Version 4.0.

Performance Evidence

The candidate must demonstrate the ability to complete the tasks outlined in the elements, performance criteria and foundation skills of the unit, including evidence of the ability to:

  • prepare three sets of page layouts according to client requirements.

In the course of the above, the candidate must:

  • identify the substrate for reproduction and confirm the layout meets brief requirements
  • communicate with others to create a product that meets brief requirements.

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:

  • colour quality selection
  • different qualities of various file types and their uses, including:
  • Tagged Image File Format (TIFF)
  • Encapsulated PostScript (EPS)
  • colour relationships and types
  • considerations in the printing process during the design phase, and problems that can occur if the printing process is overlooked
  • the considerations regarding media size during imposition
  • the difference between computer type and print type
  • factors that affect overall design and layout, such as typography, readability and artwork arrangement
  • market segmentation and the importance of the target audience
  • the process for creating and saving templates and creating style guides and sheets
  • manufacturer manuals, enterprise procedures and work health and safety (WHS) documentation, including their location and purpose.

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. Noise levels, production flow, interruptions and time variances must be typical of those experienced in the area of work.

This includes access to:

  • page layout applications and software.

Assessors of this unit must satisfy the requirements for assessors in applicable vocational education and training legislation, frameworks and/or standards.
