SKILL 

DESCRIPTION 

Numeracy

  • Interprets numerical information to calibrate equipment and measure and assess signal strength

Oral Communication

  • Uses active listening, observational and questioning techniques to confirm information and using technical language appropriate to audience and environment

Reading

  • Gathers, interprets and analyses information from a range of sources and identifies relevant and key information

Writing

  • Prepares required documentation detailing finalised process in a logical manner using cohesive language

Planning and organising

  • Uses a combination of formal, logical planning processes to ensure work is completed according to time constraints and an increasingly intuitive understanding of context to identify relevant information and risks

Self-management

  • Demonstrates an understanding of securing information in relation to own work and takes personal responsibility for identifying and managing risk
  • Initiates standard procedures when solving a broad range of ICT problems
  • Complies with explicit organisational policies and procedures
  • Recognises and applies protocols governing what to communicate, with whom and how in a range of different contexts

Technology

  • Uses familiar digital systems and tools to access, organise, analyse and store information
  • Demonstrates an understanding of purposes, specific functions and key features of common digital systems and tools, and operates them effectively to complete routine tasks
