  • checking pattern pieces, information and specifications for accuracy throughout garment production process
  • identifying and reporting garment production faults relating to pattern or pattern information and specifications
  • completing production documentation as required.

Knowledge Evidence

Evidence must be provided that demonstrates knowledge of:

  • safe work practices and procedures and use of personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • relevant Australian Standards
  • patternmaking and design terminology
  • impact of patternmaking on production
  • pattern markings:
  • notches

Assessment Conditions

  • Assessors must:
  • satisfy the assessor competency requirements that are in place at the time of the assessment, as set by the VET regulator
  • have vocational competency in interpreting patterns and applying pattern information, at least to the level being assessed, with relevant industry knowledge and experience.
  • Assessment should occur in operational workplace situations. Where this is not possible, or where personal safety or environmental damage are limiting factors, assessment must occur in a sufficiently rigorous simulated environment reflecting realistic operational workplace conditions. This must cover all aspects of workplace performance, including environment, task skills, task management skills, contingency management skills and job role environment skills.
  • Assessment processes and techniques must be appropriate to the language, literacy and numeracy requirements of the work being performed and the needs of the candidate.
