Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1. Supersedes and is equivalent to LMTFP3006B Apply foot anatomy principles to footwear production

Application

This unit of competency covers the skills and knowledge required to identify and describe the main structure and functions of the foot and to apply these principles to the design and production of footwear.

The unit of competency applies to identifying the structure and functions of the foot and how normal footwear design features meet these requirements. The unit of competency does not cover abnormal anatomy or medical conditions affecting feet. The retailing, alteration and manufacture of footwear for clients needing shoes or prostheses for surgical and medical conditions are covered by the Medical Grade Footwear units and qualifications.

The unit applies to small manufacturers making footwear by hand and dealing direct with the public.

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

Assessment requirements

Modification History

Release 1. Supersedes and is equivalent to LMTFP3006B Apply foot anatomy principles to footwear production

Performance Evidence

Evidence required to demonstrate competence in this unit must be relevant to and satisfy the requirements of the elements and performance criteria, and include:

  • reading and following work instructions, standard operating procedures SOPs), safe work practices and other reference material
  • applying relevant standards

  • identifying footwear features and function
  • identifying at least five (5) different footwear products and relating their functions and features to the anatomy of the foot
  • identifying the effect of poor-fitting or poorly made shoes
  • assessing the impact of footwear features
  • identifying medical or surgical conditions that may require referral to a specialist practitioner
  • identifying quality processes used in workplace to ensure production of optimal footwear products.

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
  • structures and function of the foot:
  • muscles
  • bones
  • ligaments
  • joints
  • circulation systems
  • nervous system
  • role and function of the foot:
  • balance
  • walking
  • standing
  • running
  • climbing
  • specific sports
  • kicking
  • jumping
  • features and function of footwear:
  • steel caps
  • moulded soles
  • heels
  • reinforcement
  • lining
  • laces and buckles
  • elastic sides
  • size
  • shape
  • types of footwear and their relationship to anatomy of the foot:
  • safety boots

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 applying foot anatomy principles to footwear production, 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.
