Unit of competency

Modification History

Release 1. Unit code, Title and Application changed. Elements and Performance Criteria restructured. Foundation Skills field populated. Range of Conditions removed with relevant information moved to Knowledge Evidence. Assessment Requirements clarified with generic foundation skills statements moved to appropriate section and duplication with Performance Criteria removed. Supersedes and is equivalent to MSTLG2006 Identify materials used in leather goods production.

Application

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to source information about leather goods and identify uses and performance characteristics of the different types of materials used in their production. It includes a focus on the broader context for leather goods production, including sustainability considerations.

This unit applies to any individual whose role relates to the production of leather goods.

No licensing or certification requirements exist at the time of publication. Relevant legislation, industry standards and codes of practice within Australia must be applied.

Competency Field

Leather production

Elements and Performance Criteria

Elements 

Performance Criteria 

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.

1. Source information on leather goods production

1.1 Identify and access information about leather goods and their production

1.2 Identify regulatory or standards frameworks that impact the production of leather goods

1.3 Identify sustainability frameworks and approaches to sustainability that impact the production of leather products

2. Identify how materials and their characteristics impact production

2.1 Review information and identify types, performance characteristics and handling requirements of materials used in leather goods production

2.2 Identify types of surface finishes used on materials in production

2.3 Identify the impacts of material characteristics and their handling requirements on production activities

2.4 Identify common material faults, problems and surface defects and the quality practices used in production to address these

Foundation Skills

This section describes those language, literacy, numeracy and employment skills that are essential to performance but not explicit in the performance criteria.

  • Reading skills to interpret unfamiliar information about leather goods and their production.

Other foundation skills essential to performance are explicit in the performance criteria of this unit.
