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, industry codes and standards
  • planning and coordinating complicated cutting operations
  • preparing equipment and sorting materials before commencing operations
  • applying techniques over the full range of cutting operations to meet specifications
  • identifying scars, marks and fault areas in different types and grades of leather, and position patterns accordingly
  • using cutting techniques to match pattern shape, size and leather quality for a range of materials
  • cutting at least ten (10) pieces precisely to size, colour coded, and size and colour matched
  • checking finished products against job specifications and workplace standards and rectifying redeemable faults.

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
  • equipment required for both complicated and uncomplicated cutting operations
  • cutting board maintenance
  • leather types, their qualities and principles of cutting
  • enterprise standards
  • quality standards and practices
  • relevant federal and state or territory legislative or regulatory requirements
  • recording and reporting procedures.

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 cutting leather by hand, 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.
