First release. Supersedes and equivalent to PSP60104

Description

This qualification covers the competencies required for work in the public sector which is autonomous and often non-routine. The qualification is targeted at those who enter the public sector with another qualification as well as those progressing within the sector. It is generalist in nature to suit the requirements of working in small or regionally based organisations or where responsibilities are diverse in nature rather than within a narrow specialisation. There will be management or guidance of others without the role being that of a specialist manager, which is catered for in the Advanced Diploma of Government (Management). Electives should reflect the responsibilities of the individual and the job skills required for effective performance. Where a free choice of electives is possible in the qualification packaging rules, electives may also be drawn from other Training Packages to reflect the work context and career plans of the individual. Please note that if all electives are chosen from a single competency field a specialist qualification may result.
