  • Collates, interprets and records data

Oral COMMUNICATION

  • Participates in verbal exchanges of information, articulating ideas and conclusions using language suitable to audiences

Reading

  • Critically sources, comprehends, analyses and applies information from a range of sources, to inform research processes

Writing

  • Documents relationships between information and ideas, and conveys specific and structured information, and analysis, in a style appropriate to the purpose and audience

Self-management

  • Identifies and takes responsibility for adherence to organisational procedures and protocols
