SECTION 1 - GENERAL INFORMATION
This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to plan, draft and finalise a basic document.
It applies to individuals who apply a broad range of competencies in various work contexts and may exercise some discretion and judgement to produce a range of workplace documentation.
A note on Plagiarism and Referencing
Plagiarism is a form of theft and is avoided where information from another source is acknowledged with quotation marks around the relevant words/sentences or ideas, and cited at the end of your document. This means a list of the sources of information is provided in alphabetical order by each author’s surname (including author’s full name, name of document/ book, website, and year and place of publishing) such that the assessor or another reader may locate the source information if necessary.
IMPORTANT! Feedback and Resubmissions
ABS Policy states that students are required to submit assessments by the due date provided for that unit of competency.
Students who present assignments by the due date will receive feedback on their work in a timely manner for them to benefit in preparing for the next assessment task.
Students who submit an assessment that does not adequately demonstrate their competence or is incomplete, will be marked as NS (Not Satisfactory) for the relevant assessment item.
A second opportunity to complete an assessment to demonstrate competence will then be given to the student. This opportunity will not incur a penalty, provided the second submission is deemed competent and the first was handed in by the due date and the re-submission is handed in by its due date (to be decided by the trainer, based on individual student factors).
If a student does not pass their second attempt at an assessment or examination then a ‘NC’ will be recorded and the student will be required to pay a “Third Submission fee” of $50 (per assessment not completed in two attempts).
If a student does not pass their third attempt at an assessment or re-examination then a ‘NC’ will be recorded and the student will be required to re-enrol in the unit and pay the appropriate tuition fee for that unit.
Extensions
Requests for extensions must be made in writing a minimum of one week prior to the due date of that unit of competency, to the student’s teacher for consideration. Only students that demonstrate exceptional circumstances will qualify for an extension. Students can access the complaints and appeals policy if they are unhappy with a result or feedback received.
If you would like more information on the unit of competency, please refer to the Training website www.training.gov.au for unit of competency descriptors.
