Special Notes

    1 This unit standard only requires written communication to demonstrate performance

    where it is specified in the performance criteria. In general responses may be oral,

    non-verbal, or written according to the abilities of the candidate.

    2 Read means the candidate can extract meaning from printed or electronic text. It is

    not a test of memory. The demonstration of the ability to extract meaning from text is

    the performance required to demonstrate competence. This is separate from reading

    aloud, which is a presentation skill.

Please Note

    Providers must be accredited by NZQA, or an inter-institutional body with delegated authority for quality assurance, before they can report credits from assessment against unit standards or deliver courses of study leading to that assessment.

    Industry Training Organisations must be accredited by NZQA before they can register credits from assessment against unit standards.

    Accredited providers and Industry Training Organisations assessing against unit standards must engage with the moderation system that applies to those standards.

    Accreditation requirements and an outline of the moderation system that applies to this standard are outlined in the Accreditation and Moderation Action Plan (AMAP). The AMAP also includes useful information about special requirements for organisations wishing to develop education and training programmes, such as minimum qualifications for tutors and assessors, and special resource requirements.
