Bicycle Sector Update – April 2013
The bicycle sector committee had their meeting on April 11th at ASA’s Melbourne office.
As with the other sectors, we looked at examples of the DRAFT streamlined bicycle units, the committee had an in-depth look at the streamlined model with discussions around unit format, foundation skills and assessment requirements.
However, the committee grabbed the opportunity and ‘un-packed’ a unit of competence looking at the key areas and added industry specific content which truly reflects the required skills.
The committee also requested that when the balance of the units are in a ‘version’ one streamlined draft, I’m to forward the units to the committee for industry engagement and feedback.
The key areas addressed by the committee was in the ‘performance evidence’, ‘foundation skills’, incorporating the ACSF requirements, the ‘range of conditions’ with the replacement of ‘may to must include and the number of times a trainee is required to successfully complete a task.
The committee was also informed that ASA had conducted a National RTO forum program, which informed RTO’s of the streamlining program, packaging rules and transition and teach out requirements.
A copy the 2013 E-Scan was also given to the committee.
The committee was informed that the next meeting will be in Melbourne in early September.
