An explanation of observations and demonstrations: Observation is on-the-job The observation will usually require: Performing a work based skill or task Interaction with colleagues and/or customers. Demonstration is off-the-job A demonstration will require: Performing a skill or task that is asked of you Undertaking simulation exercise. Your trainer/assessor will inform you of which one of the above they would like you to do. The observation/demonstration will cover one of the unit’s elements. The observation/demonstration will take place either in the workplace or the training environment, depending on the task to be undertaken and whether it is an observation or demonstration. Your trainer/assessor will ensure you are provided with the correct equipment and/or materials to complete the task. They will also inform you of how long you have to complete the task. You should be able to demonstrate the skills, knowledge and performance criteria required for competency in this unit, as seen in the Learner Guide. HA_SITXCCS008_Learner Workbook V2.0_7Dec2017

Third Party Guide You should supply details of the third party to the assessor before you commence the activities (see below), unless the assessor has already selected a third party themselves. The assessor can then contact the third party in instances where they require more evidence to determine competency, or they cannot observe certain tasks themselves. The reasons to use a third party may include: Assessment is required in the workplace Where there are health and safety issues related to observation Patient confidentiality and privacy issues are involved. If you are not employed, or able to complete demonstrative tasks in the workplace, you will need to inform the assessor. They will be able to provide you with a simulated environment in which to complete these tasks. We would prefer that, wherever possible, these be “live” issues for your industry and require application of the principles that you are learning as part of your training. Where this is not possible, you and your third party should simulate the activity tasks and demonstrations that you believe would be likely to arise in your organisation or job role. Third party evidence can also be used to provide “everyday evidence” of tasks included in your work role that relate to the unit of competency but are not a part of the formal assessment process. The third party is not to be used as a co-assessor – the assessor must make the final decision on competency themselves. Documents relevant to collection of third party evidence are included in the Third Party section in the Observations/Demonstrations document. Third party details (required information from the learner) A third party may be required for observations or demonstrations; please provide details below of your nominated third party and obtain their signature to confirm their agreement to participate.
