Qualification description & entry requirements

QUALIFICATION CODE

PSP50121

QUALIFICATION TITLE

Diploma of Government

QUALIFICATION DESCRIPTION

This qualification allows for the attainment of competencies required for independent and self-directed work in the public sector. There may be supervisory responsibilities.

 

The generalist qualification is particularly suited to those working in an environment where there are a range of responsibilities which are diverse in nature rather than within a narrow specialisation.  They may work in small or regionally based organisations. Chosen elective units should reflect the responsibilities of the individual.

 

The three specialisation streams; injury management, workplace inspection and policy; outline the skills required to work in each of the specialty roles in the public sector.

 

The skills in this qualification must be applied in accordance with Commonwealth and State or Territory legislation, Australian standards and industry codes of practice.

 

No occupational licensing, certification or specific legislative requirements apply to this qualification at the time of publication.

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

There are no entry requirements for this qualification.

Unit description

"Also not sure of this sentence in the unit description 'range of responsibilities which are diverse in nature rather than within a narrow specialisation'. Inspectors undertaking this qualification are working in a specialised vocation. "

"Not sure the relevance of the sentence for these qualifications "they may work in small or regionally based organisations". I would suggest that it is the reverse as people undertaking this qualification are from public sector agencies which are very large."

Support the new units and structure

"Feel the new qualification and new units of competency are better aligned to the skill set and the inclusion of the written communication unit fills a significant core skill gap"

Write complex docs

"Smart move to include this as a core unit. This skill set is fundamental to inspector work and complements the written aspect for the other UoC's for the qualification."

Promote Diversity

"This unit does not reflect what Inspectors actually do. Would suggest PSPGEN015 Work Effectively with diversity should replace PSPGEN047 Promote Diversity. "

Re Diversity Unit in core

"The level of the Diversity unit shown within this is not in line with the role and functions of those who would normally undertake this unit. Recommend changing this unit to 'work effectively with diversity'"

Swap units

"It would be logical to move the BSBWHS unit out of the specialisation and into the WHS unit options, and move the new PSPWPI unit out of the WHS options and into the workplace inspection specialisation. This maintains the separation of more generalised WHS from the inspection specialisation."

Group C - workplace inspection specialization

"The inclusion of the BSBWHS414 unit is excellent as this does fill a gap in ensuring knowledge and understanding of WHS risk management The changes made to the 'evaluate and report on workplace legislative compliance' and the 'educate and facilitate workplace legislative improvements' units also bring a reality back into the role and closes gaps highlighted in various reports "
