Language benchmarks

"Information identifying the indicative language level of this unit has been removed. This unit was customised from the SITXLAN41_ suite of units developed in association with Griffiths University to assess vocational LOTE competence and in conceptualisation, benchmarks broadly against ISLPR 4 to 4+. In the interests of the integrity of this unit and clear and unambiguous understanding of the benchmark it describes, that or equivalent information must remain in the Application. In particular, it is inappropriate to include a statement to the effect that it should be ensured that 'learners have sufficient capability in the language to undertake this unit'. A unit of competency is a benchmark for assessment against which a candidate can be trained to achieve that benchmark. It is not logical to make a determination that a candidate is able to meet a benchmark before the candidate has been trained and/or assessed against the benchmark!""
