VET Competencies Mapped to Course Units

Grouping of competencies within units may not be changed by individual colleges. Grouping of half units is
restricted to patterns shown below.

Competencies designated at the Certificate III level can only be delivered by schools that have scope to do
so.
Colleges must apply to have additional competencies at a higher level listed on their scope of
registration.


Students are
expected

to
study
BSSS
accredited semester (1.0) units unless enrolled in a 0.5 unit due to late
entry or early exit in a semester.

NOTE: When selecting units, colleges must ensure that they follow packaging rules and meet the
requirements for the Certificate level. In the event that full Certificate requirements are not met a
Statement of Attainment will be issued.

Evaluation of Previous Course

T
he information technology industry
rapidly
changes, with the introduction
of new products,
methods and technologies
.
This course has been revised to
reflect

these changes as well as
the new

Information and Communications Technology Training Package (ICA11) and revised

requirements in
the
Information Technology Framework (2011).

The previous
version

of the Information Technology course cater
ed

for diverse groups of students
who undertake IT studies
, through the implementation of streams. This
included

students
se
eking to
study IT at university
, enter the
workforce post college
or

who enjoy IT and computing and wish to
expand their knowledge and skills but are not likely to continue formal studies in this area or seek
employment in the IT industry. This concept of streams within the course has been continued as it
provides informa
tion and guidance for students when selecting the units
of

study
. H
owever
,

it is not
a requi
rement that colleges implement
streams.
Colleges, especially those with smaller faculties and
class

numbers can
select units
from across the streams
t

different specialisations

providing they observe Board of Senior Secondary Studies (BSSS) duplication
of content rules
.

In reviewing the
previous course
the writers have carefully reduced the number of units based on
overlapping co
ncepts and
any
out dated

or redundant technologies. Most units have continued to
offer a 0.5 option, where possible,

to accommodate early exit or late entry of students but

the
expectation is that students will undertake a full semester of study in a unit

as per B
SSS
guidelines.
I
n some cases there
are

no half standard unit
s,

in recognition of the time it takes to develop the
knowledge and skills
required before effective formal assessment can take place.
Semester length
units also allow for a more rigorous
open ended
assessment task
that demonstrates the depth and
breadth of knowledge and skills required by the specific unit goals
. This focus on a rigorous

assessment approach
is necessary to allow
student
s to demonstrate

higher order thinking skills and
the academic skills required for university studies.

In collecting evaluation feedback
on the previous course
from a range of stakeholder
s

there was
some concern in regards to the Certificate II level qual
ification and the perceived low level
underpinning knowledge and skills required. Some parties were concerned that vocational education
and training (VET) had in fact lowered the academic rigour of the IT course. The writers acknowledge
the important role
that VET play
s

in providing alternative pathways for students to further training.
They also want to make it clear that the units of competence within the course are delivered and
assessed concurrently within the course and that the specific unit goals set the outcomes
required
within the
T
ertiary unit. The writers have
included a Certificate III level qualification in the new
course for colleges that have the staff
who

meet

Training Package requirements for
industry
qualifications and currency to deliver this program.

The Information Technology course has been
enhanced

by the streamlining of the course structure,
the inclusion of new areas of study and the removal
of old technologies
. It has been strengthened
with a range of new
units

that allow students to demonstrate

higher order thinking skills required for
tertiary studies and by
the inclusion of Certificate III
level competencies. Professional d
iscussions and
evaluation of
the course
will be ongoing
as teachers implement the new course. The writers

believe
that
thi
s course provides
teachers
with
a range of exciting and challenging units to
meet the needs
and interests of students wanting to pursue careers and further study in the IT industry.

Implementation
Guidelines

Compulsory units

There are no compulsory BSSS accredited units in this course. However, there are Units of
Competence that are
core

to specific qualifications and need to be achieved in order to gain a
vocational certificate.

ication packaging rules on pages 6

Arrangements for students continuing study
in this course

Students continuing in this course from the previous course must study units not previously
undertaken. Please refer to Duplication of Content rules for further
information on duplication in
units within the course.

New and/or Updated Training Package

Training Package
s are regularly updated through the mandatory continuous improvement cycle. This
may result in updating of qualifications and a change in the composi
tion of competencies. Where
qualifications for the new Training Package have been

deemed to be equivalent
, students may
continue their study without interruption. Students will be granted direct credit for those
competencies already achieved.

Where there a
re new competencies or updated competencies with significant change and these are
deemed not equivalent, students may apply for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) for all or part of
competencies.

Granting of RPL for competencies does not equate to points

towards the Year 12 Certificate. Refer to
RPL

on
page 23.

Duplication of Content

Duplication of Content Rules

Students cannot be given credit towards the requirements for a Year 12 Certificate for a unit that
significantly duplicates content in a unit studied in another course.
The responsibility for preventing
undesirable overlap of content studied by a student r
ests with the principal and the teacher
delivering the course. While it is acceptable for a student to be given the opportunity to demonstrate
competence over more than one semester, substantial overlap of content is not permitted. Students
will only be gi
ven credit f
or covering the content once.

Subject

Rationale

Information Technology is the study of information and intelligent systems, software development
and application, hardware implementation, human computer interface/interaction and social, ethical
and environmental issues. IT is integral to all a
spects of contemporary society. Rapid and continuing
advances in IT are changing the ways people share, use, develop and process information. The study
of IT empowers individuals to participate in a rapidly changing technological world.

This course will e
nable students to:



develop essential skills in literacy and numeracy, and be creative and productive users of
technology, as a foundation for success in all learning areas



develop confidence and capabilities to pursue university or post
