PREFACE

In 1999, The National Training Agency (NTA) was established out of the CARICOM (1990) Regional strategy on Technical, Vocational, Education and Training (TVET). The NTA was mandated by the Government to assist in the creation of a workforce that is certified, competent, innovative, enterprising, and entrepreneurial, a workforce that can thrive in the fast changing world. Through the Technical, Vocational, Education and Training (TVET) system, the NTA aims to achieve and sustain the strategies defined for developing a more innovative workforce. The emerging global economic order and rapid technological changes demand higher levels of education and training to satisfy the requirements of the twenty first century workforce. The National Occupational Standards (NOS) therefore provide a foundation for the development of key human resources in today’s workforce, as occupational standards enhances the employability and competitiveness of everyone in the workforce. As Trinidad and Tobago aims to stay competitive in the global arena, there is a need to ensure that citizens meet the agreed minimum best practice within the occupational area. The creation of Occupational Standards aims to facilitate this process. The purpose and intent of this document is to create greater public access to the National Occupational Standards (NOS) and Regional Occupational Standards (ROS).

v NATIONAL OCCUPATIONAL STANDARDS


Occupational Standards of competence, identify the knowledge, skills and attitudes required for effective workplace performance. They specify what a person should know and do in order to carry out the functions of a particular job in the work environment. The Occupational Standards and Sector Support (OS&SS) department of the National Training Agency (NTA) is responsible for developing Occupational Standards, in collaboration with the Lead Body, which consists of industry experts in the specific occupational area. These NOS become ROS after gaining approval from CARICOM and can then be accessed by all CARICOM members. NOS and ROS are used to assess the competency of candidates in the issuance of the Trinidad & Tobago National Vocational Qualification (TTNVQ) and the Caribbean Vocational Qualification (CVQ) respectively.

OCCUPATIONAL STANDARDS DEFINITION AND STRUCTURE

1 NATIONAL OCCUPATIONAL STANDARDS


Occupational Standards form the basis for the Competency Based Education and Training (CBET) approach. CBET is a system of education and training that is designed to ensure that upon leaving the education and training system learners possess the requisite competencies or outcomes (knowledge, skills and attitude) that meet the needs and interests of the workplace. The CBET is adopted by many developed countries such as Australia, Germany, New Zealand, United Kingdom, Canada, France, Sweden, Japan and the United States. Occupational Standards of competence comprise various components, namely, the Qualification Plan, the Title of Units, Unit Descriptor, Elements, Performance Criteria, Range Statement, Underpinning Knowledge and Skills and Evidence Guide. Qualification Plan The Qualification Plan identifies the units which are compulsory and those that are electives, to provide flexibility in different work environments. It also contains the Title and Level of the qualification to be awarded. Unit Title The unit title is a succinct statement of the outcome of the unit of competency.The Unit Title reflects the major activities or functions of an individual’s work. Unit Descriptor

Performance Criteria These are the descriptions of the outcomes of performance required for successful achievement of an element. They specify the required performance in relevant tasks, roles, skills and applied knowledge that enables competent performance. Range Statement This describes the essential operating conditions that may be present with training and assessment, depending on the work situation, needs of the candidate, accessibility of the item and local industry contexts. It lists the parameters in which candidates much demonstrate their competence. Underpinning Skills and Knowledge Knowledge identifies what a person needs to know to perform the work in an informed and effective manner. Skills describe the application of knowledge to situations where understanding is converted into a workplace outcome. Evidence Guide The Evidence Guide is critical in assessment as it provides information to Training Providers and Assessors about how the described competency may be demonstrated. It provides a range of evidence for the Assessor to make determinations and defines the assessment context.

The unit descriptor communicates the content of the unit of competency and the skill area it addresses. Elements These are the basic building blocks of the unit of competency. They describe the tasks in which competence should be demonstrated in order to carry out the specific function.

2 NATIONAL OCCUPATIONAL STANDARDS


KEY USES OF OCCUPATIONAL STANDARDS TO INDUSTRY

Prepare job descriptions and specifications

Structure learning programmes

In using the standards for preparing job descriptions, the purpose of the job must first be established, that is, where the job fits in the organization and the job title. The next step includes identifying the main tasks and responsibilities of the job, which can be obtained from the relevant standards. The standards comprise of a list of units which can be used as a checklist to select the ones relevant to the functions of the job. The units along with the current job description, input from current job holders and other specific requirements for the post will identify the main tasks for the job. The units selected also contains the skill and knowledge requirements, which will assist in preparing the person specification for the job. The person specification also contains relevant qualifications and experience required. In completing the job description, the remuneration package, summary of terms and conditions, any necessary background information, the title of the post to whom the job holder would report to and whether there are any subordinates must also be included.

Occupational standards can be used by employers to set out the learning outcomes they expect from training. The relationship between training programmes and occupational area can be mapped to create an opportunity for better understanding between themselves and the employers who are the purchasers of the training.

Determine recruitment criteria

Occupational standards can be used as part of an organization’s appraisal process, to assist with setting objectives, to help with evaluating employees’ performance and identifying development needs. One of the advantages of using occupational standards is that it gives employees a recognized good-practice framework to work towards, providing benchmarks against which performance can be assessed and supporting further development needs of employees.

Occupational Standards can be used as a basis for recruitment of staff. The use of standards allows for a fair and effective recruitment process, with both candidates and employers clear about what is required. The standards assist in preparing the job description, which will be used as a basis for writing the job advertisement. The standards can also be used to prepare questions for the job interview. Interview questions and criteria can be prepared to test the candidates’ level of experience, knowledge, skill and understanding against the requirements set in the relevant standards. This competency based approach allows for fair assessment of candidates against objective criteria and supports equal opportunities in the recruitment practice.

3 NATIONAL OCCUPATIONAL STANDARDS

Employee development Occupational Standards contain descriptions of best practice. Employees can use the standards to assess their own performance against a clear and objective description of their job as well as assess their competence against other jobs, and thus gauge their suitability for future career moves. The different levels of standards enable both managers and individual staff to be clear about future development and training, to enable individuals to undertake work at a more complex level. (See Appendix Performance Review Self-Assessment form Appraisal of Staff Performance


Using the occupational standards as part of the appraisal process involves first identifying the standards relevant to the job role, including any generic standards such communication and health and safety skills that are relevant to the role. The standards are also used to identify what level of performance must be achieved. The next step involves setting objectives as the appraisal process will involve comparing employee performance to clear and agreed objectives. The occupational standards are beneficial to the staff appraisal process as it will allow employees to demonstrate their competence against the agreed objectives. This can be vital to any organization as a diagnostic tool to assist with identifying areas for improvement or support as well as training and development needs. It will also assist organizations with diagnosing why individual performance may not be meeting expectations.

which of the tasks from the standards the individual has to meet, identify what training and development plans are required. Once the training and development needs of staff have been assessed and the ways to meet them have been identified, a training and development plan for the organization can be prepared, as well as individual plans for each member of staff.

(See Appendix for 115 Uses of Occupational Standards)

Identify Training Needs Occupational Standards can be used by employers to set out the learning outcomes they expect from training. Training providers are now mapping the relationship between their programmes and the standards, thereby creating an opportunity for better understanding between themselves and employers. The Standards can be used to support employees in identifying and developing needs, both to improve their performance in their current role, and to support their career progression. To identify training needs the areas for development must first be identified, followed by the standards relevant to the role. Competence then needs to be assessed by how confident and competent the individual feels in each area. In the areas that need developing, review the underpinning knowledge criteria for the unit and identify whether there are particular areas where knowledge and skills can be developed in order to support the individual’s performance. Once it has been agreed as to
