Processes require a wide range of specialised technical skills involving a wide choice of standard and non standard procedures in a variety of routine and non-routine contexts. The learning demands a broad knowledge base with substantial depth in some areas, employing analytical interpretation and the determination of appropriate methods and procedures in response to a range of concrete problems, with some theoretical elements. Learners have full responsibility for the nature, quantity and quality of outcomes under broad general guidelines in self directed and sometimes directive activity.
