Learners will carry out processes that require a command of wide ranging highly specialised technical skills involving a wide choice of standard and non standard procedures often in non standard combinations. They are employed in highly variable routine and non-routine contexts. The learning demands employ a specialist knowledge base with depth in more than one area, employing the analysis and evaluation of a wide range of information and the formulation of appropriate responses to resolve both concrete and abstract problems. Learners have full responsibility in managing the learning processes and complete accountability for determining and achieving personal outcomes within broad parameters for defined activities.
