Manufacturing communication

Proposed micro-credential

Your input is sought! After initial discussions, and in response to ongoing industry demand, Competenz is planning on developing a short programme (micro-credential) for communication skills.

Why communication?

Communication has for some time been high on the list of skills development and been requested by industry.

This is an opportunity to ensure that your employees have the communication skillset required to contribute to the achievement of production targets.

This unit standard and corresponding assessment demand

 

Communication with colleagues to ensure the safe completion of production tasks is demonstrated.

 

Communication with the team leader to clarify instructions related to production tasks is demonstrated.

 

Collaboration with colleagues to ensure the safe completion of production tasks is demonstrated.

 

Collaboration with colleagues and/or team leader to troubleshoot and/or report immediate production issues is demonstrated.

 

Production tasks are completed according to instructions.

 

Why a micro-credential?

It is now possible that Unit Standard 32318: Communicate effectively and work co-operatively to complete production tasks in a manufacturing environment (Level 2, 5 credits) could be delivered as a micro-credential.

The option of delivering this unit as a micro-credential allows:

  • Workplaces whose employees have previously completed the New Zealand Certificate in Manufacturing (Level 2) the opportunity to have their communication skills assessed via this short duration programme, providing confidence to employers.
  • Employees to continue into the New Zealand Certificate in Manufacturing (Level 2) at a later date.
