  • Main Points to take from this event.

19
Construction Crafts Competence Assessment. (Phase

  • Only a small number of candidates are likely to
    need

    only be
  • needed on a very few occasions.
  • Initial Phase Tests to take place in MayJune.
  • Pay rises will be automatic . Concentrate on
    delivering the unit
  • leave pay to CITB/SBATC/SPADAC .
  • All apprentices will progress automatically.
  • Re assessment should take place immediately at
    the end of each test ,with a focus only on
    aspects they have not achieved,
  • treat like any other unit. SQA policy is
    up to two resits.
  • If necessary a re-sit can be taken early
    in the next
  • term. Discuss with AO

    the qualification.
  • Further Questions at the Plenary .

21
Generic Units in a single TAP.
  • Associated Subjects.
  • The review of the TAPs during autumn and
    winter 2012 resulted in some Generic Units being
    merged into a single TAP covering
  • - Scientific
    Principles.
  • - Construction
    Drawing/ Sketching.
  • - Insulation
    and sustainability.

22
Generic Units in a single TAP.
  • It was agreed that each craft area would identify
    what and where within the specialist TAPs each
    of the following outcomes were being addressed.
  • 1. Identifies scientific principles to be
    covered throughout
  • the relevant Craft PDA
  • Number and specific principles must be
    relevant to each occupational area, however a
    minimum of four scientific principles is
    required.
  • 2. Interpret and/or produce occupational
    construction sketches and/or drawings throughout
    the relevant Craft PDA
  • Number and type relevant to each
    occupational area, however a minimum of three
    sketches or drawings required.
  • 3. Complete craft construction practices used to
    increase insulation or reduce carbon emissions
  • Number relevant to each occupational area,
    however a minimum of two construction practices

Delivery in 2013- 2014 . New PDA new
TAPs
  • In 2012-2013 all centres used the mapping
    exercises specific to each craft. This allowed
    the new PDAs to be delivered using the OLD TAPs.
  • In 2013-2014 we should again follow the
    individual craft mapping exercise but we need to
    use the NEW TAPs.

28
Delivery in 2012- 2013 . New PDA Old
TAPs
  • Guidelines sent to centres with the mapping
    exercises.
  • The attached Construction Craft mapping sheets
    identify old TAPs assessments which meet the
    requirements of the new PDA units for each craft.
  • 2012 2013.
  • For PDA specialist units in academic year
    2012-2013 the evidence required for
    verification is the knowledge evidence, tasks,
    tests, checklists and feedback sheets available
    in the old TAPs and the resultant candidate
    product evidence.
  • For PDA specialist or generic units with no
    mapped old TAPs you should reschedule these to
    be delivered in academic year 2013-2014 when the
    new TAPs for these units will be available.

29
Delivery in 2013- 2014 . New PDA new
TAPs
  • As of August 2013, all new TAPs will be published
    and therefore will replace the old TAPs in
    academic year 2013-2014.
