1 THE AUSTRALIAN CORE SKILLS FRAMEWORK ACSF ASCF Jan 2013 developed by CIT WELL Team

2 5 CORE SKILLS - 5 Levels of Performance 3 Domains ASCF Jan 2013 developed by CIT WELL Team

3 Performance Indicators ACSF PERFORMANCE INDICATORS Core SkillIndicator NumberDescription Learning.01 Active awareness of self as a learner, planning and management of learning.02Acquisition and application of practical strategies that facilitate learning Reading.03Audience, purpose and meaning-making.04Reading strategies Writing.05Audience, purpose and meaning-making.06The mechanics of writing Oral Communication.07Speaking.08Listening Numeracy.09Identifying mathematical information and meaning in activities and texts.10 Using and applying mathematical knowledge and problem solving processes.11Communicating and representing mathematics ASCF Jan 2013 developed by CIT WELL Team

4 Performance Variables SUPPORTCONTEXTTEXT COMPLEXITYTASK COMPLEXITY 1 Works alongside an expert/mentor where prompting and advice can be provided Highly familiar contexts Concrete and immediate Very restricted range of contexts Short and simple Highly explicit purpose Limited, highly familiar vocabulary Concrete tasks of 1 or 2 steps Processes include locating, recognising 2 May work with an expert/mentor where support is available if requested Familiar and predictable contexts Limited range of contexts Simple familiar texts with clear purpose Familiar vocabulary Explicit tasks involving a limited number of familiar steps Processes include identifying, simple interpreting, simple sequencing 3 Works independently and uses own familiar support resources Range of familiar contexts Some less familiar contexts Some specialisation in familiar/known contexts Routine texts May include some unfamiliar elements, embedded information and abstraction Includes some specialised vocabulary Tasks involving a number of steps Processes include sequencing, integrating, interpreting, simple extrapolating, simple inferencing, simple abstracting 4 Works independently and initiates and uses support from a range of established resources Range of contexts, including some that are unfamiliar and/or unpredictable Some specialisation in less familiar/known contexts Complex texts Embedded information Includes specialised vocabulary Includes abstraction and symbolism Complex task organisation and analysis involving application of a number of steps Processes include extracting, extrapolating, inferencing, reflecting, abstracting 5 Autonomous learner who accesses and evaluates support from a broad range of sources Broad range of contexts Adaptability within and across contexts Specialisation in one or more contexts Highly complex texts Highly embedded information Includes highly specialized language and symbolism Sophisticated task conceptualisation, organisation and analysis Processes include synthesising, critically reflecting, evaluating, recommending ASCF Jan 2013 developed by CIT WELL Team

5 Performance Features ( and focus areas ) More detailed description of the types of things a person would do at each level. Focus area : look at areas to check out when looking at that core skill eg. reading Performance Features : look at what the student is doing. ASCF Jan 2013 developed by CIT WELL Team

6 Domains of Communication TEXT TYPEPERSONAL AND COMMUNITY WORKPLACE AND EMPLOYMENT EDUCATION AND TRAINING ProceduralRecipeStandard operating procedures Instructions for completing assessment task Persuasive to local council complaining about cat registration bylaws Report for CEO presenting argument and recommendations for a particular piece of new equipment Oral presentation on an issue in area of study/expertise InformativeClub newsletter Report on different approaches to risk management used in the industry Research paper on main developments in OHS in the last 20 years CreativePoemDesign project Advertising copy or short story TechnicalExplanation of parts of a camera Instruction manual for a new piece of equipment Report on advantages of a new computer system in a library RegulatoryCouncil planning permission formIndustry standards list Course completion requirements DescriptiveRecount of trip to botanic gardensMemo outlining new office furnitureEssay comparing two paintings ASCF Jan 2013 developed by CIT WELL Team

7 USING THE ACSF An overview of the steps / stages in development in the 5 core skills Assist with planning Assessment of levels – identifies gaps Funding – WELL, LLNP reporting tool ASCF Jan 2013 developed by CIT WELL Team

8 AQF The Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) is a single, 10 level, coherent framework for qualifications in the school, VET and higher education sectors in Australia. The levels of the AQF do not match up directly with the performance levels of the ACSF. This is because of the way that units of competency and qualifications have been written. Effective performance in different industries requires different core skills and core skill requirements will also vary in different contexts. As the core skill requirements of AQF qualifications reflect the requirements of the occupational and academic contexts to which they relate, it follows that two qualifications at the same AQF level can have different core skill requirements.

9 The ACSF and the AQF EXAMPLES Qualifications in building and plumbing have higher Numeracy requirements than qualifications at the same AQF level in the areas of floristry or entertainment. the Numeracy level required to complete several units from the Certificate III in Electrotechnology - Electrician equates to ACSF level 5 The Reading knowledge required to complete several units in a Certificate IV in Business - Frontline Management equates to ACSF level 3 the Oral Communication skills required to complete units in a Certificate III in Aged Care equate to ACSF level 3.

10 The ACSF and CGEA The Course in Initial General Education for Adults is in broad alignment to ACSF Level 1. Certificate I (introductory) of the CGEA is in broad alignment to ACSF level 2. Certificate I of the CGEA is in broad alignment to ACSF Level 3. Certificate II of the CGEA is in broad alignment to ACSF Level 4. Certificate III of the CGEA is in broad alignment to ACSF Level 4 & 5. The CGEA was mapped against to ACSF in July ( since then the CGEA has been revised …. the revisions bring the CGEA more in line with the ACSF.
