TRAINING DELIVERY

The delivery of training should adhere to the design of the curriculum. Delivery should be guided by
the principles of competency-based training.
a) Course outline is based on competency standards/training regulations;
b) Training delivery is learner-centered and should accommodate individualized and self-
paced learning strategies;
c) Training can be done on an actual workplace setting or on a simulated workplace;

What is Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC)?

A competency-based curriculum is a framework or guide for the subsequent detailed


development of competencies, associated methodologies, training and assessment
resources.
The CBC specifies the outcomes which are consistent with the requirements of the
workplace as agreed through the industry or community consultations.
CBC can be developed immediately when competency standards exist.
When competency standards do not exist, curriculum developers need to clearly define
the learning outcomes to be attained. The standard of performance required must be
appropriate to industry and occupational needs through the industry/enterprise or
specified client group consultations.

These materials are available in both printed and electronic copies.
