Qualification Packaging Rules – it’s a term we hear quite often in our world of Vocational Education and Training but one that we sometimes don’t understand.
We have put together a video and blog to assist you in understanding Qualification packaging rules, how they work and why they are important to understanding how Qualifications work.
Watch our Qualification Packaging Rules video on Youtube to gain a top-level understanding.
So let’s recap, the three most important things you need to know about Qualification packaging rules are:
Core units are MANDATORY and must be included in the ‘Package’, whereas elective units provide a choice/flexibility depending on the desired outcome,
Elective units may show as one list of elective units or maybe ‘Grouped’ into specialty areas to assist with unit selection. The ‘Rules’ will require selection from different groups (1 from Group A and two from Group B etc.)
If Elective units allow for importing of units of competency from different qualifications, then the electives chosen must reflect the desired job role and must be aligned with the appropriate AQF level of the qualification.
