Competency Analysis for Human Resource Developers.
Geering, Adrian D.
In the Associate Diploma in Training and Development program at the South Australian College of Advanced Education, all students undertake an initial unit of study entitled "Competency Analysis for Human Resource Developers." The unit is structured into sections dealing with study hints and essay writing, characteristics of human resource development (HRD), personal and career development, and the structure of the associate diploma program. During this unit of study, students may complete a series of competency checklists to evaluate their prior learning and thereby determine which electives to choose and which level of exemption to apply for. Status may be granted to a maximum of 50 percent of the total point value of the program. It is generally expected that full-time students would study on an external basis, completing 4 points (1 unit) over a 10-week term at a workload of about 16 hours per week. Part-time internal or external students would earn between four and eight points per term. Whereas external studies courses at the college generally experience a 35 to 40 percent attrition rate, the Associate Diploma in Training and Development boasts a 25 percent attrition rate for 1985. (Appendixes to this report include the study plan for the program and competency analysis checklists for each of the 16 units offered in it.) (MN)
