9.) It should be noted that these 5 credits do not necessarily represent 50 notional hours of learning time for learners. As a standard aimed at facilitating learning, these outcomes should be integrated into the delivery of a specific learning programme. They should also be assessed in context of the specific learning programme, or any workplace training. The assessment of successful application of learning strategies and techniques will be done through integrated assessment in relation to the designated outcomes of the learning programme. The development of assessment tasks aimed directly at assessing these outcomes is optional.
