ASSESSMENT 1 – STUDENT INFORMATION
This information is to be handed to each student to outline the assessment requirement. There are 3 parts to this assessment, please ensure that the student has completed all three.
Your assessor will provide you with the plans and inclusions for 108 – 110 Kanooka Grove Clayton, Victoria.
Part A: Project Schedule
You are to assume that you are the Project Manager in charge of the construction project at 108 – 110 Kanooka Grove Clayton, Victoria.
As the Project Manager you are required to create a project schedule for phase one of the project at 108 – 110 Kanooka Grove Clayton, Victoria. Phase one is the construction of the first three houses in this development.
You are required to include the following details in your schedule for phase one:
Type and number of subcontractors that you will need for the project, which should be ordered on the list based on construction sequence and volume
Scope of the work to be conducted
Total hours required for each function and stage
Timeframes for the project from start to finish
This may be done using the template provided or you may use your own template if you wish. The completed schedule must be submitted in your next timetabled class.
Please ensure you label each project with your name, student ID, unit code, title and assessment name. This is Assessment 1, Part A.
Part B:
For this task, you are required to go to https://www.comlaw.gov.au/Details/C2015C00244 (Fair Work (Building Industry) Act 2012 and carry out research.
Identify and rationalise three features that you feel must be integrated as part of a Subcontractor Agreement to clarify workplace obligations and subcontractor rights. Your rationalisation should be at least 1000 words.
You are also required to develop a procedure for the selection of subcontractors which must include: credit checks, the selection criteria to use, how to gather information about previous work history, equal opportunity principles and that you carry out qualification/licence checks. This should be at least 600 words.
These must be done on MS Word. When you have completed the report and procedure, they are to be printed and submitted in your next timetabled class.
Please ensure you label each project with your name, student ID, unit code, title and assessment name. This is Assessment 1, Part B.
Part C
For this assessment, your assessor will provide you with 6 templates which are: (operational profile, reference check template, short-listing template, worksite Inspection form, subcontractor management plan and subcontractor agreement template) and the resumes and applications of the 6 applicants for painting and plastering for the project.
Using the template provided, you are required to prepare an operational profile (template 1) for each of the subcontractors whose information you have received.
After preparing an operational profile for each applicant, you are required to undertake a reference check on each. For this, you are to use the reference check template (template 2) provided and develop at least 3 other questions which you must use to gain further information on each candidate.
The questions you ask must:
confirm the applicants role & responsibilities
obtain information on the applicants knowledge, skills and abilities
ascertain if the referee would recommend the applicant for the role
This will be done by role-play with your assessor who will be acting as the referee for each applicant. When you have developed the reference questions to ask, you must carry out a reference check for each of the subcontractor applicants. Your assessor will arrange a time for this to be carried out during class. While asking the referee (the assessor) the reference questions, you must accurately record the answers in the template. You will have approximately 2-3 minutes to carry out each check. This information will be used towards selecting a suitable subcontractor for each trade.
Based on the information provided in the profiles and after carrying out reference checks you must now use the short-listing template (template 3) to shortlist the two most appropriate subcontractors from each trade ensuring equal opportunities apply to all applicants and provide reasons for your choices.
After shortlisting two subcontractors from each trade, you are required to observe each one carrying out work. For this assessment, you will visit a simulated worksite where these trades will be working. You must observe them carrying out work and complete the Worksite Inspection form (template 4) to record the outcomes. (Refer to the instructions overleaf regarding the simulated worksite).
Based on the information you have gathered, you are now required to choose one subcontractor from each trade.
Draft a letter to the successful candidate informing them of their success and position title, starting date, and any special conditions of employment/requirements before commencement
Draft a letter to the unsuccessful candidate providing them with feedback on why they were not successful on this occasion
Prepare a management plan and the subcontractor terms of engagement, scope of work and quality requirements under the contract for each of the selected subcontractors using the subcontractor management plan (template 5) and agreement templates (template 6). (Section 2 of agreement template (compensation and expenses) can be left blank)  – On a separate word document you must draft the scope of work and quality requirements as an attachment to the subcontractor agreement. This should include a description of the scope of work to be carried out by each contractor and the quality requirements. This should be at least 500 words.
You are required to attach all completed templates and letters as evidence during first class of week 2.
Attending the simulated worksite
In order to carry out an observation of the candidates carrying out work, you will be required to visit a simulated worksite which is located at 122 Mitchell St. Maidstone VIC 3012.
You will be responsible for arranging a date and time range for visiting the site – this can be done by contacting the Foreman (Campus Manager) on 0425296978 to get details of suitable days and times to visit.
You will be responsible for arranging travel to and from there.
When you go there, there will be painters and plasterers carrying out work. Your assessor or the Foreman will let you know which painters and plasterers you are to observe for this part of the assessment.
Whilst observing, you will be required to complete the provided Worksite Inspection form for each subcontractor.
Your assessor or the Foreman will be completing a third party evidence report on your observations at the worksite.
Part D

Writing a policy on the induction/commencement/training of new subcontractors – the policy must include:
Purpose
