RUH20198 Certificate II in Horticulture
product has been noted
(endorsed) by the National Training
Quality Council (NTQC).
This Toolbox is available for purchase.
The Horticulture Toolbox provides realistic workplace scenarios and problems for Indigenous students studying selected units of competency at the lower Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) levels, 1 and 2.
The Toolbox has been customised to cater to the needs of Indigenous students in Horticulture, particularly trainees in rural areas who currently are required to travel to the cities to undertake “block release” training. It will also be of benefit to employers who would prefer to provide on-the-job training using the enterprise’s equipment, machinery and plant material.
The Toolbox is set within a fictitious horticultural setting that includes a garden area, a Meeting Place, a nursery, machinery shed, and a lunchroom. This provides learners with a familiar environment in which tasks and activities occur.
Each activity can be completed alone or in conjunction with other activities in that unit to form a meaningful learning experience. As students work through the various problems presented to them they can seek guidance from a number of authentic online workplace resources: resident experts, reference books and magazines.
