CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT FOR ASSESSABLE JOB ROLES
As reported in Employer Administrator Update #22, we outlined how some competencies were used across multiple job roles, and how updating the evidence would then cause the job role to require re-assessment, even if the updated evidence didn’t relate to that particular job role. If a competency was updated, any job roles that shared that competency would drop back to “invalid” until re-assessment had been conducted by an Assessor.
To resolve this, MTA have been working on replicating these competencies. This means creating individual competencies for each job role. This replication of competencies will allow an Employer Administrator to update the evidence requirements associated to the job role, without having any impact on any other assessable job roles.
MTA can advise that phase 1, 2 and 3 of the roll out have now been applied to the RIW System.
So what does this mean for cardholders and administrators?
Administrators will see additional awards of unique competencies on some cardholder profiles. Phase 2 deployment included the award of competencies containing a new, unique competency name and code, which is the competency name plus the job role name combined (refer screenshot below), and phase 3 then made these competencies valid. At this stage there is no impact to cardholders.
Phase 4, being deployed in the coming weeks, includes an update to job role definitions and groupings, which includes removing the original competency from the job role definition and replacing it with the unique version of the competency, while maintaining the assessment and job role status.
Please stay tuned for more information on phase 4 and any additional updates.
