This is a progressive record of learning and should reflect on workplace exposure for the full duration of the course. It contains critical elements relating to the work that needs to be done, referred to as modules. For record-keeping purposes, each module is coded and relates to an objective guiding the student.
The Logbook must be available for inspection and verification during site visits by SAGMA/AgriSETA and QCTO.
The student must maintain the Logbook on a weekly basis. The student will give the Logbook to the mill mentor/training officer, which they must approve and initial:
- Assist only: means that the student performed work under the instruction of the Supervisor;
- Need Supervision means: the student performed his own work and asked for coaching/guidance when required;
- Independent work: means that the student performed work without any assistance or coaching.
The student may not expect to get workplace exposure in the areas where their applied competence may fall short, affecting the quality of the work.
It is expected that the Logbook will guide the student and mill mentor through the stages starting at Assist Only and eventually independent work.
Remember that each work code should not be seen in isolation; most work will cover several codes simultaneously, and no recording will be required once the Independent Work section has been initiated.
