About this SITXMGT004 monitor work operations Student Logbook

This Student Logbook is where you will record evidence of the knowledge and skills you have developed during your training for this unit. It also serves as a handy reference guide on what you need to do during your assessment and how you should go about doing it.

Fill in the table below:

Completing your reflective monitor work reports

You are expected to complete a reflective report for each of the eight scenarios described in the Student Assessment Tasks for this unit. A template has been provided for each report. Each report follows a similar format – it begins with a series of questions and then asks you to reflect on your experiences. Try to think about the highlights of each scenario when you are writing your reflection. You might also find the following questions useful:

What skills and techniques did I use?

What policies and procedures did I follow?

How did I ensure efficiency, safety and quality?

How did I ensure that my team met quality standards?

What did I learn during the service and how might I apply it in future? What might I do differently next time?

At the end of each template, you will find a supervisor endorsement.

Supervisor declaration

Your workplace supervisor’s feedback forms an important part of the assessment process and it is essential you have your supervisor complete their section of each of your reflective reports and fill in the supervisor declaration after the summary section. Keep in mind that, if you are completing your assessment in your RTO’s training kitchen, your trainer will be your workplace supervisor and should endorse your journal. Without their endorsement, your Logbook will be incomplete and it is likely to be returned to you for resubmission.

Logbook summary

There are a number of requirements you must fulfil within your assessment process, so a Logbook Summary has been provided. Make sure you keep this section up to date – it will help you keep track of any outstanding requirements.

Tips for completing this logbook

Read through your logbook before you get started and make sure you understand what you need to do. If you are unsure, speak to your assessor and/or workplace supervisor.

Stay up to date! Complete a logbook entry at the end of each service period and ask your supervisor to do the same. Providing organised, complete evidence forms part of your assessment.

Stay in touch with your assessor. Ask questions, raise issues, check in, communicate.

Most importantly, ask for help if you are having trouble!

Please note, that your workplace supervisor may also be your trainer or assessor in the training environment.

This needs to be completed in addition to the supervisor endorsement section of your reflective reports. One copy has been provided in this logbook but you can make additional copies as needed.
