This Assessment and Training Package is a Competence-Based Education and Training (CBET) tool and consists of three major parts:
0.1 PART I: The “Occupational Profile” (OP) of a DIETITIAN. This Occupational Profile which was developed by Dietitans practicing in the world of work, mirrors the duties and tasks Dietitians are expected to perform in the world of work.
0.2 PART II: “Training Modules” in the form of guidelines to train Dietitians both on the job as well as in training centres (or combinations of both venues of learning). The Training Modules herein have been developed basing on the Occupational Profile and hence are directly relevant for employment.
0.3 PART III: “Assessment Instruments” in the form of performance (Practical) and written (theory) test items that can and should be used to assess whether a person complies with the requirements of employment as a Dietitian.
These assessment instruments were developed jointly by job practitioners (DIETITIANS) and teachers based on the occupational profile and training modules
