Quarterly update – March 2021

It is hard to believe we are already at the end of March! The Instant
team has been busy finalising new resources for our catalogue.

Sports coaching and instruction

In response to interest in the sports coaching area, we have a new
addition to our catalogue:

25815 - Demonstrate and apply knowledge of ethics and the
protection of athletes, coach, and others, in sport coaching. Level 3,
Credits 2.

This comprehensive resource provides ‘developing coaches’ with
a basic understanding of their role as a coach, and their ethical
responsibilities within any sporting context.

The guide provides an analysis of Sport New Zealand’s Coaches’ Code
of Ethics, and applies these principles to a range of sporting scenarios.
This helps to illustrate a variety of ethical dilemmas that a coach may
be faced with and provides the student with helpful tools to make
ethical decisions.

Instant has created a Learner’s Guide and Teacher’s Guide for this
unit, in addition to the Assessment and Assessment Sample answers.

22771 - Plan beginner-level coaching sessions for sport participants.
Level 3, Credits 6.

Instant has also updated its resources for this coaching unit
(assessment only).

Tikanga resources

Instant is very excited to announce our new Tikanga resources!

Unit Standard 27106 - Describe the terms associated with
whakapapa and use them within a family structure,
Level 1, Credits 2.

The learner guide for this unit will take the student through the basic
principles of tikanga, and the language used to describe whakapapa,
and family structures. The student is provided with practical guidance
on how each of the terms can be used in everyday life. There is also
an appendix to assist with pronunciation basics.

Unit standard 27108 - Describe the protocols and roles associated
with pōwhiri in accordance with tikanga and/or kawa,
Level 1, Credits 2.

This new resource provides the student with an introduction to
the foundations of Māori culture. Students are taken through the
protocols of pōwhiri, and the related tikanga practices, in an easy to
follow, step by step way.

For both of these units, Instant provides Learner’s Guide and
Teacher’s Guide, as well as the Assessment and Assessment Sample
Answers. These are also available as editable PDFs

Computing

We have almost completed updating all our Computing resources for
Office 365. This will incorporate the major changes made in 2019 to
the user interface for Office products such as Word, Excel, Publisher,
and Access. If you are using Office 365, we strongly recommend you
upgrade to these new resources.

In response to several requests from customers, we will also be
publishing new resources for the desktop publishing standards
(29774 and 29792) using Adobe InDesign as the DTP tool.
