In all of the tables in this document, both the pre-2009 NQF Level and the NQF Level is shown. In the text (purpose statements, qualification rules, etc), any references to NQF Levels are to the pre-2009 levels unless specifically stated otherwise.  

This qualification does not replace any other qualification and is not replaced by any other qualification. 

PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION 
The purpose of the Qualification is to build the knowledge and skills required by employees in management who have either had schooling below NQF level 3 or who have a Senior Certificate, but who have gaps in Communication in the language of business and/or Mathematical Literacy that could inhibit progress in a career path in management. It is intended to empower learners to acquire knowledge, skills, attitudes and values required to operate confidently as managers in the South African community and to respond to the challenges of the financial services environment and the changing world of work.

The Qualification provides a framework for learners to develop competencies that will enable them to become competent managers. It introduces some theoretical concepts, requires the application of a limited base of knowledge and requires a well-developed range of skills that will enable learners to be informed workers in the financial services industry. It provides a balanced learning experience that allows flexible access to further education, life long learning, further education and to productive employment in the financial services sector. It provides an opportunity for learners to learn and apply academic skills in relation to management and will provide them with skills to adapt to changes in work procedures and processes in the financial services industry.

The National Certificate in Financial Services: Management: Level 3 is intended for personnel already employed and other learners who intend to follow a career in management in the financial services industry. The focus is on comparison, choice, interpretation and application of knowledge.

Qualifying learners are capable of:
  • Carrying out simple research tasks.
  • Managing their finances and risk in their own lives.
  • Interpreting current affairs related to the financial services sector.
  • Recognising the impact of wellness on work performance.
  • Applying knowledge of self and team to enhance team performance and meet an organisation`s standards.
  • Maintaining records.
  • Managing time and the work process.
  • Explaining the structure of an organisation within the context of the financial services.
  • Inducting a new member of a team.
  • Explaining the implications and consequences of non-compliance with FAIS and FICA legislation.
  • Explaining compulsory, statutory insurance and issues of employee wellness.
  • Coaching a team member.
  • Explaining basic business ethics in a work environment.

    Rationale for the qualification

    The Financial Services sector is highly regulated and the consequences of non-compliance for the industry are far reaching in terms of both financial and reputation risk. Managers in Financial Services require a sound knowledge of the financial services environment and technical expertise, and need the capacity to understand broad financial and legal aspects. Not all people can acquire the technical knowledge required in the industry. In the Financial Services industry managers are appointed based on technical knowledge and experience and potential managerial ability. It is generally understood in the industry that you can train specialist technical people on management, but you cannot train managers in technical expertise. Learners who are skilled in management cannot necessarily be managers in Financial Services.

    The National Certificate in Financial Services: Management: NQF Level 3 is designed to meet the needs of learners in the sector who require management skills including managers or supervisors of small teams or business units in medium to large organisations and managers in SMEs that are part of the financial services sector. It is intended as a vehicle to fast track learners from previously disadvantaged groups and other learners to acquire the knowledge of the financial services industry and skills of management that are required to build a pool of learners with management expertise and enable the industry to meet Employment Equity targets.

    The term business unit in this qualification implies a team, cost centre, section, department or SME. It is envisaged that learners who complete this qualification will be engaged in work roles in financial services organisations and will be able to play a part, at their level, in implementing policies, ensuring compliance, and executing tasks within given policy and procedures of department or business unit. As such, they act as buffers between their teams and strategic management and are involved in implementing the vision and contributing ultimately to the success of an organisation. They are responsible for the implementation of risk management plans and the application of processes and procedures in small teams.

    Management positions at this level include, but are not limited to team leaders, supervisors, and section heads. This is the first level of management in a financial services organisation where managers are appointed as managers because of their technical expertise and have other employees reporting to them. Managers at this level have a knowledge of basic operations and get the job done. Queries may be escalated to them and they have set responsibilities. They can act independently to a certain level. They are involved in issues of quality control, but are required to refer to a higher level and to act within their level of authority.

    The National Certificate in Financial Services: Management: NQF Level 3 exposes learners to a broad set of core competencies covering a number of aspects of management. It is intended for learners who:
  • Have attained a National Certificate in a Financial Services sector: Level 2 or 3 and wish to continue on a path of life-long learning in the field of management within a financial services environment.
  • Were previously disadvantaged and were therefore denied access to Further Education and Training or management positions in financial services.
  • Wish to extend their range of skills and knowledge of management so that they progress within the financial services industry.
  • Are team leaders or supervisors in the financial services industry and wish to improve their management skills.
  • See themselves as future managers in the financial services sector and need to start their training at the lower end of management.

    The National Certificate in Financial Services: Management: Level 3 allows the individual to work towards a nationally recognised qualification. It is flexible enough to be offered in formal education and as occupational directed workplace based training for learners already employed in the financial services industry. It aims to develop informed and skilled managers. Skills, knowledge, values and attitudes reflected in the qualification are building blocks that will be developed further at NQF level 4. The intention is:
  • To promote the development of knowledge and management skills that are required in the financial services sector.
  • To release the potential of people.
  • To provide opportunities for people to move up the value chain.
  • To form the basis of learnerships in the financial services sector.

    Learners already employed in management in the financial services industry at this level operate within given parameters and clearly defined contexts. They are generally in positions that require knowledge and expertise in a specific work function and are firstly experts in their technical field and secondly managers.
    They do work that requires management competencies that include, but are not limited to,
  • A basic understanding of the financial services industry and specialised knowledge and applied understanding of a specific sub sector of financial services.
  • An understanding of their operating environment as part of a specific organisation and the financial services sector
  • The ability to use their knowledge to select and apply appropriate processes and procedures to solve problems,
  • The ability to take a position on available work related information, discuss the issues and reach a resolution.
  • An ability to work and learn within a highly regulated and managed environment.
  • A capacity to actively contribute to team effectiveness.
  • A knowledge of the financial services regulatory environment and the consequences of non-compliance.

    The National Certificate in Financial Services: Management: NQF Level 3 should assist managers in financial services organisations to contribute to improved productivity, compliance and efficiency within the financial services environment. It should provide the means for current managers to receive recognition of prior learning and to upgrade their skills. Qualifying learners should be competent in competencies relating to:
  • The structure of financial services industry in general, and a specific sub-sector and the policies and procedures of a specific organisation in particular, and the potential impact of current events on the sector.
  • The implications and consequences of non-compliance with FAIS and FICA and other relevant legislation.
  • Ethics.
  • Managing systems, processes and procedures in the financial services industry including planning and co-ordinating own and group and team members` outputs.
  • Managing and leading teams and individuals
  • Managing self and risk in own life. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING

    EXIT LEVEL OUTCOMES 
    The National Certificate in Financial Services: Management: Level 3 is intended for personnel already employed and other learners who intend to follow a career in management within the financial services sector. The focus is on comparison, choice, interpretation and application of knowledge. Learners should have the capacity to operate within clearly defined contexts. They should be able to work and learn within a managed financial services environment and be able to actively contribute to team effectiveness. As the role of manager cannot be separated from the work role, financial services learners are required to apply management skills in a financial services context. At exit level integrated assessment of the core unit standards is required.

    Learners should have the capacity to operate within clearly defined contexts. They should be able to work and learn within a managed environment and be able to actively contribute to team effectiveness.

    The learner can demonstrate ability to:
  • Identify and solve problems related to his/her own life and the management of a team or group in which responses show that responsible decisions using critical and creative thinking have been made. The learner is required to apply knowledge of management to different situations in a financial services environment.
  • Work effectively with others as a member of a team, group or organisation as management implies the management of a group or team. Several assessment criteria require learners to demonstrate competence as a group/team leader or manager. As the Qualification focuses on Management, it implies that the learner would not work alone.
  • Organise and manage oneself and one`s activities responsibly and effectively in that it is expected that the learner will be responsible for his/her own learning and for organising his/her own work and allocated tasks and those of a group or team responsibly in the in a financial services environment. The learner is required to complete research assignments on time and to apply knowledge of different aspects of management to manage a team or group in a financial services environment.
  • Collect, organise and critically evaluate information. These competencies are built into the assessment criteria in many of the Unit Standards and the learner is required to do research projects and compare information from the main and financial sections of a daily or weekly newspaper.
  • Communicate effectively using visual, mathematics and language skills in the modes of oral and/or written presentations. These competencies are an integral part of all the Unit Standards and are built into the assessment criteria.
  • Use science and technology effectively and critically showing responsibility towards the environment and the health of others in cases where computer end user standards are included as electives. The financial services industry is highly computerised and it can be assumed that managers in the industry will be required to use technology as part of their work processes.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the world as a set of related systems by recognising that problem-solving contexts do not exist in isolation in that references are made wherever applicable to the learners` part in the big picture and how his/her actions have implications up and down the line in an organisation and the implications and consequences of non compliance in the highly regulated in a financial services environment.

    In addition this Qualification contributes to the full personal development of each learner and the social and economic development of the society at large, by making it the underlying intention of any programme of learning to make the individual aware of the importance of:

    Reflecting on and exploring a variety of strategies to learn more effectively in order to become an informed worker in the financial services industry.
  • Participating as a responsible citizen in the life of local, national and global communities by accepting own responsibility for wellness and HIV/AIDS and being a responsible worker.

    Assessment Criteria

    Knowledge of basic business ethics are applied to deal with situations in the team or business unit.

    Intergrated assessment:

    Assessment practices must be fair, transparent, valid and reliable and should ensure that no learner is disadvantaged. Learners who wish to be assessed against this standard should direct enquiries to Inseta.

    The focus of assessment must be on the assessment of the learning outcomes rather than learning outputs. The Specific Outcomes guide the learning and training process towards the outcomes on a continuous basis. The purpose is to determine whether the outcomes have been attained. Situations should present a wide range of options. Applications should require significant choices from a wide range of procedures and in a number of contexts.

    Learning, teaching and assessment are inextricably linked. Where appropriate assessment of knowledge, skills, attitudes and values indicated in the various Unit Standards should be integrated. Assessment in communication, mathematical literacy and financial literacy should use authentic workplace contexts wherever practical.

    Assessment has a formative monitoring function. Formative assessment should be used to assess gaps in the learners` skill and knowledge and to indicate where there is a need for expanded opportunities. The goal is to promote learning and to assess the efficacy of the teaching and learning process. Feedback from assessment informs teaching and learning and allows for the critique of outcomes, methodology and materials. Formative assessment is diagnostic and as such it should guide the learner and the trainer. It is continuous and is used to plan appropriate learning experiences to meet the learner`s needs. It provides information about problems experienced at different stages in the learning process. As it is criterion referenced, if the learner has met the assessment criteria, s/he has achieved the outcomes.

    Assessment should also have a summative component. Summative assessment may be used on completion of a Unit Standards, but should not be the only form of assessment.

    A variety of methods must be used in assessment and tools and activities must be appropriate to the context in which the learner is working. Assessment should take place in an authentic context as far as is possible. Where it is not possible to assess competence in the workplace, simulations, case studies and other similar techniques should be used to provide a context appropriate to the assessment.

    Integration implies that theoretical and practical components should where possible be assessed together.

    Integrative techniques should be used to assess applied competence. Learners should be required to demonstrate that they can perform the outcomes with understanding and insight.

    Assessment should ensure that all Specific Outcomes, embedded knowledge and Critical Cross Field Outcomes are evaluated. Assessment of the Critical Cross-Field Outcomes should be integrated with the assessment of the Specific Outcomes. The Critical Cross-Field Outcomes are implicit in some Unit Standards and programmes should be designed to extend and further reflect the integration.

    Before The National Certificate in Financial Services: Management: Level 3 is awarded learners are required to demonstrate competence in the required Unit Standards and complete a summative assessment based on the exit outcomes of the Qualification. 

  • INTERNATIONAL COMPARABILITY
