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 provide learners, education and training providers and employers with the standards and the range of learning required to satisfy the challenges of participating effectively in the tyre manufacturing industry.
For those who have been in the workplace for a long time, this qualification can be used in the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) process to assess and recognise workplace skills acquired without the benefit of formal education or training.
For the new entrant, this qualification describes the learning outcomes (the skills, knowledge and values) required to effectively participate in a structured workplace within the tyre manufacturing industry.
For education and training providers, this qualification provides guidance for the development of appropriate learning programmes. For employers, the qualification allows skills gaps to be identified and programmes to close those skills gaps to be developed. The qualification also acts as an external benchmark for fulfilling the criteria of national and international quality standards such as ISO 9000:2000.
This qualification recognises the skills, knowledge and values acquired by learners to perform more complex product, tooling and equipment changeovers, to co-ordinate the production of more complex components and to troubleshoot in order to maintain quality and production outputs.
Qualified learners will also understand:
What learners achieve in this qualification will also serve as a basis for further learning where they will engage in maintaining production efficiencies and optimising production processes in tyre and tyre component manufacturing.
The tyre manufacturing process requires the preparation of a range of materials (rubber, additives, synthetic fibres, fabrics and steel wires); the manufacture of components from combinations of these materials; the assembly of the components into a green tyre; the curing or vulcanising of the green tyre into the finished product and the finishing of the cured tyre.
The tyre manufacturing industry combines sophisticated manufacturing processes with skilled hand assembly and fabrication within a competitive and challenging environment. The manufactured products have to respond to a wide variety of exacting customer and consumer quality requirements. In addition, the industry has to respond to competition in export and domestic markets and to ensure the on-going development of new products required by changing customer needs.
This means that people working in the tyre manufacturing industry require a range of skills and knowledge to help them respond to the exacting quality requirements, the pressures of high speed production and ongoing change.
This is the third qualification in a series for tyre and tyre component manufacturing that will enable competent learners to participate effectively in the tyre manufacturing industry.
This qualification can be obtained in the following contexts:
|LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING|
|It is assumed that learners entering a programme towards this qualification have achieved a qualification in tyre and tyre component manufacturing at NQF Level 3 or have the relevant experience.
Recognition of prior learning:
This qualification may be obtained through the process of RPL. The learner should be thoroughly briefed prior to the assessment and support should be provided to assist the learner in the process of developing a portfolio. While this is primarily a work-based qualification, evidence from other areas of endeavour may be introduced if pertinent to any of the exit level outcomes.
|RECOGNISE PREVIOUS LEARNING?|
|The qualification is composed of Fundamental, Core and Elective learning components:
Total: a minimum of 137 credits
If an FETC is required, the following unit standards and credits would also be included:
|EXIT LEVEL OUTCOMES|
|1. Co-ordinate changeover, set up and adjustments to complex tyre and tyre component manufacturing equipment.
2. Make adjustments to materials or equipment to maintain the efficiency of the process and the quality of the manufactured product.
3. Understand and apply rubber technology and tyre construction principles in order to identify, formulate and recommend solutions to common manufacturing process problems and areas for improvement.
4. Ensure efficient and seamless production by co-ordinating activities in workgroup and with other departments.
5. Maintain a safe, productive workplace, developing the efficiency and effectiveness of the workgroup.
(Range: Safety also includes issues of health and issues relating to reducing negative impacts on the environment)
6. Demonstrate an understanding of options for further learning in this or a related field of learning and preparation requirements for such learning.
|ASSOCIATED ASSESSMENT CRITERIA|
The integrated assessment must be based on a summative assessment guide. The guide must spell out how the assessor will assess different aspects of the performance and will include:
The learner may choose in which language s/he wants to be assessed. This should be established as part of a process of preparing the learner for assessment and familiarising the learner with the approach being taken.
While this is primarily a workplace-based qualification, evidence from other areas of endeavour may be introduced if pertinent to any of the exit level outcomes.
The assessment process should cover the explicit tasks required for the qualification as well as the understanding of the concepts and principles that underpin the activities required for tyre manufacturing. The assessment process should also establish how the learning process has advanced the critical outcomes.
Assessors should also evaluate evidence that the learner has been performing consistently over a period of time. The assessment can include a small project or projects that need more time to complete than is practical in a live assessment session.
|This qualification and associated qualifications have been found comparable in terms of outcomes and duration to:
1. Qualifications in the United Kingdom: National and Scottish Vocational Qualifications (N/SVQ)
2. Modern apprenticeship qualifications in the United Kingdom in the field of polymer processing
3. Vocational qualifications in Germany
In addition, the qualification design has been benchmarked against the Manufacturing Skills Standards developed by the Manufacturing Skills Standards Council in the United States.
For the detailed comparison see the Executive Summary of the SGB Process Report.
|The qualification has been designed and structured so that qualifying learners can move from one context to another. Employers or institutions should be able to evaluate the outcomes of this qualification against the needs of their context and structure top-up learning appropriately. Equally, holders of other qualifications may be evaluated against this qualification for the purpose of RPL.|
|Moderators for the qualification should be qualified and accredited with an appropriate ETQA.
To assure the quality of the assessment process, the moderation should cover one of the following:
|CRITERIA FOR THE REGISTRATION OF ASSESSORS|
|The following criteria should be applied by the relevant ETQA:
1. Appropriate qualification in the field of tyre and tyre component manufacturing, with a minimum of 2 years' experience in a tyre-manufacturing environment. The subject matter expertise of the assessor can be established by recognition of prior learning.
2. Appropriate experience and understanding of assessment theory, processes and practices.
3. Good interpersonal skills and ability to balance the conflicting requirements of:
> Maintaining national standards
> The interests of the learner
> The need for transformation and redressing the legacies of the past
> The cultural background and language of the learner
4. Registration as an assessor with the relevant ETQA.
5. Any other criteria required by the relevant ETQA.
