PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION 
Learners found competent against this qualification will be able to erect structural steel in a safe, cost effective manner and in compliance with project specifications.

For those who have been in the workplace for a long time, this Qualification can be used in the recognition of prior learning process to assess and recognise workplace skills acquired without the benefit of formal education and training.

For the new entrant, this Qualification describes the learning outcomes required to participate effectively in a structured workplace.

For education and training providers, this Qualification provides guidance for the development of appropriate learning programmes and assessment documentation.

For employers, this Qualification enables skills gaps to be identified and addressed ensuring that productivity levels are increased and business objectives achieved.

This Qualification has been developed to assist with the advancement of the learner across the Civil Engineering and Construction industry and is aimed at Construction Structural Steel Erecting practitioners in the industry, ensuring the upliftment of standards in general.

The combination of learning outcomes will provide the qualifying learner with vocational knowledge and skills appropriate to the context of Structural Steel Erecting in the Civil Engineering and Construction environment. It will also equip learners with a foundation for further intellectual development, opportunities for gainful employment and reward for contributions to society.

This Qualification will provide the industry with qualified Construction Structural Steel Erecting practitioners, thereby facilitating social and economic transformation, empowerment and upliftment in the Industry and country in general.

The relationship between this Qualification and the principles of the NQF is outlined in the following table:

NQF Principle-national certificate in construction concreting - nqf level 3
Recognition of Prior learning-Allows for Recognition of Prior Learning, especially as a means of career advancement
Credibility-Learning Outcomes are a result of consensus by the Industry
Relevance-Consulting workshops indicated a demand for a unit standard based Qualification in Construction Structural Steel Erecting at NQF Level 3
Access-Removes traditional barriers to Higher Education
Articulation/Progression-Forms part of a Learning Pathway for Construction Structural Steel Erecting practitioners, spanning NQF Levels 1 - 7

Rationale for the Qualification:

This Qualification has been developed for the Construction Structural Steel Erecting occupational area within the Civil Engineering and Construction Industry.

The rationale for the introduction of a unit standards based Qualification in Construction Structural Steel Erecting is to provide a qualification for persons who perform structural steel erecting activities on Civil Engineering and Construction sites, whether in micro, small, medium or large operations.

In the past many practitioners in the Civil Engineering and Construction area were denied career advancement and possible professional registration. The introduction of a unit standards based National Certificate in Construction: Structural Steel Erecting, will allow learners, both unemployed and employed, to reach their full potential of advancement and will allow for Recognition of Prior Learning.

This qualification will facilitate the development of a professional community of Construction Structural Steel Erecting practitioners.
