PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION 
Qualifying learners will be competent to execute elementary construction activities in terms of the fields of learning successfully completed.

For those with extensive experience in the workplace, this qualification will serve as entry to the Recognition of Prior Learning processes without prior formal education and training having been undertaken.

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

For education and training providers, this qualification provides guidance for development of appropriate learning programmes and assessment criteria.

For employers, this qualification enables skills gaps to be identified and addressed, ensuring achievement of increased productivity levels and business objectives.

This qualification has been developed to provide flexibility / mobility / portability across the construction industry, thereby allowing for future career advancement across various fields of learning in construction.

Rationale for the qualification

The rationale is to provide an introduction into construction practice with options in various fields of learning at NQF Level 1. This qualification will be awarded on successful completion of the programme. At this level, all work is executed under very close supervision.

Learners will be employed in the construction industry where the combination of practical work and theoretical class room training will empower new entrants to the construction industry and the combination of learning outcomes in this qualification will provide learners with applied competence in the execution of their work.

This qualification serves as a basis for learning towards various qualifications in related construction fields at NQF Level 2.

As a contribution to socio-economic transformation, learners will be able to undergo RPL-assessment, thereby receiving recognition for previous learning and experience. The employability and career prospects of learners holding this qualification will be enhanced.

Benefits to the economy include employment of previously unemployable persons who can offer skills to a number of different employer bodies, for example construction companies and government departments where, during the construction and maintenance of physical infrastructure, such skills will be in demand. 

LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
Prior to embarking on learning towards this qualification, learners should have acquired language competencies and mathematical literacy competencies at ABET Level 3.

Recognition of Prior Learning

The qualification may be obtained through the process of Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). Learners who have met the requirements of any unit standard in this qualification may apply to the relevant Education and Training Quality Assurance Body (ETQA) for recognition of prior learning, and will be assessed against the assessment criteria and specific outcomes for the relevant unit standard/s. ETQA bodies are responsible for facilitating the implementation of the RPL, and must register trained assessors against specific unit standards. Learners are prepared for assessment and assessed against the unit standard by such registered assessors. Moderation and appeals processes must be implemented. Learners declared competent against a specific unit standard, receive ETQA certificates indicating their achievements and this information is also recorded on the National Learner Registration Database (NLRD).

    Integrated Assessment

    Formative assessments conducted during the learning process consist of written tests, demonstrations and a number of self-assessments. The purpose of formative assessment is to diagnose learner strengths and weaknesses and to determine readiness for summative assessment.

    Summative assessment consists of written tests coupled with assignments, case studies and practical demonstrations and would be conducted only when the learner indicates that he/she is ready to undergo summative assessment.

    Before qualifying, learners will be expected to demonstrate competence in practical situations which integrates the assessment of all specific outcomes, for all unit standards.

    Integrated assessment provides learners with opportunities to display their ability to integrate practical performance, actions, concepts and theories across unit standards in order to achieve competence related to the purpose of this qualification.

    In particular, assessors should monitor and ensure that learners are able to demonstrate an ability to consider a range of options and make decisions about:
  • quality of observed practical performance as well as the theory and knowledge which underpin practical skills,
  • different methods to be used by learners to display thinking and decisionmaking in the demonstration of practical performance, and
  • reflective competencies 

  • INTERNATIONAL COMPARABILITY 
    The learnership model for the qualification National Certificate in Construction NQF Level 1, is unique to South Africa, but is, however, comparable to the "strand" concept related to qualifications registered on the New Zealand Qualifications Framework.

    In New Zealand, no fundamental unit standards are incorporated in the comparable qualification. Unit standards are clustered into appropriate groups with totals as low as 60 credits. This grouping is called a "strand", indicating a limited area of specialisation.

    The South African learnership model is more comprehensive because fundamental unit standards in Mathematical and Language Literacy are included, providing learners with an opportunity to achieve these competencies as part of the learning process incorporated in the qualification.

    Grouping of elective unit standards comprising a particular learnership is very similar to the New Zealand "strand" concept, but is more comprehensive, leading to a broader learning field.

    In Botswana, the Department of Labour has established a Construction Industry Trust Fund for the training of artisan-related skills required in the construction industry. The centre is located at Gaborone and uses competency-based training materials and methodologies for the training of artisans in the construction industries. The qualification levels typify the SAQA NQF Level 3 

    ARTICULATION OPTIONS 
    This qualification has been developed to provide mobility across various fields of learning in the construction industry.

    Horizontal portability is also possible because the fundamental learning and the core unit are the same for all the various learnerships in this field.
    Annexure C (elective unit standards - rules of combination) provides details of different combinations of electives together with fundamental and core learning, formatted according to fields of learning which will deliver the same generic qualification at NQF Level 1, following successful completion.

    Vertical articulation permits learners to progress from level 1 to level 7 in the various learnership fields. However, from level 4 onwards, competencies are clustered to make provision for supervising and managing a range of skills.

    The following qualifications provide a learning pathway for the construction workers:

    NQF level 1: National Certificate in Construction (generic + various streams)
    NQF level 2: National Certificate in Construction (generic + various streams)
    NQF level 3: National Certificate in Construction (various streams)
    NQF level 4: National Certificate in the Supervision of Construction activities. (generic)
    NQF level 5: National Diploma in the Management of Construction activities (generic)
    NQF level 6: National Degree in Construction Management.
    NQF level 7: National Professional Degree in Construction Management

    For the purposes of RPL, holders of qualifications other than those listed above are also eligible for assessment against this qualification. 

    MODERATION OPTIONS 
    Assessment of learner achievements takes place at the premises of training / learning providers accredited by the relevant ETQA or the relevant body (RSA, 1998b) to provide programmes that deliver the outcomes specified for the National Certificates in Construction, NQF Level 1. The relevant ETQA, or other ETQAs who have signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the relevant ETQA, are responsible for moderation of achievements of learners who meet the requirements of this qualification.

    Anyone assessing a learner or moderating an assessment of a learner's performance against this qualification must be registered as an assessor and moderator (if appropriate) with the relevant ETQA. Assessors and moderators must be competent in unit standards being assessed or moderated.

    This information shows the current accreditations (i.e. those not past their accreditation end dates), and is the most complete record available to SAQA as of today. Some Primary or Delegated Quality Assurance Functionaries have a lag in their recording systems for provider accreditation, in turn leading to a lag in notifying SAQA of all the providers that they have accredited to offer qualifications and unit standards, as well as any extensions to accreditation end dates. The relevant Primary or Delegated Quality Assurance Functionary should be notified if a record appears to be missing from here.
