PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION 
Purpose:

The purpose of this Qualification is to build the necessary knowledge, understanding, abilities, skills and attitudes required for learning towards becoming a competent person in art direction, graphic design and multimedia. It also serves as the entry qualification into the creative field of marketing. In the context of the advertising, marketing and communication industries, this qualification will enable creative, feasible, innovative and exciting individual and teamwork possibilities. This qualification will be registered at: NQF Level 6 and is designed to ensure portability across all other Marketing Qualifications registered with SAQA.

Whilst it is clearly evident that the learner should be competent in using modern information technology, most of the Unit Standards contained in this Qualification avoid reference to specific methods of processing data. The knowledge, skills, values and attitudes required by the learner are defined in terms of outcomes rather than processes or procedures.

This Qualification supports the objectives of the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) in that it provides learners with clear learning pathways, which provide access to, and mobility and progression within the marketing industry as a whole. Such improvements increase the learners' employment opportunities. The increased knowledge and skill base in this Qualification has a wider implication, namely the enhancement of the functional and intellectual capability of the nation at large.

Rationale:

This Qualification has been developed as a coherent set of generic competences in the field of visual communications that it applies to a wide range of careers in the areas of Art Direction, Graphic Design and Multimedia, in a variety of contexts. Transferable core competences for broadly defined areas of visual communications have been identified and included in the visual communications role in different contexts.

The Bachelor of Visual Communications at NQF Level 6 is designed to meet the needs of those learners who enter the field of Art Direction, Graphic Design and Multimedia. The Bachelor of Visual Communications NQF Level 6 will provide a broad knowledge and skills needed in the industry for learners who:
  • Have attained an FETC and who wish to proceed on a path of life-long learning, specialising in visual communications.
  • Have performed some function in visual communications in their organisation without a formal Qualification in this area.
  • Were previously disadvantaged and who were unable to engage in learning in the Higher Education band.
  • Wish to extend their range of skills and knowledge of the Marketing Communications profession so that they can become knowledgeable workers in the sector.
  • Have recently taken up position as a support staff member in a visual communications section of an organisation.
  • Could be contracted in a Learnership in the marketing and advertising sectors.

    The Bachelor of Visual Communications: Level 6 is a Qualification that rewards the learner for the knowledge, skills, attitudes, values and creativity that have been mastered through awarding them with a Nationally recognised Qualification that formally recognises those competencies. It aims to develop individuals who are informed and skilled in the Visual Communications areas of Art Direction, Graphic Design or Multimedia.

    Many different roles are linked to and affected by this qualification. They include but are not limited to:
  • Advertising.
  • Packaging.
  • Television Advertising Production.
  • Publications.
  • Film Making.
  • Corporate Identity.
  • Event Marketing.
  • Exhibitions.
  • Sponsorships.
  • Sales Promotions.

    The qualification is structured in a way that exposes individuals to a set of core competencies to give a broad understanding of marketing electives, which will allow for a reflexive competence in visual communications. It will also allow for maximum flexibility and mobility for the competence to the learner to adjust to the changing needs within this dynamic industry. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    It is assumed that learners wishing to enter a programme leading to this qualification will have demonstrated competence in Visual Communications equivalent to NQF Level 5 or in any related field.

    Recognition of prior learning:

    The structure of this Unit Standard - based Qualification makes the Recognition of Prior Learning possible, if the learner is able to demonstrate competence in the knowledge, skills, values and attitudes implicit in this qualification. This qualification may be achieved in part or whole through the recognition of prior learning.

    This Recognition of Prior Learning may allow:
  • For accelerated access to further learning.
  • Gaining of credits towards a unit standard.

    All recognition of Prior Learning is subject to quality assurance by the relevant accredited Education Training Quality Assurance (ETQA) Body and is conducted by a registered workplace assessor.

    Integrated Assessment:

    Integrated assessment at the level of qualification provides an opportunity for learners to show that they are able to integrate concepts, ideas and actions across unit standards to achieve competence that is grounded and coherent in relation to the purpose of the qualification. Integrated assessment should show how already demonstrated competence in individual areas can be linked and applied for the achievement of a holistic outcome.

    Integrated assessment must judge the quality of the observable performance, and also the quality of thinking that lies behind it. Assessment tools must encourage learners to explain the thinking and decision-making that underpin their demonstrated performance.

    The assessment criteria in the unit standards are performance-based (applied competence as opposed to required knowledge only). This means that workplace experience may be recognised when awarding credits towards this qualification. A broad range of task-orientated and theoretical assessment tools may be used, with the distinction between practical knowledge and disciplinary knowledge maintained so that each takes its rightful place. Unit standards in the qualification must be used to assess specific and critical cross-fields outcomes. During integrated assessment the assessor should make use of formative and summative assessment methods and should assess combinations of practical, applied, foundational and reflexive competencies.

  • MODERATION OPTIONS 
    Moderation of assessment and accreditation of providers shall be at the discretion of relevant ETQA as long as it complies with the SAQA requirements. The ETQA is responsible of moderation of learner achievements of learners who meet the requirements of this qualification. Particular moderation and accreditation requirements are:
  • Any institution offering learning that will enable the achievement of this qualification must be accredited as a provider with the relevant ETQA. Providers offering learning towards achievement of any of the unit standards that make up this qualification must also be accredited through the relevant ETQA accredited by SAQA.
  • The ETQA will oversee assessment and moderation of assessment according to their policies and guidelines for assessment and moderation, or in terms of agreements reached around assessment and moderation between the relevant ETQA and other ETQA's and in terms of the moderation guideline details here.
  • Moderation must include both internal and external moderation of assessments for the qualification, unless the relevant ETQA policies specify otherwise. Moderation should also encompass achievement of the competence described in Unit Standards as well as the integrated competence described in the qualification.
  • Internal moderation of assessment must take place at the point of assessment with external moderation provided by a relevant ETQA according to the moderation guidelines and the agreed ETQA procedures.
  • Anyone wishing to be assessed against this qualification may apply to be assessed by any assessment agency, assessor or provider institution that is accredited by the relevant ETQA. 

  • CRITERIA FOR THE REGISTRATION OF ASSESSORS 
    Assessment of learner achievements takes place at providers accredited by the relevant ETQA (RSA, 1998b) for the provision of programmes that result in the outcomes specified for this qualification. Anyone assessing a learner or moderating the assessment of a learner against this qualification must be registered as an assessor with the ETQA. Assessors registered with the relevant ETQA must carry out the assessment of learners for the qualification and any of the Unit Standards that make up this qualification.

    Assessors should keep the following general principles in mind when designing and conducting assessments:
  • Focus the initial assessment activities on gathering evidence in terms of the main outcomes expressed in the titles of the Unit Standards to ensure assessment is integrated rather than fragmented. Remember that the learner needs to be declared competent in terms of the qualification purpose and exit levels outcomes.
  • Where assessment across Unit Standard titles or at Unit Standard title level is unmanageable, then focus assessment around each specific outcome, or groups of specific outcomes. Take special note of the need for integrated assessment.
  • Make sure evidence is gathered across the entire range, wherever it applies.

    In particular, assessors should assess that the learner demonstrates an ability to consider a range of options by:
  • Measuring the quality of the observed practical performance as well as the theory and underpinning knowledge.
  • Using methods that are varied to allow the learner to display thinking and decision making in the demonstration of practical performance.
  • Maintaining a balance between practical performance and theoretical assessment methods to ensure each is measured in accordance with the level of the qualification.
  • Taking into account that the relationship between practical and theoretical components is not fixed, but varies according to the type and level of qualification.

    All assessments should be conducted in line with the following well-documented principles:
  • Appropriate: The method of assessment is suited to the performance being assessed.
  • Fair: The method of assessment does not present any barriers to achievements, which are not related to the evidence.
  • Manage: The methods used make for easily arranged cost-effective assessments that do not unduly interfere with learning.
  • Integrate into work or learning: Evidence collection is integrated into the work or learning process where this is appropriate and feasible.
  • Valid: The assessment focuses on the requirements laid down in the standards; i.e. the assessment is fit for purpose.
  • Direct: The activities in the assessment mirror the conditions of actual performance as close as possible.
  • Authentic: The assessor is satisfied that the work being assessed is attributable to the learner being assessed.
  • Sufficient: The evidence collected establishes that all criteria have been met and that performance to the required Standard can be repeated consistently.
  • Systematic: Planning and recording is sufficiently rigorous to ensure that assessment is fair.
  • Open: Learners can contribute to the planning and accumulation of evidence. Learners for assessment understand the assessment process and the criteria that apply.
  • Consistent: The same assessor would make the same judgement again in similar circumstances. The judgement made is similar than the judgement that would be made by other assessors.
