PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION 
Purpose:

This qualification will equip the learner with the skills, knowledge and values to participate effectively in workplace activities within the Clothing, Textile, Footwear and Leather (CTFL) manufacturing industries. Learners achieving this qualification will be able to contribute to CTFL manufacturing processes by:
  • Monitoring the manufacturing/production process and the quality of production.
  • Understanding their role in the business, i.e. in production and related activities.
  • Understanding how they are affected by legislation, regulations, agreements and policies related to their particular work environment.
  • Perform simple to complex manufacturing / production operations as stipulated.

    Qualifying learners will also be able to relate what they see and experience to scientific and technological principles and concepts. They will also understand how they should operate within the systems which govern their workplace. What learners achieve through this qualification will also serve as a basis for further learning where they will engage more directly in the production process.

    The skills, knowledge and values demonstrated within this qualification will ensure that workers and new entrants will acquire relevant skills and knowledge required by a fast-changing sector essential for economic growth within the CTFL manufacturing environment by allowing learners who are active in the industry to gain recognition for the skills and knowledge they have acquired without having to go through a formal apprenticeship process. Small CTFL manufacturing enterprises would also be ideal vehicles for Black Economic Empowerment.

    Rationale:

    The National Certificate in CTFL Manufacturing Processes: NQF Level 2 is designed to meet the needs of learners who are involved in manufacturing processes in the clothing, footwear and leather industry in South Africa. This qualification replaces a number of legacy qualifications for the various sectors, thus resulting in a re-conceptualised generic manufacturing qualification incorporating new skills and knowledge for the various manufacturing processes.

    This qualification provides the learner with accessibility and a developmental pathway to be employed for the full range related to manufacturing processes and provides the flexibility in that learners accessing this qualification may move into the already registered level 3,4 and 5 qualifications in CTFL Mechanician Processes.

    Further career development after NQF Level 5 would be based on choices relating to the learner's aspirations:
  • Entrepreneurial activities (starting own business).
  • General or technical management.
  • Quality management.
  • Conceptual design of manufactured clothing, textile, footwear and leather products.
  • Advanced technology.

    CTFL manufacturing processes have to respond to a wide variety of exacting customer and consumer requirements. In addition, the industries have to respond to safety and environmental issues and the ongoing development of new products as a result of changing customer needs.

    This qualification is structured in such a way that it gives learners exposure to a broad set of core competencies. This qualification will allow for competence in the learners' current work environment or chosen future work environment.

    This qualification will help prepare learners for employment and further education or training. The qualification will introduce the skills, knowledge and understanding needed by those considering a career in the CTFL industry.

    This qualification series recognises skills, knowledge and values relevant to a workplace.

    This qualification will allow a learner to obtain a nationally recognised qualification in CTFL manufacturing processes by engaging actively in CTFL manufacturing processes. It will assist with attracting and retaining quality learners who attend courses and then apply the knowledge gained to activities in the workplace (portfolio to reflect formative assessment), learners who participate in skills programmes and have the appropriate work experience or learners who are part of a learnership programme which integrates structured learning and work experience. This qualification will provide for the recognition of prior learning by allowing learners to obtain credits for knowledge and skills that they already possess and so obtain the qualification in whole or in part through such recognition.

    The qualification supports the objectives of the National Qualifications Framework in the following ways:
  • It provides for progression from the level 2 qualification to the level 3 qualification. It gives the opportunity for learners to obtain official recognition for knowledge and skills that they possess in CTFL manufacturing processes and the awarding of an officially recognised qualification.
  • The provision that the qualification may be obtained through recognition of prior learning facilitates access to an education, training and career path in clothing manufacturing processes, and thus accelerates the redress of past unfair discrimination in education, training and employment opportunities.
  • The inclusion of the specified unit standards in the fundamental and core categories contributes to the full personal development of each learner and the social and economic development of the nation at large.

    This qualification describes the skills and knowledge required in a generic manner so that the changing needs of particular work sites can be met without requiring changes to the qualification or the unit standards. This qualification can be obtained in the following contexts:
  • Clothing:

    > 243707: "Perform manual processes in the cutting room".
    > 243696: "Perform outwork processes".
    > 243685: "Design and make patterns for sewn products".
    > 243684: "Join component parts".
    > 243698: "Press finished garments and ensure the dispatch thereof".
  • Textiles:

    > 243709: "Monitor and maintain a fibre manufacturing process".
    > 243711: "Operate and control an inspection process".
    > 243710: "Operate and control a textile manufacturing process".
    > 243708: "Apply textile testing techniques".
    > 243697: "Prepare dyeing and print colouration materials".
  • Footwear:

    > 243690: "Produce footwear patterns".
    > 243695: "Cut components parts".
    > 243692: "Assemble and join component parts".
    > 243687: "Produce bottomstock for footwear".
    > 243682: "Perform making operations".
    > 243689: "Finish and dress footwear".
  • Leather:

    > 243699: "Apply cutting practices to leather".
    > 243693: "Apply finishing practices in leather".
    > 243691: "Apply retanning practices in leather".
    > 243683: "Apply tanning practices in leather".
    > 243694: "Apply curing practices to leather".

    Typical learners would be new entrants to the industry. Once qualified, they would typically tend to the clothing, textile, footwear and leather manufacturing processes, and to perform tasks under the direction of a more skilled person. In some instances this role represents a full-time position in the organisation; in other instances this is simply a stage in occupational development.

    The outcomes of this qualification combine skills and knowledge in the technical, inter-personal and business spheres, enabling the learner to perform the operational aspects of the work, function within a team context and contribute to value-adding processes in the business.

    The value of the occupation will benefit society and the economy. The CTFL manufacturing industries are essential to the supply of a wide range of processed and manufactured products to the consumer. These industries are also vital to the country's export markets.

    This qualification will contribute to the full development of the learner by providing recognition for skills and knowledge achieved, thereby forming the basis of further advancement in the occupation and further mobility and portability across the various sectors of the clothing, textile, footwear and leather manufacturing industries. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    This qualification assumes learners have a General Education and Training Certificate at NQF level 1, or alternatively, an ABET level 4 qualification. If the learner does not have one of the above qualifications, it is assumed that learners are already competent at Communication and Mathematical Literacy at ABET level 3.

    Recognition of Prior Learning:

    This qualification may be obtained through a 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. The guidelines for integrated assessment should be used to develop the RPL assessment process. As with integrated assessment, 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.

    Access to the qualification:

    There is open access to the qualification. A workplace is, however, a pre-requisite to obtaining the relevant work experience and evidence required for the assessment of the Exit Level Outcomes.

    Integrated assessment:

    Because assessment practices must be open, transparent, fair, valid, and reliable and ensure that no learner is disadvantaged in any way whatsoever, an integrated assessment approach is incorporated into the Qualification.

    Learning, teaching and assessment are inextricably lined. Whenever possible, the assessment of knowledge, skills, attitudes and values shown in the unit standards should be integrated.

    Assessment of the communication, language, literacy and numeracy should be conducted in conjunction with other aspects and should use authentic clothing, textile, footwear or leather manufacturing contexts wherever possible.

    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. Where it is not possible to assess the learner in the workplace or on-the-job, simulations, case studies, role-plays and other similar techniques should be used to provide a context appropriate to the assessment.

    The term 'Integrated Assessment' implies that theoretical and practical components should be assessed together. During integrated assessments the assessor should make use of formative and summative assessment methods and assess combinations of practical, applied, foundational and reflective competencies.

    Assessors and moderators should make use of a range of formative and summative assessment methods. Assessors should assess and give credit for the evidence of learning that has already been acquired through formal, informal and non-formal learning and work experience.

    Assessment should ensure that all specific outcomes, embedded knowledge and critical cross-field outcomes are evaluated. The assessment of the critical cross-field outcomes should be integrated with the assessment of specific outcomes and embedded knowledge. 

  • INTERNATIONAL COMPARABILITY 
    A survey questionnaire benchmarking this qualification against similar qualifications in other countries was faxed and e-mailed to 24 overseas countries spanning five continents. 14 African countries including SADC countries were contacted to participate in this survey. Unfortunately many countries failed to respond to the survey questionnaire. This survey was also complimented by an international Internet search to ascertain the existence of comparable qualifications within the clothing, textile, footwear and leather sector. Countries with outcomes-based systems still remain the best source of information when doing this research. There is sufficient information on clothing, textile, footwear and leather qualifications to do this kind of research. On this basis, South Africa compared similarly to qualifications offered in New Zealand, United Kingdom and Australia.

    India:

    India does not have the equivalence of the National Certificate in CTFL Manufacturing Processes qualification for which comparability could be done but they are advanced in the sector as far as training and development is concerned Dr. U. Vinod Kurup [M.Tech, MIE, PhD] from India offered the following input with regard to this qualification:
  • Formal education in Textiles is done at diploma, degree, postgraduate degree and PhD level. These courses are offered by a few hundred institutions both by government and private institutions in India.
  • Textile in-plant training are offered by employers to workers in companies.
  • Textile Training Certificate courses are offered by both government and the private sector. National Trade Certificate Training must be approved by the Government of India.
  • Textile and leather related training is approved and offered in the following areas:
    > Upholstery - (1 year).
    > Embroidery and Needlework.
    > Weaving of Silk and Woollen Fabrics.
    > Weaving of Woollen Fabrics.
    > Manufacture of Footwear.
    > Leather and Goods Maker.
    > Dress making.
    > Cutting and sewing.
    > Bleaching dyeing and calico prtg.
    > Fashion Technology.
  • Training certificate courses are also offered by the Apparel Training and design Centre of Apparel Export Promotion Council through centres in several locations.
  • Training programs are also conducted by Weavers Services centres (about 28 in number) and the Ministry of Textiles, Government of India.

    Italy:
  • In order to ensure international comparability with Italian clothing, textile, footwear and leather qualifications, the Italian Embassy requested the CTFL Seta to contact the following organisations. A survey questionnaire based on international comparability was sent to the following organizations:
    > Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana [The National Chamber for Italian Fashion].
    > Progetta Moda [Professional Formation Center of Apparel, Fashion and Costume].
    > Istituto Carlo Secoli.
    > Istituto di Moda Burgo.
  • No replies to the survey questionnaire were received from the above organizations.

    Brazil:

    The Brazilian Embassy advised the CTFL Seta to contact SENAI - Servišo Nacional de Aprendizagem Industrial (National Service of Industrial Training). This organization failed to reply to the survey questionnaire.

    Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa - Malawi and Angola:

    The Embassies of Malawi and Angola responded telephonically and indicated that no such qualifications existed in their countries.

    PROVIDERS CURRENTLY ACCREDITED TO OFFER THIS QUALIFICATION: 
    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 Quality Assuring Bodies 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 Quality Assuring Body should be notified if a record appears to be missing from here.
