In all of the tables in this document, both the pre-2009 NQF Level and the NQF Level is shown. In the text (purpose statements, qualification rules, etc), any references to NQF Levels are to the pre-2009 levels unless specifically stated otherwise.  

This qualification does not replace any other qualification and is not replaced by any other qualification. 

PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION 
Purpose:

This qualification is designed to enhance the skills of the workforce to efficiently process a range of customer input materials and/or products, to compete in a dynamic and competitive global market.

This qualification recognises the skills, knowledge and values acquired by learners involved in setting up a metals processing operation to continuously produce a range of products using a range of often technologically advanced production equipment and/or machines, to specified customer specification. Learning to oversee the metals processing operation is dealt with in the NQF Level 4 qualification.

The chief skill learnt in this qualification is the ability to bring the production line back into specification by responding to equipment indicators when deviations occur. This capability requires a more advanced understanding of quality requirements and the metals processing/production process.

On completion, the learner will receive recognition for the ability to:
  • Process a range of ferrous and non-ferrous metals products for both domestic and international markets.
  • Inspect, prepare and load material.
  • Inspect, monitor and adjust the operation of a metals processing/production process and report equipment operation.
  • Monitor and adjust product processing.
  • Solve known associated/routine problems.
  • Check the processed product against quality standards.
  • Function in workplaces that use such processes.

    Qualified learners will also understand:
  • Their role in the business, i.e. in production and related activities and how their actions affects the business.
  • How they are affected by legislation, regulations, agreements and policies related to their particular working environment.
  • How they should function and participate within the legislative, safety, health, environmental, quality and risk management systems that govern their workplace.
  • How to apply the various organisational policies and procedures.

    Qualifying in the exit level outcomes will enable learners to effectively perform a range of workplace activities. What learners achieve in this qualification will also serve as a basis for further learning within the supervisory and/or management of such Metals Processing environments. Learners will also further develop their foundational competence in mathematics, science, reading, writing and speaking relevant to the Metals Processing industry.

    Rationale:

    The Metals Processing industry is a complex and specialised industry supplying a vast range of products, currently manufactured by semi-skilled labour, primarily operating simple manually operated production machines or equipment, according to international, customer and relevant ISO standards. The processing of metals typically includes but is not limited to the treatment, conversion and finishing of ferrous and non-ferrous metal products through:
  • Electroplating.
  • Hot dip galvanizing.
  • Powder coating.
  • Enamelling.
  • Anodising.
  • Wire manufacturing.

    This qualification follows on the NQF Level 2 qualification and further develops the skills and knowledge required in Metals Processing. At NQF Level 4 learners engage with the National Certificate: Management (ID # 23656), appropriate to first line supervisors and junior managers.

    This series of qualifications will enable learners to:
  • Develop their existing skills level and progress vertically in a selected career path in Metals Processing/production processes.
  • Receive recognition for learning achieved.
  • Obtain skills and knowledge portable within similar processing industries.
  • Gain access to higher levels of learning and learning provision.
  • Access opportunities to progress in their personal life and career, and add value to the operations in which they function.
  • Contribute to the growth of the South African economy and the development of society. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    This qualification assumes learners have obtained a National Certificate in Metals Processing: NQF Level 2 or equivalent.

    If the learner does not already have such a qualification, learning in preparation for this qualification would also have to include learning in:
  • Literacy and numeracy at NQF Level 2.
  • Basic concepts of science and technology related to material, machinery and equipment in use in production processes at NQF Level 2.
  • Basic concepts regarding organising factors in labour, business and the economy.
  • Purpose of procedures related to the workplace, governing:
    > Relationships.
    > Roles.
    > Responsibilities.

    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 provided and guidance should be provided to assist in the process of developing a portfolio. 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.

    Care should be taken that the process used provides the learner with an opportunity to demonstrate competence and is not too demanding as to prevent learners from taking up the RPL option towards gaining a qualification.

    Access to the Qualification:

    This qualification is designed for learners who:
  • Are new-entry workers to a machine-based metals processing/production process.
  • Preferably completed the National Certificate: Metals Processing NQF level 2.
  • Have attended courses and applied the knowledge gained in the workplace.
  • Are already workers and have acquired the skills and knowledge without attending formal courses.
  • Are part of a learnership programme, which integrates structured learning, and work experience.

    Access for learners with physical disabilities is dependant:
  • On the type and severity of disability.
  • On the nature of Metals Processing and the requirements of equipment operation. 

  • RECOGNISE PREVIOUS LEARNING? 

    QUALIFICATION RULES 
    In order to be awarded this qualification, learners have to be declared competent in:
  • All listed unit standards in the Fundamental category of the qualification (40 credits).
  • All listed unit standards in the Core category of the qualification (74 credits).
  • A choice of unit standards from the Elective category of the qualification totalling a minimum of 6 credits. 

  • EXIT LEVEL OUTCOMES 
    1. Prepare and set up the process for metals processing, working safely and with due care for fellow workers and the environment.

    2. Monitor and control a ferrous and/or non-ferrous metal processing operation, using a range of production processes.

    3. Select appropriate procedures to solve familiar problems within Metals Processing operations and operate within clearly defined contexts, with some scope for personal decision-making and responsibility.

    4. Communicate with team members, internal customers and members of supervisory/management levels by demonstrating the ability to gather and summarise relevant information from a range of sources and report this information.

    5. Handle and resolve interpersonal conflict in the workplace. 

    ASSOCIATED ASSESSMENT CRITERIA 
    Associated Assessment Criteria for Exit Level Outcome 1:
  • Appropriate materials/consumables tools and instruments are used to make adjustments or changes to process equipment set up.
  • Equipment specifications and manufacturing requirements are complied with.
  • Process equipment availability and readiness for manufacturing processes is maintained.
  • A clean and safe work area is maintained.
  • Applicable policies and procedures are applied and adhered to.

    Associated Assessment Criteria for Exit Level Outcome 2:
  • The production line is brought back into specification by responding to equipment indicators when deviations occur.
  • A clean and safe work area is maintained.
  • Applicable safety, health, environmental and risk management policies, procedures and specifications are applied and adhered to.

    Associated Assessment Criteria for Exit Level Outcome 3:
  • Appropriate procedures are selected to solve problems in an efficient and effective manner.
  • Unfamiliar problems are accurately and timeously reported to appropriate personnel.

    Associated Assessment Criteria for Exit Level Outcome 4:
  • Relevant information is gathered from a range of sources and accurately summarised and reported in an appropriate and timely manner to relevant parties.
  • Production issues in work area is discussed and resolved on a regular basis with other team members, internal customers and supervisors/management.

    Associated Assessment Criteria for Exit Level Outcome 5:
  • Information is collected from a range of role-players, considering feelings and the actual problem.
  • A range of conflict resolution methods and behaviour of different people in a conflict situation is considered, choosing that most appropriate to the situation.
  • The conflict situation is resolved in accordance with organizational standards.

    Integrated Assessment:

    Integrated assessment at the level of the qualification provides an opportunity for learners to show they are able to integrate concepts, actions and ideas achieved across a range of unit standards and contexts.

    Integrated assessment must evaluate the quality of observable performance as well as the thinking behind the performance, and must be based on a summative assessment guide. The guide will spell out how the assessor will assess different aspects of the performance and will include:
  • Observing the learner at work (both in the primary activity as well as other interactions).
  • Asking questions and initiating short discussions to test understanding.
  • Looking at records and reports in the portfolio and reviewing previous assessments.

    In some cases inference will be necessary to determine competence depending on the nature and context within which performance takes place.

    It is necessary to ensure that the fundamental part of the qualification is also targeted to ensure that while the competence may have been achieved in a particular context, learners are able to apply it in a range of other contexts and for further learning. The assessment should also ensure that all the critical cross-field outcomes have been achieved.

    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 both the explicit tasks required for the qualification as well as the understanding of the concepts and principles that underpin the activities associated with Metals Processing. 

  • INTERNATIONAL COMPARABILITY 
    An extensive international search was conducted for evidence of comparable education and training systems. Countries included in the search were Australia, New Zealand, Britain, Scotland, Canada, North and South America, Sweden, Finland, Germany and South African SADC countries.

    Additional to this, subject matter experts, party to the standards generation process, contacted their international counterparts to establish what learning processes they have available. There is evidence of training material, although not aligned to any formal qualification framework.

    Despite the fact that Metals Processing operations are evident and well developed world-wide, relatively little sources of outcomes-based, standards-based and/or learning material could be found during the research. Indications are that operatives are mostly trained on the job by skilled co-workers, supported by equipment and input material suppliers.

    The comparison was made difficult because neither the fundamental learning elements nor some of the generic core elements are specified. A further complication is brought about by the fact that the learning required crosses several levels. Further to this, the New Zealand qualification does not specify the level of complexity that has to be achieved. The applied competence in the South African qualification focuses on achieving a specific level of competence required by a person working in a real-world metals processing context in which a degree of specialisation, experience and problem-solving ability is required.

    Further comparison elements are highlighted below:

    Comparison Element; New Zealand Metals Finishing qualifications; This Metals Finishing qualifications suite:
  • Scope; Nominal competence in a wide range of processing methods; Mastery of specific fabrication methods in context.
  • Approach; Task based; Skills development-based.
  • Level(s); Level 2, 3 and 4; Levels 2 and 3, with Level 4 based on the Further Education and Training Certificate: Management: SAQA ID # 23656.
  • Context; Partly contextualised; Contextual.
  • Assessment; Institution or work-based; Work-based and portfolio-based.
  • Essential embedded knowledge; Not clear; Specified.
  • Credits; 49, 82 and 144 respectively; 120 and 120 respectively.
  • Fundamental learning; Not formally specified; Specified.
  • Business relations; Not formally specified; Specified.
  • Working with and developing others; Not formally specified; Specified.
  • Life skills; Not formally specified; Specified.

    There are considerable similarities in the competencies required (including metals processing, materials handling and quality of work), but the approach of the South African qualification looks at whole-person development in not only technological, but also in team- and business-related skills and makes explicit assumptions related to level of schooling and life skills.

    It is evident that the technical content of the South African qualifications for Metals Processing is of similar quality and value to learners and the provision of learning according to NQF principles. 

  • ARTICULATION OPTIONS 
    The qualification has been designed and structured so that qualifying learners can move both horizontally from one area of specialisation to another, and vertically, further specialising in a particular skills area.

    This qualification articulates horizontally with the following qualifications:
  • ID 21012: National Certificate: Power and Telecommunication Cable Manufacturing, NQF Level 3.

    This qualification articulates vertically with the following qualifications:
  • ID 23656: Further Education and Training Certificate: Management, NQF Level 4.
  • ID 21013: National Certificate: Power and Telecommunication Cable Manufacturing, NQF Level 4.

    The qualification should also, in terms of the fundamental, non-manufacturing unit standards and other portable skills, articulate with any other qualification at level 3 in the fields of:
  • Engineering.
  • Machine-based production processes such as Product Coating and Metal Production.

    This qualification has been designed so that the learner can meaningfully articulate into the Higher Education and Training band once s/he has obtained the NQF Level 4 qualification, Further Education and Training Certificate: Management (ID 23656).

    Employers, learners and/or institutions should be able to evaluate the outcomes of these qualifications against the needs of a production context and structure top-up learning appropriately.

    Equally, holders of other qualifications may be evaluated against this qualification for the purpose of RPL.
