PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION 
Purpose:

The purpose of this Qualification is to ensure that practitioners are able to screen and identify for potential barriers and strengths, facilitate and support learning activities, differentiate curriculum including assessment tools, adapt learning and teaching support materials including assistive devices and e-learning, and assist with making the environment conducive to learning. The Qualification will enable practitioners to consult collaboratively with relevant internal and external service providers.

This Qualification will be useful for educators, teacher assistants, rehabilitation workers, house parents, and professionals who are responsible for providing support and facilitation in/to inclusive settings, such as district personnel, support/auxiliary workers, therapists, social workers, childcare workers, equity officers, orientation and mobility practitioners, helping professionals (including health care workers and therapists), Education, Training and Development practitioners, trainers, and managers.

The Qualification provides access to learning and career opportunities for professionals including teachers (educators) who want to specialise in inclusion. It also provides opportunties for learners who wish to progress and access further learning at NQF Level 6. This Qualification will not confer learners/practitioners with educator status on qualifying.

Qualified learners are capable of:
  • Collaborating with relevant stakeholders and support services to improve learning site practice.
  • Facilitating inclusive learning programmes and developing support programmes.
  • Supporting and guiding learning in inclusive settings to promote learner wellness.
  • Screening for potential barriers and strengths.
  • Assessing the learner needs in order to determine the required level of support.
  • Facilitating accessibility to an enabling inclusive learning environment.
  • Managing administrative functions.

    Rationale:

    This Qualification will enable practitioners dealing with adults and children experiencing barriers to learning to access equitable learning in the education, training and development fields. Practitioners will thus be able to recognise various barriers to learning and learners experiencing learning difficulties in a range of settings. It would also equip practitioners to provide and support educational opportunities and experiences so that it would enable learners experiencing barriers to learning to participate and integrate successfully into a variety of contexts.

    Current legislation addressing inclusive education, training and development requires practitioners to implement appropriate learning site interventions that respond to the diverse needs of individual learners. This Qualification will enable and equip practitioners to support learners and contribute in building an inclusive society.

    This Qualification complements a range of qualifications and addresses the need for capacity building, redress and equity for those practitioners who hold or aspire to positions within inclusive education, training and development contexts. It will also enable practitioners to address drop out and failure rates amongst learners who experience barriers to learning and development.

    Through this Qualification, inclusive education competence forms part of an integrated national framework for learning achievements. It is aimed at facilitating access to education, training and career paths for practitioners, ensuring learner mobility and progression on the framework through articulation with other Qualifications.

    This Qualification comprehensively addresses and complements the need for practitioners to be adequately equipped with competencies to manage and support diverse learner needs. It also provides recognition for practitioners' working experience, and allows for the achievement of a Qualification that builds on the Further Education and Training Certificate: Inclusive Education, Level 4.

    In addition, qualified educators can use this Qualification to gain competencies as part of ongoing professional development. The unit standards in this Qualification can be used as a basis for short courses or skills programmes.

    The learning pathway for Inclusive Education:
  • FETC: Inclusive Education.
  • National Certificate: Inclusive Education, Level 5.
  • Bachelor: Inclusive Education, Level 6.
  • National Certificate: Inclusive Education, Level 6.
  • National Certificate: Inclusive Education, Level 7.
  • Master: Inclusive Education, Level 8. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    It is assumed that learners have acquired competence in:
  • Communication, NQF Level 4 or equivalent.

    Recognition of prior learning (RPL):

    This Qualification can be achieved wholly, or in part, through recognition of prior learning. Evidence can be presented in a variety of forms, including previous international or local Qualifications, reports, testimonials, mentoring, functions performed, portfolios, work records and performance records. As such, evidence should be judged according to the general principles of assessment described in the notes to assessors below. Learners who have met the requirements of any Unit Standard that forms part of this Qualification may apply for recognition of prior learning to the relevant Education and Training Quality Assurance body (ETQA). The applicant must be assessed against the specific outcomes and with the assessment criteria for the relevant Unit Standards. A Qualification will be awarded should a learner demonstrate that the exit level outcomes of the Qualification have been attained.

    Access to the Qualification:

    There is open access to this Qualification bearing in mind learning assumed to be in place. It is recommended that learners have experience and interest in working with adults and/or children experiencing diverse learning needs.

    Integrated assessment:

    The assessment criteria in the Unit Standards are performance-based, assessing applied competence of Inclusive Education practitioners, rather than only underpinning knowledge, or only skills. The Critical Cross-Field Outcomes are also achieved in the Unit Standards. In addition to the competence assessed to achieve the Unit Standards, learners must demonstrate that they can achieve the outcomes in an integrated manner, dealing effectively with different and random demands related to Inclusive Education practitioner occupational and learning contexts, to qualify, and assessment approaches used should be appropriate for assessing applied competence of Inclusive Education practitioners. Integrated assessment is meaningful if there are clear relationships between the purpose statement, Exit Level Outcomes and integrated assessment of this Qualification.

    Learners who qualify must be able to integrate concepts, ideas and behaviours across Unit Standards to achieve the purpose of the Qualification. Evidence (as specified in the associated assessment criteria) is required that the learner is able to achieve the exit level outcomes of the Qualification as a whole and in an integrated way, and thus its purpose, at the time of the award of the Qualification.

    Evidence of integration may be presented by learners when being assessed against the Unit Standards, and separate assessment for integration may not be necessary. Workplace experience can be recognised when assessing towards this Qualification. Integrated assessment should include observable performance as well as the quality of thinking behind such performance. Formative assessment can be employed during learning towards the Unit Standards and during integration to achieve Exit Level Outcomes, to ensure that integration takes place when summative assessment is employed. 

  • INTERNATIONAL COMPARABILITY 
    Internationally, most education and training for the facilitation of learning in inclusive education is aimed at qualified teacher/educator education and training. The following African countries including Rwanda, Kenya, Swaziland, Zambia, Ethiopia and Lesotho, were reviewed, however training for inclusion is mostly limited to teacher training, which is pitched at a higher level than this South African Qualification. Such teacher training, usually in the form of short courses, includes peer support, classroom management, adapting the curriculum, group work, encouraging family support, and promoting positive attitudes. These aspects are all included in this South African Qualification. The following countries were chosen in terms of best practice as they have similar approaches including Yemen, Macedonia, Pakistan, Bangladesh, India, Iran, Vietnam, Papua New Guinea, Thailand, Brazil, Cambodia, Cameroon, Mongolia, Nepal, Afghanistan, and Romania. Uganda was also chosen as best practice as it has similar inclusive education policies to that of South Africa, but also limits training to higher levels, mostly for qualified teachers.

    Cambodia has a short (five-day) in-service programme for teachers including modules for:
  • Defining special needs.
  • Disability awareness.
  • Education for children with special needs.
  • Responding to diversity.
  • Teaching children with special needs basic skills.
  • Advice for teaching children with disabilities.

    In India, the approach to inclusion has been integration within schools. General teachers learn to:
  • Establish a baseline of existing levels of competence.
  • Plan long and short-term educational interventions.
  • Understand child focused learning.
  • Facilitate learning.
  • Manage classrooms.
  • Develop curriculum-based, criterion-referenced materials for assessment, identification, planning, implementation and evaluation.
  • Develop learning materials, including facilitator guides.
  • Prepare monitoring tools, that also allow parent participation.
  • Enhance communication skills.
  • Enhance self image.
  • Life skills.

    All of the above competencies are included in this South African Qualification.

    Equivalent Canadian Qualifications are aimed at teachers and address the following skills:
  • Prepare subject material for presentation to students according to an approved curriculum.
  • Teach students using a systematic plan of lectures, discussions, audio-visual presentations, and laboratory, shop and field studies.
  • Assign and correct homework.
  • Prepare, administer and correct tests.
  • Evaluate progress, determine individual needs of students and discuss results with parents and school officials.
  • Prepare and implement remedial programmes for students requiring extra help.
  • Participate in staff meetings, educational conferences and teacher training workshops.
  • Advise students on course selection and on vocational and personal matters.
  • Supervise student teachers.
  • Curriculum and instruction relating to recent developments in Inclusive Education.
  • Practice-based research.

    In the United States of America, equivalent competence is required of so-called paraprofessional teachers and includes:
  • What is inclusive education.
  • Creating learning opportunities for students.
  • Instruction methods and techniques, consequences and supports, individualised adaptations and behaviour as communication.
  • Student relationships.

    In the United Kingdom, programmes focus primarily on higher levels, for example, Masters or Postgraduate Diplomas in Inclusive Education. Nonetheless, examples of equivalent programmes in the United Kingdom include:
  • Foundations of inclusive education: main elements of inclusive education strategies; changing attitudes to disability; screening for disabilities.
  • Overcoming impairments: good classroom practice.
  • Adapting the curriculum.
  • Classroom Practice.
  • Changing Behaviour.
  • Teaching Strategies.

    All the above aspects are addressed in this South African Qualification.

    In Hong Kong, inclusive education programmes are generally shorter than this South African Qualification, and address:
  • Theoretical foundation, including basic concepts in special needs and inclusive education, paradigm shift and the principles of inclusive education, inclusive education policy in Hong Kong and its development, individual differences and types of special needs.
  • Classroom teaching, including educational assessment of multiple intelligence, strategies and skills for teaching students with special needs, behavioral management, curriculum adaptation, cooperative learning and teaching, and application of information technology.
  • Outside the classroom, including whole school approach, partnership with parents, consultation and collaboration with other professionals, resources in the community, and inclusive education and inclusive society.

    On the Australia framework, Qualifications exist at higher levels than this Qualification, for example, Bachelor of Education - Special Education. The New Zealand framework credits competence at lower and higher levels, but not at the level of this Qualification. Existing Qualifications include a Graduate Diploma, in Tertiary Teaching (Level 7), a Master of Education (Level 9), a Level 4 Certificate in Educational Support (lower than this qualification), and a Certificate for trained teachers.

    Conclusion:

    All of the qualifications and programmes investigated have aspects that have been addressed and included in the National Certificate: Inclusive Education Qualification, Level 5. The South African Qualification is more comprehensive and is in line with National Policy.

The ETQA is responsible for 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 ETQAs and in terms of the moderation guideline detailed 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 programs 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.

    To register as an assessor, the following are required:
  • Detailed documentary proof of relevant Qualification/s, practical training completed, and experience gained at a NQF level above the level of this Qualification.
  • NQF recognised assessor credit.

    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 level 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 to the judgement that would be made by other assessors.
