PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION 
Purpose:

Typically, qualifying learners are employed in the construction sector as painters, tilers, plasterers, masons, joiners, carpenters, roofers, or are self-employed as micro-enterprise owners who provide services to construction contractors and members of the public (e.g. private households). Consequently, this employment sector consists of many small and micro-enterprises.

Qualifying learners will be able to:
  • Plan construction activities using mathematical principles.
  • Communicate with relevant persons.
  • Plan construction activity.
  • Establish work area.
  • Execute construction activity.

    Rationale:

    As a result of past legacies, many practitioners within the building construction sector were denied career advancement and possible recognition as qualified tradesmen. This was as a direct result of poor educational opportunities at some schools, leading to a lack of entry to formal training institutions. This qualification:
  • Encourages individual entrepreneurship and job creation.
  • Supports redress and provide access to employment opportunities.
  • Promotes career advancement and further learning.
  • Results in transformation/social upliftment of individuals, communities and the South African society at large.

    Most learners taking this qualification have not had access to structured skills training in the past, and therefore their competence has not been formally recognised. Although they may have been economically active within the area of construction building and civil construction for many years, most unqualified construction painters, tilers, plasterers, masons, joiners, carpenters, roofers have gained their experience in workplaces where little attention was paid to efficient, correct performance within acceptable time/production rates.

    The qualification not only allows qualifying learners to gain access to the formal construction sector, but also recognises any previously acquired competence that current workers in the sector may hold and improves their employability prospects. Personal career development and job satisfaction, social and economic transformation not only of persons who are skilled in building and civil construction, but of their local communities and the national economy, are further benefits to be derived from the skills enhancement gained through achievement of this qualification. This qualification will support the creation of a larger community of competent building and civil construction workers and ensure that this sector of the national economy is positively sustained.

    The range of competencies achieved by learners who successfully complete this qualification is transferable to other areas of training and fields of operation, thereby providing a basis for further learning in the construction sector, as well as possibilities of transferring into other fields of economic activity/employment. The construction sector requires a specific focus on quality management to ensure implementation compliant with Health and Safety Regulations. To ensure sustainability and a positive image of their businesses, employers demand high performance standards and quality workmanship. Qualified construction building and civil construction workers will deliver services of competitive quality; their earning ability will be increased.

    This qualification may be achieved through any of the (four) routes, which includes apprenticeship, learnership, internship, RPL. To successfully complete this qualification, the learner must spend a minimum time in the workplace and will be completed in this qualification over an 18-months period. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    It is assumed that learners are already competent in the following:
  • Communication at NQF Level 2.
  • Mathematical Literacy at NQF Level 2.

    Recognition of Prior Learning:

    Pre-assessments in both the Fundamental and Core areas of learning associated with this qualification will be conducted on learners prior to entry into the qualification. Successful demonstration of competence against all criteria contained in unit standards, against which prior learning is measured, will culminate in the award of credits to the learner. Learners' will not be required to repeat learning in those areas where prior learning is recognised and accredited.

    The Recognition of Prior Learning process will also be applied where learners', who have achieved this Qualification, wish to continue their further learning and enter other trades at NQF Level 3.

    Access to the Qualification:

    Access to the qualification is open, except where there are restrictions placed on learners, based on their physical ability to adhere to legal occupational health, safety and environment standards that may prevent them from gaining access to this qualification.

    Integrated Assessment:

    The Qualification will be awarded to learners who are able to successfully demonstrate competence, in a practical context, against all the specific outcomes contained in all unit standards and their associated assessment criteria, embedded knowledge (theory) and critical cross-field outcomes (generic abilities).

    Integrated assessment practices are achieved through the design and development of assessment activities that make use of a variety of assessment methods and tools that measure not only the learner's knowledge and ability to perform practical tasks and activities within a familiar context, but which also challenge learners to demonstrate their ability to deal with problem situations that might or can arise in the workplace from time and which require learners' to demonstrate their ability to adapt their performance to meet the requirements of changed circumstances and to reflect on what they are doing and why.

    Summative assessment consists of knowledge tests combined with assignments, case studies and practical demonstrations.

    The assessment methods and instruments used to assess learners in the context of this qualification can be applied to the assessment process for Recognition of Prior Learning. A holistic approach is applied when RPL assessments are conducted and include methods and tools that allow for evidence to be gathered from sources located within the broader context where the learner's knowledge and skills have been acquired over a period of time. These assessment methods and tools include assessments of the learner conducted by peers or superiors, certificates of attendance for short courses or panel assessments. 

  • INTERNATIONAL COMPARABILITY 
    Leading construction companies are located mainly in Europe, Canada and Australasia. Therefore, for best practice in Qualifications and Training comparisons were made with Finland, Germany, UK, Denmark, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Also chosen were various African countries known for quality workmanship in regard to e.g. painting & tiling. Painting & tiling were the main examples utilised, but in terms of training programmes, they are adequately representative of the whole range of Building and Civil Construction (Plastering, Masonry, Joinery, Carpentry, Roofing, Painting and Tiling) and the comparisons made are pertinent to all.

    Canadian education and training of construction painters includes an apprenticeship that combines on-the-job (practical) experience with in-school (technical) training and runs for two to three years, depending on the workplace component. The training comprises about 450 hours contact time (in the classroom) and 5400 hours in the workplace (not all this time is spent learning). This is longer than the credits of the South African qualification imply, and the entry requirements imply a level above the South African qualification. The Canadian qualification is divided into three levels, which may explain the difference in implied duration. The implied difference in duration between the Canadian and South African qualifications may also be due to the fact that the South African qualification does not address design aspects. Comparison with the South African qualification is as follows:

    Level 1:

    Canada; South Africa:
  • Safety regulations and procedures; Integrated.
  • Tools and equipment; Core.
  • Trade math; Fundamental.
  • Surface preparation; Core.
  • Coating systems; Core.

    India/ various African countries; South Africa:
  • Communication; Fundamental
  • Application of Number; Fundamental
  • Information Technology; Not included

    Various short courses of five-day duration are available in the United Kingdom. In addition, in England, Ireland and Wales, programmes are offered that differ from the national standard, with the implied equivalent of 150 credits on the South African framework. This is due mainly to the fact that some aspects in the elective component of the South African qualification are considered compulsory in the Irish qualification. They compare as follows with the South African qualification:

    England, Ireland and Wales; South Africa:
  • Set out work areas for tiling; Core.
  • A guide to setting up your own business; Elective.
  • Customer relations; Core.
  • Measuring, estimating and pricing; Fundamental and Core.

    The New Zealand framework includes a National Certificate in Floor and Wall Tiling at the level of this qualification. However, the qualification credits are spread across four levels, explaining the difference in credits (the New Zealand qualification has more credits). At the level of this South African qualification, equivalent credits are achieved. Comparison with the South African qualification is as follows:

    New Zealand; South Africa:
  • Manage first aid in emergency situations; Core.
  • Provide first aid; Core.
  • Provide resuscitation Level 2; Core.
  • Carry out safe working practices on construction sites; Integrated.

    Conclusions:

    These qualifications compare favourably with those offered in other countries in terms of content and level. Qualification structure differs somewhat, and the elective versus core component allocation varies. Other qualification programmes are generally longer than that of the South African qualification, as they include larger elective components, which, in South Africa, are included in different specialisation programmes registered at the same NQF levels. Whether Plastering, Masonry, Joinery, Carpentry, Roofing, Painting or Tiling, these conclusions broadly hold true whichever field in the Building and Civil Construction industry one examines.
