PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION 
Purpose:

The purpose of the qualification is to provide learners, training providers and employers with the standards and the range of learning required to work effectively in the automotive manufacturing environment and manufacture vehicles to the international standards required by purchasers of new vehicles.

The primary skill that is recognised in this qualification is the ability to apply the theory behind automotive manufacturing to achieve a flexible operator in the motor industry who is able to work as part of a team to assemble a new vehicle on a production line.

This qualification has been designed to accommodate learners from various areas of vehicle manufacturing and to include skills relevant to different automotive manufacturers. This qualification has a generic core section and provides an avenue for learners to specialise in one of the following 4 specialisation areas:
  • Body Construction.
  • Paint Operations.
  • Vehicle Assembly.
  • Engine Machining.

    Training and assessment will be contextualised to the specialisation area of the learner, and the learner will be required to prove competence in the specialisation area enrolled in. Additional skills required in Logistics, Administration, Quality Assurance and Technical Non-Production areas are not included in this qualification, but these skills could be covered through generic qualifications and/or unit standards that are already in existence.

    This qualification is the foundational qualification for a vehicle manufacturer and learners will be able to build on this qualification to achieve higher levels of vehicle manufacturing in the specialisation area selected.

    After achieving this qualification learners will be able to:
  • Demonstrate understanding of how a vehicle is assembled.
  • Communicate with peers and supervisors in an automotive manufacturing context.
  • Use and maintain automotive workshop tools and equipment.
  • Add value to the production of a motor vehicle in a specialised area.

    Rationale:

    The Automotive Manufacturing Industry Certificate (AMIC) has been the benchmark for vehicle manufacturers in South Africa for many years, but this certificate has not been aligned to unit standards. This has meant that learners who have gone through the learning process have achieved valuable skills, but have not received any form of recognition for these skills. Various interventions have been entered into over the years to try and align the AMIC programme with SAQA unit standards and qualifications, but it was found that the AMIC programme was more complex than a SAQA qualification and covered various unrelated areas. This difficulty has been addressed by focusing achievement of this qualification on the essential elements of vehicle manufacturing and allowing manufacturers to choose additional existing courses for their learners in more generic areas such as logistics, administration, quality assurance and technical non-production. This means that a qualification can now be developed to give recognition for all people who work in a vehicle manufacturing plant in any of the areas identified as a specialisation for this qualification.

    This qualification recognises the skills, knowledge and values relevant in the workplace and will cater for learners who:
  • Have attended courses and need to apply the knowledge gained to activities in the workplace.
  • Are already workers and have acquired skills and knowledge without having attended formal training.
  • Are part of a learnership programme which integrates structured learning and operational experience.

    This is the first qualification that provides recognition for vehicle manufacturers who work as part of the vehicle production line, and candidates may continue learning to a higher level within the selected specialisation area. People who have achieved the skills and knowledge outlined in this qualification are normally employed in one of the following areas in vehicle manufacturing:
  • Body Construction.
  • Paint Operations.
  • Vehicle Assembly.
  • Engine Machining.

    It also provides learners who have gained relevant experience in the workplace with an opportunity to obtain credits through an RPL process. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    Learners registering for this qualification should already have achieved a General Education and Training Certificate at NQF Level 1or equivalent.

    If the learner does not already have such a qualification, learning in preparation for this qualification should include:
  • Literacy and communication at NQF Level 1.
  • Mathematical Literacy at NQF Level 1.

    Recognition of Prior Learning:

    The structure of this 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. Recognition of Prior Learning will be done by means of an Integrated Assessment as mentioned in the previous paragraph.

    This Recognition of Prior Learning may allow:
  • For accelerated access to further learning.
  • Gaining of credits towards any of the Exit Level Outcomes or unit standards in this qualification.

    All recognition of Prior Learning is subject to quality assurance by the relevant accredited Education and Training Quality Assurance Body (ETQA) and must be conducted by a registered workplace assessor. Identified outcomes may have been acquired in a range of economic sectors and these will be considered as appropriate where the candidate provides evidence of the applicability of that learning to this qualification.

    Access to the Qualification:

    This qualification is open for anyone who wishes to pursue a career in vehicle manufacturing, but prior achievement of the "Learning Assumed to be in Place" would facilitate an easier progression into learning programmes to address the outcomes of this qualification.

    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 linked. Whenever possible, the assessment of knowledge, skills, attitudes and values shown in the exit level outcomes should be integrated.

    A variety of methods must be used in assessment 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 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 outcomes, embedded knowledge and critical cross-field outcomes are assessed. The assessment of the critical cross-field outcomes should be integrated with the assessment of specific outcomes and embedded knowledge. 

  • INTERNATIONAL COMPARABILITY 
    This qualification has been designed to specifically cater for the unique needs of the South African vehicle manufacturers and is at a level below that which most other countries provide training at. The countries looked at for international comparability include Japan, Germany, Thailand, England, Spain, Mexico, Turkey, United States of America and Brazil.

    South Africa has adopted a much more labour intensive approach to manufacturing vehicles in order to provide jobs and meet economic requirements. Each of the above countries use skilled artisans to manufacture vehicles, and focus on advanced technology and robotics more than the South African manufacturers. These countries also only employ qualified people in the manufacturing plant, whereas South Africa employs unskilled labour that can be trained to this qualification in a manner that integrates learning and work. Where additional training is required in the other countries, training is conducted off the production line, whereas the training in South Africa is conducted in the plant.

    Elements of the Institute of Motor Industry (IMI) in the UK have been used in benchmarking best practice procedures in some of the unit standards used in this qualification. The NVQ qualifications offered in the UK cover all the same objectives of this qualification but at a higher level of complexity. The qualifications are offered as an internship wherein the learner enrols with a college or training centre for the theoretical component, and achieves the practical component in-house. The qualifications are all based on specific levels of performance, and lead to progressive levels of complexity, but are identified as separate qualifications. The learning towards these qualifications is offered through long-term learner-employer relationships, with short-term stints at a training centre. Qualification titles in the UK include:
  • Vehicle Mechanical and Electronic Systems, Maintenance and Repair: Level 3: (Q1015916).
  • Vehicle Refinishing: Level 3: (Q1017590).
  • Vehicle Body Fitting: Level 2: (Q1015913).
  • Vehicle Mechanical and Electronic Systems, unit Replacement: Level 2: (Q1015914).

    The qualifications offered in Germany are also vocational qualifications with theoretical components being achieved through a specified period at a training centre. The qualifications are aimed at achieving complete competence in all aspects of vehicle manufacturing through a progressive series of qualifications and includes mechanical, electrical and coach works. The training programmes are progressive qualifications of one-year duration each and include ongoing training through workbooks in which the trainee is required to complete evidence of understanding for each month of the registered year of learning. Germany has a requirement that competent people be licensed to operate under the meister (master craftsman) programme, and this licence is valid for a period of two years. The qualification titles offered in Germany include:
  • Auto Fachman: Level 1.
  • Auto Fachman: Level 2.
  • Auto Fachman: Level 3.
  • Auto Fachman: Meister.

    America uses a system of specialisation areas, with a master technician being identified as a person who is competent in all areas and will be able to assemble any part of a vehicle. The learning is conducted through apprenticeships and has specialisation areas for engine technicians, transmission technicians, steering and suspension technicians, brake technicians, electrical system technicians, heating and air-conditioning technicians, driveability and performance technicians and lubrication technicians.

    Other African countries do not have full manufacturing plants, but import semi knocked down units that are then assembled by trained operators without a formal qualification. It is anticipated that this qualification will have a strong appeal within the African market and will provide qualifications for people that would otherwise be unrecognised for their skills and knowledge.

    Conclusion:

    This qualification focuses on the specific requirements of the South African job market and provides recognition for skills and knowledge at a basic level for learners who have entered into the workforce and are able to assist in the automotive manufacturing and assembly process.
