  • INTERNATIONAL COMPARABILITY 
    This Higher Certificate: Housing Development qualification at NQF Level 5 is primarily providing knowledge, skills, values and attitudes of people working or intending to purse a career in housing or related fields such as social housing entrusted with general administrative including project or property development or management functions, community development support service and liaison with communities services. It addresses a broad range of competencies including monitoring and measuring the performance of housing programmes and projects. Hence, the focus of this qualification is on showing understanding of the housing regulatory environment to effectively manage customer/ beneficiary housing related requirements.

    This qualification was compared with equivalent qualifications from a number of countries. The purpose of this International Comparability study is to facilitate the development of a meaningful learning path and its associated curriculum incorporating both theoretical and practical vocational skills which will ensure compatibility, comparability and compliance with existing international qualification specifications and regulations.

    Research was conducted in developed and developing economies to benchmark this qualification against equivalent qualifications in the following countries:
  • New Zealand.
  • United Kingdom.
  • Ireland.
  • South America (Brazil).
  • Scotland.
  • Sri Lanka.
  • India.
  • Netherlands.
  • China.
  • Hong Kong.
  • Norway.

    However, the following countries were also examined and have been found to have qualifications and/or learning programmes offered by some institutions and/or service providers that are registered with the Chartered Institute for Housing (CIH) in the United Kingdom, an institute that has relations with the South African government through the National Department of Housing.

    In many countries the universities that offer management courses have a first degree at a professional entry level qualification. This qualification is a higher certificate and hence broad in terms of the extent of the competencies it can offer as compared to many certificate course offerings in housing. The learning programmes and short courses on offer were compared in terms of the scope, content, duration, and qualification levels to benchmark best practices. The comparison focused on learning programmes offered by accredited institutions and organisations which include amongst others universities, non-governmental organisations service providers, in both developing and developed nations.

    However, the qualification compares favourably with a number of certificate courses mostly offered at level 4 in the United Kingdom through the Chartered Institute of Housing qualifications where many countries in Europe subscribe to. These constitute a series of high level short courses, designed to meet the needs of the individual who will be managing either community housing or social housing.

    International qualifications and programmes in the field of housing were examined to ensure that the qualification is comparable with qualification models, unit standards generated, and competencies required for learners at this level in the field of housing to assess similarities or contrasts in the qualifications.

    SADC Region:

    Countries that face similar social, economic, technological challenges like South Africa within the SADC region in particular such as Botswana, Malawi, Swaziland, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Sierra Leone, Rwanda, Ghana, Kenya, Nairobi, and Tanzania to name but a few have been examined in terms of the qualification models and standards including learning programmes and short courses offered, unfortunately none of these have been found to have qualifications and/or standards in place. This qualification will therefore provide a model that could be benchmarked from by other countries especially within the SADC region.

    It was discovered that in most countries especially in Netherlands, Norway, and Hong Kong, courses in housing are aimed at social housing or rental housing as most of their housing provision is predominantly rental accommodation as opposed to community and individual based type of housing found in South Africa.

    The following qualifications compares well with this qualification in terms of content, scope and duration although they are not specifically addressing housing at the level and context that South Africa does given the dynamics in terms of social, economic and cultural diversity orientation. However, some of the countries are using a curriculum model as opposed to outcomes-based model in which this qualification is structured hence it is not easy to compare content and scope.

    United Kingdom:

    The results indicated that the countries that are affiliated to the Centre for Housing Institute (CIH) offer programmes that contain some elements of the qualification generated and showed prevalence of the following themes in terms of content of the unit standards of courses offered mainly in the United Kingdom and New Zealand which are recognised as leaders in the generation of qualifications and unit standards. The qualification and unit standards are based on the international courses for housing.

    EDEXCEL Level 5 BTEC Higher National Certificate in Housing:

    This qualification is aimed at preparing students for a range of careers in the public, private and voluntary housing sectors. It is designed to provide flexibility, knowledge and skills and motivation as a basis for progression to undergraduate and postgraduate studies.

Students will be prepared for a range of careers in the public, private and voluntary housing sectors. It is targeted at administrators, customer services officers, community development officers, local government estates officers and housing officers including administrative assistants.

    The following units are offered in the qualification which compares favourably with our qualification:
  • Housing and the Law, Level 4, 6 credits.
  • Housing Policy, Level 4, 10 credits.
  • Housing Practice, Level 4, 6 credits.
  • Managing Organisational Resources in Housing.
  • Organising Service Quality in Housing Organisation.

    CIH Level 4 Certificate in Housing:

    The CIH Level 4 Certificate in Housing has been designed to provide the first stage of qualifications leading to Corporate membership of the Chartered Institute of Housing. It has been designed to develop current skills and knowledge for housing professionals to meet the challenges affecting the Housing sector. The CIH Level 4 Certificate in Housing is a practitioner led qualification responding directly to the current needs of employers in a period of rapid development of the social housing role. The CIH Level 4 Certificate in Housing will provide learners with the opportunity to follow a specialist pathway in; Housing with Support; Planning and Development; Student Accommodation Management; Neighbourhood and Community Services; and Governance in Housing.

    The CIH Level 4 Certificate in Housing provides a progression route to the CIH Level 4 Diploma in Housing. The CIH Level 4 Diploma in Housing provides progression to Level 5 qualifications in Housing delivered through validated Institutes of Higher Education. The qualification offers the following unit standards which compare well with our qualification:

    CIOB-CIH Level 4 Certificate in Housing Maintenance Management:

    The CIOB-CIH Level 4 Certificate in Housing Maintenance Management is a vocationally related qualification for maintenance professionals operating at management level within the social housing sector and non-technical staff from either a customer services or housing management background.

    The Level 4 Certificate in Housing Maintenance Management will be intended for those people who are seeking or currently employed within either a management or senior technical role. They will be providing a service in the management of operations and surveying/technical staff. They will be responsible for managing budgets and producing performance reports.

    This qualification aims to develop specialist skills necessary for employment and it will help learners to progress to become a recognised professional working in the field of in housing maintenance.

    The following units comprise the qualification which compare favourably with our qualification:
  • Housing Strategy and Policy.
  • Financial Management for Housing Maintenance.
  • Customer Services in a Housing Maintenance Context.
  • Managing People in a Housing Maintenance Context.
  • Health and Safety Management and Control.
  • Housing Technology and Housing Maintenance.

    New Zealand:

    Research was also conducted to identify housing programmes offered in New Zealand and there was no housing qualifications were found at the level of this qualification to be compared with this qualification.

    However, some of the programmes found are pegged at lower levels that the level of the qualification under review.

    Qualifications for social housing as the most alterative housing mechanism for housing were also searched from the following countries and sites were researched:
  • Australia (National Training Information Service).
  • UK (Chartered Institute of Housing, City and Guilds).
  • New Zealand (National Qualifications Framework).
  • Canada (Department of Human Resources and Skills Development).
  • Holland.
  • Sweden.
  • Norway.

    The latter four (Canada, Holland, Sweden and Norway) were included in the research because they have active social housing movements and useful exchanges have already taken place between those countries and South Africa. However, no useful material could be found from any of them.

    Holland:

    Investigations conducted through Dutch social housing technical experts currently in South Africa revealed that Holland does not have an NQF type structure, so a sector-based qualification system has been considered for social housing. At present this has not materialised. Some ad hoc or short courses in social housing were found. The most promising of these was described in Dutch, which made interpretation difficult, but it appears that many of the topics covered by this qualification are also covered, interestingly, with a task orientation similar to ours. Some university-based courses in urban renewal or urban development are available, but these are not considered relevant to the present discussion.

    Sweden:
  • In Sweden, the only qualifications for social housing that could be found related to trades in construction. These were not considered relevant to the present study.

    Norway:
  • No sector-wide or even national qualifications were found for social housing, except some relating to construction.

    New Zealand:
  • Although New Zealand has an NQF very similar to ours, nothing on social housing could be found. The closest was several unit standards from the field Family, community and social studies, for example a level 2 unit "Complete a study of societal influences on housing". This is not related to social housing.

    This leaves the results from Australia and the UK that provided useful comparisons.

    Australia:

    The National Training Information Service of the National Australian Training Authority revealed that there are three national qualifications in social housing. These are:
  • CHC30702 - Certificate III in Social Housing.
  • CHC40802 - Certificate IV in Social Housing.
  • CHC50602 - Diploma of Social Housing.

    The first is introductory and is aimed at the admin assistant level. It focuses mostly on the social issues rather than any technical or maintenance issues. The Level IV certificate is intended for housing officers. It includes some management training, but is primarily for leasing and tenancy management functions. The Diploma of Social Housing is management oriented, and seems focused on middle to senior management who require a general understanding of social housing rather than a more task-oriented focus.

    Overall these Australian qualifications are similar in style and coverage to this qualification in social housing. They have fewer core unit standards and more electives, and they are more generic than this qualification, which is more task-oriented. Given the emerging nature of the social housing sector in South Africa and it skills base, this greater task-orientation is to be expected and is considered appropriate.

    United Kingdom:

    The Chartered Institute of Housing is the primary agency for training in social housing. The qualifications obtained through the CIH are:
  • Level 4 Certificate/Diploma in Housing.
  • Professional qualifications - these are courses that can be taken at undergraduate level or at postgraduate level, either to re-orientate another degree course towards housing, or to extend an existing housing degree course.

    Conclusion in terms of international comparability:

    Comparing our own qualification and related proposed qualifications with other countries, it seems clear that we are operating at an equivalent level with other countries, including those which are leaders in this field, as well as taking into account the particular requirements of developing nations, including our own. Our qualification falls well within the occupational profiles and training standards of the other relevant countries that we have investigated.
