PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION 
Purpose:

The Qualification has been developed to meet the needs of the different types of community-based practitioners in the field who require a competency profile, recognition and validation of prior learning and experience. Learners who embark on this Qualification are generally persons who have made, or wish to consider making, community development their career.

This Qualification forms part of a learning and career pathway from NQF Level 1 to 6. The competencies outlined in this Qualification will also enable the delivery of a wide variety of community initiatives.

The Qualification consolidates and further develops Fundamental skills in Communication and Mathematical Literacy. At the Core of the Qualification are the NQF Level 3 skills and knowledge key to the role of the Community Development Worker at this Level. Particular NQF Level 2 skills and knowledge have been included to allow for a link and pathway from the NQF Level 1 Qualification in this field. The learner can select clusters of learning areas from a range of specialisations included in the Elective component of the Qualification.

By employing the successful learner and improving service delivery by NGOs, local government and other relevant organisations, this will enhance social and economic transformation in the country. Successful learners could possibly be employed in a numbers of positions currently available in Government including local government, social development, health as well as other organisations. These include but are not limited to:

Community development workers/practitioners, local economic development officers, agricultural extension officials, development co-ordinators/practitioners in an NGO, auxiliary social worker, etc.

In terms of Exit Level Outcomes the successful learner will be capable of:
  • Explaining the conceptual framework within which community development is understood.
  • Promoting responsible citizenship and investigate community needs to ensure participation towards a community development process.
  • Developing an understanding of the relationships within a community.
  • Supporting community development initiatives.

    Rationale:

    South Africa is a country where a significant proportion of the population is reliant on a wide range of services and support. These include health, housing, education, sanitation, safety and many other areas. These services and support are currently provided by a variety of formal and informal institutions and structures. The sector potentially involves more than a million people working in this community development arena. It could be said that any project involving development practitioners would fall into this category.

    A number of people are already involved in community development work in local communities. Many of these are unqualified, while others have qualifications in different areas, such as health, social service, local government, etc. Other workers in the field have many years of hands-on experience without any formal recognition or validation of their skills and knowledge.

    Community-based organisations and government structures are the major players in the area of community development. Local government, via municipalities, provides most community development workers. However, community development initiatives are promoted by most government departments. In addition, non-governmental organisations, including but not limited to civic structures and faith-based groups amongst others, as well as individual volunteers work in this area.

    As well as providing services and support, community development workers are also vital for interfacing between government and communities, and for advocating initiatives.

    This Qualification will provide the following benefits:
  • To the learner: Increased employability and employment mobility, as well as receiving recognition for competencies attained in the community development field.
  • To society: Increased employment and job satisfaction NQF Levels, as well as having better equipped personnel available to offer community development services.
  • To the sector: Better equipped personnel able to fulfil community development roles efficiently, effectively and in a manner likely to result in returning customers.
  • To the economy: A growing and confident community development sub-sector, able to increase employment, business opportunities, and investment return.

    This National Certificate: Community Development, NQF Level 3 meets the various needs across the field and supports the objectives of the NQF Levels. In particular, the focus is on improving the quality of delivery in the field and enabling access, redress, portability and articulation to enhance career options and learning opportunities. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    It is assumed that the learner attempting this Qualification is competent in:
  • Mathematical Literacy unit standards at NQF Level 2.
  • Communication unit standards in a South African language at NQF Level 2.

    Recognition of Prior Learning:

    This Qualification can be achieved wholly or in part through the Recognition of Prior Learning and the qualification may be granted to learners who have acquired the skills and knowledge without attending formal courses, providing they can demonstrate competence in the outcomes of the individual Unit Standards as required by the Fundamental, Core and Elective areas stipulated in the Qualification and by the ELOs.

    An RPL process may also be used to credit learners with Unit Standards in which they have developed the necessary competency as a result of workplace, experiential and other learning.

    Learners submitting themselves for RPL should be thoroughly briefed prior to the assessment, and will be required to submit a Portfolio of Evidence in the prescribed format to be assessed for formal recognition. While this is primarily a workplace-based qualification, evidence from other areas of endeavour may be introduced if pertinent to any of the ELOs.

    Access to the qualification:

    There is open access to any learner bearing in mind learning assumed to be in place.

  • Processes to develop leadership are implemented to enhance sustainability of development initiatives.

    Integrated Assessment:

    Integrated assessment at this Level will evaluate the learner's ability to combine actions and ideas across a range of activities and knowledge areas. The integrated assessment must specifically assess the learner's ability to:
  • Demonstrate competence by means of the practical application of the embedded knowledge in a manner that meets the performance standards required.
  • Illustrate a clear understanding of the concepts, theory and principles that underpin the practical action taken.

    The assessment will require assessment methods that measure and evaluate evidence gathered from on-the-job activities. Since assessment practices must be open, transparent, fair, valid and reliable (ensuring that no learner is disadvantaged in any way whatsoever), an integrated assessment approach is incorporated into the qualification.

    A variety of methods must be used in assessment, and tools and activities must be appropriate to the context in which the learner is working or will work. Where it is not possible to assess the learner in a workplace, 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. Whenever possible the assessment of knowledge, skills, attitudes and values shown in the Unit Standards should be integrated and, during integrated assessment, the assessor should make use of a range of formative and summative assessment tools and methods. Combinations of practical, applied, foundational and reflexive competencies should be assessed. Assessment should further ensure that all Specific Outcomes, Embedded Knowledge and Critical Cross-Field Outcomes are evaluated in an integrated way, utilising Assessment Criteria contained within each Unit Standard.

    Assessors must assess and give credit for the evidence of learning that has already been acquired through formal, informal and non-formal learning and work experience, as RPL assessment can be applied subject to the rules and criteria of the relevant ETQA. 

  • INTERNATIONAL COMPARABILITY 
    This Qualification has been compared to similar qualifications in other countries. This international comparability exercise has revealed that many countries have organisations that conduct some kind of community development. The extent to which training in this context takes place depends on a variety of factors: history of the country, community development tradition, size of rural population and so on. Various countries were reviewed, some with a strong community development culture and others quite the opposite. Countries often regarded as Western have strong community development movements, however the same environment in Africa is becoming stronger and more organised, particularly in terms of training and development.

    Countries were selected because of their history and tradition of providing both community development services and training & education in providing those services. They include: England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, New Zealand and Australia.

    England:

    The City & Guilds NOS 3057 qualification in Community Development (Level 3) includes the following similar features: relationships and networking; identification of needs; supporting of initiatives; dealing with conflict. It has the following features not included in the proposed qualification: review of self; funding; skills development.

    Other NVQ standards for Community Development work include similar competencies such as relationships; holistic approach; facilitation; frameworks. Others which are not included in the proposed qualification are those such as: develop NGOs; reflect on self. At Level 3 core unit standards include: relationships; facilitation; support; promotion of learning; identification of needs; working with the community; self-reflection. Electives include: funding; skills development; NGOs; facilitation; conflict/violence.

    Australia:

    CHC30802 is the Certificate in Community Services Work, which has outcomes relating to administration; communication; frameworks; facilitation; an holistic approach; relationships and networks. Specific areas of learning which match the proposed qualification include: working with children and youth; supporting group activities; violence; cultural diversity; volunteerism. Areas which are not offered in the South African Qualification include: environmental work; information systems; alcohol and drug abuse; medical services; residential care; disabilities; working with the aged; mental health issues; working with specific indigenous groups.

    Northern Ireland:

    The QCA in that country has accredited the CCEA Level 2 Certificate in Working in the community, which requires 100 hours of contact time. The 5 core areas are: understanding community development; communications and teamwork; working in the community; attitudes, values and diversity; communications and planning. Elective areas include youth; care-giving; drugs; children; sport and recreation.

    New Zealand:

    The NZQA has a 57 credit Level 3 National Certificate in Community Support Services (core competencies). The core areas include: consumer rights; wellbeing; safety; cultural differences; specific indigenous groups; advocacy; risk & violence; ethics; project support; group work. Elective choices include: medication; promoting participation; specific indigenous groups; facilitation; grief and trauma counseling.

    Scotland:

    The SQA National Certificate in Community Involvement is at NQF Level 3. It includes the following mandatory areas of learning: relationships and communication; task and project management; self awareness; investigation; diversity.

    Conclusion:

    Very few countries offer a Qualification with these competencies at the relevant NQF Level. However, many parallels can be drawn when looking at core/compulsory and elective learning areas. Obviously specific indigenous groups will be unique to some areas/countries. Many foreign qualifications were strongly inclined toward medical and/or care-giving, and some included learning on self-reflection or awareness of self. The South African Qualification has a much broader range of elective options than offered elsewhere, a range which can be expanded over time.

    No major adjustments to the South African Qualification are indicated as a result of the international comparability.

    The structure of the Qualification is unique to South Africa and is appropriate for the diverse needs of social services in this country as well as other neighbouring countries within the Southern African region. In short the Qualification is at least on par with international comparatives, and may well be best practice as it brings together many of the key elements present in more than one of the foreign qualifications.
