PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION 
Purpose:

This Further Education and Training Certificate Qualification has been designed for people who are interested or involved in planning and implementing a variety of community development initiatives and processes across a variety of social and economic contexts. This Qualification forms part of a learning and career pathway in community development and provides access to further learning within the current regulatory framework.

This Qualification will facilitate the development of people who may be fulfilling the role of community development workers towards empowering communities to manage their own integrated, sustainable development and the alleviation of poverty. The Qualification ultimately aims to provide community development workers with the necessary skills and competencies to create a better life for all.

The learners credited with this Qualification would include people interested or involved in community development practice and/or initiatives in one or more of the following sectors:
  • Traditional, Local, Provincial and Central Government.
  • Social Development.
  • Youth Development.
  • Early Childhood Development (ECD).
  • Health.
  • Education (Formal, informal and non-formal).
  • Public Works.
  • Agriculture.
  • Water Affairs and Forestry.
  • Gender Equality and Women's Empowerment.
  • Victim Empowerment.
  • Conflict Management.
  • Civil Society Organisations (CBOs, NGOs and FBOs, Foundations and Trusts).
  • Corporate Social Responsibility.
  • Co-operatives.

    This Qualification will help learner improve their understanding of their role and responsibilities of community development workers and it will provide them with the knowledge, skills, attitudes to operate in an effective and efficient manner within the community arena.

    The successful learner will be able to:
  • Apply theories/approaches of community development in a specific context.
  • Facilitate a community initiative/process.
  • Build and maintain relationship in a specific community context.
  • Plan and manage an integrated community development project in a specific context.
  • Demonstrate understanding of the holistic and integrated regulatory framework impacting on community development in a specific context.

    Rationale:

    South Africa is a country where a large segment of its population is reliant on the services and support of the government, NGOs and other organisations. The community development sector potentially involves more than a million people working in it. It could be said that any project involving development practitioners would fall within this category.

    This Qualification is an important step forward in South Africa's developmental agenda as it will provide some of the fundamental building blocks of the public service and attempts to create a better life for all South African citizens, especially the poor and marginalised communities.

    The Qualification will begin to bridge the gap between the government and those in greatest need of the services provided by the state. As South Africa's developmental agenda evolves in line with the country's broader social and economic imperatives, so does the Qualification.

    This Qualification will be a valuable tool in the community development work environment and in helping the South Africa people enjoy a better life. In short it will help to:
  • Improve social equity and justice.
  • Enhance service delivery by all organisations.
  • Deepen the country's democracy.
  • Contribute to citizen education and development. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
  • Mathematical Literacy at NQF Level 3.
  • Communication at NQF Level 3.

    The above can be achieved either through a previous Qualification, or through the process of Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), which assesses workplace-based experiential learning.

    Recognition of Prior Learning:

    The Qualification can be achieved in whole or part through the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). Learners obtaining the whole Qualification through RPL and wishing to be declared competent are required to complete a practical assessment component for the purpose of such recognition. This implies that 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 components stipulated in the Qualification and by the Exit Level Outcomes.

    Learners submitting themselves for RPL should be thoroughly briefed prior to the assessment, and may be required to submit a Portfolio of Evidence (POE) in the prescribed format and/or undergo a workplace assessment 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 Exit Level Outcomes.

    Access to the Qualification:

    Access is open to all learners bearing in mind the learning assumed to be in place. 

  • RECOGNISE PREVIOUS LEARNING?

    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 
    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.

    This Qualification was compared with equivalent qualifications and/or courses from a range of countries. The international comparability study showed that many countries do have education, training and development organisations that offer learning interventions in the field of community development. These countries were Scotland, Australia, United Kingdom, Canada, United States of America, Alaska, Bangladesh, Bulgaria, Tanzania and New Zealand.

    Training Qualifications and Courses referred to in this international comparability were:

    Scotland:

    The two courses offered by Glasgow Council for the Voluntary Sector (GCVS) on Community Work, are compatible with this Qualification and parts of the Level 3 Qualification. All subject matter is covered in ours but possibly to different level of complexity.

    Course Title: Health and Social Care-Level 3:

    Mandatory:
  • Promote effective communication for and about individuals.
  • Promote, monitor and maintain health, safety and security in the working environment.

    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. Many foreign qualifications are strongly inclined toward medical and/or care-giving such as Social work, and some included learning on self-reflection or awareness of self. The proposed South African Qualification has a much broader range of elective options than offered elsewhere, a range which can be expanded over time.

    The structure of the proposed Qualification is unique to South Africa and is appropriate for the unique needs of social services in this country as well as other neighbouring countries within the Southern Africa 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.

    PROVIDERS CURRENTLY ACCREDITED TO OFFER THESE LEARNING PROGRAMMES: 
    This information shows the current accreditations (i.e. those not past their accreditation end dates), and is the most complete record available to SAQA as of today. Some Primary or Delegated Quality Assurance Functionaries have a lag in their recording systems for provider accreditation, in turn leading to a lag in notifying SAQA of all the providers that they have accredited to offer qualifications and unit standards, as well as any extensions to accreditation end dates. The relevant Primary or Delegated Quality Assurance Functionary should be notified if a record appears to be missing from here.
