    ASSOCIATED ASSESSMENT CRITERIA 
    Associated Assessment Criteria for Exit Level Outcome 1:

    1.1 The well being of the horse is evaluated in relation to the "5 Freedoms" and communicated to the relevant roleplayer/s according to organisational procedures.
    1.2 The primary function of each body system is described in terms of their inter relationship.
  • Range of primary function include, but is not limited to: Oxygenation of tissue, supply of nutrients, removal of waste products, reproduction, digestion of food, locomotion and response to stimuli.
    1.3 The nature and treatment of common ailments, infectious disease and common disease in horses are explained according to standard equine treatment programmes.
    1.4 A treatment programme is implemented under the direction of a Veterinerian.
    1.5 Grazing/pasture is established and maintained to meet production requirements.

    Associated Assessment Criteria for Exit Level Outcome 2:

    2.1 Negative behavioural traits are identified and remedial techniques are implemented according to internationally accepted procedures.
    2.2 Quality of a horse's movement and attitude is evaluated in relation to the purpose of the horse.
    2.3 The use of the appropriate auxiliary tack is supervised according to the training technique.

    Associated Assessment Criteria for Exit Level Outcome 3:

    3.1 Equine facility work is planned, organised, monitored and evaluated according to work plan and organisational procedures.
    3.2 Schedules are developed for self and team to achieve objectives in terms of required quality and within set time frame.
    3.4 Actual expenses and income are monitored and controlled according to projected budget.

    Integrated Assessment:

    Integrated assessment at the level of the qualification provides an opportunity for learners to show that they are able to integrate concepts, ideas and actions across Unit Standards to achieve competence that is grounded and coherent in relation to the purpose of the qualification. Integrated assessment should show how already demonstrated competence in individual areas can be linked and applied for the achievement of a holistic outcome as described in the exit level outcomes.

    Integrated assessment will judge the quality of the observable performance, and also the quality of the thinking that lies behind it. Assessment tools must encourage learners to give an account of the thinking and decision-making that underpin their demonstrated performance. Some assessment practices will demand practical evidence while others may be more theoretical, depending on the type of outcomes to be assessed. The ratio between action and interpretation is not fixed, but varies according to the demands of the particular exit level outcome of the qualification.

    The assessments will comprise both continuous formative and summative modes of assessment. Formative assessment will employ a range of appropriate assessment tools, which will include self and peer assessments or tests. These formative assessments will lead to the summative assessment intervention, again using a range of suitable assessment tools.

    The primary aim of this qualification is to ensure that learners have a sound base of Equine Handling and Equestrian Practice to prepare them for further learning, whatever career path they may choose. Learners must be able to transfer generic skills across a number of different contexts, and apply them within a number of learning areas.

    A broad range of task-orientated and theoretical assessment tools may be used, with the distinction between practical knowledge and disciplinary knowledge maintained so that each takes its rightful place. 

  • INTERNATIONAL COMPARABILITY 
    International best practice is found in the International Group for Equestrian qualifications (IGEQ) which consists of 34 member countries and harmonises equestrian qualifications on an international scale for its member countries. This body ensures a high standard of equestrian training in member countries and issues international equestrian trainer's passports for use by people seeking employment in other countries.

    As a member country, South Africa offers training that is compliant with the IGEQ and therefore compares with the standard offered by the following member countries:

    Austria, Belgium, Bermuda, Canada, China, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Malawi, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and United Kingdom. This Further Education and Training Certificate was designed to comply with the IGEQ requirements and is therefore, in a general sense, similar to training offerings in the 34 member countries.

    For a more detailed comparison the following countries were considered in comparing the Further Education and Training Certificate in Equine Supervision with international equivalents:
  • New Zealand.
  • United Kingdom.
  • United States of America.
  • Australia.
  • Canada.

    New Zealand:

    The learning pathway catering for vocational training to meet the needs of the Equine Industry in New Zealand comprises qualifications from Level 2 to 5. The National Certificate in Equine, Level 4 with electives for Farriery (NQF Ref: 0217), Coaching (NQF Ref: 0656), Racehorse management (NQF Ref: 0653) and stable management (NQF Ref: 0794) equates with the Further Education and Training Certificate in Equine Supervision that offers similar electives, excluding racehorse management, as this is a dedicated qualification in the South African context.

    The following core unit standards from the New Zealand qualification indicate a close comparison with the core unit standards of the Further Education and Training Certificate:
  • ID 1652: Assess horses' conformation and action, Level 4, 6 credits.
  • ID 1653: Recognise lameness in horses, consult, and take action, Level 5, 8 credits.
  • ID 6580: Recognise and describe how to deal with an emergency situation involving horses, Level 3, 2 credits.
  • ID 14594: Describe anatomy, and identify signs of good health and ill health in horses, Level 2, 3 credits.

  • ID 6578: Care for stabled horses, Level 4, 8 credits.
  • ID 1988: Manage and/or supervise workplace operations, Level 5, 5 credits.
  • ID 17497: Lead a team or group to complete routine tasks within set timeframes, Level 3, 4 credits.

    United Kingdom:

    Qualifications from Level 2 to 5 represent the learning pathway for equine studies in the United Kingdom. The approach here is to offer dedicated qualifications for the specialization areas of transport (500/1570/9), coaching/instruction (100/3390/7) and management (500/1222/8). The Level 4 NVQ in Equine management compares closely with the Further Education and Training Certificate in Equine Supervision.

    Qualifying learner must prove competence in the 5 mandatory learning units and at least 4 learning units from one of the following areas of specialization:
  • Equine Business Management pathway.
  • Business/Yard Manager pathway.
  • Elite Groom pathway.
  • Coach/Instructor pathway.
  • Horse Racing pathway.
  • Breeding pathway.

    The South African Further Education and Training Certificate also caters for training and development in supervision, business, coaching/instruction and breeding (stud farm supervision). Horse racing is catered for in a dedicated qualification in the South African context and the competencies for elite grooms are catered for in the NQF Level 3 qualification. The Further Education and Training Certificate goes beyond these electives to include mounted policing, farriery and horse trail guiding.

    The competencies of the following mandatory units are incorporated in the South African unit standards either as specific outcomes or assessment criteria:
  • D/103/1587: Manage your own resources and professional development.
  • Y/103/7775: Manage information, knowledge and communications within the Land-based Sector.
  • R/103/7788: Plan and establish procedures for the management of horses.
  • Y/103/7713: Develop procedures for health and safety in the land-based workplace.
  • Y/103/7789: Use information to make decisions relevant to the Land-based Sector.

    The following units compare with the core unit standards associated with the Further Education and Training Certificate in Equine Supervision:
  • F/103/1596: Manage a budget.
  • F/103/7799: Establish and manage suitable grazing for equines.
  • M/103/7801: Help teams working in the Land-based Sector to achieve their objectives.
  • Y/103/7792: Manage the rearing of horses.
  • K/103/7800: Manage the availability of physical resources.
  • L/103/7790: Co-ordinate the process for breaking a young horse.

    United States of America:

    State University of New York is a public college that offers several Equine Studies Programs and students can earn either an Associate's or Bachelor's degree at the Equestrian Center. The Associate's and Bachelor's degrees will prepare students for a number of different careers that include the following commonalities with the Further Education and Training Certificate:
  • Horse Farm Management.
  • Breeding Farm Manager.
  • Riding Instructor.
  • Trainer.
  • Therapeutic Riding Instructor.
  • Stable Manager.
  • Farrier.
  • Feed Company Representative.

    The associate degree programs will prepare the student for immediate success in any equine related field. The Associate in Applied Science in Equine Studies will provide the students with the opportunity to learn about:
  • Equine health.
  • Equine behaviour.
  • Training, breeding.
  • Nutrition.
  • Forage management.

    There are additional courses that the students may choose from that include dressage and jumping, tackless training, reining, driving, eventing, and conventional and therapeutic riding instructor courses. Student who are pursuing an associate's degree are highly encouraged to select a specific field of study from one of the four fields that the college offers. The students can choose to specialize in Horse Farm Management, Performance Horse Training, Therapeutic Riding, and Thoroughbred Management. The depth and range of equine studies in USA, as illustrated by this example, exceeds the Further Education and Training Certificate level and is not comparable. However, there are common areas of study including, equine behaviour, equine health, nutrition and management.

    Australia:

    The Associate Diploma In Equine Studies (Course Code VAG009), Duration (approx)1500 hours is made up of 15 modules. The depth of study involved at this level exceeds that of the Further Education and Training Certificate, however, there are common elements in these qualifications that indicate equivalence. The modules that compare are listed below:
  • Horse Care I, II and III.
  • Equine Behaviour.
  • Animal Breeding.
  • Pasture Management.
  • Animal Anatomy and Physiology I.
  • Animal Health.
  • Animal Feed and Nutrition.
  • Farm Management.

    Canada:

    The Associate Diploma in Equine Studies as offered by the University of Guelph provides students with an opportunity to specialize in the management of horse enterprises. The program provides an excellent foundation for students who eventually wish to seek certification as qualified instructors in the Canadian Equestrian Federation. The program combines theory and hands-on practical courses that prepare graduates for the diversity of positions that exist in the horse industry.

    The following modules of the Associate Diploma in Equine Studies over 4 semesters compares with unit standards of the Further Education and Training Certificate comprise:
  • Horse Feeds and Feeding.
  • Communication Skills.
  • An Introduction to the Horse Industry.
  • Horse Care and Stable Duty.

  • Business Management.
  • Food Systems.
  • Horse Conformation and Lameness.
  • Human Resource Management.
  • Equine Conditioning.
  • Horse Health.
  • Equine Reproduction and Selection.

    The following learning programmes offered by international institutions and organisations were considered to inform the generation of the unit standards for the electives of the Further Education and Training Certificate: Equine Supervision:
  • Stable Management and Riding Proficiency offered by The Pony Club.
  • Mounted Policing offered by the Metro Police UK and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
  • Stud Management/Breeding offered by Massey, Kellogg`s.
  • Disabled Persons Riding offered by the Federation of Riding for the Disabled International.
  • Farriers offered by Farriers USA.
  • Welfare offered by the RSPCA.
  • Tourism Trail Riding offered by the International Tourism Federation, Ireland.

    Africa and SADC:

    No comparisons were found in Africa or SADC countries other than South Africa.

    Conclusion:

    It is evident from the foregoing that the Further Education and Training Certificate in Equine Supervision has many similarities with equivalent qualifications offered internationally. These similarities are evidenced in the specific outcomes and assessment criteria of the core South African unit standards covering health, welfare, physiology, conditioning and nutrition. Further similarities can be identified in the common management competencies such as budget management, team management and resource management. Some of the common areas of specialization that is the focus of the electives such as stable management, farriery, horse trail guiding coaching/instruction and stud farm management or breeding.
