    Recommendations and Exemplars for the design of:

    Learning / Curriculum
  • Learners should be encouraged to do their own development plans and develop training to fit with the plan.
  • A visit from a professional career guidance / counselling person would be an advantage.
  • Different ways that individuals may develop should be explored.

    Performance systems
  • Ongoing development of individuals within a department will ensure a turnover of staff, while at the same time ensuring a competent workforce.
  • Individuals should be growing rather than stagnating in a department where this is properly exercised.

    PROVIDERS CURRENTLY ACCREDITED TO OFFER THIS UNIT STANDARD: 
    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.
