PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION 
Purpose:

A person acquiring this qualification will be able to manage first line managers in an organisational entity. First line managers may include team leaders, supervisors, junior managers, section heads and foremen. The focus of this qualification is to enable learners to develop competence in a range of knowledge, skills, attitudes and values including:
  • Initiating, developing, implementing and evaluating operational strategies, projects and action plans, and where appropriate, recommending change within teams and/or the unit so as to improve the effectiveness of the unit.
  • Monitoring and measuring performance and applying continuous or innovative improvement interventions in the unit in order to attain its desired outcomes, including customer satisfaction, and thereby contributing towards the achievement of the objectives and vision of the entity.
  • Leading a team of first line managers, by capitalising on the talents of team members and promoting synergistic interaction between individuals and teams, to enhance individual, team and unit effectiveness in order to achieve the goals of the entity.
  • Building relationships using communication processes both vertically and horizontally within the unit, with superiors and with stakeholders across the value chain to ensure the achievement of intended outcomes.
  • Applying the principles of risk, financial and knowledge management and business ethics within internal and external regulatory frameworks in order to ensure the effectiveness and sustainability of the unit.
  • Enhancing the development of teams and team members through facilitating the acquisition of skills, coaching, providing career direction, and capitalising on diversity in the unit.

    The skills, knowledge and understanding demonstrated within this qualification are essential for the creation of a talent pool of experienced and effective middle managers that represents the demographics of the South African society. This qualification will create a leadership cadre for the South African society throughout multiple industries and sectors both private and public.

    Rationale:

    The National Certificate: Generic Management, NQF Level 5 forms part of a learning pathway of management qualifications across various sectors and industries. It is specifically designed to develop management competencies required by learners in any occupation, particularly those who manage first line managers. The qualification builds on the FETC: Generic Management and further develops the key concepts, principles and practices of management that will enable learners to lead, manage, organise and control first line managers and team leaders. The learners will typically be managers who have other junior managers or team leaders reporting to them. In smaller organisations or entities, the managers could primarily be responsible for managing the supervisors and staff within their section, division or business unit.

    The scope of generic management covers five domains: leadership, managing the environment, managing relations, managing knowledge and the practice of management. This qualification addresses each of these domains with generic competencies, so that it allows learning programmes to be contextualised for specific sectors and industries. It reflects a similar design to the FETC: Generic Management, in that it provides opportunities for learners to transfer between various specialisations within management. This leads to the strengthening of management competencies and will enable managers at this level to manage successfully systems, processes, resources, managers and teams in their various occupations and contexts.

    This qualification is further intended to empower learners to acquire the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values required to operate confidently as individuals in South African communities and to respond to the challenging economic environment and constantly changing world of work. Ultimately, this qualification is aimed at improving the effectiveness and leadership abilities of middle managers in various occupations in South Africa, in private and public business entities as well as non-governmental organisations. For this reason, the word 'entity' includes a company, business unit, public institution, small business or non-profit organisation.

Integrated assessment must evaluate the quality of competence attained by the learner.

    The assessment strategies used must ensure that that all Specific Outcomes, Essential Embedded Knowledge and Critical Cross-Field Outcomes are assessed. The assessment of the Critical Cross-Field Outcomes should be integrated with the assessment of the Specific Outcomes.

    The learner who has provided the required evidence for all the exit level outcomes of the qualification will be assessed as competent and awarded the qualification. This will ensure that learning and competence are not achieved only in the building blocks of the unit standards but also in the integration and application of the fundamental, core and elective building blocks to a particular context, i.e. the exit level outcomes. 

  • INTERNATIONAL COMPARABILITY 
    This National Certificate: Generic Management qualification at NQF Level 5 is primarily about managing junior managers in a business unit. The qualification broadly addresses a broad range of competencies including monitoring and measuring the performance of junior managers, leading and managing a team, and enhancing the development of teams and team members. Hence, the focus of this qualification is on showing leadership in the management of people.

    This qualification is comparability to a variety of management qualifications. In many countries the universities that offer management courses have a first degree as an entry level qualification, with the possibility of the learner, in many cases, being able to pursue a Masters in Business Administration. This Generic Management qualification is a certificate an hence limited in terms of the extent of the competencies it can offer as compared to many degree offerings in management. However, the qualification compares favourably with what many universities and colleges call Executive Development Programmes. These constitute a series of high level short courses, designed to meet the needs of the individual who will be managing junior managers.

    United Kingdom:

    The School of Management of Cranfield University in the United Kingdom offers a series of two to three week intensive short courses that cover a number of competencies offered by this qualification. The Developing General Management Potential programme is designed to accelerate the early development of promising managerial careers and allows a manager to develop his/her visibility, credibility and maturity. The manager will make a wider business contribution through personal development and the acquisition of managerial knowledge. The programme has an unconventional design with a strong personal development focus. Managerial knowledge is translated into action through a powerful development process emphasising personal contribution, style and impact.

    The programme challenges the manager to:
  • Realise her/his own organisational leadership capability and influence.
  • Add managerial value without formal authority and power.

    Cranfield University also offers a series of short courses under 'leadership', which covers most of the leadership and people management competencies of this qualification. The course explores the many diverse issues that need to be addressed so that the manager can be an effective and successful leader. The personal awareness programmes assist one in understanding own leadership style, drivers, successes and the challenges one faces.

    The management development programmes stimulate the learner to think about his/her contribution as a strategic leader. In addition the course assists the learner to lead and influence teams, lead through change and understand organisational politics to aid her/his your leadership contribution.

    Some of the short courses that constitute the Leadership module are:
  • High Performance Leadership (duration 10 days full-time):
    > It provides a unique, sustainable pathway to high performance and also provides a vision and motivation for others.
  • The Director as Strategic Leader (duration 5 days full-time):
    > It addresses the question of an effective leader by understanding strategic leadership and one's role in the process.

    The university also runs a series of short courses on strategy which is a useful comparison for the competencies in this qualification.

    Ashridge Business School in the United Kingdom has a 5-day leadership programme called the Ashridge Leadership Process Fact File. It is a blend of small group development activities and one-to-one leadership coaching and delivers real impact and lasting change for the learner and her/his organisation.

    Some of the specific competencies that a learner will acquire during the course are:
  • Different leadership styles and an action plan to help apply them to the workplace.
  • Enhanced self awareness and confidence to meet the challenges of leadership and increased responsibility.
  • More effective thinking skills.
  • New personal and organisational visions and goals.
  • Techniques for leading high performance teams.
  • Invaluable insights into lifestyle planning.

    Ashridge also runs another programme that covers the key competencies of managing relationships. The course is entitled 'Interpersonal skills for managing relationships'.

    Leaders and executives in contemporary society are increasingly recognising that in addition to their technical and professional capability, their ability to establish, develop and create effective and lasting relationships is critical to long-term business success. This programme focuses on key communication, interpersonal and social skills-in today's parlance known as 'emotional intelligence'.

    Communication, intrapersonal awareness and interpersonal skills are the bedrock for success in relationship management. This programme will help the learner understand own communication and interpersonal style and skills, and will enable her/him to raise their self-awareness and confidence for managing relationships at work more effectively.

    This practical and experiential workshop is designed to introduce the learner to a range of skills, techniques and approaches that will ensure effective communication.

    Insead, which has campuses in Europe (Paris) and Singapore, offers several management programmes of a short duration. The following is a brief comparison of the their programmes. They offer an Advanced Management Programme, an International Executive Programme and a Management Acceleration Programme. From the description of the programmes it would seem that some of the competencies of the National Certificate: Generic Management (NQF Level 5) are similar to those in the Management Acceleration Programme, with the International Executive Programme reflecting more or less the competencies of the NQF Level 6 in Generic Management, a qualification currently under construction.

    The Management Acceleration Programme (MAP) is for those who are in their early stages of their careers as managers, with approximately five years of work experience. The programme is to help high-potential executives and future leaders move up the chain of authority and responsibility.

    Acting as a navigation tool for early career high-potential executives, MAP equips them with a general management perspective. It broadens their general business knowledge, deepens competence in key functional disciplines and expands leadership skills through coaching. Framed by the crucial concept of value-based management, participants learn how to create-and capture-value while forging a community with international like-minded high potentials.

    Key benefits:
  • Acquire a thorough knowledge of all the major management disciplines, leading to greater awareness of how the organisation operates and resulting in better decision-making skills.
  • Test newly-learned skills by "running the business" in a real-life simulation.
  • Increase and accelerate career potential while broadening perspectives to take on greater responsibilities in the future.
  • Build their competences in managing and leading people and strategy.

    Insead also offers a number of Leadership Programmes whose competencies are reflected in the National Certificate: Generic Management at NQF Level 5. Some of the components of the Leadership Programme are:
  • Consulting and Coaching for Change-Creating reflective change agents. The purpose is to build the psychoanalytical dimension into organisational change initiatives or coaching and gain new approaches to resolving issues of human behaviour.
  • The Leadership Transition: Becoming a leader is within your reach. The purpose is to personalise leadership style to influence and inspire those one leads as a senior manager.
  • Leadership for Creativity: Build high performance organisations. The purpose is to address the challenges senior leaders face and to understand the importance of emotional intelligence, creativity and innovation to successful leadership.
  • Learning to Lead: The transition from "Doing" to "Getting it done" through others. The purpose is to develop people skills and learn how to manage your own team of subordinates as you progress from an individual contributor to a new manager.

    Below is an expansion of just two of several Leadership short courses:

    Leadership for creativity:
  • Any senior executive wanting to create or manage an effective organisation needs to understand the dynamics of leadership, creativity, teams, and organisational culture. The understanding of individual psychology, creative process, group dynamics and the social and environmental context in which organisations are operating is more relevant than ever before given the increased pace of change in our global world.

    Key Benefits:
  • Understand the importance of emotional intelligence and what makes for successful leadership in a global world.
  • Manage for creativity and innovation.
  • Create high performance teams and high performance organisations 4 day.

    Leadership in Transformation:
  • The transition from being a great individual contributor to being a leader of other individual contributors is one of the most important and challenging steps in one's career.

    This leadership development programme is designed to help participants understand the nature of this transition and develop the people skills that are often the difference between longer term career success and failure.

    It is specifically relevant for the new managers, preparing them before they take on the new roles or assisting them very soon after they take up the challenge.

    Key Benefits:
  • Gain clear insights into personal people management skills.
  • Build frameworks for motivating people and keeping their behavior and performance on track.
  • Improve capacity for new managers to become effective future leaders.

    The Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM), based in the United Kingdom, is Europe's largest awarding body for leadership and management qualifications. It is also a professional membership body for leaders and managers-providing a wide range of career support services to members.

    ILM qualifications are practically based, designed to complement the individual's role at work. Aligned to the UK's National Qualifications Framework (NQF), ILM qualifications begin at Level 2 and continue right up to Level 7. Other specialist qualifications cover skills in volunteer management, business start-up, coaching, and personnel management. All ILM qualifications have been accredited by the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA).

    The ILM offers the following Generic Management Qualifications:
  • Level 2 Introductory Certificate in Team Leading.
  • Level 2 Certificate in Team Leading.
  • Level 3 Introductory Certificate in First Line Management.
  • Level 3 Certificate in First Line Management.
  • Level 5 Introductory Diploma in Management.
  • Level 5 (new NQF) Diploma in Management.
  • Level 7 (new NQF) Introductory Executive Diploma in Management.
  • Level 7 (new NQF) Executive Diploma in Management.

    The Generic Management at Level 5 approximates to the Level 5 Introductory Diploma in Management.

    The ILM Level 5 (new NQF) Diploma in Management qualifications are for those people who are likely to be either practising or aspiring middle managers, particularly those who are already in post but have had little or no formal training. They may work in factories and offices, in hospitals, in call centres, on building sites, in leisure centres, in the armed services and in the voluntary sector. Wherever people and resources are employed, middle managers with an ILM Level 5 (new NQF) Diploma qualification ensure that they are employed effectively.

    Both qualifications are designed to improve performance in the organisation through their strong focus on your specific job role. These highly practical programmes can generate significant payback for the employer in terms of cost savings and quality improvements in the workplace. They may also have internal short training sessions in the organisation which can be incorporated into the programme structure.

    Australia:

    Monash University in Australia has a similar programme called Executive Certificate in Management. This course has been designed for experienced managers without a first degree to enable them to obtain an introductory qualification in management. The course content focuses on an appreciation of the management role and the crucial contribution that managers make to organisational effectiveness. The course examines major theories and concepts concerning the behaviour and performance of individuals and groups in organisations. Moreover, it explores the importance of self-awareness, learning and learning styles, self-management and specific managerial competencies.

    Course structure:
  • Students must complete two core units (12 points):
    > Managing people and organisations.
    > Managerial effectiveness.
  • Students must complete two elective units (12 points) from 9000-level units taught by the Department of Management.

    India:

    The Indian School of Business (ISB), one of the top performing business schools in the world, like most other providers does not have structured certificates or diplomas like those in South Africa, in management. Their minimal qualification is a undergraduate degree. However, like most of these institutions the Centre for Executive Education at the ISB provides a range of short courses for managers who are already employed but who wish to move up the management chain. These short courses take place all the time. There is no indication if these short courses are part of a structured programme. The courses do revolve around, inter alia, Strategic Thinking, Leadership Skills, Marketing Strategies and Strategic Talent Management.

    Uganda:

    In a similar vein, Makerere University in Uganda offers Executive Development Programmes for the public. The Division exists to develop and equip participants from different organisations with creative and imaginative skills to attack business challenges in the environment and enable organisations to take on competition. The Division conducts Off-the-Shelf,Tailor Made (In-house) training programmes, Research and Consultancy Extension services that are intended to enhance skills and improve business performance.

    Off-the-shelf training programmes include the following. There is no indication that these are part of a structured programme. Only those aspects that resonate with the competencies in the National Certificate: Generic Management at NQF Level 5 have been selected:
  • Managing the Operations of Micro-Finance Institutions.
  • Capital Markets Operations.
  • Commercial Bank Portfolio Management.
  • Financial Management.
  • Managing Budgets.
  • Marketing for Financial Institutions.
  • Corporate Governance.
  • Re-engineering the Organisation.
  • Change Management.
  • The Legal Business Concept.
  • Market & Marketing Research.
  • Effective Management of Retail Businesses.
  • Focus on Management for Young Executives.
  • Effective Communication & Negotiation Skills.
  • Effective Human Resource Management.
  • Customer Care Service.
  • Effective Management Skills.
  • Effective Leadership Skills for Senior Executives.
  • Training of Trainers.
  • Results Oriented Management.
  • Strategic Planning & Management.
  • Project Planning & Management I.
  • Performance Appraisal.

    However, Makerere University also offers certificates and diplomas - similar to the ones in South Africa - in the Faculty of Management. Details of two programmes-the Certificate and Diploma in Business Administration - are available and these qualifications resemble the South African versions in the sense that the certificate is over a one-year period and the diploma over a two-year period. The Faculty of Management offers the following qualifications related to generic management:
  • Diploma in Human Resource Management.
  • Diploma in Entrepreneurship and Small Business Management.
  • Diploma in Local Government Administration Management.
  • Diploma in Local Government Finance Management.
  • Certificate in Business Administration.

    It would seem from the website of the University of Ghana that the minimum qualification at its Business School is a degree. Thereafter the graduate can pursue higher qualifications in management.

    In conclusion, most universities investigated in the course of this exercise do not offer certificates and diplomas in the field of management-their minimum is a first degree. However, some universities do offer certificates and diplomas. In terms of management qualifications, there also seems to be a focus on the Masters in Business Administration and the first degree is seen as a stepping stone towards that qualification. In any case, many of the universities offer Executive Development Programmes for those who are already employed - and this qualification is targeting mainly that category. Seen from that point of view this qualification has much more content and structure than all the others that formed part of this study. This qualification brings together most of the applied competencies in the field of management in a very structured way and paves the way for the generation of many elective streams.

    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.
