PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION 
Purpose of the qualification:

The purpose of this qualification is to build a foundational entry into the field of Computer Sciences and Information Technology, specifically into the field of Systems Support, covering basic knowledge needed for further study in the field of Systems Support at Higher Education Levels.

The qualification can be acquired in the traditional way of formal study as well as in the workplace, through learnerships. Acquiring the qualification through learnerships has the potential of addressing the problems of the past, where newly qualified people getting into the industry struggled to get employment, because they were required to have practical experience. The workplace experience can now be gained while acquiring the qualification through the various learnership schemes that are planning to use this qualification.

A Qualifying learner at this level will be a well-rounded entry-level Systems Support professional with a good fundamental knowledge of the Information Technology field, coupled with interpersonal and business skills, allowing for specialisation in one of the following Systems Support fields:
  • Hardware and Infrastructure Support for Personal Computers
  • Hardware and Infrastructure Support for Office Products
  • Data Communications and Networking
  • (and any new field not specified yet, allowing for new specialisations in this area)

    The qualification is designed to:
  • Provide learners with an entry level for further study in Information Technology and related fields, as well as for initial employment in the computer industry.
  • Allow many of the listed unit standards to be used in Learnership Schemes in the Information Systems and Technology sector, as well as other sectors where Information Technology is a key requirement.
  • Provide a foundational qualification for people who are pursuing a career in the computer industry, or related fields. People with this qualification have an introductory level of understanding about computer industry concepts and/or are able to work in areas of Information Technology with little technical complexity. Examples of the areas covered are entry-level hardware, software, electronics and network support, on mainly (but not limited to) desktop and hand-held devices and local area networks.
  • Allow the credits achieved in the National Certificates in Information Technology (Level 2 & 3) to be used as foundation (i.e. learning assumed to be in place) for the requirements of this qualification.
  • Have a flexible structure to allow for changing requirements in the computer industry, and to allow providers to create learning programmes with a predominantly Information Technology Support component but tailored to meet the local, national or international needs.

    Rationale of the qualification:

    This qualification has been formulated such that it reflects the workplace-based needs of the Information Technology Industry as expressed by its stakeholders.
    The input has been used to ensure that the qualification provides the learner with accessibility to be employed within the IT Industry.

    The introduction of national qualifications in Information Technology based on unit standards will allow learners to qualify for a national qualification by accumulating the required credits via short learning programmes or workplace practical experience or both. It also allows learners to achieve the qualifications through recognition of prior learning and/or learnerships schemes, overcoming past barriers in the methods of achieving formal qualifications.

    Academically this National Certificate is intended to be an entry-level qualification in the area of Systems Support. The qualification builds on knowledge areas covered in National Certificates and short learning programmes at NQF level 2 to 4, and it facilitates entry into the Systems Support field. It aims to enhance readiness for further study in Information Technology and related fields at the Further Education level, provides a pathway into further study at Higher Education level, as well as providing for initial employment in the computer industry.

    One of the most important needs for this qualification is to provide for the recognition of prior learning. There are currently no unit standards based registered qualifications in the Systems Support area. However, hardware and networks are being installed, maintained and upgraded on a daily basis in a number of different industry sectors. People with workplace experience in the areas covered by this qualification will now be allowed to request assessment and get recognition for prior learning.

    The qualification provides the learner with the flexibility to articulate in the IT environment with a wide variety of specialisation options and articulation within the Telecommunications, Information Technology and Electronic Industries and other industries where IT is a key component, like the Financial Services Industry. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    It is assumed that the learner is competent in skills gained at the further education and training band, with exposure to computing as an advantage, but not a requirement. A learning assumption of this qualification is foundational skills in English and Mathematics at NQF level 3. Further learning assumed is the ability to use a personal computer competently, and competence in the unit standard, "Participate in formal meetings", NQF Level 2 (ID 14911).

    The assumed learning can be acquired in the traditional way of formal study as well as in the workplace. Acquiring the competencies in a workplace (either via formal learnerships or normal on-the-job training) has the potential of addressing the problems of the past, where formal qualifications were only obtainable by way of formal study.

    Recognition of prior learning (RPL)

    Many of the competencies used in the Information Technology profession has traditionally been acquired through short courses and on-the-job training, which did not provide formal recognition of the knowledge and skills acquired. These competencies are still today viewed by most industries as invaluable, with the sad reality that there is no formal recognition. The nature of the Information Technology field means that competence is developed experientially, therefore the assessment processes should recognise experience versus theoretical knowledge. Recognition of prior learning will now allow people with these valuable competencies to be assessed and recognised formally.

    Any learner wishing to be assessed may arrange to do so without having to attend further education or training. For recognition of prior learning the learner will be required to submit a portfolio of evidence of relevant experience, in a prescribed format, to be assessed for formal recognition. The assessor and learner will decide jointly on the most appropriate assessment procedures, subject to the assessment rules of the relevant ETQA. Learning assumed to be in place must be assessed by the assessor prior to any assessment relating to this qualification.

    In addition to the above, unit standards will be utilised to provide depth of specification of the outcomes ranges and the assessment criteria and processes.

    Furthermore, the assessment process should also cover the following generic components:
  • Measure the quality of the observed practical performance as well as the theory and underpinning knowledge behind it;
  • Use methods that are varied to allow the learner to display thinking and decision making in the demonstration of practical performance;
  • Maintain a balance between practical performance and theoretical assessment methods to ensure each is measured in accordance with the level of the qualification; and
  • Ensure that the relationship between practical and theoretical is not fixed but varies according to the outcomes being assessed.


    Assessment of Critical Cross-field Outcomes:

    To ensure applicability of Fundamental and Critical Cross-field Outcomes this should be assessed as part of Core and Elective assessments.


    Integrated Assessment:

    Development of the competencies may be through a combination of formal and informal learning, self-learning, training programmes and work-based application.
    The practical, applied, foundational and reflexive competencies demonstrated for the group of assessment criteria in this qualification, must prove that the whole competence is more than the sum of the parts of the competencies.
    Providers should conduct diagnostic and formative assessment. Formative, continuous and diagnostic assessments should also take place in the work place, if applicable. The learner should also be able to assess him or herself and determine readiness for a summative assessment against this qualification.

    During integrated assessments the assessor should make use of formative and summative assessment methods and should assess combinations of practical, applied, foundational and reflexive competencies. Input to completing the Integrated Assessment typically makes use of combinations of the following assessment methods:
    1. Time-constrained written examinations
    2. Coursework Evaluations
    3. Continuous Evaluation
    4. Practical Evaluation
    5. Evaluation of Portfolios of Evidence

  • Application of a range of IT technical skills and knowledge to meet user needs, within designated responsibilities
  • Competence in dealing directly with customer staff.
  • Understand the structure of a typical systems support teams, knowing the different roles and knowing when to ask for assistance in performing the above tasks.


    Level Description of the qualification:

    The knowledge areas listed in the notes section of this qualification display competence that are complex and non-routine, which is appropriate at this level. It involves the application of knowledge and skills in a limited range of varied work activities, performed in a wide variety of contexts. Some level of responsibility and autonomy is allowed, where control or guidance of others is often required, although complete responsibility is assumed for the quantity and quality of the individuals own outputs. Collaboration with others, perhaps through membership of a work group or team, may often be a requirement.

    This also supports the SAQA approved level descriptors at this level, as listed below:

    Foundational Competence:
  • Possession of wide-ranging scholastic/technical skills.
  • Possession of a broad knowledge base incorporating some theoretical concepts.
  • Demonstrate the ability to access, analyse and evaluate information independently.
  • Employ a range of responses to well defined but often unfamiliar or unpredictable problems.

    Progression is manifested by the change from routine responses at level 3 to generation of responses at level 4.

    Practical Competence:
  • Operate in a variety of familiar and unfamiliar contexts under broad guidance and evaluation.
  • Select from a considerable choice of procedures.
  • Give presentations to an audience.

    There is evidence of progression in terms of the range of skills, choice of actions and the ability to present information to others.

    Reflexive Competence:
  • Complete responsibility for quantity and quality of output.
  • Possible responsibility for the quantity and quality of output of others.

    Progression is marked by a significant increase in responsibility for individual outputs and the need to interact with others. At level 4, the learner can assume leadership roles of a limited nature.

    Qualification Naming and Specialisation Description:

    The Information Technology sub-field has been broken into various domains, of which Systems Support is one. Qualification names will be linked to these domains, with specialisation descriptions attached to the qualification certification document being produced. The reason for this is firstly to reduce the number of qualifications needed to be registered to a manageable level, and secondly to have the qualification linked to the typical structure of the Information Technology industry. Finally we want to have the qualification certification document to reflect fields of specialisation, for unit standards that has been achieved within listed fields of specialisation. These specialisation fields are defined as part of the elective unit standards for the qualification. This will allow flexibility in future to add new specialisation fields without having to redefine the whole qualification. This is very important to the IT industry which is a very dynamic and fast changing industry.

    The naming of this qualification is as follows:
    National Certificate in Information Technology: Technical Support - (NQF level 4),

    Specialising in one or more of the following fields:
  • Hardware and Infrastructure Support for Personal Computers
  • Hardware and Infrastructure Support for Office Products
  • Data Communications and Network Support
  • (and any new field not specified yet, allowing for new specialisations in this area)

    A minimum of 20 credits from any one specialisation field is needed. The specialisation field(s) will be printed on the qualification certification documentation.
