|PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION|
This qualification is designed to empower people who are already working, or who intend to work, in any setting relevant to community development. It provides learners with the competencies which they need to act as change agents and so add value in the practice of community development. Learners acquiring this qualification will develop the knowledge and skills to operate effectively in the community development environment, in support of individuals and organisations (both emerging and existing) in achieving their community development goals and objectives. Learners will be enabled to establish and maintain partnerships through active networking and lobbying. Learners will gain the competencies needed to identify community needs while working with communities and households, to identify and plan community projects for social change, to improve the quality of life of communities in an integrated and sustainable manner and to mobilise resources.
The competencies embedded in the set of unit standards that make up this qualification will open up employment opportunities for qualifying learners, in public sector, in non-profit organisations and in the private sector in the field of community development. The acquired competencies will assist the qualifying learner to contribute to the improvement of the quality of life of people as well as to the eradication of poverty.
This qualification also offers opportunities to those who have worked in the community development sector for years, but who have as yet no formal qualifications. It can be used as a bridging course to those who are already working, but who do not currently meet the minimum requirements to enter higher education and occupationally based qualifications or programmes. The qualification will therefore prepare learners for a career in the community development field, and will also create an opportunity for further learning and vertical progression to the Bachelor of Community Development, NQF Level 8.
Learners accredited with this Qualification will be able to:
Learners will be able to integrate generic community development knowledge and skills, in an effective manner, to promote ethical and professional community development practice. The range of electives in the qualification will allow the learner to gain specialist knowledge relating to community development careers in one of the following sectors:
Community Development is multidisciplinary in nature. It plays an integral part in promoting social inclusion and coherence for communities by empowering them to find sustainable solutions to their challenges.
People working with and in communities require relevant knowledge and skills to operate effectively; hence the need for the qualification. This qualification is designed to equip the learner with the tools to address the challenges of communities in a holistic and integrative manner. It provides an alternative route to the traditional approach of completing a Bachelors Degree as an initial qualification by offering a certificate as a first qualification which then leads to Bachelor Degree study. This is particularly useful to those who do not obtain admission to Bachelor Degree study with their National Senior Certificate and for those who cannot afford to study full time for four years without being employed. This qualification can be offered in a formal education setting as well as through occupationally directed workplace training for learners already employed in the community development sector. It contributes towards standardisation of the operations of people working in the community development sector.
|LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING|
|Learners are assumed to be competent in:
Recognition of Prior Learning:
The Qualification can be achieved in whole or part through the Recognition of Prior Learning. Learners obtaining the whole Qualification through Recognition of Prior Learning and wishing to be declared competent are required to complete an assessment 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 Specific Outcomes of the individual Unit Standards as listed in the Fundamental, Core and Elective Components and in the Exit Level Outcomes of the Qualification.
Learners submitting themselves for Recognition of Prior Learning should be thoroughly briefed prior to the assessment, which may take a number of forms or a combination of forms such as, for example:

|The aim of the comparability study was to examine qualifications and unit standards offered in other countries to ensure that the South African qualification is comparable to those qualifications and unit standards in terms of competencies developed and the standard of performance demanded of graduating learners. The comparability exercise focused on formal courses and short courses offered by accredited institutions and organisations which include amongst others universities, private learning institutions in both developing and developed nations to determine similarities and differences with the South African community development qualification.
Countries whose qualification and courses were looked at included amongst others, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, Australia, United States of America, United Kingdom, Ireland, Scotland and India. The findings show that countries such as Canada, Ireland and the United Kingdom are leaders in qualifications in the field of community development with Canada and Ireland having the best practice in community development.
The qualifications and training offered on the African continent, especially in the SADC region and with countries that face similar social, economic, technological challenges as South Africa, e.g. Kenya, Tanzania, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Nigeria and Zambia were also looked at.

The following is a brief description of each of the five main academic streams:
> This is a core stream of the proposed award. An understanding of the community will have a significant impact on the students as they begin their study of Community Development. Through the modules offered within this stream students are introduced to the theoretical principals that underpin the concept of community and will begin an exploration into the concept and role of community in the context of a changing Irish society. Students will also demonstrate knowledge of major current social, economic and political issues shaping community education, work policies and practices and examines the processes of urbanisation and globalisation. New forms of community are explored and compared to their impact on the social organisation in the community.
> This stream is designed to enable students to develop key competencies which are required for successful study at third level as well as facilitating an understanding of processes in communication as an individual and within certain group settings. Students learn how to communicate effectively in writing, in presentations, orally and with non-verbal communication.
> This stream considers community education in various settings. It explores the conceptual models of community education and their implications for practice while drawing on theoretical and applied practice examples. Additionally, it also includes a critical overview of the contemporary political and cultural context underpinning community education. Students are also encouraged to critically reflect on their experiences of formal and informal learning.
> The aim of this stream is to introduce student to social administration, social policy and planning considerations. Some theoretical principals will be emphasised that allow students to understand the development, structure and functioning of social policy at local and national levels. With reference to vulnerable groups in the community, students are made aware of the agents of policy in Ireland, such as social inclusion, that have emerged in the community context.
> Communication skills are highly valued in the modern day work environment. This stream will enable the student to understand the practical and real-life activity of communication. Beginning with an introduction to basic communication models, this module explores each of the different skills involved in communicating effectively both as an individual and within certain group settings.
> The main aim of this stream is to equip students with knowledge regarding groups and teams in a workplace and community context. The student will learn how theories regarding group processes affect the environmental context and group development. Students learn how to identify various roles which participants perform in groups and will also learn how to respond to group conflict.
> Working in small groups in a partnership with community development agencies, students are expected to complete a relevant piece of work that will encourage them to use learning from Group Dynamics and other similar modules. By utilising a knowledge base consistent with that of the community development profession, students will search and map services available in a particular community and develop a comprehensive knowledge of community groups and services. In addition, students will be expected to appraise the role and effectiveness of particular services in relation to community based interventions or in relation to the promotion of health issues within the community.

There are no community development qualifications at tertiary level at any Brazilian university. All community development initiatives in Brazil are led by students from countries such as the United States of America, Canada and the United Kingdom as part of their internships or for the practical components of their degrees such as engineering and technology. They assist in improving the local infrastructure, for example, improving drainage, home and school renovations and ecology for eco-tourism, or education programmes for disadvantaged children and adults.
Most African countries offer short courses for Community Development workers that are run either by Government or by international providers. Countries include Kenya, Tanzania, Nigeria, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Mauritius. No qualifications and no courses are offered in these countries except in Zambia and Zimbabwe which offer bachelor degree courses. It was difficult to compare with the South African qualification due to the difference in the level of study. However, in Kenya, there is a certificate course in Community Development offered.
Kenya Institute of Social Work and Community Development:
Kenya Institute of Social Work and Community Development (KISWCD) is a community-focused development and training institution without any governmental, religious or political affiliation. KISWCD was initiated in 1997 as a private company limited by guarantee. It was registered by the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology as a training institution.

Community Development Training Institute:
Community Development Training Institute (CDTI) was established in 1963 with the aim of developing and promoting capacities of the people to manage their development processes; building and strengthening capacities of various actors in the field of Community Development, and improving the delivery systems of extension workers. In response to the increasing demand of Community Development experts in various institutions in the public and private sector, especially non-government institutions, the Community Development Training Institute based at Tengeru near Arusha offers Bachelor of Arts degrees in Community Development in three main areas and no details of the curriculum are available from the source:
South African comparison:
Although the international courses are offered as Diplomas and Certificates at NQF Levels 5 and 6, the National Certificate: Community Development, NQF Level 5 compares favourably with them in terms of the competencies and knowledge that are developed. Most of the international courses have a work-based placement component as does the National Certificate: Community Development, NQF Level 5. A major difference is the duration of study with many international offerings being two-year qualifications.
