Further Education and Training Certificate Occupationally-Directed Education Training and Development Practices (NQF 4)

Purpose of Qualification

This qualification is designed for those who provide training in the workplace or for those who have been practising within this field, but without formal recognition. Upon completion of this qualification, students will be able to prepare for and facilitate learning, provide student support, carry out administration related to learning and contribute to Human Resource Management practices. This is an entry-level qualification, and the first in a series which leads to levels 5 and 6 qualifications for those who want to enter the field of Education, Training and Development (ETD). Students of this qualification will have the opportunity to build on this qualification via the certificate or diploma in ODETDP at level 5. This qualification provides a means to give recognition to practitioners at an entry level, thus making it possible for practitioners to increase their employment prospects, and at the same time provides a means whereby organisations can appoint practitioners in line with proven competencies. EDT is also a priority area within the South African context and is supported by legislation, national policies and strategies. In order to meet the ETD requirements of the workplace, within the context of a quality assured environment and processes, it is important to be able to identify and recognise competent ETD practitioners at various levels.
