48871  National First Degree: Occupationally Directed Education, Training and Development Practices  Level 6  Level TBA: Pre-2009 was L6  360   

PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION 
Practitioners who have achieved this qualification will have achieved a deep disciplinary or occupational base in support of ETD practice. This will further advance their competence in selected ETD roles and build a basis for specialised learning. They will be capable of making significant contributions to structured and targeted skills development within or across organisations, and at sectoral or national level.

The qualification will allow practitioners to advance to a Level 8 qualification in Occupation-Directed ETD. It also provides them with credits, which they can carry across towards earning any other ETD qualification at the same level. 

LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
This is an additional or complementary qualification, as practitioners are assumed to have a prior qualification (or equivalent competence) in an occupational field before applying to be assessed for this qualification. The competence expressed in the level 5 diploma counts as the first 240 credits of the level 6-degree, and may be achieved either prior to or during attainment of the degree.


Recognition of prior learning

This qualification may be achieved in part or in whole through the recognition of prior learning. 

RECOGNISE PREVIOUS LEARNING? 

QUALIFICATION RULES 
The level 6 Degree must total a minimum of 360 credits. The Level 6 degree assumes attainment of the level 5 diploma, or requires that equivalent competence should be achieved during the degree itself. At least 120 credits must further be achieved through the unit standards indicated in the rules of combination below.

In the fundamental component of the qualification, a learner must achieve a minimum of 20 credits by demonstrating the competence required by any standards at level 5 or above which relate to research. At least 4 credits must be achieved through unit standards relating to disability in education and training.

In the core component of the qualification, a learner must achieve all of the level 6 standards not achieved in the level 5 diploma, totalling 76 credits.

In the elective component of the qualification, learners must choose any standards from a discipline or field of occupational competence in which they intend to specialise, which they have not taken as part of a level 5 Certificate and which total a minimum of 20 credits. 

EXIT LEVEL OUTCOMES 
1. Generate options and possibilities for skills and personal development strategies at enterprise and sector level.

2. Identify the most appropriate options for skills and personal development strategies at enterprise, sector and national level, and explain the basis for the choice made, in doing so, including the goals of the Skills Development Strategy.

3. Implement skills development strategies while continuously monitoring and adapting the strategies.

4. Reflect on what they have learnt about themselves as learners and as practitioners during planning and implementation, and identify strengths, weaknesses and areas for improvement. 

ASSOCIATED ASSESSMENT CRITERIA 
Integrated assessment

Assessors should develop and conduct their own integrated assessment against the specific and critical outcomes in a manner which takes account of established assessment principles and makes use of a range of formative and summative assessment methods.

Assessment should involve the application of acquired competence in a workplace or other occupationally-directed context.

Assessors should specifically check for the following:

1. Practitioners should demonstrate competence in the specific outcomes in context. Such demonstration must include:
  • Making provision for increasing worker access to education and training within the workplace;

    - contributing to more structured and targeted skills development within enterprises or other occupationally directed contexts;
    - taking account of workplace productivity as well as increasing the independence and responsibility of learners; and
    - taking into account the national Skills Development Strategy as well as the enterprise/industry strategies for development.

    2. Oral and/or written explanations of how issues that have not occurred during observed performance would be dealt with.

    3. Written and/or oral self-assessment of the practitioner`s own performance and possible future improvements. 

  • INTERNATIONAL COMPARABILITY

    MODERATION OPTIONS 
    1. Anyone moderating the assessment of a learner against this qualification must be registered as an assessor with the relevant ETQA.

    2. Any institution offering learning that will enable the achievement of this qualification must be accredited as a provider with the relevant ETQA.

    3. Moderation of assessment will be overseen by the relevant ETQA according to the ETQA`s policies and guidelines for assessment and moderation, in terms of agreements reached around moderation between ETQAs (including professional bodies) and in terms of the moderation guideline

    4. Moderation must include both internal and external moderation of assessments at exit points of the qualification, unless ETQA policies specify otherwise. Moderation should also encompass achievement of the competence described both in individual unit standards as well as the integrated competence described in the qualification.

    Anyone wishing to be assessed against this qualification may apply to be assessed by any assessment agency, assessor or provider institution, which is accredited by the relevant ETQA.

    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.
