This highly sought-after National Diploma (NQF 5) in occupationally directed education, training and development practices hones the skills required by training and development professionals in South Africa.
The National Diploma in ODETDP addresses the general competencies across eight key education, training and development (ETD) roles. This provides an opportunity for learners to specialise in any four areas in line with their areas of interest. This is done by selecting electives from the specialist areas of your choice.
These eight areas are:
- Design and develop learning programmes;
- Facilitate and evaluate learning;
- Provide learning support to learners and organisations;
- Engage in and promote assessment practices;
- Conduct skills development facilitation;
- Develop standards and qualifications;
- Manage and administer education, training and development;
- Engage in general management activities.
Because of the RPL delivery mode, prospective learners will need to have extensive prior learning in the ETD field to enrol.
This qualification is most suitable for:
- Learning facilitators
- Learner and learning supporters and advisors
- Skills development facilitators
- SETA staff and quality assurers
This qualification also provides learners with access to the Chartall Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree.What are the entry requirements for RPL?
All RPL candidates must EITHER have completed the assessor (115753) and moderator (115759) unit standards OR must enrol to complete them separately as these cannot be RPL-ed. (Online learning options are available for both the assessor and moderator unit standards at an additional cost.)
RPL candidates need a good understanding and in-depth knowledge of at least four (but preferably all) of the eight subject areas. They must also have the ability to read and research where their own knowledge is limited. A good command of English is essential as all assessments are in English.
Access to real work examples of materials, policies and documents created in the ETD space will be advantageous as it will shorten the time to completion and provide supporting evidence of competency.
