This National Diploma can only be obtained through recognition of prior learning.
This qualification is delivered via Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). Students will receive a Portfolio of Evidence (PoE) which they will have to complete in their own time and submit to Chartall Business College for assessment.
There are no formal classes or study notes provided. A textbook is recommended to assist learners and online sessions will be arranged to support students from time to time.
All RPL candidates must EITHER have completed the assessor (115753) and moderator (115759) unit standards OR must enrol to complete them separately as they cannot be RPL-ed. (Online learning options are available for the assessor and moderator unit standards.)
RPL candidates need a good understanding and in-depth knowledge of at least four of the eight subject areas and must have the ability to read and research where their own knowledge is limited. A good command of English is essential as all unit standards 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.
The National Diploma: ODETDP qualification is accredited by the ETDP SETA, and is registered with the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) as a 240 credit qualification at level 5 (SAQA ID: 50333).
