Occupational Directed Education Training and Development NQF 5

Purpose:

This qualification is for those who want to build on an FETC in any field to enter the field of ODETDP as a potential career, and who have little or no previous exposure to Education,
Training and Development (ETD). The development of skills within and for the workplace is a priority within South Africa, as supported by legislation, national policies and strategies. Much of the needed skills development is carried out by people who have knowledge and skills within their area of expertise, but lack the required skills in relation to ETD. Many of the skills development objectives, nationally and within companies and organisations, are met through the efforts of ETD practitioners operating at NQF Level 5, and this Certificate addresses the key competencies of such practitioners. This qualification will meet the needs of those who wish to progress beyond the FETC ODETDP, or who wish to enter the field of ETD for the first time.
