Description

In attaining competency-based qualifications, it is not the intention to disregard traditional qualifications, but to have qualification which fit the purpose of general obligations towards society and government’s economic policies. Statistics show that the ‘one size fits all’ mandate results in some persons being left behind. Qualifications such as NVQs, CVQs and PLAR, allow us to address this challenge as the qualifications facilitate flexibility for both the instructor/trainer and the candidate, since it provides opportunities to different methods of teaching, there are tailored to each student’s particular need, learning style and ability and there is the opportunity to be re-assessed in the area which may need more work. Finally, competency-based education and training also complements and improves upon the traditional academic approach.

This type of training is beneficial to both employers and employees in creating a well-rounded workforce which will contribute to development and productivity. A full discussion and information on this topic will be discussed at our upcoming Open Forum under the theme “Competency-Based Education: Why Invest".
