This programme is developed around a planned combination of learning outcomes that will provide learners with the competencies required in education, training, and/or assessing institutions, and/or in workplaces, who are required to assess people against documented performance standards or unit standards written for registration on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF). The course covers the two NQF registered Unit Standard US 0336 and US 0037 – dealing with assessments.

The programme provides individuals with the range of skills required to be able to perform a series of activities that form part of the assessment of learning outcomes. This covers skills such as planning the assessment, preparing learners for assessment, conducting the assessment and evaluating the evidence submitted for competence as well as providing the relevant feedback. 

Individuals who will typically embark on this skills programme are those who have an interest in a career in education and training or are involved in training in the workplace and will conduct assessments within their fields of expertise in line with the Criteria for the NTA Registration of Assessors.

Individuals credited with these two Unit Standards will be able to demonstrate knowledge of the use of unit standards in assessment, prepare to conduct assessments, conduct assessments, verify the quality of evidence to be used for making assessment decisions, make and record an assessment decision, and reflect on assessment practice and decisions.

Whether you are an individual looking to further a career in logistics and supply chain disciplines or the Wholesale and Retail industry or a business executive responsible for your workforce’s development and training we can help you with your learning and development requirements.

Mode of Delivery and Duration

The programme is offered over a period of four (4) days. Delivery includes facilitation of two (2) days incorporated into practical application of the skill on the job. Coaching and mentoring and practical assessments are conducted whilst the learners are integrated into functional areas in the workplace with defined roles, goals and responsibilities.

Assessment and Moderation

Knowledge assessments are conducted in the classroom under assessment conditions. Assignments and workplace documentation complement practical observations in the workplace environment. Some of the practical observations can be conducted in simulated environments. The assessments are designed in a way that integrate activities, thus demonstrating the learner’s competence against the outcomes and purpose of the programme on an integrated basis.

For credit recognition against US 0336, a candidate must assess a minimum of ONE person for a minimum of ONE unit standard. The unit standard(s) against which the assessment is being made must have been written for registration on the NQF. For credit recognition against US 0337, a candidate must assess a minimum of TWO persons against the criteria relevant to a significant outcome of learning making up a NQF qualification or which relate to the documented performance expectations relevant to a recognised work role or position.
