End User Computing | Level 3
National certificate- Information technology – End User Computing
The purpose of the qualification is to build the knowledge and skills required by learners in End User Computing. It is intended to empower learners to acquire knowledge, skills, attitudes and values required to operate confidently in the End User Computing environment in the South African community and to respond to the challenges of the economic environment. The qualification addresses the need in the workplace for nationally recognised qualifications, based on unit standards, which will allow learners with workplace experience in End User Computing to obtain recognition for prior learning. The qualification provides a framework for learners to develop skills that will enable them to become competent in End User Computing. It introduces theoretical concepts of End User Computing and requires the application thereof, to develop a range of skills that will enable learners to be better-informed workers in their chosen industry. It provides a balanced learning experience that lays the foundation for access to further education, lifelong learning and to productive employment.
Learner is required to have a Minimum Grade 11. Must able to speak and write in English.
All learning material included in tuition fee.
Course Fee: R14100.00
All critical cross-field outcomes are represented in this qualification. Each unit standard
clearly outlines how the critical cross-field outcomes have been addressed. This is further
summarised in the exit level outcomes of the qualification. We have designed the exit level outcomes to facilitate the combining of the end user computing standards with the fundamental standards, to enhance the personal
competencies, which is extended to support the critical cross-field outcomes. To ensure applicability of Fundamental and Critical Cross-field Outcomes, this should be assessed as part of Core and Elective unit standard assessments.
Integrated Assessment Development of the competencies may be achieved through a combination of formal and
informal learning, self-learning, training programmes and work-based application. Providers should conduct diagnostic and formative assessment. Formative, continuous and diagnostic assessments should also take place in the work place, if applicable. The learner should also be able to assess him or herself and determine readiness for a summative assessment against this qualification. During integrated assessments the assessor should make use of formative and summative assessment methods and should assess combinations of practical, applied, foundational and reflexive competencies. To ensure the principles of assessment of fairness, validity, reliability and practicability are upheld, a combination of the assessment methods of observation, product evaluation and questioning should be used, by applying the appropriate assessment tools (as described in the SAQA criteria and guidelines for assessment).
On successful completion of course, the learner will receive a certificate.
