PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION 
In the context of the Sport and Fitness industry, this qualification will enable a qualifying learner to lead creative, innovative and exciting programmes and activities within communities. A qualifying learner will be able to contribute positively towards safe, interesting and exciting sport, and fitness experiences for the participants and as such contribute to the sport and fitness industry of South Africa. The qualifying learner will contribute positively to a general awareness of the role of sport and fitness in the overall well being of the participants as well as within the broader community and increase participation levels.

A learner who has achieved this qualification will be capable of combining a range of self-organisation and life-long learning skills with a working knowledge of sport and fitness issues, and integrating these within a context to produce a multi-skilled practice.

    INTERNATIONAL COMPARABILITY 
    The standards for the event industry have been compared against the United Kingdom unit standards, New Zealand standards as well as the Australian unit standards and show a substantial degree of similarity. 

    ARTICULATION OPTIONS 
    This qualification has compulsory core unit standards on sport and fitness, which are transferable beyond the specific qualification. In the qualification being submitted, the fundamental and core unit standards are the same as for sport, recreation and fitness. This makes it easy for a learner to move from a sport qualification to a recreation or fitness qualification, at a level higher than this qualification, as they will have the core basic knowledge that is applicable in sport or recreation or fitness. This qualification would be useful in community sport volunteers, guided private enterprise and well managed programmes. 

    MODERATION OPTIONS 
    Anyone assessing a learner against this qualification must be registered as an assessor with the relevant ETQAs.

    Any institution offering learning that will enable achievement of this qualification, or assessment against this qualification must be accredited as a provider with the relevant ETQA.

    Moderation of assessment will be overseen by the relevant ETQA according to agreed ETQA procedures.

    Therefore anyone wishing to be assessed against this qualification may apply to be assessed by any assessment agency or provider institution which is accredited by the relevant ETQA.
