In all of the tables in this document, both the pre-2009 NQF Level and the NQF Level is shown. In the text (purpose statements, qualification rules, etc), any references to NQF Levels are to the pre-2009 levels unless specifically stated otherwise.  

This qualification does not replace any other qualification and is not replaced by any other qualification. 

PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION 
The purpose of the qualification is to provide learners and education and training providers with the standards required to satisfy the challenges of participating effectively in the furniture manufacturing industry. Typical learners will be workers in the furniture industry.

The qualification will be useful to both new entrants into the industry, and existing workers in the sector.

For those who have been in the workplace for a long time, this qualification can be used in the recognition of prior learning process to assess and recognise workplace skills acquired without the benefit of formal education and training.

For the new entrant, this qualification describes the learning outcomes required to effectively participate in a structured workplace.

For education and training providers, this qualification provides guidance for the development of appropriate learning programmes and assessment documentation.

For employers, this qualification enables skills gaps to be identified and addressed ensuring that productivity levels are increased and business objectives achieved.

This qualification has been developed to assist with standardisation across the furniture industry. This will allow persons to achieve recognition as a furniture maker, and lay a foundation for future career advancement across similar trades and to supervisory and management qualifications within the sector.

The combination of learning outcomes that comprise this qualification will provide the qualifying learner with vocational knowledge and skills appropriate to the context of furniture manufacturing. The learner will have an understanding of the furniture industry and how he or she should operate within the legislative, safety and quality systems which govern the workplace. It will also equip learners with a foundation for further intellectual development, opportunities for gainful employment and reward for contributions to society.

The qualifying learner will be able to:
  • Identify and solve problems in relation to the production of furniture within their work area.
  • Communicate and work effectively with colleagues and supervisors, so that furniture production processes are carried out safely and to the required standard.
  • Demonstrate scientific and technological competence in the carrying out of furniture production processes.
  • Organise and manage him/herself and his/her activities responsibly and effectively to ensure work is carried out according to quality and performance requirements, without compromising safety for self and colleagues.
  • Understand the world as a set of related systems by recognising that problem-solving contexts do not exist in isolation, that when performing furniture making operations that they do not pose a safety risk and that failure to maintain rate and quality of production will negatively impact upon all parts of the furniture production cycle.

    Typical job roles and purpose:
  • Job Role-Purpose.
  • Semi-skilled finisher-Assisting skilled wood finisher.
  • Semi-skilled upholsterer-Assisting skilled upholsterer.
  • Semi-skilled wood machinist -Assisting skilled wood machinist.
  • Semi-skilled cabinet maker-Assisting skilled cabinet maker.

  • Lining up - positioning and attachment of ancillary and support materials for upholstery.
  • Attaching ready-prepared upholstery components to prepared furniture.
  • Simple carcase construction using hand tools, pneumatic tools and basic power tools.
  • Operate sawing, planing and sanding machines.

    The relation between this Qualification and the principles of the NQF is indicated in the following table:

    NQF principle - National certificate in making
  • Recognition of Prior learning - Allows for Recognition of Prior Learning, especially as a means of career advancement.
  • Credibility - Learning Outcomes are a result of consensus by the industry.
  • Relevance- Consulting workshops indicated a demand for unit standard based qualifications in Furniture Manufacturing.
  • Access - Removes traditional barriers to qualifications below "artisan" level.
  • Articulation/Progression - Forms part of a learning pathway for furniture makers, spanning NQF levels 1 - 4.

    Rationale of the qualification

    As a result of past legacies many practitioners within the furniture manufacturing sector were denied career advancement and possible recognition as qualified tradesmen. This was as a direct result of poor educational opportunities in some schools, leading to a lack of entry to formal training institutions. The introduction of a National Certificate in Furniture Making (Wood) based on unit standards will allow learners to reach their full potential of advancement without formal education becoming an impassable barrier and in addition, allow for the recognition of prior learning.

    In the past the only recognition available for a worker in the furniture manufacturing industry was a full artisan qualification. The introduction of a National Certificate in Furniture Making (Wood) at NQF level 2 will allow those practitioners who do not have the academic attributes to achieve a higher qualification to gain recognition for their skills, which had previously been denied them.

    The National Certificate in Furniture Making (Wood) reflects the skills, knowledge and understanding required to participate effectively in the furniture industry, whether in micro, small, medium or large operations.

    The competencies contained in this Qualification are essential for social and economic transformation, empowerment and upliftment within the furniture manufacturing environment, whilst simultaneously improving the skills base of the country.

    This qualification lays the basis of learning towards the more specialised National Certificates in Furniture Making (Wood) at NQF level 3.

    The learning pathway for workers in the furniture industry consists of the following qualifications:
  • NQF level 1: National Certificate (GETC): Manufacturing, Engineering and Related Activities (Furniture).
  • NQF level 2: National Certificate in Furniture Making (Wood).
  • NQF level 3: National Certificate in Furniture Making (Wood).
  • NQF level 4: National Certificate in Furniture Making (Specialism). 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    It is assumed that a learner entering a programme leading to this qualification has successfully completed the National Certificate (GETC): Manufacturing, Engineering and Related Activities (Furniture) at NQF level 1 or has demonstrated equivalent competence.

    Recognition of Prior Learning:

    The qualification may be obtained in whole or in part through the process of Recognition of Prior Learning. Learners who meet the requirements of any unit standard in this qualification may apply for recognition of prior learning to the Forestry Industries Education and Training Authority (FIETA), and will be assessed against the assessment criteria and specific outcomes for the relevant unit standard/s. 

    RECOGNISE PREVIOUS LEARNING? 

    QUALIFICATION RULES 
    The qualification is composed of Fundamental, Core and Elective learning components:
  • Fundamental: 36 minimum
  • Core: 15 minimum
  • Elective: 74 minimum

    Credit total: Minimum of 125 credits

    In order to be awarded the qualification, the learner has to prove competence in all of the Fundamental and Core Unit Standards. Candidates must achieve all the Elective Unit Standards related to their chosen specialism.

    Additional Elective Unit Standards could be added to the qualification over time. 

  • EXIT LEVEL OUTCOMES 
    1. Identify and solve problems in relation to the production of furniture within their work area.

    2. Communicate and work effectively with colleagues and supervisors, so that furniture production processes are carried out safely and to the required standard.

    3. Demonstrate scientific and technological competence in the carrying out of furniture production processes.

    4. Organise and manage him/herself and his/her activities responsibly and effectively to ensure work is carried out according to quality and performance requirements, without compromising safety for self and colleagues.

    5. Understand the world as a set of related systems by recognising that problem-solving contexts do not exist in isolation, that when performing furniture making operations that they do not pose a safety risk and that failure to maintain rate and quality of production will negatively impact upon all parts of the furniture production cycle. 

    ASSOCIATED ASSESSMENT CRITERIA 
    1. Specification, tools, equipment, machinery and materials are checked and any problems are dealt with or reported to the appropriate authority.

    2. All processes are performed according to Health & Safety legislation and organisational requirements.

    3. All machinery and equipment is used safely and appropriately, in line with all organisational standards for quality, production and safety.

    4. Work area, tools, equipment and materials are prepared according to requirements of drawings and specifications, the work area is kept clean, tidy and safe, and all organisational housekeeping procedures are correctly observed.

    5. All processes are carried out as per organisational and international standards and requirements and within the specified time.

    Integrated Assessment:

    Formative assessments conducted during the learning process will consist primarily of demonstrations, with some written tests and a number of self-assessments. The purpose of formative assessment is to diagnose learner strengths and weaknesses and to determine readiness for summative assessment.

    Summative assessment would consist of written tests and accompanying assignments, case studies and practical demonstrations. Summative assessments would only be conducted once the learner has indicated that he/she is ready to undergo summative assessment.

    Before qualifying, learners will be expected to demonstrate competence in a practical situation that integrates the assessment of all specific outcomes, for all unit standards.

    Integrated assessment provides learners with an opportunity to display an ability to integrate practical performance, actions, concepts and theory across unit standards to achieve competence in relation to the purpose of this qualification.

    In particular assessors should check that the learner is able to demonstrate the ability to consider a range of options and make decisions about:
  • The quality of the observed practical performance as well as the theory and underpinning knowledge behind it.
  • The different methods that can be used by the learner to display thinking and decision making in the demonstration of practical performance.
  • Reflexive competencies. 

  • INTERNATIONAL COMPARABILITY 
    This qualification was compared with furniture manufacturing qualifications from a variety of countries, including Scotland, Ireland, Italy and France. Only those qualifications that showed a high degree of comparability are included here.

    It is to be noted that only in the UK is the conflated approach used here duplicated.

    1. New Zealand Qualification Board

    a) Finishing

    This qualification is comparable to the New Zealand National Certificate in Furniture Making (Level 2). The qualification is very similar to the South African. Details appear below:

    The National Certificate in Furniture Making (Level 2) is for new trainees entering the industry, and those employed in the industry who have not had a formal structured qualification available to them. This qualification recognises the knowledge and skills required for the use of stains, coatings and preparation of furniture for Making. The furniture Making sector covers wood finishes as well as paint finishes and alternative materials. The qualification includes specified unit standards from furniture Making and making as well as first aid and generic unit standards, thus recognising the complementary knowledge and skills required for the diverse range of employment options within the industry.

    The holders of the qualification work under supervision and in accordance with job specifications. This certificate recognises base level skills and provides a stairway to the National Certificate in Furniture Making (Level 4) [Ref: 0092].

    Unit No.-Unit Standard Title-Level-Credit
  • 2206-Handle and manage hazardous materials for furniture finishing-2-2
  • 2208-Select, prepare, and apply stain to wooden furniture-3-8

    The following differences are noted:

    i. The New Zealand NQF levels are not directly equivalent to the South African NQF levels. Thus a qualification at, for example, level 2, may encompass elements of South African levels 1, 2 and 3.

    ii. New Zealand unit standards are written at task level. This essentially means that the qualifications are made up of a large number of unit standards with small credit allocations.

    b) Upholstery

    This qualification is comparable to the equivalent New Zealand qualification. The following differences are noted:

    i. New Zealand has three small (40 credit) qualifications at this level:
  • National Certificate in Furniture (Manufacturing Upholstery Cutting).
  • National Certificate in Furniture (Manufacturing Upholstery Sewing).
  • National Certificate in Furniture (Manufacturing Upholstery).

    ii. New Zealand unit standards are written at task level. This essentially means that the qualifications are made up of a large number of unit standards with small credit allocations.

    iii. There are elective standards that cover programming of CNC cutting machinery. This is not introduced into the South African qualifications until a higher level.

    iv. The qualifications include specific electives related to 'craft upholstery'. The South African qualification does not make this distinction.

    c) Wood Machining and Cabinet Making

    This qualification is comparable to the New Zealand National Certificate in Furniture Making (Level 3). The following differences are noted:

    i. The New Zealand NQF levels are not directly equivalent to the South African NQF levels. Thus a qualification at, for example, level 2, may encompass elements of South African levels 1, 2 and 3.

    ii. New Zealand unit standards are written at task level. This essentially means that the qualifications are made up of a large number of unit standards with small credit allocations.
