|PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION|
This diploma will be useful to people who operationalise some aspects of the core processes and practices at a basic level across the four role clusters in human resources management and practices:
Holders of the qualification will be able to operationalise some aspects of the core human resources management processes at a basic level and integrate them into an organisation's business processes.
Holding the qualification will enable holders to enter learning programmes for a generalist degree in Human Resources Management and Practices.
Holding this qualification could serve as a requirement for professional registration at associate level.
Organisations require a reliable indicator that a person is competent to operationalise some aspects of the core processes and practices at a basic level across the four role clusters identified in the field analysis:
Holding the National Diploma in Human Resources Management and Practices will serve as an indicator to organisations that a person is competent in this regard.
Organisations also need the qualification as a benchmark to gauge the competence of people in the organisation against those of their local and international competitors.
Learners need the qualification to increase their access to employment. It will enable holders to enter learning programmes for a degree in Human Resources Management and Practices with a specialist focus in one or more of the four role clusters.
Providers of education and training in the field need the qualification to facilitate portability of learner credits between provider institutions.
|LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING|
|It is assumed that learners have communication and mathematical competence at one level below that required for the fundamental components of the qualification.
Recognition of prior learning:
This qualification can be achieved wholly or in part through recognition of prior learning in terms of the criteria laid out.
Evidence can be presented in a variety of forms, including international or previous local qualifications, reports, testimonials mentioning functions performed, work records, portfolios, videos of practice and performance records.
All such evidence should be judged according to the general principles of assessment described in the note to assessors.
Access to the qualification:
To meet the requirements described as "Learning assumed to be in place" and in the component unit standards, holders of Further Education and Training Certificate ETC or equivalent qualification will have access to the qualification.

> Provide information for the development of policies.
> Participate in the development of procedures for processes related to human resources management and practices in accordance with legislative requirements.
> Recruit and induct new employees.
> Contribute to the development of employees.
> Supervise a work unit and manage individual and team performance.

4. Contribute to the monitoring of Health and Safety at the workplace.
5. Identify strengths and areas for improvement in own learning through self-reflection and reflection on organisational human resources management and practices.
|ASSOCIATED ASSESSMENT CRITERIA|
For award of the qualification, a candidate must demonstrate competence in the required unit standards, according to the rules of combination.
In addition, candidates must demonstrate the ability to engage in a supportive function in an integrative way, as described in the exit level outcomes, dealing with divergent and "random" demands effectively.
|This qualification and the component unit standards have been compared with similar qualifications from the following countries:
In addition, the abilities described in the unit standards have also been compared with the findings of the research commissioned by the World Federation of Personnel Management Associations (WFPMA) as contained in the report by Chris Brewster, Elaine Farndale and Jos van Ommeren, HR Competencies and Professional Standards (Cranfield University, June 2000).
In general this qualification and its component unit standards compare well with their international counterparts. The only major differences are in formatting and scope of coverage or focus. The qualification found to be the most comparable to this one is Scottish Vocational Qualification (SQV) no. G478 Personnel Support Level 3. The differences in the NVQ and NQF level structures make direct equation difficult.
|This qualification will able to articulate with other qualifications in the sub-field as well as provide articulation possibilities with a number of other fields, including ETDP and the humanities and with other qualifications in the sub-field. The document "A Framework for Qualifications for Professionals and Practitioners in People Management Processes" explains the relations between these qualifications.|
|Moderation shall be at the discretion of the relevant ETQA, so long as it complies with SAQA requirements.|
|CRITERIA FOR THE REGISTRATION OF ASSESSORS|
