PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION 
Purpose:

This qualification is designed to empower learners to operate efficiently in Foundry Operations, manufacturing either quality pattern equipment (wooden patternmaking), or sand composite moulds and cores by hand (floor moulding) or machine (machine moulding and coremaking) for consumption within a metal casting process, or producing the liquid metal (foundry melting) consumed by such metal casting processes.

This qualification gives recognition for the skills, knowledge and values acquired by learners involved with:
  • The inspection, repairs to and manufacture of wooden pattern equipment required for the sand moulding process or;
  • The manufacture of sand composite moulds or;
  • The preparation, use and operation of Foundry Melting equipment.

    The main skills learnt in this qualification are the ability to:
  • Prepare, use and operate equipment to support the Foundry Melting process equipment. This capability requires a foundational understanding of quality requirements and of the foundry melting process or;
  • Manufacture and maintain simple wooden pattern equipment and recognise and respond to equipment defects. This capability requires an understanding of pattern equipment materials, associated engineering hand and power tools, concepts of measurement, quality requirements and the ability to draw and interpret simple engineering drawings or;
  • Manufacture simple moulds and assemble cores. This capability requires an understanding of the associated pattern equipment, engineering hand and measuring tools, quality requirements and the ability to read and interpret simple technical drawings.

    Practical skills play a large role in this qualification.

    On completion, the learner will receive recognition for the ability to:
  • Manufacture a product (pattern equipment or sand moulds and cores or molten metal) that is used by downstream processes.
  • Check product against customer requirements, engineering drawings or quality standards.
  • Report on the quality of the manufactured product.
  • Take corrective action where required.
  • Solve known associated/routine problems.
  • Function in workplaces that utilise such Foundry Operations.

    Qualified learners will also understand:
  • The basics of how a business functions.
  • Their role in the business, i.e. in production and related activities.
  • How they are affected by legislation, regulations, agreements and policies related to their particular working environment.
  • How they should function within the legislative, safety, health, environmental, quality and risk management systems that govern their workplace.
  • How to apply the various policies and procedures related to these systems.

    Qualifying in the exit level outcomes will enable learners to effectively perform a range of workplace activities. What learners achieve in this qualification will also serve as a basis for further learning within Foundry Patternmaking, Foundry Moulding or Foundry Melting processes. Learners will also have foundational competence in mathematics, science, reading, writing and speaking relevant to Foundry Operations.

    Rationale:

    The Foundry industry is a complex and specialised sector supplying a vast range of quality metal products to downstream customers. The emergence of South Africa as a cost-effective supplier to international markets has created a demand for people with the skills to manufacture the final products as well as function within the support processes to the manufacturing process. These processes include Foundry Patternmaking, Foundry Moulding and Foundry Melting.

    This is the first in a series of qualifications in Foundry Operations starting at NQF Level 2 and progressing to NQF Level 4. This series of qualifications will enable learners to:
  • Develop their existing skill level and progress vertically in a selected career path within the Foundry industry.
  • Receive recognition for experience gained in the workplace through an RPL process.
  • Obtain skills and knowledge portable within similar metal product manufacturing industries.
  • Gain access to higher levels of learning and learning provision.
  • Access opportunities to progress in their personal life and career, and add value to the operations in which they function.
  • Contribute to the growth of the South African economy and the development of society. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    This qualification assumes learners have a National Certificate (General Education and Training Certificate) in Manufacturing, Engineering and Related Activities at NQF Level 1 or equivalent.

    If the learner does not already have such a qualification, learning in preparation for this qualification would also have to include NQF Level 1 learning in:
  • Communication.
  • Mathematical Literacy.
  • Basic concepts of science and technology.

    Recognition of prior learning:

    This qualification may be obtained through a process of RPL. The learner should be thoroughly briefed prior to the assessment and support provided and guidance should be provided to assist in the process of developing a portfolio. While this is primarily a workplace-based qualification, evidence from other areas of endeavour may be introduced if pertinent to any of the exit-level outcomes.

    Care should be taken that the process used provides the learner with an opportunity to demonstrate competence and is not too demanding as to prevent learners from taking up the RPL option towards gaining a qualification.

    Access to the Qualification:

    This qualification is designed for learners who:
  • Are new-entry workers to Foundry Operations.
  • Have attended courses and applied the knowledge gained in the workplace.
  • Are already workers and have acquired the skills and knowledge without attending formal courses.
  • Are part of a learnership programme, which integrates structured learning, and work experience.

    Access for learners with physical disabilities is dependent:
  • On the type and severity of disability.
  • On the nature of the Foundry Operations environment and the inherent requirements of equipment operation. 

  • RECOGNISE PREVIOUS LEARNING?

    Integrated Assessment:

    Integrated assessment at the level of the qualification provides an opportunity for learners to show they are able to integrate concepts, actions and ideas achieved across a range of unit standards and contexts.

    Integrated assessment must evaluate the quality of observable performance as well as the thinking behind the performance, and must be based on a summative assessment guide. The guide will spell out how the assessor will assess different aspects of the performance and will include:
  • Observing the learner at work (both in the primary activity as well as other interactions).
  • Asking questions and initiating short discussions to test understanding.
  • looking at records and reports in the portfolio and reviewing previous assessments.

    In some cases inference will be necessary to determine competence depending on the nature and context within which performance takes place.

    Since this is a foundational qualification, it is necessary to ensure that the fundamental part of the qualification is also targeted to ensure that while the competence may have been achieved in a particular context, learners are able to apply it in a range of other contexts and for further learning. The assessment should also ensure that all the critical cross-field outcomes have been achieved.

    The learner may choose in which language s/he wants to be assessed. This should be established as part of a process of preparing the learner for assessment and familiarising the learner with the approach being taken.

    While this is primarily a workplace-based qualification, evidence from other areas of endeavour may be introduced if pertinent to any of the exit-level outcomes. The assessment process should cover both the explicit tasks required for the qualification as well as the understanding of the concepts and principles that underpin the activities associated with Foundry Operations. 

  • INTERNATIONAL COMPARABILITY 
    An extensive international search was conducted for evidence of comparable education and training systems. Countries included in the search were Australia, New Zealand, Britain, Scotland, Canada, North and South America, Sweden, Finland, Germany and South African SADC countries.

    Despite the fact that Foundry Operations are evident and well developed world-wide, relatively little sources of outcomes-based, standards-based and/or learning material could be found during the research. Indications are that operatives are trained on the job by skilled co-workers, supported by equipment and input material suppliers.

    Additional to this, subject matter experts party to the standards generation process contacted their international counterparts to establish what learning processes they have available. There is evidence of training material, although not aligned to any formal qualification framework.

    The only detailed information found, related to the New Zealand Qualifications Authority, where reference was found within the National Certificate Metal Casting (Technology) (Level 4), reference 0129. This qualification embraces both Engineering as well as Foundry (Patternmaking and Moulding) disciplines.

    The comparison was made difficult because neither the fundamental learning elements nor some of the generic core elements are specified. A further complication is brought about by the fact that the learning required crosses several levels. Further to this, the New Zealand qualification does not specify the level of complexity that has to be achieved. The applied competence in the South African qualification focuses on achieving a specific level of competence required by a person working in a real-world Foundry Operations context in which a degree of specialisation, experience and problem-solving ability is required.

    Further comparison elements are highlighted below:

    Comparison Element; New Zealand Metal Casting qualifications; This Foundry Operations qualification suite:
  • Scope; Nominal competence in a wide range of mechanical engineering skills; Mastery of specific foundry moulding skills in context.
  • Approach; Task based; Skills development-based.
  • Level(s); Level 1, 2, 3 and 4; Level 2, 3 and 4.
  • Context; Partly contextualised; Contextual.
  • Assessment; Institution or work-based; Work-based and portfolio-based.
  • Essential embedded knowledge; Not clear; Specified.
  • Credits; 20, 124, 88 and 75 respectively; 120, 126 and 140 respectively.
  • Fundamental learning; Not formally specified; Specified.
  • Business relations; Not formally specified; Specified.
  • Working with and developing others; Not formally specified; Specified.
  • Life skills; Not formally specified; Specified.

    There are considerable similarities in the competencies required but the approach of the South African qualification looks at whole-person development in not only technological, but also in team and business related skills and makes explicit assumptions related to level of schooling and life skills.

    It is evident that the technical content of this qualification for Foundry Operations places emphasis on safety, quality and best practice but is of better quality and greater value to learners when compared with that found during the research. 

  • ARTICULATION OPTIONS
