PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION 
Purpose:

The Further Education and Training Certificate: Event Support is aimed at individuals already employed or planning to become employed in the broader events sector. Competent learners will be able to provide effective and efficient support services to event organisers and suppliers of goods and services to the events industry.This is critical to support the services offered by other tourism product suppliers and will help to retain and grow the number of tourists. Employment opportunities resultant from this entry level qualification will include entry level personnel positions in various areas of the events industry and activities will generically cover initial customer contact as well as abilities to satisfy customer needs.

The qualification provides grounding in knowledge of the industry and customer service as well as specific occupationally related skills in a range of elective choices, which include the various genres that prepare learners for the world of work.

The learner successfully completing this qualification will be able to:
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the events industry.
  • Perform event administration functions.
  • Execute event support functions.

    Rationale:

    The Events industry in South Africa is presently following the international trend of becoming a more regulated environment. Within the South African events environment, specific legislative frameworks are already being established to inform the closer regulation of the industry. One example of such regulatory requirements includes risk and safety planning and management in the gathering of individuals associated with a very wide range of potential applications.

    The Event sector enables application of events organising and service provision across the following genres:
  • Business: Conferences, exhibitions, expos, workshops, indabas, in-house training interventions, and product launches, hospitality, meetings, marketing and retail and promotional events.
  • Tourism: Promotions, destination promotion, functions, guided experiences.
  • Leisure: Festivals, Music and cultural events, celebrations: parties and weddings, coordinating competitions and fundraising.
  • Incentives: Staff reward and motivational experiences: usually including business, tourism, sport and leisure activities.
  • Sporting: Events in all codes of sport at all levels (club: national: international) including function coordination and venue hire at sporting venues.
  • Government: Inauguration, AIDS, reception of international visits, security and protocol.

    All of these applications of events services are affected by the regulatory framework presently being formulated. The enabling of a qualification stream for which this qualification is the entry level qualification, will add specific value as to the standardisation of knowledge and skills requirements of individuals employed in this economically lucrative industry.

    The qualification envisaged will enable increased employability and employment mobility and recognition for competencies attained and will benefit the sector in the enabling of better equipped personnel which is able to fulfil roles efficiently, effectively and in a manner that results in customer satisfaction and retention. This undoubtedly will benefit the sector in terms of envisaged growth, increased employment, business opportunities and investment return within the service industry.

    Maintain effective working relationships:
  • The maintaining of effective working relationships is supported through the requirements of the operational environment and the very nature of the events industry, which is very service, orientated.

    Science and technology:
  • The use of Science and Technology is supported by the use of computer literacy in the operational environment as well as the electronic applications used for the gathering and reporting of information in the performance of event support and administration. 

  • ASSOCIATED ASSESSMENT CRITERIA 
    Associated Assessment Criteria for Exit Level Outcome 1:

    1.1 The events industry is described in terms of the international and national events environment.
    1.2 The relationship between the events industry and other industries are explained as it applies to the sector.
    1.3 Events business requirements are explained in terms of the operational environment.

    Integrated Assessment:

    Assessment practices must be open, transparent, fair, valid, and reliable and must ensure that no learner is disadvantaged in any way whatsoever. For this purpose, an integrated assessment approach is incorporated into the Qualification.

    Learning, teaching and assessment are inextricably aligned. Whenever possible, the assessment of knowledge, skills, attitudes and values shown in the unit standards should be integrated through the practical application of sales and services in a Nature Conservation environment.

    Assessment of the communication, language, literacy and numeracy should be conducted in conjunction with other aspects and should use authentic Nature Conservation sales and services contexts wherever possible.

    A variety of methods must be used in assessment and tools and activities must be appropriate to the context in which the learner is working. Where it is not possible to assess the learner in the workplace or on-the-job, simulations, case studies, role-plays and other similar techniques should be used to provide a context appropriate to the assessment.

    The term 'Integrated Assessment' implies that theoretical and practical components should be assessed together. During integrated assessments the assessor should make use of formative and summative assessment methods and assess combinations of practical, applied, foundational and reflective competencies.

    Assessors and moderators should make use of a range of formative and summative assessment methods. Assessors should assess and give credit for the evidence of learning that has already been acquired through formal, informal and non-formal learning and work experience.

    Assessment should ensure that all Specific Outcomes, Embedded Knowledge and Critical Cross-Field Outcomes are evaluated. The assessment of the Critical Cross-Field Outcomes should be integrated with the assessment of Specific Outcomes and Embedded Knowledge. 

    INTERNATIONAL COMPARABILITY 
    The scoping and conclusion of the envisaged events qualifications stream was informed by extensive liaison with in particular the British and Canadian events industries. Comparison thus formed an integral part of the planning and final conclusion of the submitted events qualification stream of which the Further Education and Training Certificate Event Support, NQF Level 4, forms the entry-level qualification to this qualification stream.

    Impact of international comparison on the standard setting process:

    It is thus necessary to note even at the onset of the provided international comparison, that research conducted as part of the comparison, both informed and verified the content of the South African qualifications presently earmarked for registration. Having said that, it should likewise be noted that the specific requirements of the South African environment, in particular as it applies to our more diverse population and cultural spread, as well as the requirements of access and redress, also impacted on the final qualification/s as presented.

    In particular, the Further Education and Training Certificate Event Support provides for entry into the Event sector at the level of a junior event support person, something that is not clearly provided for in the more mature international events environment. The enabling of an entry level qualification strongly reflects a commitment to the NQF objective of redressing the inequalities of the past and the reality that the majority of South Africans have been denied access to formal employment opportunities within the event industry.

    In addition, it is furthermore motivated due to the reality that our events industry is presently en route towards maturation and the enabling of the addressing of access and redress enables in the long-term the effective transformation of this industry whilst it is in the process of professionalisation against a more defined regulatory framework.

    In the context of the training requirements for junior event support persons, the present qualification reflects the highest standards of practice, and makes possible the provision events of the highest quality.

    International focus for best practice:

    Liaison in particular took place via the International Event Management Body of Knowledge (EMBOK) structures. Benchmarking as well as comparison was enabled through constructive meetings and liaison with delegates from the events industries within Canada and the UK.

    The EMBOK is a three dimensional description of the knowledge and skills essential to create, develop and deliver an event. The term 'event' as defined by EMBOK includes conferences, exhibitions, festivals, special events, civic events, sports events and the like and thus enables effective comparison of internationally accepted best practices for the events industry at large. (Note: Extensive information presently not included in the International Comparison here provided can be accessed via http://www.embok.org/ and http://www.juliasilvers.com/embok.htm).

    In addition to the above, it should be noted that the Events industries in countries such as Britain, Australia and Canada is much more regulated and structured in terms of legislative frameworks impacting on the professionalisation of the industry than is presently the case in the South African Events environment (The EMBOK is utilised in these countries and is accepted as the international benchmark for in particular events management training).

    The following main knowledge domains are differentiated as per international practices:
  • Design.
  • Administration.
  • Marketing.
  • Operations.
  • Risk.

    The Knowledge Domains can be sub-divide as per the provided table below. For the sake of symmetry the Domains are subdivided into seven Classes. These include:

    Administration:
  • Financial.
  • Human Resources.
  • Information.
  • Procurement.
  • Stakeholders.
  • Systems.
  • Time.

    Design:
  • Content.
  • Theme.
  • Program.
  • Environment.
  • Production.
  • Entertainment.
  • Catering.

    Marketing:

  • Health and Safety.
  • Insurance.
  • Legal.
  • Security.

    These specific focus areas informed the scoping of not only the qualifications stream for events but also ultimately the core focus areas incorporated into the qualifications as generated.

    Canada is well known for successfully staging major world events and for sustaining high levels of customer satisfaction. The Canadian emerit training programmes are based on industry-defined standards. The emerit qualification in Event Co-ordination ties in well with EMBOK and focuses extensively on the knowledge domains as identified in EMBOK.

    The Australian THT30102: Certificate III in meeting and events as well as the NCFE Level 2 Certificate in Event Stewarding (United Kingdom) was selected as to enable comparison with unit standard based qualifications.

    It should be noted that NO qualifications for comparison could be found in terms of searches conducted for SADC countries.

    Conclusion:

    The international comparison with the THT30102: Certificate III in Meeting and Events (Australia) and the NCFE Certificate in Event Stewarding (UK) indicate that good alignment in terms of main focus areas is evident.

    In the scoping of the qualification and qualification stream for which the qualification acts as the first qualification and entry-level learning, the South African stakeholder group agreed that persons accessing this Certificate at NQF Level 4 would fulfil different and supportive roles in line with current business practice in South Africa. This includes greater emphasis on the area of Risk Management.

    This Certificate articulates with other qualifications at NQF Level 5 and above (including that of an event co-ordinator) and it provides a platform for employment at entry level. This qualification is therefore comparable to those mentioned and in some cases exceeds those standards.

    In short the qualification is at least on par with international comparatives, and may well be best practice as it brings together all the key elements present in more than one of the foreign qualifications.

    PROVIDERS CURRENTLY ACCREDITED TO OFFER THESE LEARNING PROGRAMMES: 
    This information shows the current accreditations (i.e. those not past their accreditation end dates), and is the most complete record available to SAQA as of today. Some Quality Assuring Bodies have a lag in their recording systems for provider accreditation, in turn leading to a lag in notifying SAQA of all the providers that they have accredited to offer qualifications and unit standards, as well as any extensions to accreditation end dates. The relevant Quality Assuring Body should be notified if a record appears to be missing from here.
