    UNIT STANDARD NOTES 
    Supplementary information

    As Economic and Management Sciences have recently been integrated to form a new formal learning area, many educators may not have formal qualifications in the integrated learning area per se. Thus the learning assumed to be in place may be from a different sub-field of the field: Economics, Commerce and Management studies.

    Integrated Economic and Management Sciences forms a relatively large learning area and an extended range of knowledge and skills are required to successfully facilitate the learning area. Therefore this unit standard carries 25 credits, while most other methodology unit standards at the same level are worth 20 credits.

    Practitioners facilitating this new learning area have expressed a need for the requirements to be made clear. The decision to develop a unit standard for facilitators of Economic and Management Sciences was motivated by this.

    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 Primary or Delegated Quality Assurance Functionaries 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 Primary or Delegated Quality Assurance Functionary should be notified if a record appears to be missing from here.
