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 
Purpose:

The primary purpose of the Qualification is to provide graduates with the systematic knowledge, specialized skills, applied competence and necessary attitudes in the fields of development and public administration to make them lifelong learners, employable workers/entrepreneurs and contributors to development and public administration in various public and civic contexts.

A second purpose of the Qualification is to provide South Africa (and other countries) with graduates in development and public administration with in-depth knowledge and the confidence to identify and define complex problems to widen the leadership base of innovative and knowledge-based economic and scholarly activity.

A third purpose of the qualification is to provide South Africa (and other countries) with people who can play a constructive role as change agents in the field of development and public administration.

Rationale:

The mission of the Management College of Southern Africa (MANCOSA) focuses on the provision of affordable, accessible and accredited management programmes. The Bachelor of Commerce Honours in Human Resource Management will provide access to higher education to persons wanting to make careers in the field of commerce and industry and will complement the existing accredited Qualifications that Management College of Southern Africa offers.

The Bachelor of Commerce Honours in Human Resource Management Degree is of special interest to the working professional in business and private organizations and those who wish to pursue a career in human resources management. The course work is designed to provide the student with an understanding and working application of the principles essential to the effective management of organizations, with specialization in the human resource function. The programme offers persons in employment the opportunity to extend their Qualifications and become empowered in their quest to be human resource managers.

In addition, the programme will provide a route for students aspiring to study further on the established Management College of Southern Africa MBA programme.

Management College of Southern Africa is a distance education institution and its programmes are available to students internationally. Most of the existing intake is situated in the SADC region, where the learning programme could serve fruitfully to integrate and regularise the business management practices amongst the states in the region. The access to higher education could have a significant positive influence on the ability of young businessmen and women to become leaders in their fields and to make positive contributions to the economies of their countries.

Finally, the programme will address the issue of shortages of qualified personnel and contribute to the development of ethical practices and good governance in the private and business sectors. 

LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
Learners who register for this Qualification can:
  • Learn from predominantly written material.
  • Communicate knowledge of the discipline/field of study coherently and logically in the medium of instruction.
  • Take responsibility for their own progress within a specific area of study.
  • The learner is competent in the language of instruction of the programme.
  • The learner has obtained the general theoretical, practical, professional and academic knowledge and understanding at NQF Level 7.

    Recognition of Prior Learning:

    This Qualification may be obtained in whole or in part through the Recognition of Prior Learning.

    In the cases where prior learning is to be recognised for purposes of access to the Qualification:
  • It is assumed that the learning derived from work or life experience will be a major element in the profiles of non-standard entrants primarily by means of an examination of their Curriculum Vitae (CV).
  • Such 'non-standard' candidates will be selected on the recommendation of a senior manager from their organisations/companies.
  • Where appropriate, interviews will also be conducted to assess the applicants. Some of the key criteria that will be used in evaluating 'non-standard' applicants include:
    > The applicants' motivation, maturity and realistic approach to their studies.
    > Job description, covering relevant area of work, giving examples of tasks carried out, possibly supplying references.
    > The nature and level of life/ work experience and prior study, and the learning which has resulted from such experience.
    > Details of in-company short courses, length, content of material covered, standard achieved.
    > The clarity of the applicant's educational goals and objectives.
    > The extent to which the applicant can provide evidence of the threshold skills and knowledge for the programme.

    Where prior learning is recognized for advanced standing, credit will be given for prior certificated learning in accordance with established practice at South African higher education institutions. The amount of 'specific' credit granted is dependent on the match between prior learning and award towards which the intended programme leads.

    Credits may only be accumulated for modules, which are prescribed within the structure of a named award.
