|PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION|
The purpose of this qualification is to prepare a learner to operate as a Small Winder Operator.
A Small Winder Operator operates a small winder to transport materials, explosives and minerals to and from the underground workings of a mine.
A qualified learner will be able to:
The Mining industry requires the transportation of materials, explosives and minerals by means of small winders to and from the underground workings of the mine in vertical and/or incline shafts. This qualification makes it possible for individuals to carry out such winding operations using small winders. The qualification also provides a national standard for workplaces to appoint Small Winder Operators to meet the requirements of the Department of Mineral Resources (DMR).
This qualification has also been developed in anticipation of the occupation becoming regulated by the DMR. This qualification will provide the basis for a licence-to-practice. This forms part of a strategy to improve safety standards in underground mining and emphasises the application of sound hazard identification and risk assessment practices.
Most learners will already have been employed in the Mining industry and, after qualifying, will continue to find employment there.
This qualification will also improve the standard and consistency of training and assessment across all sites. This will result in better operational quality and safety and improve the mobility of Small Winder Operators.
In general the career progression for Small Winder Operators will be to occupations in other aspects of Mining, e.g. Onsetter, Winding Engine Driver or Training, Engineering or Mining Operations.
|LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING|
|Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL):

|ASSOCIATED ASSESSMENT CRITERIA|
|Associated Assessment Criteria for Exit Level Outcome 1:
Associated Assessment Criteria for Exit Level Outcome 2:
Integrated Formative Assessment:
Skills development providers will use the curriculum to guide them on the stipulated internal assessment criteria and weighting. They will also apply the scope of practical skills and applied knowledge as stipulated by the internal assessment criteria. This formative assessment leads to entrance into the integrated external summative assessment.
Integrated Summative Assessment:
An external integrated summative assessment, conducted through the relevant Quality Council for Trades and Occupations (QCTO) Assessment Quality partner is required for the issuing of this qualification. The external integrated summative assessment will focus on the Exit Level Outcomes and Associated Assessment Criteria. The external assessment will be conducted by means of an on-the-job observation by a registered assessor and an assessment of understanding of various winding operations by a panel of at most 3 persons of which one must be a registered assessor.

|PROVIDERS CURRENTLY ACCREDITED TO OFFER THIS QUALIFICATION:|
|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.
