SAQA QUAL ID QUALIFICATION TITLE
78965 Further Education and Training Certificate: Information Technology: Systems Development
PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION
Purpose of the qualification:

The purpose of this qualification is to build a foundational entry into the field of Computer Sciences and Information Technology, specifically into the field of Systems Development, covering basic knowledge needed for further study in the field of Systems Development at Higher Education Levels.

 

The qualification is designed to:

  • provide learners with an entry level for further study in Information Technology and related fields, as well as for initial employment in the computer industry.
  • allow many of the listed unit standards to be used in Learnership Schemes in the Information Systems and Technology sector, as well as other sectors where Information Technology is a key requirement.
  • provide a foundational qualification for people who are pursuing a career in the computer industry, or related fields. People with this qualification have an introductory level of understanding about computer industry concepts and/or are able to work in areas of Information Technology with little technical complexity, for example entry-level computer programming, as junior project team member.
  • allow the credits achieved in the National Certificates in Information Technology (Level 2 & 3) to be used as foundation (i.e. learning assumed to be in place) for the requirements of this qualification.
  • have a flexible structure to allow for changing requirements in the computer industry, and to allow providers to create learning programmes with a predominantly Information Technology component but tailored to meet local, national or international needs.

 

LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE
