About This Course

Each supervisor and manager have the responsibility to evaluate or assess completed work or results, as well as the work performance of subordinates, on a continuous basis.

The National Qualifications Framework (NQF) in South Africa is a national structure consisting of qualifications and standards that have been compiled by all the role-players in a specific industry sector. Each job level and position in an industry or organisation should therefore have a corresponding qualification structure. Such qualifications include specific competencies and are known as unit standards. A typical qualification could have between 15 to 25 competencies or unit standards.

A job or position can be evaluated on two levels: against minimum standards (this is the emphasis of the NQF system) or against competitive standards. A competitive standard would usually be at a higher level of achievement than a minimum standard and could be part of a system of performance appraisal, “Balanced Score Cards”. Code of Best Practice, etc.

To assess work effectively is a profession (consist of a system of specific principles and practice) which should be correctly learned. This is the purpose of this course: to learn about the appropriate process and principles of assessment which would give valid and reliable results.
