Community Development is multidisciplinary in nature. It plays an integral part in promoting social inclusion and coherence for communities by empowering them to find sustainable solutions to their challenges. People working with and in communities require relevant knowledge and skills to operate effectively; hence the need for the qualification.
This qualification is designed to equip the learner with the tools to address the challenges of communities in a holistic and integrative manner. It provides an alternative route to the traditional approach of completing a Bachelors Degree as an initial qualification by offering a certificate as a first qualification which then leads to Bachelor Degree study.
This is particularly useful to those who do not obtain admission to Bachelor Degree study with their National Senior Certificate and for those who cannot afford to study full time for four years without being employed. This qualification can be offered in a formal education setting as well as through occupationally directed workplace training for learners already employed in the community development sector.
It contributes towards standardisation of the operations of people working in the community development sector. Communication at NQF Level 4. Recognition of Prior Learning: The Qualification can be achieved in whole or part through the Recognition of Prior Learning.
