Identify the practical skills for each occupational responsibility During  the practical skills required for each occupational responsibility are identified. More than one practical skill should be identified for each responsibility. All practical skills linked to a specific responsibility should be at the same NQF level. This might result in the identification of more occupational responsibilities to reflect additional levels and allow for building blocks. It should be noted that some QDFs find it easier to start with this step and then to cluster the practical skills into occupational responsibilities  Either…

Occupational responsibilities

More than one responsibility can be identified for each product or service. This will specifically be required to allow for developmental responsibilities. Developmental responsibilities refer to clusters of practical skills at lower levels of complexity which must be acquired during the occupational learning process. Developmental responsibilities can be seen as building blocks and can also be used for part qualifications. For each occupational responsibility a practical skill module will be developed. The occupational responsibility will be reflected as the title of the practical skill module. It must be remembered that…

Even though most fields will be populated (by the occupational qualification capturing tool), some items from the process report (generated by the DQP) must be included by the QDF in the qualification. This includes the registered qualifications to be replaced,…

Occupational Responsibilities An occupational responsibility

Occupational Responsibilities An occupational responsibility refers to a cluster or group of practical skills that must be performed to produce a specific product or service or a component thereof. It is thus a summary of a number of practical skills at a specific level of complexity. Each occupational responsibility becomes the title of a practical skill module in the curriculum. Some QDFs find it easier to start with Step B4.1 (Identify the occupational responsibilities) whilst others find it easier to start with Step B4.2 (Identify practical skills). In essence it…
