NC(V)QUALIFICATION

ABOUT THE COLLEGE

 

Central Johannesburg Colleges was born in September 2003, following the official declaration

of Technical Colleges into Further Education and Training Colleges, by the then Minister of

Education, Professor Kader Asmal. This declaration followed because of a national strategy to

restructure the educational landscape of South Africa and to provide improved access to a

more diverse learner population. It is the ultimate aim to create a FET sector that will directly

impact on the transformation of the society in terms of relevant education that will uplift

the economy through active entrepreneurial training and the preparation of learners for the

world of work.

Stability, growth and unity are the key concepts behind our corporate brand. The image of the

CJC logo reflects a dynamic, UNIFIED and responsive culture. The shield represents our

academic traditions and symbolizes protection, strength and stability. The four parts of the

flame represents the four merged colleges unified in a single flame of enlightenment and

leadership. The flame signifies leadership and guidance, illuminating and enlightening the

learners. The sun, the true symbol of South Africa, symbolizes hope, growth, life and warmth.

The national palette represents diversity and unity through colour. Our logo unites the four

colleges under a single image and lights the dawn to a new promising success, growth,

quality, prosperity and excellence.

There is a new vocational study opportunity at Public FET Colleges. In January 2007, Central

Johannesburg College introduced a new , exciting, modern and practically oriented study

programme in the form of National Certificate (Vocational) NQF Level 2. This is a high skills,

high quality and high knowledge vocational programme that is intended to directly respond to

the priority skills demands of the modern economy. The NC(V) NQF Level 3 programme starts

in January 2008. NC(V) NQF Level 4 will follow in January 2009.

 

OUR CORPORATE IDENTITY

THE NEW NATIONAL CERTIFICATE (VOCATIONAL)

OVERVIEW OF THE NC(V) QUALIFICATION

The new curriculum is offered in the following ten learning areas (sub-fieds):

A. UNDER THE SCHOOL OF ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY (ET)

• Electrical Infrastructure Construction

• Civil Engineering & Building Construction

• Engineering & Related Design

B. UNDER THE SCHOOL OF ENTERPRISE & BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT (EBD)

• Management

• Marketing

• Finance, Economics & Accounting

• Office Administration

C. UNDER THE SCHOOL OF HEALTH & HUMAN SERVICES

• Tourism

• Hospitality

D. UNDER THE SCHOOL OF INFORMATION & COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGY (ICT)

• Information Technology & Computer Science

Each NQF level is offered as a ONE YEAR qualification, i.e. January to December.

Each NC(V) qualification has a total of SEVEN SUBJECTS per NQF level. THREE of the seven

subjects are called FUNDAMENTAL SUBJECTS, i.e. they are common for all learning areas

(sub-fields) and are also COMPULSORY. The three fundamental subjects are:

1. Life Orientation

2. Language/Communication

3. Maths (ET & ICT students) or Maths Literacy (EDB & HHS Students)

The purpose of the fundamental subjects is to provide a foundation upon which to build the

vocational subjects. Each student must enroll for FOUR VOCATIONAL SUBJECTS in each

learning area. The four vocational subjects are compulsory and in some cases, a student will

choose a fourth vocational subject from a few optional subjects.

• To enroll for any of the NC(V) qualifications at NQF Level 2, a prospective student:

– must have a Grade 9 pass or a higher qualification; OR

- must have an NQF Level 1 qualification; OR

– must have an approved bridging programme designed for the specific purpose to access

NQF Level 2; OR

– go through a Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) assessment to meet the basic

requirements for access to NQF Level 2

• To enroll for NQF Level 3, a student must have completed a relevant NQF Level 2.

• You must pass all SEVEN subjects to obtain the NC(V) qualification at a particular level and

to progress to the next NQF Level.

• The pass requirement for the four vocation subjects is 50% per subject

• The pass requirement for the fundamental subjects is as follows:

– Life Orientation 40%

– Language/Communication 40%

– Maths/Maths Literacy 30%

 

DURATION OF STUDY

CURRICULUM

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

PASS REQUIREMENTS

Only ONE fundamental subject may be condoned for a maximum of 5%:

Please remember that this a year qualification and should you fail, you may be required to

repeat the course or write supplementary exam.

The final pass mark is compiled from an Internal Assessment mark and an External

Examination mark. Internal Assessment is continuous throughout the year and External

Examination is written during November of each year.

Internal Assessment is comprised of Formative and Summative Assessments.

Summative Assessment includes class tests, standardized tests and performance tasks.

Formative Assessment includes class work, assignments, research projects, etc. Both

Formative and Summative Assessment work results in a Portfolio of Evidence (PoE). This PoE

is crucial as the Internal Assessment counts as follows towards the final pass mark:

Fundamental Subjects 25% of the final mark

Vocational Subjects 50% of the final mark

The examination is external as the Directorate Examinations & Assessment sets the

examination nationally. This means that all students write the same examination paper

on the same day for a particular subject. This sets national standards for assessment

and achievement. The external examination counts as follows towards the final pass mark:

Fundamental Subjects 75% of the final mark

Vocational Subjects 50% of the final mark
