Sustainable resource management and use x. Building a developmental state, including improvement of public services and strengthening democratic institutionsinstitutions

10 Focus Areas Equity Impact (Class, race, gender, age, disability, HIV/Aids) Code of decent conduct Learning Programmes for Decent WorkWork Programme Delivery Partners Workplace Skills Plans and Pivotal grants

11 Four Kinds of Programmes Programmes to Facilitate Access PIVOTAL programmes Skills programmes and other non accredited short courses Programmes that build the academic profession and engender innovation

12 Programmes to Facilitate Access Information and Career Guidance Recognition of Prior Learning Raising the Base

13 Pivotal programmes Pivotal Programmes are those Professional, Vocational, Technical and Academic learning programmes that meet the critical needs for economic growth and social development

14 The Pivotal programme Diagram Professional Body Model Required Qualification Required for Practice Professional Co-operative Learning Model Diploma ModelWork Integrated Learning Para Professional Apprenticeship Model Occupational Theory Structured Workplace Learning Trade Internship Model Institution Based Qualification Workplace Learning further access General to Occupation

15 Skills programmes Shorter programmes with a specific application or specialisation Continuing professional development

16 Programmes that build the academic profession and engender innovation Educational Professionals development

17 QCTO APPROACH TO CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT The development need must be formalised through submission of application to QCTO To ensure no overlaps or duplications there will be a Structured development process using: QCTO-registered qualification design facilitator National Organising Progression Framework & OFO OFO occupational descriptors & OFO Unit group tasks OQF Level descriptorss Process questions, templates and electronic capturing systemsystem
