    International Comparability

  • _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Page 6

    This qualification was compared with qualifications and standards in administration in:

    Australia

    New Zealand

    England

    Scotland

    A direct comparison of the title, specific outcomes, assessment criteria, exit level outcomes and embedded knowledge was undertaken with each. However, it was borne in mind that this qualification was developed for the South African context, while at the same time requiring international comparability.

    It was decided that this qualification equated favourably, in terms of the components looked at and in terms of the overall competencies in the qualification, with the administration qualifications in all the countries mentioned. The qualification that best equates with this one is the Australian Certificate 2 in Business (Office Administration) Code BSA 20197.

    Further Development

    This qualification articulates with the following qualifications:

    The National Certificate in Business Administration: Level 3

    The National Certificate in Management: Level 3

    The National Certificate in Public Administration: Level 3

    It should also articulate with any other qualification at level 3 in the following fields:

    Secretarial services

    Reception services

    Switchboard operations

    Financial administration

    Banking administration

    Personal / executive secretarial services
