What is a qualification?

Qualifications prescribe the outcomes and assessment criteria of national unit standards that intend to provide qualifying learners with applied competence and a basis for further learning. A qualification consists of structured classroom based learning components and workplace practical learning components. Assessment of learning will take place after/during class room based learning (formative) and during the workplace practical (summative) components.

  • National Diploma (ND)
  • National Certificate (NC)
  • Further Education and Training Certificate (FETC)

What are learning and skills programmes?

Learning programmes and skills programmes refer to predetermined units of learning (building blocks) with an institutionally determined credit value and duration, and consists of modules of learning. When completed it constitutes credits towards a qualification registered on the National Qualifications Framework.

The unit of learning can be equal to an Exit Level Outcome(s); a stand-alone unit standard or a group of unit standards. OMNI’s design preference is to select and group unit standards that articulate to the same NQF qualification.

A skills programme differs from a learning programme in that skills programmes are occupationally based.

What is a training workshop?

A learning solution that has a set of learning outcomes that is not aligned to SAQA Unit Standards; therefore it will not constitute credits towards a learning programme or qualification on the National Qualification Framework. The duration of the workshop and the learning methodology applied can be adapted to meet the needs of the client. Credits are not awarded – also called a non-credit bearing short course.

What is an RPL programme?

RPL (Recognition of prior learning) Programmes make it possible for you to either gain access to, or earn credits towards, a learning programme, skills programme or full qualification based on previous learning and experience gained through both formal and informal learning.

What is meant by “articulation options?

It refers to:

  • Credits earned through accredited learning solutions that are transferable to other qualifications vertically or horizontally.
  • Being able to move between escalating NQF levels either in the same or related fields of studies.
  • The learning programme or skills programme forms part of a larger qualification.

Can I transfer credits obtained from another accredited institute and gain exemption?

Yes. Omni has a CAT (Credit Accumulation and Transfer) Policy which allows credits to be transferable, under the condition that the credits already obtained are aligned to the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) and National Qualifications Framework (NQF).

Will I need an exemption at Grade 12 level, to register?

No. You will require a valid Grade 12 (Matric) or equivalent certificate, to gain admission into qualifications with Omni HR Consulting that require it.

What supporting documentations will Omni require for me to register?

  • Motivation letter for RPL (if applicable)
  • Up to date Curriculum Vitae

Does Omni HR Consulting assist students with disabilities?

Will I be required to be working in the relevant industry and position?

Outcomes based qualifications require you to gain evidence in an appropriate real-life setting (normally a workplace) when completing assignments. Please note that Omni HR Consulting does not place students in the appropriate workplace environment; you will be required to make your own arrangements to satisfy the work integrated learning requirements of the qualification.
