National Vocational Qualification (NVQ)

The important object of the Tertiary and Vocational Education Act No 20 of 1990 is the development of a nationally recognized system for granting of tertiary education award and vocational education awards including certificates and other academic distinctions.
 
The National Vocational Qualifications (NVQ) Framework is a seven level qualification framework. A Qualification is generally a package of competency units to suit requirements in a particular position in the labour market.
 
The criteria for giving levels to qualifications are based on three parameters.
Complexity of the process that a qualification holder will carry out
Learning demand (difficulty in learning of those processes)
Responsibility of the job holder when relevant processes are carried out
