Outcomes:

This qualification will provide candidates with:

  • A foundation of heritage practice skills and knowledge, which can be used to build further heritage management related competencies
  • Competencies to be effective heritage workers on either the formal or informal heritage management levels
  • Competencies to preserve and promote the heritage wealth of South Africa
  • Accreditation of experience already achieved within the sector.
Working Environment

    The working environment includes both working within formalised heritage institutions/organisations (museums, art galleries, archives, national parks, heritage development agencies, governance), or within informal heritage projects/initiatives based at community levels (cultural tourism projects, community centres, NGO's, CBO's).

    Rationale

    The underlying rationale to this qualification is to ensure that heritage resources within South Africa are properly conserved and promoted through a comprehensive understanding of the principles of heritage practice, both within the framework of formal institutions involved in heritage management, as well as across the informal framework of heritage development based at community level.

    This qualification therefore reflects the needs of the heritage management sector, both now and in the future, for a skills pool able to make a meaningful contribution to the transformation and development of South Africa's heritage management sector.

    The qualification on this level focuses on the areas of Heritage Practice as the foundational competency for the heritage management sector and is intended for learners who already work within the heritage management sector, as well as those learners wishing to enter the field within both the formal and informal heritage work based contexts.

    Through this qualification, candidates already engaged in the sector will be able to develop further competencies to assist the strengthening of their foundational heritage practice knowledge and skills within the workplace, or, through assessment, be able to be accredited for their knowledge and skills already acquired through their experience within the work place.
