Call for Public Comment: Draft qualification standard for Engineering qualifications

Tuesday, February 14, 2017

 

The CHE announces the publication of draft qualification standard statements for the Bachelor Engineering Technology and Advanced Diploma in Engineering for public comment. The expanded CHE mandate includes the development of standards for qualifications in higher education. A qualification standard is a generic statement of the learning domains, the level of achievement and the graduate attributes that characterise, and are required for the award of the qualification. They set out expectations about standards of qualifications in a range of fields of study, describing what gives a discipline its distinctiveness. National qualification standards provide both compliance benchmarks and developmental indicators for qualification types as awarded in particular fields of study or disciplines. The CHE Standards development process is underpinned by the fundamental principles of inclusivity, transparency of process and consensus.

The public comment stage ensures that the broader community has an opportunity to review the content of a standard prior to its approval. Draft standards are made available to the public for comment for 30 days. All comments from the public are considered in detail by the relevant standards development reference group, if necessary, further drafting is undertaken to accommodate responses to the comments. Comments should be sent to Ms Fundiswa Kanise at kanise.f@che.ac.za ; subject: (Qualification Name - Comments) by no later than 17 March 2017.
