PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION 
This Qualification is for any individual who is, or who wishes to be involved in the Auctioneering Industry. It also serves as an advanced Qualification into Auctioneering operations and management. This Qualification lends itself to rounding off those learners who have progressed along the learning pathway in Auctioneering and want to play more of a management role in running an Auctioneering business.

A learner can complete the Qualification specialising as an Auctioneer in Real Estate, or General and Specialised Assets or Livestock, Game and Agricultural Products. The core unit standards are relevant to all three specialisations.

Learners working towards this Qualification will find that the acquisition of competence in the Unit Standards, which make up the Qualification, will add value to their job. This Qualification is intended to enhance the provision of service within the Auctioneering industry.

It will provide the broad knowledge, skills and values needed in the Auctioneering Industry and will facilitate access to, and mobility and progression within, education and training and progression along a learning path for learners who:
  • Were previously disadvantaged or who were unable to complete their schooling and were therefore denied access to Further Education and Training.
  • Have worked in the Auctioneering Industry for many years, but have no formal Qualification in this area.
  • Wish to extend their range of skills and knowledge of the industry so that they can become competent workers in the Auctioneering Industry.

    The Qualification has building blocks that can be developed further and will lead to a qualification in Auctioneering at a higher level on the NQF.

    The intention is:
  • To promote the development of knowledge, skills and values that are required in the Auctioneering Industry.
  • To release the potential of people, in order for them to grow and develop.
  • To provide opportunities for people to move up career paths by being more valuable to their organisation, the economy and themselves.


    Rationale of the Qualification

    The National Certificate in Auctioneering Management: NQF Level 5 is designed to meet the needs of those learners who are already involved in the field of Auctioneering and now wish to practise in a more senior role in Auctioneering operations or have a managerial career in the Auctioneering Industry. The Auctioneering Industry is an industry in which a constant supply of customers is ensured. This means there is a need to develop career paths in this field, and it is an industry constantly in need of skilled people, especially those who can source new business.

    The competencies required by people working in Auctioneering are both generic and very specific in nature. The management competencies will apply to most other businesses, yet those competencies specific to the industry require ongoing development in Auctioneering specific education and training programmes.

    The National Certificate in Auctioneering Management: NQF Level 5 supports the objectives of the NQF in that it gives the learner access to a qualification registered on the National Qualifications Framework. It will therefore ensure that the quality of education and training in the Auctioneering sector is enhanced and of a world class standard.

    The National Certificate in Auctioneering Management: NQF Level 5 allows the learner to work towards a nationally recognised Qualification and follows on from the level 4 Qualification. The Qualification will allow both those in formal education and those already employed in organisations in the Auctioneering Industry access to a Qualification that can be used to benchmark their competence against local and international standards. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    The following is the learning assumed to be in place:
  • Communication and Mathematical Literacy at NQF level 4 or equivalent.


    Recognition of prior learning

    The structure of this Unit Standard based Qualification makes the Recognition of Prior Learning possible. If the learner is able to demonstrate competence in the knowledge, skills, values and attitudes implicit in this Auctioneering Qualification, credit will be given to the learner. Recognition of Prior Learning will be done by means of Integrated Assessment.

    This Recognition of Prior Learning may allow:
  • For accelerated access to further learning
  • Gaining of credits towards a Unit Standard
  • Obtaining the qualification in whole or in part

    All recognition of Prior Learning is subject to quality assurance by the relevant accredited Education, Training, Quality, Assurance Body and is conducted by a registered workplace assessor. 

  • RECOGNISE PREVIOUS LEARNING? 

    QUALIFICATION RULES 
    The following combination of credits is required to attain the Qualification:

    Fundamental: 15 credits
    Core: 106 credits
    Elective: 20 credits

    Total: 141 credits

    Fundamental component:
    Total: 15 credits at NQF Level 5

    While there is no SAQA requirement relating to the specific number of credits in the Fundamental component of a level 5 Qualification, learning included in this component of the Qualification is essential for all learners to function effectively in their designated workplaces and to ensure success with the Core and Elective learning that has to take place.

    All of these Unit Standards are compulsory.

    Core component:
    Total: 106 credits at NQF Level 5

    The Core component of the Qualification consists of Unit Standards designed to equip the learner with the necessary functional skills and knowledge base required to operate competently within the auctioneering environment. These competencies relate directly to the actual work performed by employees in this area.

    All of these Unit Standards are compulsory.

    Elective component:
    Total: 20 credits at NQF Level 5

    A range of Unit Standards has been included in the Elective component indicating the range of areas in which the learners could work. The possibilities in the list would mean that both individual and provider choice are possible. This also enhances the possibility of any learnership that is registered, base on this Qualification, being demand-led rather than supply-driven. Learners may also choose Unit Standards at Level 5 or above which would improve their ability to perform their duties at work or that covers an area of learning in which they have a particular interest, providing such choice meets with the approval of the relevant ETQA.

    The learner is required to select Unit Standards to a value of at least 20 credits for this component.

    Integrated Assessment

    Because assessment practices must be open, transparent, fair, valid, and reliable and ensure that no learner is disadvantaged in any way whatsoever, an integrated assessment approach is incorporated into the Qualification.

    Learning, teaching and assessment are inextricably linked. Whenever possible, the assessment of knowledge, skills, attitudes and values shown in the unit standards should be integrated.

    Assessment of the communication, language, literacy and numeracy should be conducted in conjunction with other aspects and should use authentic Auctioneering contexts wherever possible.

    A variety of methods must be used in assessment and tools and activities must be appropriate to the context in which the learner is working. Where it is not possible to assess the learner in the workplace or on-the-job, simulations, case studies, role-plays and other similar techniques should be used to provide a context appropriate to the assessment.

    The term 'Integrated Assessment' implies that theoretical and practical components should be assessed together. During integrated assessments the assessor should make use of formative and summative assessment methods and assess combinations of practical, applied, foundational and reflective competencies.

    Assessors and moderators should make use of a range of formative and summative assessment methods. Assessors should assess and give credit for the evidence of learning that has already been acquired through formal, informal and non-formal learning and work experience.

    Assessment should ensure that all specific outcomes, embedded knowledge and critical cross-field outcomes are evaluated. The assessment of the critical cross-field outcomes should be integrated with the assessment of specific outcomes and embedded knowledge. 

  • INTERNATIONAL COMPARABILITY 
    The Auctioneering Industry is a discipline with globally recognised best practices, standards and Qualifications. This Qualification and set of unit standards utilises international and locally recognised best practice and standards in the practices of running and conducting auction sales.

    Benchmarking was done by comparison to Unit Standards / Outcomes of learning against:
  • New Zealand Unit Standards in Livestock business -
  • Arrange for sale of livestock by auction - 10 credits - level 4
  • Sell livestock and chattles by auction - 14 credits - level 4
  • Auction wool - 10 credits - level 5
    The above were used in the comparison of the livestock elective unit standards
  • Sell boats by auction - 3 credits - level 4
  • Prepare, plan and facilitate a property sale by auction - 3 credits - level 4
    The above unit standard was used as a comparison for the auctioning unit standards

    A direct comparison with each unit standard was undertaken and the best practice points were highlighted and incorporated into each unit standard. However the outcomes incorporated were written in a South African context.

    Because of the difference in levels across the different countries, difficulty was found in making actual direct comparisons, level to level. It was found that the South African unit standards seem to contain more detail and therefore are slightly more complex in their presentation and execution.

    The work groups also referred to other facets of national and international benchmarking, which occurred continuously throughout the Qualifications and Unit Standard writing process.

    These facets were:
  • The methods and techniques for writing standards
  • The contents of the unit standards
  • The levels in other countries compared to South Africa
