NATIONAL QUALIFICATION FRAMEWORK: LEVELING THE QUALIFICATIONS PLAYING FIELDon Saturday, 31 August 2013. Posted in News
PNG is yet to follow a standard National Qualification Framework to assess competency in trainee trades persons.
This is from President of the PNG Training & Development Society, George Arua.
Yesterday, the PNGTDS held its monthly breakfast meeting to get members attuned to the PNG National Qualification Framework for Business Competency Standards.
Mr Arua said the framework will allow nationals to have the same qualifications as anyone else around the world.
Mr Arua ran through the details of the framework and how member organizations could use it to assess competency in trainees.
The National Qualification Framework is an internationally accepted structure adopted to oversee competency training. The framework was adopted by PNG in 2009.
The meeting yesterday focused on the technical and vocational training sector.
Mr Arua said most people in the industry are well aware of the framework but he doubts they understand how it works.
He said this is an opportunity for nationals to be employed overseas.
Mr Arua said it was important for their members to understand the units of competencies and their elements, so they can build up their performance criteria as they go.
