0.1 PART I: The Occupational Profile (OP) of a FABRIC DECORATOR. This Occupational Profile which was reviewed by Fabric Decorators practicing in the world of work mirrors the duties and tasks that Fabric Decorators are expected to perform.
0.2 PART II: Training Modules in the form of guidelines to train Fabric Decorators both on the job as well as in training centres (or combinations of both venues of learning).
The Training Modules herein have been reviewed basing on the Occupational Profile and hence are directly relevant for employment.
0.3 PART III: Assessment Instruments in the form of performance (Practical) and written (theory) test items that can and should be used to assess whether a person complies with the requirements of employment as a FABRIC DECORATOR. These assessment instruments were reviewed jointly by job practitioners (Fabric Decorators) and instructors based on the occupational profile and training modules.
0.4 While the Occupational Profile (OP) contained in PART I of this document provides the information on WHAT a person is expected to do competently in the world of work, the test items, – including performance criteria- of PART III qualify the HOW and/or HOW WELL a person must do the job.
0.5 The modular format of the curriculum (PART II) allows learners to acquire job specific
skills and knowledge (i.e. competencies) module by module. A single module can be
accomplished within a relatively short duration allowing flexibility for learners to move
directly into an entry level job, go for further modules or advance to higher levels of
Modular courses allow more learners to access the training system because
training centres as well as companies can accommodate more learners in a given period of time.
0.6 In addition to improved access, equity and relevance of BTVET, the UVQF will also enable people who are convinced to have acquired competencies laid down in this ATP through prior training and on-the-job experience to access assessment and certification directly; be it on the basis of a single module, a group of modules or all modules pertaining to the occupation at once. This achievement will facilitate Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL).
