The qualification provides learners with the opportunity to gain competence in poultry production and will facilitate their securing employment in the industry. For those who are already employed in a poultry production farm, the multi-skilling that the qualification offers will expand their horizons and allow them to follow career paths in other sectors of the industry.
The qualification is designed to provide a structured learning path for employees in the Poultry Production industry in South Africa, be they in the employ of commercial farms or as entrepreneurs.
The qualification would enable employees to move within the poultry industry, between the fields of Production and Processing.
This Qualification will articulate vertically with the:
National Certificate: Abattoir Slaughtering Processes at NQF Level 2.
National Certificate: General Abattoir Processes at NQF Level 2.
While the Production and Processing qualifications diverge as they progress upwards, there remains sufficient common ground for holders of one qualification to be able to be employed in the other field with minimum additional training.
