Concept of localisation and decentralisation
Concept of localisation and decentralisation industry and local needs

  • The NQF provides national guidelines and criteria for the development of standards and qualifications which form the basis of curriculum development

  • Flexibility of the NQF allows for the development of local standards and qualifications as long as NQF guidelines and criteria are met

Namibia Training Authority


  • No centralised mandatory curriculum industry and local needs

  • Training providers can develop and implement their own curriculum based on registered unit standards and qualifications and NTA principles of a CBET curriculum

  • No centralisation of process and content of curriculum development

Challenges
Challenges standards to describe the teaching and learning required to perform the work activities described in the unit standards

  • Inadequate capacity of training providers to develop and implement own CBET curriculum resulting with an element of centralisation and national coordination by NTA contrary to philosophy of decentralisatiom

  • Paradigm shift from a traditional highly centralised structure and system of curriculum development

Namibia Training Authority


Challenges1
Challenges standards to describe the teaching and learning required to perform the work activities described in the unit standards

  • Localisation and decentralisation of curriculum considered as lowering of standards and quality

  • High development costs for training providers

  • Bias for common nationally standardised curriculum and curriculum development process

Namibia Training Authority


Challenges2
Challenges standards to describe the teaching and learning required to perform the work activities described in the unit standards

  • Overemphasis on preparing trainees for progression to tertiary and higher education tends to promote a high level of curriculum centralisation

  • Bias for common nationally standardised curriculum and curriculum development process

  • Regional pressures and establishment of regional qualifications framework

Namibia Training Authority


Conclusion
Conclusion standards to describe the teaching and learning required to perform the work activities described in the unit standards

  • Need for balance between decentralisation and localisation and centralisation

  • Need to build capacity at local level

  • Paradigm shift

  • Promotion of diversification of training which takes into account available local resources
