What are the Level Descriptors?

A level descriptor is a statement of achieved cognitive competence. Level descriptors provide a description of each of the levels on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF). The purpose of such description is to assist a writer of Part Qualifications or Qualifications in designing a Qualification by allocating a level to a Part Qualification or a Qualification, and to formulate outcomes and criteria for assessment that could clearly indicate the level of knowledge of a learner required to successfully achieve the Part Qualification or Qualification. The NQF used to have eight levels. In 2008 the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) Act No 67 replaced the South African Qualifications Authority Act No 58 of 1995. The NQF Act brought changes in the education and training sector - the levels of the NQF form part of these changes. There are now 10 levels on the NQF. SAQA in agreement with the three quality councils - Umalusi, Quality Council on Trades and Occupations (QCTO) and the Council on Higher Education (CHE) has developed level descriptors for the 10-level NQF.
