• They are the broad, over-arching outcomes which all learning programmes work towards.
• They are critical for the development of the capacity for lifelong learning.
• They are about the needs of the individual and the needs of society.
• Learning programmes must offer learners opportunities to acquire critical outcomes
• ETQAs must consider how the critical outcomes have been learned and assessed in the programme delivery.

Unit standards will not include all the critical outcomes, but it is expected that a learner would have achieved all the critical outcomes by the time s/he has completed the full qualification.

The following are the prescribed Critical Outcomes
Learners must be able to:
