dc.description.abstract South Africa is faced with the challenge of reconstruction and social recovery having held its .first democratic elections in 1994. Education was central to the discursive process of racial and cultural segregation (Baxen & Soudien 1999: 131). After the 1994 elections the whole education dispensation in South Africa was bound to change dramatically. This is a logical deduction since new role players will always have a new vision, in order to spell out the new roads to be embarked upon. Jansen (1999:145) puts it as follows: "...OBE as primarily a political response to apartheid schooling rather than one which is concerned with the modalities of change at classroom level". A multitude of changes have taken place in the interim. One of the major changes was legislation that provided for the establishment of SAQA (South African Qualifications Authority). The Act was promulgated in 1996, Act 58 of 1996. The main objective of SAQA is to provide for the development and implementation of the NQF (National Qualifications Framework). The NQF brought about a new structure regarding bands of education and levels of qualifications within the said bands. (Refer to diagram 1). According to Pretorius (1998:4) the framework of the NQF makes provision for life-long learning opportunities and levels of qualifications nationally agreed upon. en_US
