MICT SETA qualifcations review – Film and Media qualifications 11


The MICT SETA together with the QCTO is in the process of reviewing qualifications for all sub-sectors that fall within its scope. These are:

Advertising;

Film and Media;

Electronics;

IT;

Telecommunications

To this end we have held two pre-scoping sessions for the Journalism and the Film and Media (FEM) qualifications. During the Film and Media pre-scoping session, a suggestion was put forward that a blog be created to enable participation by the stakeholders, hence the creation of this blog.

To recap from the (FEM) session, stakeholders need to confirm if the proposed occupations are the correct ones. The session also asked the MICT SETA to extract from the OFO the different occupations and the tasks related to them. The next meeting is scheduled to take place on the 27th of October at the e Academy premises. It will be highly appreciated if the participants can use the blog and make inputs that can then be used for that session.

The occupations that were extracted from the OFO are as follows:

    I’ve had feedback from a number of the professional guilds operating within SASFED – they’ve suggested we take a look at Creative Skillset in the UK: see http://creativeskillset.org/job_roles_and_stories/job_roles/306_production_manager_tv

     Feedback from SAGE:

    I’ve never heard of a production manager doing the following

    • Creating, planning, writing scripts for recording, videotaping and editing programs 

    • Directing all aspects of dramatic productions on stage, television, radio or in motion pictures, including choice of actors, and final decisions concerning costumes, set designs, sound or lighting effects

       

      I don’t know of Production assistants who do the following

    • Controlling equipment to edit and mix image and sound recordings to ensure satisfactory quality and to create special image and sound effects

    • Controlling equipment to record sound

    I think it’s important that we include input from the professional guilds wherever possible – let’s get SAGE involved in defining occupations in the post-prod space,  IPO and DFA for production issues, SASC for cinematography and lighting, WGSA for script development, SAGA for acting … and so on.

    Hi Charlton,

    Thanks for the update.

    I have emailed some thoughts and suggestions through to you re: the Sound Technology qualification (48671).

    I am unfortunately not able to make it to JHB on Monday; however I am very keen to be involved with the updating/reviewing/changing of the qualification.

    I would be grateful for continued updates.

    Warm regards,

    Bronwen.

    Colleagues

    Thank you so much for all the input both on the blog and offline. I have been inundated with responses and this helps skill development for the Film and Media sub-sectors. Unfortunately we are unable to accommodate the experts from outside Gauteng at this stage. We will most definitely be accommodating them as we move forward with this process.

    We unfortunately also cant SKYPE at this stage as we are not setup at this stage. Thank you

    @Tshepo Molamu – Are you a television or radio person, active in industry? And what role do you fulfill? It’s great to involve stakeholders but we first need to determine where you fit in so we can ensure you’re attending the right session. I don’t see much on your profile here. Regards, Natalie  (Chair of NAB Skills Forum).

    “Hi,

    I’m based in Port Elizabeth and would like to be a part of the meeting on 27th October.

    Is it possible for me to SKYPE into the discussion or could we have a live blog/IM session included?

    I look forward to your response.

    Bronwen.”

    I will look into this possibility and will revert back to you.
