Course Content
Purpose of this course?
PURPOSE The purpose of the Sustainable Sanitation Management short learning course is to equip participants with relevant knowledge, as well as management, planning and implementation skills on Water and Sanitation Management. Participants from Water Services Authorities, Water and Sanitation Providers as well as all Water Users will thus be able to make informed decisions on the management of water and sanitation in municipalities and other affected areas. In addition, knowledge on the water and sanitation management will advance the implementation of National and Provincial Water and Sanitation policies of the Republic of South Africa.

SECTION B-C: PQM INFORMATION REQUIRED

BC1

Explain how the short course relates to the university’s vision, mission and thrust area and how it relates to the strategic plan with relation to focus areas and planning.

This short learning programme aligns completely with the University of Limpopo’s Vision and Mission statements in that it has responded to, and has focused on, the developmental needs of the community, particularly those in a local government sphere where municipalities are required to prove their competence in Sustainable Sanitation Management.  It particularly focuses on the following two specific mission related goals and aims:

  • To strengthen and maintain close collaboration with commerce, industry, the government and local authorities, and professions in producing suitably qualified and equipped sanitation career-oriented graduates;

·         To diversify the University’s funding streams significantly, particularly the increase of 3rd stream income, in order to support the launching of new teaching and learning, research and community engagement activities.

BC2

Explain how the short course allows for progression into an existing University of Limpopo approved qualification, or whether credits can be given towards modules within a qualification on completion of the assessed short course.  Please specify details.

This short course allows for progression within the work environment

BC3

Explain how the short course fills a market need.

South African Municipalities are grappling with issues of poorly maintained wastewater treatment facilities and decent sanitation provision, thus putting Public Health of communities at crossroads and people/citizens are compromised. This short course will equip and empower the municipalities’ employees and administrators with Sustainable Sanitation and Water Management Tools for the 21st century in order for them to make sound decisions on water and sanitation matters, principles and policies.  In so doing, the course should enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of water and sanitation management.
