The training programme is based on the concept and principles of competence. Competence encompasses the ability to perform work tasks and activities within an occupation or function to the standards expected in employment.
It was developed based on the Qualification Standard for a Domestic Housekeeper. The development of the Qualification Standard was in line with the requirements of the Zimbabwe National Qualifications Framework(ZNQF). Qualification Standards describe what competent workers should be able to ‘DO’ in the workplace, and the expected standards of performance.
The learning philosophy of the programme takes a gender-sensitive, learner-centred approach, and includes practical orientation, simulation of industry practices and the involvement of industry in the development and implementation of the training programme.
In order to make the curriculum demand-driven and sustainable, a participatory approach was adopted by engaging key stakeholders in the curriculum development process
