Outcomes based education holds the following key beliefs about learning and success:
What and whether learners learn successfully is more important than exactly when, how and from whom they learn it.

10. What are critical cross field outcomes (CCFO’s)?
Critical Cross-field Education and Training Outcomes describe the qualities which the NQF identifies for development in students within the education and training system, regardless of the specific area or content of learning i.e. those outcomes that are deemed critical for the development of the capacity for life-long learning.

Work effectively with others as a member of a team, group, organisation, community;
Organise and manage oneself and one’s activities responsibly and effectively;
