In this study the effectiveness of the NPDE programme with regard to its competences was investigated. To this end, the National Professional Diploma in Education Effectiveness Scale (NPD EES) and Evaluation Form (EF) were used. The findings indicated that educators differ significantly in the extent to which they regard the NPDE programme to be helping them to achieve the expected competences. The findings also indicated that components 2 and 1 of the exit level outcomes are significant predictors of the effectiveness of the NPDE programme. The findings further indicated that educators differ significantly in the extent to which they performed during the classroom-based evaluation. The findings are discussed and suggestions are made with regard to measures to improve educators' performance in the class room.
