If you go on Services' website under ETQA documentation, you will see that you can apply for extension of your recorded status, but hurry, I think the deadline is Sunday. The Seta is also in the process of appointing a Provider to help everyone who is battling with the accreditation process. Contact Johan Delport and tell him you'd like help- I did, and he responded immediately!
Apparently the recorded status has been extended to March 2010. You should have got your letter - i only got mine two weeks ago!
If you do go onto the website and apply for accreditation, make sure that you upload ALL the sections. If you start and stop midway, IT DOES NOT SAVE ALL YOUR WORK.... and you have to start from the beginning the next time you go on site.
Hope this helps
If you attended last year workshop at Melrose arch you will know that recorded status and provision status with remidiation we under threat. It is not suprise to hear that is no applicable any more. Please call Mr Dlamini or Lerato from Service SETA for more information on what do with the learners.
