"Very good discussion Hannes and all very relevant.  The whole QCTO idea was a very good on but as with everything else in South Africa - poorly executed!  I look forward to hearing comments on your post :) "

"Absolutely spot on!  Learning material can in fact make or break an intervention, your "brand", your reputation, your funds ..................... sometimes the easy way out is not the best way.  Act now, think long term!"

I was in the Services Seta Chamber for Project management for 5 years.  I then discovered that PM is a 2nd career choice which persons make when they are tired of their current environment / work.
Seta is not serious about PM, and therefore treats it like a Sunday school class.

I am associated to the Intl PM Association (IPMA) through APMSA.  APMSA resolved to offer PM courses because what is learned at the uni are just USA handbooks summarised in PowerPoint.  There is no new knowledge being created and the research topics are not adding insights.  IPMA has a competence framework.  When SA uni persons are tested against the framework, then they succeed with 40%.  The Unit Stds may be covered but the framework is far more complete.

Therefore APMSA resolved to register a college and register programmes at certificate and diploma levels now and later B and M degrees.  The programmes will be for Project Management (focus on management) and Project Support Services (focus on methods and converting data into information).

Visit www.ipma.ch and www.apmsa.org.za for background information.

I am starting / registering a college in Project management and has developed a Study Guide of about 400 pages.  Could you bring value to the table.?

Hi Charlene, the ABET Level 4 is with the ETDPSETA but you have to go via your primary seta and apply for the full qualification there so that it is easy for you to upload learners. If you go for the three unit standards that are with your seta, you will not be able to offer the full qualification certificate.

Hi Charlene

RE Accreditation at ABET Level 4 - sadly it still differs from SETA to SETA currently. although it should be a simple, standardized process. Your primary SETA needs an MoU with the SETA with which you seek new programme approval for the new programme you want to offer. If you are already accredited then you need not go through the whole process again - hence an MoU. But..............................not always! You are welcome to email me with details - paula@eee.co.za. We have Programme Approval with 7 SETAs and I can maybe just lead you to the relevant people/process to save some time!  0861 TRIPLE / paula@eee.co.za / Triple E Training.
