"I agree Lynel, the SAQA unit standards are so old that many of them are now irrelevant but we still have to comply with them in order to retain accreditation! In other words "teach the wrong thing" and learners give evidence of learning…"

Info on the QCTO

Posted on June 18, 2010 at 9:48 3 Comments

I have heard rumours that small private training service providers are no longer going to be able to provide training according to the new National Skills Development Strategy and that this issue was tabled to be discussed in Parliament from the 14th until today (the 18th) of June. Does anyone have any clarity on this issue? Also will the QCTO now be in charge of the SETA's instead of SAQA? Who do we contact if we have problems with the SETA?
