QCTO: Questions and Answers

I have been on several of the QCTO scoping meetings pertaining to the design and development of the new occupational qualifications and there seem to be some confusion as to the process in developing these qualifications and in particular the role and function of the QCTO.The implementation of the QCTO started in 2006 but as a result of operational problems the implementation was postponed to later and now are semi-functional with the core of quality assurance which is the main function…See More

QMS guidelines for Accredited Providers

Quality Assurance and the implementation thereof should be conducted as per SAQA's core criteria for providers.  We read and understand that an accredited provider must:a Define and describe the purpose of the organisation, including a description of the vision and the vision of the provider.b Develop and document a quality management system (QMS), including policies and procedures for Programme delivery, staff, learners, assessment, review mechanisms in terms of the implementation of policies…See More

Hey Lynel,

Congrats, it all finally came together!  Sorry I have been so quiet, been hectic.  Since our last contact I have relocated up to JHB from Durban and am now working for one of the training providers in establishing ETQA processes.  Still haven't settled but getting there.  Will get back into everything soon.

Congratulations Lynel - I look forward to your future contributions - maybe you'd like to create a Verifier group? Regards sylvia

Hi Lynel,

I think that the majority of the problem stems from focussing on Assessor and Moderator registrations and not looking at the higher levels of ETD Practitioner in the QA process.  Originally there was a set of 4 unit standards under ETDP that covered Assessor, Moderator, Verifier and Evaluator.  Since that time, the assessor and moderator unit standards have changed, the verifier unit standard was allowed to end and the evaluator unit standard stays as it was.  To date, while Assessor and Moderator registrations try to reflect the requirements of the relevant unit standard, there seems to be no real initiative to apply similar registration criteria to the upper levels of ETD Practitioner.

 

I completed the Verifier programme while it was still valid in 2005, and the Evaluator programme back in 2007, using an actual exercise with a provider that was needing assisstance with achieving accreditation.  I am well aware of the shortcomings of ETQA Practitioners in terms of these programmes, and it has given me some insight into what providers need in these processes.  While it has taken some time, there is a market for these services and it is the one thing that I can be thankful to an ETQA for.

I dont believe you have made the wrong choice, as long as you believe that you can be successful.  In terms of making systems work, it is clear that it is up to the participants, and not the ETQA's, to apply the correct procedures and methods.   What you are doing is preparing yourself to do just this.  Give me a shout if you need anything.

Hi Lynel, The Learnership must relate to a qualification.  Go to the SAQA site, look for the qualification and that will list the unit standards.
