Theuns Laubscher replied to Samantha Schwenk's discussion Informal training providers vs SETA training providers
"Hi Ezra The best way for a student to confirm accreditation is through the SETA - at the moment it's an accreditation letter from the SETA listing the courses that you may offer. Unfortunately, the DHET is still telling the public that all…"

Theuns Laubscher replied to Samantha Schwenk's discussion Informal training providers vs SETA training providers
"Herewith my understanding of the issue (based on formal legal opinion): 1. The NQF Act, FET Colleges Act and the HE Act in very general terms regulate the formal education and training environment, which essentially comes down to the provision of…"

Theuns Laubscher replied to John P Connolly's discussion Close down the SETAs
"Thanks, Des. I'm sure each one of us has a list of things or a silver bullet that we would like to see changed in order to create more artisans and skilled people that can help drive the economy and support their families. The one thing…"

Theuns Laubscher replied to John P Connolly's discussion Close down the SETAs
"Thanks, John, for starting this valuable (and often emotion-laden) topic. I think we all feel passionate about the future of education, and we may have our differences about whether the current system is the best one to get us to that future. I…"

Theuns Laubscher replied to sylvia hammond's discussion Education standards: are we undervaluing our children? in the group Basic and Higher Education
"Thanks Zerelde for this informative link. I'd like to add a few comments: 1. In my opinion, the issue of the drop-out rate during the FET phase (Grade 10 to 12) is contentious and cannot simply be linked to poor education in the previous years…"

Theuns Laubscher replied to Bernard Botha's discussion Joint comunique 1 of 2012: Answer to the maidens prayer or start of chaos? in the group Basic and Higher Education
"Just a follow-up to my previous mail.   I see on the SAQA homepage that the rotating advertisement at the top of the page for the NQF and Career Advice helpline advises students as follows: "To secure your future career pathway TODAY,…"

Theuns Laubscher replied to sylvia hammond's discussion Education standards: are we undervaluing our children? in the group Basic and Higher Education
"Hi Sylvia The pass percentages for each subject have not been published by the DoBE for 2012. I think the last year that all subject pass rates were published were 2010. The DoBE only published the comparative results of the Top 11 most popular…"

Theuns Laubscher replied to Bernard Botha's discussion Joint comunique 1 of 2012: Answer to the maidens prayer or start of chaos? in the group Basic and Higher Education
"Hi Bernard I posted the reply below in another forum. A joint clarification is probably not going to happen. Besides the notice published by the Minister referred to below, I have seen two articles written by journalists that still say…"

Theuns Laubscher replied to Hannes Nel's discussion Feedback on urgent meeting for Private FET Colleges by the DHET
"Hi Sylvia This is just an update on the issue regarding the Joint Communique of 2012 and the deregistration of private FET providers that do not offer Umalusi qualifications. I see in today's New Age newspaper is a message to the Matric Class…"

Theuns Laubscher replied to Hannes Nel's discussion Do Higher Education Institutions Facilitate Job Creation?
"Thanks Dr Nel for this post. I believe private education (and specifically private Higher education) is one step ahead of the public sector in this regard. The way I see it, you are addressing 2 key issues, namely (1) job creation, and (2)…"

Theuns Laubscher replied to Hannes Nel's discussion Feedback on urgent meeting for Private FET Colleges by the DHET
"Hi Carla. Thanks for your input. I agree that the intention is an interim solution. However, the result is that FET providers are being asked to deregister themselves in (arguably) contravention of the FET Colleges Act and Regulations. Surely a…"

Theuns Laubscher replied to Hannes Nel's discussion Feedback on urgent meeting for Private FET Colleges by the DHET
"Hi Hannes. Thanks for your summary. I also attended and agree with you regarding some inappropriate behaviour or attitude from some providers. I also agree that Dr Buthelezi always deals with whatever comes his way in a very professional and…"
