In follow-up to the posting on August 11, I would like to announce that the ETDPSETA has finally managed to evaluate my three levels of ABET Literacy programmes and has declared them APPROVED!
Even though I am very thankful to be able to continue with this line of business, I am convinced that the process to comply to the requirements should not be so energy draining and definitely should not take this much time and effort from the client-end to drive the progress. I will continue to raise my voice about the procedures until they are prepared to listen, as I believe that SETA staff should be made aware of the impact of their actions (or non-actions) in the business of a small provider and its facilitators. I refuse to accept that providers of integrity cannot be part of the solutions in current South Africa, both in effecting quality learning, but also in providing employment to graduates and experienced people.
I include my celebratory notice to all who has grit their teeth through my process!
