The Public Service Sector Education and Training Authority (PSETA) ETQA will be conducting workshops in five provinces where they will capacitate Public FET Colleges, accredited providers as well as non-accredited providers with PSETA accreditation. The main objective of this project is to increase the provider base in order to improve learner intake for PSETA qualifications.
PSETA has registered 26 qualifications with SAQA which are addressing the Public sector skills needs. As a requirement by SAQA, all registered qualifications should be linked to accredited providers, leading to learner uptake. The PSETA is rolling out an accreditation capacity building project in 5 identified Provinces (Limpopo, N/West, N/Cape, KZN, and Free State) as a pilot, aimed at the following beneficiaries:
• Public FET Colleges
• Accredited providers
• Non-accredited providers who showed interest in getting PSETA accreditation
The beneficiaries will be capacitated on the following programmes;
1. Assessor Training (the beneficiary must be a subject matter expert in one of the PSETA qualifications)
2. Moderator Training (the beneficiary must be a qualified assessor and a subject matter expert in one of the PSETA qualifications)
3. Quality Management System (QMS) Design and Implementation
4. Mentoring and Coaching
5. Design outcomes-based learning programmes
Every organisation will be assisted to compile and submit an accreditation file or programme approval to the PSETA ETQA.
