    Hi Des, We did an investigation and one of our staff members should be in contact with you around the SAQA Alert matter!

    Hi Joe

    I have signed for the SAQA alert so many time it has become tedious. For some unknown reason I receive for a few weeks and then delivery stops. I have given up trying

    Hi Sylvia,

    I am not sure why you were bumped off the SAQA Alert list. I will investigate and ensure that others like you are restored to their former status.

    Hi Joe,

    Thank you for your input.  I used to receive mails and somehow was dropped off the SAQA distribution.  I will re-register.  If there are a few of us with the details, then anyone who sees them first is free to post on the site.

    Hi Des, I posted the notice of the Level Descripors Roadshows on the Skills Universe and I also posted a link to the SAQA website. I was the one using the third source to get the message out. Please go onto the SAQA website and sign on for the SAQA Alert. In this way you will be ahead of the game. Regards Joe

    The advertising of the road shows was very poor and most of us heard about it via a third source – Skills Universe. I am sure the SETAS were aware of the road shows but as usual failed to advise their constituent providers. this is such a pity. Perhaps Joe could arrange to have some notes put on this site todether with a copy of the slide presentation. I am always available to assist if required.

    Unfortunately, we will only have time to do this in Gauteng. We have done the level descriptors roadshow in Cape Town already. @Sylvia the reason why it started late was due to flight delays outside of our control. I hope that the SAQA Staff was professional in conducting the workshop!

    I agree with Wilma – surely this should also be held in the Western Cape. 

    But if so, please make sure that the presenters are in Cape Town the night before or start mid-day – the Level Descriptors seminar scheduled to start at 09h00 was very unprofessional.

    Can’t this also be done in Cape Town?

    I am very interested in die simplication of the Quality Assurance System, because I think that this is one of the challenges that we are currently experiencing with the unit standards.  Verification and quality assurance processes involve a variety of unnecessary paper work.  The emphasis should be on the quality of the training.
