Withdrawal of Accreditation Status
The Services SETA Education, Training and Quality Assurance (SSETQA) have come to a decision to withdraw the accreditation status of DITASA, due to non-compliance with the accreditation criteria.
As an SSETQA body accredited by the South African Qualification Authority (SAQA) to performing all quality assurance functions with regards to the implementation of learning programmes that fall within the scope of the services sector, it is imperative that the Services SETA withdraw the accreditation status of DITASA in an effort to protect public.
Note to Editor:
SAQA defines accreditation as:
“The certification usually for a particular period of time, of a person, a body or an institution as having the capacity to fulfil a particular function in the quality assurance system set up by the South African Qualifications Authority.”
Accreditation is awarded to providers who offer outcomes-based learning programmes aligned to the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) registered unit standards and qualifications.
