Services SETA announcement: Re-registered Qualifications and Unit Standards 2

The following letter has been received from the Services SETA:

“18 August 2015

Dear Skills Development Providers

Re- Registration of Services SETA Qualifications and Unit Standards

This letter serves to inform Services SETA skills development providers that registered qualifications and unit standards which fall within the scope of Services SETA have been re- registered by the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA). Qualifications and unit standards which expired on 30 June 2015 have been re -registered for a further three (3) years.

This means that qualifications and unit standards which expired on 30 June 2015 will be re-registered with a new expiry date of 30 June 2018. The last date of enrolment for these qualifications and unit standards is 2019-06-30 and the last date of achievement has been changed to 2022-06-30. This re-registration period allows for the development of new occupational qualifications which will replace currently registered qualifications. Currently registered qualifications will gradually be phased out once new occupational qualifications are developed and registered by SAQA.

Please note that where qualifications have not received a new registration end date and the qualification has been reviewed and changed, skills development providers are required to re-apply for accreditation of their learning programmes aligned to the new qualification.

NB: Where providers are applying to offer skills programmes or single unit standard, please ensure that those unit standards have not expired.

For more information please do not hesitate to Contact Service Seta Registrar Dept.on Tel: 011 276 9600.

Kind Regards
Nozipho Zondo

    Re-registration of qualifications

    05 June 2015

    Every three years, all qualifications that are currently registered on the NQF are considered for re-registration. This consideration has been in progress for several months now, as per the decision of the SAQA Board in October 2014 to approve, with certain exceptions, the re-registration of all currently registered qualifications for the period from 1 July 2015 to 30 June 2018.

    These exceptions are:

    • Qualifications that have been reviewed and replaced by new qualifications will not be re-registered.
    • Qualifications that do not meet the SAQA requirements for registration will not be re-registered. The Quality Councils have been consulted concerning these qualifications.
    • Qualifications that are no longer offered by the relevant providers, and that have no students currently enrolled on them, will not be re-registered.

    All qualifications and part-qualifications can be access on the link:

    This is excellent news and a responsible decision. I will use it as the foundation of an article, which I will write over the coming weekend.
