The aim of this group is to assist upcoming, new or existing SDP with Accreditation with all SETA’s & the QCTO. New providers must understand the “know how”, accredited organisations should experience growth and maintaining of their accreditation status. The criteria or “building blocks” for new applications, extension of scope or maintaining your status is often unclear or difficult to understand for those who are new in the SDP environment or don’t have the resources to manage it accordingly. SDP often battle with SLA’s, resources, material alignment, audits, verifications from relevant setas etc. Let’s see how we can assist. From new applications, to marketing to obtaining funding if possible.

The purpose of creating this group is intended to help participants identify how to make the best use of time - and any habits they might need to break. Time Management and Personal Productivity begin with your commitment to change and is not difficult providing that you commit to action.

Often we find ourselves in a situation where we "run out of time" with so many things still to do. Therefore anyone who wants to share their knowledge and/or experiences or learn more about managing their time and thus improve their personal productivity is invited to join in the fun.

I have been on several of the QCTO scoping meetings pertaining to the design and development of the new occupational qualifications and there seem to be some confusion as to the process in developing these qualifications and in particular the role and function of the QCTO.

The implementation of the QCTO started in 2006 but as a result of operational problems the implementation was postponed to later and now are semi-functional with the core of quality assurance which is the main function delegated back to the respective SETA’s until the existing qualifications on the NQF have reached its expiry date/last date of achievement.  

I have however noticed that delegates have a lot of questions and due to time restraints full discussions in these types of meetings are not possible.

Does anyone have questions which we as a community are able to assist one another in clarifying?QCTO
