Please assist - with procedures for applications for extension of scope - via Sector Education and Training Authorities (SETAs).
I have been asked a question I can't answer - is the following correct?
When applying to a SETA for extension of scope, once the SETA has approved and processed all that is required - the application must be forwarded for final confirmation to the Quality Council for Trades and Occupations (QCTO).
The statement made is that this is causing an extensive delay.
Are any members able to confirm to me please:
* is this the correct description of the process?
* is there a delay in acquiring extension of scope, and as I understand that it has never been a fast process, is it now extended even longer than it was previously?
I will appreciate the experience of members - that is preferably actual experience, not just an opinion.
