    Two thoughts that struck me while reading this:
    1. Why do QCTO accredited learning institutions, like Mentornet, not receive the invitation directly from QCTO?
    2. Should Sylvia and Skills Universe not take over the functions and management of APPETD, because they should provide services like this, not so?

      Dear Hannes,
      Thank you I take that as a compliment. I am really not sure from where and how the bodies create their mailing lists.
      I gather information from a range of social networks: Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn, a great deal from ASDSA, and PMG, a range of departments and SETAs, who have added me to their list such as DEDAT and WC provincial government, and a range of news and other websites. I do sometimes receive info from APPETD.
      I would think that relevant professional bodies registered with SAQA should form the basis of appropriate mailing lists. I remember that the last time I checked professional bodies, Mentornet was registered as a professional body.

      Hi Lebo,
      See the two attachments. One is the Invitation. At the bottom it has an email and a telephone number to make contact with the QCTO. I would suggest make contact there.

    I opened the attachment – there is only one page with dates and no contact email.

    The official telephone number for QCTO is 012-003-1800, but you use that number at your own risk as the switchboard is no longer attended and the QCTO uses a system whereby any free extension is supposed to answer the incoming call. Nobody does and inevitably it goes to voice mail – where the mailbox is full.

    Communicating with them is an exercise in futility. As to Hannes’ comment: SELA!

      Thanks for that Bernard – I have asked one of the attendees at tomorrow’s meeting with DHET to raise the issue – and also forward a copy to the QCTO CEO.

    Thx Bernard
    Let us see whether anything comes out of tomorrow’s meeting with DHET.
    It is totally unacceptable that a public service is not readily contactable by the public – especially since it is funded by our SDL payments.

    I just phoned the QCTO switchboard number Bernard gave and was answered within 3 rings by a friendly voice! Maybe just my lucky day. She said the switchboard is fully functional.

      Thank you Suzanne.
      I did forward the post to Vijayen Naidoo earlier. Maybe just co-incidental.

    Suzanne,

    Thanks, maybe it is my bad day. So I wish to withdraw that comment unconditionally.

    Sylvia,

    I did not mean to get your email address in the public domain – you can reply to bothabe@telkomsa.net and I will forward the email.

    Bernard
