    The South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) has posted the details of the latest Board Statement.

    There are a number of items of interest:
    First – to the general tax paying population this is the 23rd consecutive time that SAQA has received an unqualified audit on the SAQA financial accounts to end March 2019 financial year.
    Maybe SAQA should be charged with training all the other non-compliant public entities.

    Then for training providers:
    – higher education qualifications that must be completed for alignment – from the 8 level to 10 level National Qualifications Framework (NQF)- by year end;
    – implications of the pending NQF Amendment Bill: qualifications that were never sent to SAQA 21 years ago, but the learners’ qualifications are registered, so they will be “misrepresented” with potential criminal charges;
    & many more
    – qualification-related issues of registration & de-registration, &
    – derecognition of professional body & designations.

    Please see attached the full – & very interesting details – well worth reading.

    Thank you Sylvia, very interesting to read. Looks like there is a huge clean up happening. Perhaps the legacy qualifications to be re-aligned to occupational qualifications will be next in line.

    Thank you Lynel & Adel,
    Yes I am interested to see the alignment with the NSDP. To my mind it requires some rethinking of some of the qualifications – especially part qualifications.
