If we look at the Gazette No. 44031 published on the 24th December 2020: National Qualifications Framework Act, 2008 (Act No. 67 of 2008) – Determination of the Sub-Frameworks that comprise the National Qualifications Framework (signed off by Minister Dr Nzimande) it clearly states on page 35:
IMPLEMENTATION AND TRANSITIONAL ARRANGEMENTS
PRE – 2009 Qualifications (Under the SAQA Act, 1995)
13. The registration end date for Pre-2009 qualifications and unit standards on the OQSF shall be 30 June 2023.
The question now is, why does the the Legacy Qualifications not reflect this date? Did SAQA have a system issue, and not realise it, or do we all understand this gazette wrong. The only body that can change the date is SAQA.
