Thank you for the article Des. I am currently 2 years into the Training Provider Accreditation process. 2 weeks ago I received feedback from a private organization with results on my accreditation P.O.E, they required me to resend my assessors and moderators registration docs as they stated my assessors and moderators were not registered for the qualification I am applying for, however, they are both registered for a level higher of the same qualification. My understanding was that if as an assessor you are registered for Business Administration NQF 3, you are allowed to assess for the same qualification on the levels below? Is this not the case?
I am trying to get feedback from this company, but they do not respond to my emails, or answer their phones.
This is such a challenging process, and trying to find new assessors and moderators on such short notice has been equally as challenging, as they are weary of organizations just using them to obtain accreditation, not realizing that I intend to work with them once we have been accredited.
Anyway, if anyone could help with my above query, that would be great!
Hi Ali. It is correct that you may assess / moderate for the same qualification on the levels below. However, this is not automatic – when you apply to the SETA for registration, you must state in your application that you are applying for the qualification for all 3 levels. If you only requested registration for level 4 for example, you would not automatically be awarded registration for the Levels 3 + 2 & therefore would not be allowed to assess/moderate Level 3 & 2.
