    I have found 3 colleges on the QCTO latest list of 31 March 2019). Whom DHET gave accreditation and centre number ( as far as 2014)but do not appear on their latest list of 28 May 2019.

    These colleges risk been called fly by night yet they are not.

    Accreditation is issued by the QCTO, but registration is issued by the DHET. The question here is whether these colleges are public or private (are they state owned?)

    The colleges are private owned.

    If the colleges are private entities, and have accreditation with either SETA and/or QCTO, they need to apply for registration to the DHET (this is not done automatically). If these colleges were on the DHET’s Registered list, and no longer appear there, it might be that the colleges did not submit their compulsory annual report submission to the DHET. If these colleges did comply with their annual report submissions and are not listed, it could be that they were found non-compliant (whereby the college is given 14 working days to submit the required documents) If this was not done, then the private college will loose their registration and have to start from scratch again: apply for registration.

    Colleges are accredited with QCTO for N4-N6. Singling out one, which was accredited in 2017 August and registered registered BY DHET same year(and has ran 7 exam sittings already) , it still doesn’t appear on the updated DHET list. So my point is… if students refer to the DHET list, they won’t find it.

      If the college is not on the Registered list, then the college needs to address this with the DHET (if they were registered and not seen on the register list) – perhaps they applied for registration and are on the List of applicants.

    As I said, they have a DHET registration number and exam center number… and have alre conducted 7 exam sittings. successfully but still don’t appear on DHET list.

    As you say, they should take it up with DHET. Will advise them.
