    Dear Skills Universe Members, SMME Providers, Close Corporations and all those whom have been concerned of the lack of awareness and guidance on this compulsory application for registration to the DHET. We have listened to you, and we have in fact submitted the major concerns to the Minister of Education on the 10th May 2017 at 08:26AM.

    We have made this submission on the part of all training providers, and particularly Close Corporations, who are being put at risk by the DHET Registration requirement of 10 years ago, and are not being accepted for Registration.

    This is an urgent matter that could place thousands of private training providers, employees and learners at risk. We have requested that the Minister of Education: Dr Blade Nzimande consider our submission in order to bring relief to a stressful situation and further the critical goals of Education, Training and Development in our land.

    We thank the all those that have shown interest and support in this journey, and will report back on the outcome. Please don’t stop supporting this important issue at hand, we could all benefit by contributing our thoughts and support to these businesses.
    Thanking you for your support

    Thank you so much guys for the hard work, the report is quite detailed and it really addressees all our concerns as Close Corporations. We just hope the Minister will have a solution for us.

      Hi Siphiwe,
      Thank you for your support!
      The DHET have already implemented processes to alleviate the situation, and obviously they would not have done this without the Ministers knowledge or approval. This is quite a substantial matter to consider and will obviously take some time to formulate according to legal principles, but clearly the Minister is prepared to consider the situation in a positive light.

      The changes include accepting CC’s, accepting Financial Statements according to the criteria of the Companies Act 2008 and various other exemptions based on the operation of individual providers.

      Having been a part of this process from the January announcement, I can assure all providers that the current requirements are not beyond your means as the original requirements may have been. DHET are even prepared to re-evaluate applications processed before 12 June 2017, on request from the provider.
