    The concerns sent through to the DHET regarding Accredited Training Providers applying for registration, have been acknowledged today in writing by the new DHET Private Colleges Registrar. A meeting will be scheduled to address concerns raised. We will keep those whom are interested informed of the progress and solutions! A big thank you to Accredited Providers whom have supported us thus far!

    We will continue to support accredited providers with the application to register with the DHET. Should you have any further complaints or concerns that you would like to share with us, please don’t hesitate to email this to me. Email address is: Lynel.farrell@gmail.com

    We only have a short period to compile additional concerns, before we attend this crucial meeting with the DHET.

    Hey Lynel, indeed and at last! It has always been our intention to improve access to committed training providers to the DHET Registration process. Having dealt with hundreds of applications, we have been exposed to a number of obstacles which need to be brought in line with the training provider environment and circumstances. Any other issues can be referred to us for inclusion in the agenda of the DHET meeting. Nigel@jc1-2016.com

    Nigel, we have been working hard on getting solutions, and gathered so many concerns over the past year or so. No matter how small the provider, or how massive – there are concerns, and it is now time to work with the DHET in order to find suitable solutions, that will assist all providers (no matter the size or scope of the provider). The solutions will benefit providers nationwide. It has taken time to get to this stage, and we can make such a huge difference in this registration process. I must thank you for keeping me calm. We make a fantastic team, and the support we are receiving from providers nationwide, just shows that all the hours, weeks, months that we put into this, are all worth it.

    I was a bit concerned that DHET saw the concerns raised in the e-mail as a “complaint”. I wouldn’t classify the reporting of issues as a complaint, as in all our efforts we have been trying to accommodate both DHET and training providers in making the Registration process one of value and accessibility. Our team is supported by so many good people that it becomes difficult to withdraw from these efforts without severe regrets. We set out to achieve something and we will follow through on this. We complement each other and I couldn’t have wished for a better business partner!

    Please note, the meeting which is being arranged by DHET Management and JC1 ETD Consultants (Lynel Farrell and Nigel Shipston), will be to address concerns with the compulsory registration process for Accredited Providers (Skills Development Providers/Private Colleges). Our intention is to assist both DHET and Accredited Providers in order to facilitate an effective registration process. We are thankful that DHET Management have acknowledged our summary of concerns and are willing to work through the concerns in order to propose solutions. Various concerns have been sent to us, which we will address accordingly. We are excited to find solutions and guidance from the DHET Management team, which will benefit thousands of providers nationwide. We will keep you updated with the progress and outcome, in due course.
