    I have been following the reporting on Skills Portal regarding the engineering exam irregularities with great dismay.

    This is not the first time results have been withheld by the DHET due to irregularities (and “leaked” exam papers), and sadly it seems like it won’t be the last. FET Colleges are so very crucial to our country and the DHET is contributing enormous financial resources  into this sector, but still we have colleges which do not make the grade.

    Purposeful and direct intervention by the DHET is long overdue – these colleges must be called to account because there is much these colleges can do to minimise such irregularities.

    I would be interested in hearing what the rest of this group thinks.

    I overheard an interesting conversation with a person that was employed at an FET college  it was revealed that a exam papers could be bought at the college. There was a time delay of 1 hour from the time the exam was written until the papers had to be sent off. A 3rd party  wrote the exam obo of the student and the necessary changes were done in that hour. Everything had a price.

    it is embarassing they way this matter is being treated, no one is taking responsibility in the DHET. The DDG for VCET branch must share with us of how is gonna deal with these challenges of the FETC sector, it is almost Six years without issuing of certificates and diplomas, it is not the very first time the axam papers leaked, NEHAWU shopstewards has been raising these ill responsibility and maladministration and in return they were charged and expelled. The department managed to put number of FET Colleges under administration through NEHAWU shopstewards. number of these culprits are still in the system. Our conclusion is that we need the DDG VCET that will support the Minister’s vision not the current one, she will never assist the country to achieve its National Development Goal.
