Higher Education and training


For discussion of all matters affecting universities, including universities of technology, and private institutions. That includes, policies on funding, student financial aid of all forms - including the National Student Financial Aid Scheme.

The SABPP’s role is to professionalise this function to ensure that HR becomes an increasingly recognized and respected profession. The Board is an accredited ETQA (Education and Training Quality Assurance body) under the SAQA Act and thus a statutory body.

The following is an article I received from Suzanne Hattingh, as she wasn't really sure where it should be posted on skills-universe. Her email generated a conversation & resulted in a decision to form this group - finally educed by the Cloete & van Schalkwyk article.

CHE (Council on Higher Education) should follow the UK example of programme accreditation by the professional bodies.

Hi to all.
Please remember to look for the tiny word Subscribe - and click there to ensure you receive updates from the group.

I have also set it up so that everyone is able to invite members, so if you have made a connection/friend, then you will be able to invite them.

Looking forward to some good posts in this group.

Whether or not we are parents or grandparents of a university or TVET college student, & have some knowledge about the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS), if we have watched any television news lately, we will be aware of tertiary students protesting.

What about, and why we don't always understand, and TV reports are usually a collection of sound bites, without in depth analysis.

So, to read last weeks article by Nico Cloete and Francois van Schalkwyk is to enter an entirely new level of understanding.
