    In my opinion RPL should be one of the key instruments for providing access to qualifications, and career advancement for people who were previously excluded from education and participation in the economy. So all these documents are important but only the start of the process of achieving redress.
    In 2016 DHET published a document – the RPL Coordinating Policy.
    SAQA had however been involved in RPL, had previously published a document on the Implementation of RPL in 2014.
    Now to bring the SAQA policy in line with the DHET policy, SAQA have now gazetted amendments to the SAQA policy – and are seeking comments.
    In July 2018 DHET appointed an RPL Reference Group.
    The documents are attached and I have asked Alan to upload the very large 2016 document into the Downloads section.
    It would be really good if we could now focus on Implementation and move past the bureaucracy.

    Dear Sylvia, we appreciate the information that you always bring to our attention and the advise for implementation. We mostly have these policies but fail to implement them.

    We must not forget that implementation for some of these policies such as certification of mechanics and auto electrician needs funding that is difficult to get in some provinces.

    Let’s roll our sleeves, put our shoulders to the wheel and help each other in ensuring that RPL wins.

      Hi Xolile,
      Yes, I agree with you – we need a focus on implementation.
