Thank you Lynel & Adel,
Yes I am interested to see the alignment with the NSDP. To my mind it requires some rethinking of some of the qualifications – especially part qualifications.
Thank you Sylvia, very interesting to read. Looks like there is a huge clean up happening. Perhaps the legacy qualifications to be re-aligned to occupational qualifications will be next in line.

There are no hard fast rulels or regulations relating to how assessors indicate they have assessed each page or each question. Old school thinking was the use of diffeerent pen colours. As a verifier I look for an indication that the assessor has in fact checked each question and this is best done by means of coloured pens (red for assessor)…[Read more]

sylvia hammond replied to the topic ETDP Accreditation and QCTO in the forum Concerned Providers Interest Group – QCTO/SAQA/SETA 1 week, 5 days ago
Thank you for your response. In reading the 2022 date, two questions just occurred to me.
Are all the legacy qualifications expiring on the same date?
Are all the last enrollment dates therefore the same?
Is that regardless of the duration of the qualification?

I would suggest please contact Thomas Lata at QCTO directly.

Thanks Hunter – yes I absolutely agree.
Businesses are in the business of business.
They are not in the business of training.
So it is critical to be able to understand the business in order to integrate training and development to further the business – as well as the individual learners – and achieve transformation.
Thank you Carin, yes I agree.

Yes, I have missed you – glad you are back.

This morning, I visited the QCTO to deliver application for accreditation files. As always the receptionist was friendly and immediately assisted me.

The learning material is evaluated on the site visit by the Verifier/Evaluator – the matrix is evaluated in the application that is sent to the QCTO – but the learning material is not sent to the QCTO as part of the application (the matrix is required). What most providers don’t understand is the Curriculum document – why it is there, and how to…[Read more]
