Hi Lizeth – that is a good idea.
I have sent an email to see if we can get copies – or whether they are going to post on QCTO site, then I can circulate the URL links.

Yes, I picked this up yesterday on a WatsApp group.
So if I understand it correctly, CHIETA will be using an entirely different software system.
I cannot imagine how much money has been wasted by individual SETAs deciding to utilise different software.
Does this software integrate more effectively for reporting to the…[Read more]

sylvia hammond started the topic Durban Seminar Invitation Internationalisation & Tech in PSET in the forum APPETD Association for Private Providers of ETD 3 weeks ago
The Association of Private Providers of ETD (APPETD) is repeating the seminar in Durban – a very impressive list of presenters and well worth attending.
Please see attached Invitation for booking details and
programme for explanation of speakers and content.
Thanks Marchall – agree.
Recently I was asked to comment on the NSDP 2030.
My opinion is that we have the structures to implement skills development, but the parties need to develop respect for each other, and for their different contributions, in order to work together successfully.
The Quality Council for Trades & Occupations (QCTO) will be running a radio awareness programme in the coming week – please diarise for whenever you can make it.
See attached for programme calendar.
I suggest also have a look at our sister Portal Publishing site –
The Association of Private Providers of Education Training & Development (APPETD)- in collaboration with the Council for Higher Education (CHE), have arranged a workshop for private providers.
An impressive range of speakers will address a range of issues, including the Integrated Quality Assurance Framework (IQAF), and issues of accreditation…[Read more]
I could not agree more. I am innundated with queries from assessors and moderators who have completed training, been declared competent and who still do not know how to register as assessors or moderators. In addition they have not been told they must be subject matter experts in order to register. It is actually disgusting to say the least. How…[Read more]
thanks for your post – I think some training companies are really going to be made at this comment but I can’t help wondering whether there is a bit more required after the training.
I have had questions from people who have attended assessor training, and don’t know what to do next – what SETA to contact – etc.

Hi Lynel, once again well said and yes I agree it i time these people got their fact right.
I notice the department are still saying

The National Qualifications Framework (NQF) Amendment Act, has been published.
We have been waiting for a while for this amendment act.

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.
The South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) has posted the details of the latest Board Statement.
There are a number of items of interest:
First – to the general tax paying population this is the 23rd consecutive time that SAQA has received an unqualified audit on the SAQA financial accounts to end March 2019 financial year.
