Hi to members,
I have revived this Gauteng discussion group so that members in Gauteng and those travelling to attend meetings and workshops – like the QCTO Symposium – can make arrangements to meet up.
You can find the details of the QCTO Symposium in the QCTO discussion group – on this…[Read more]
As soon as I hear about the venue/s – I will post.
I have also reinstated the Gauteng members discussion group – I will feature it now – so that the Gauteng member can coordinate getting together.
Good morning to skills-universe members,
One of the downsides of our community site growing is that it becomes more visible to people who don’t have skills development in mind. We have had a plague of applications from spam type applications, and our technical expert has been hard at work excluding them.
If we have missed anyone and you are…[Read more]
This is another opportunity for the skills-universe members in the Gauteng region – and those able to travel to the region – to get together in person.
Please, we would also appreciate volunteers to give our members feedback on the meeting.
South Africa needs to address the triple challenge of poverty, inequality and unemployment. The cohort of persons not in Employment,Education and Training (NEET) is increasing at a rapid rate.
The QCTO 2019 symposium theme is: “Skills Development for Livelihood and Employment”
If you are able to contribute to this discussion please see the…[Read more]

Thank you Debbie – good to hear from you – although in difficult circumstances.
I would strongly agree with Lynel. I know that you are an extremely experienced and competent ETD practitioner.
It appears that the SETA with which you you are working are unwilling/unable to engage with you and ensure that relevant legacy qualifications are being…[Read more]

Thank you Xolani and Lynel – Employees are definitely entitled to fair labour practices.
If performance is such an issue in the SETAs and there are HR people in the SETAs – do they influence and manage performance delivery?

Thank you for the clarification Lynel – that has been my concern – that there are questions about how the people matters are being handled.
On your last question – my understanding is that as stakeholders we have certain constitutional rights – to be consulted – and to fair administrative action. So the 23rd will definitely be an interesting day.

Thank you Lynel and Des,
One thing that I am not clear on – if it’s there I am missing it – please tell me.
What is the plan for the people? From an industrial relations perspective:
Is the plan for all of the SETA QA people to move across to the QCTO? that looks like a transfer as a going concern of a part of a business.
If so will there…[Read more]

The DHET has sent a request to the SETA chairpersons and CEOs requesting “inputs and comments on the QCTO plan of revoking quality assurance functions delegated to SETAs”.
In the letter the DHET “strongly advices (sic) all SETAs to engage with their respective stakeholders in order to ensure that their inputs and comments are furnished and…[Read more]

Thank you Des, I agree as I don’t see anything indicating that participants must be SA citizens or residents. So if they can make a contribution I believe we should welcome it.
sylvia hammond started the topic Can SDPs living in another country retain registration status? in the forum Training Service Providers 1 week, 2 days ago
I have been asked a question I cannot answer:-
can an SDP who is registered, and accredited for facilitation, and who is also a qualified assessor – retain their status if they move out of South Africa?
As I understand they would be resident outside the country, but are still interested in making a contribution to the implementation of skills…[Read more]

Good morning & welcome to our community.
If you click on Discussion Groups, and then look for two groups – Concerned Providers and also Training Service Providers, you will find discussions related to your question.
Also posting in the discussion groups with the largest number of members is more likely to bring a response to your question.
Thank you for your response.
I am sorry that you and Tando have this dispute, however I do believe that other providers and facilitators can learn from your experience.
I do hope that you and Tando can successfully resolve your dispute in the new future.
sylvia hammond replied to the topic Goodbye 2018, and Hello 2019! in the forum Concerned Providers Interest Group – QCTO/SAQA/SETA 3 weeks ago
Thank you for your good wishes and thank you for your commitment to skills development.
Let’s hope that 2019 will be a successful skills development implementation year.
Thank you Tando, I appreciate your quick response.
I read and responded to your private message before I saw that you had responded to the posting – as I suggested.
I am sure that other members will appreciate your comment on the value of an SLA.
Thank you. sylvia
Thank you for posting. I have sent a private message to Tando requesting that he settle the matter immediately, otherwise I will delete his membership of skills-universe.

Thanks for expanding upon the defnitions –
please clarify –
what does secondary accreditation mean?
And why does it refer to Learning Programme approval?
