I hear your point of view.
Personally, I have spent more decades in confrontational industrial relations than I have in skills development. So I am a negotiator. After every war the negotiators sit down to document the peace agreement.
I have found the DHET very prepared to listen to a reasoned approach, and constructive…[Read more]

The DHET have published for comment – by 17 December 2018 –
draft Regulations on the registration of artisans.
The registration will amongst other things – enable a complete register of all national and foreign artisans practising in SA, and also enable establishment of validity of their qualifications.

My understanding is that: all training/skills development providers, who are accredited to offer occupational qualifications, and part-qualifications (including single unit standards), that are registered on the NQF, are required to register their company with DHET.

Recent- media reports indicate that Government Departments will no longer require previous work experience for entry-level positions.
What a good opportunity for skills development providers to step up to the plate – how to induct a crop of young people, full of potential and probably already very tech savvy.
Anyone who…[Read more]

The deadline to submit applications to DHET for company registration by 30 November 2018 has been lifted.
Please don’t allow this to mean that you relax.
It is still necessary for all providers, who become accredited to provide occupational qualifications, or part qualifications, or even single unit standards – that are registered on the NQF…[Read more]

Hi Nigel and Lynel,
thanks for posting and I do agree about the circulating.
I have asked Alan to put in the Downloads section as well and to please distribute it via the skills portal.
The only problem I see is that without a further deadline so many people will just entirely ignore it again. So we do need to get the message out that all…[Read more]
Hi to all – just an additional thought – a while back when submitted a WSP to a SETA I had not used before, I had to apply to be the SDF on their form and wait to be accepted.
So it is always good to check with the SETA you are planning to submit to.

As all skills-u members will know I am passionately committed to the implementation of skills development. I believe it is one of the key pillars of redress.
Therefore, I try to support the departments and institutions responsible for implementation.
Please see attached the letter from DHET, which is apparently given to providers who have…[Read more]

Is your company registered with the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET)? I have been told that some providers think there is a choice between QCTO and DHET – and anyway they are accredited by a SETA. This is a dangerous misunderstanding.
The DHET is a government department in charge of with 3 quality councils, Umalusi for basic, C…[Read more]
