QCTO Feedback from Sylvia Hammond (Skills Portal)

Dear Skills Universe Members,

Well, what a day this was.  Firstly I would like to thank each and every Provider/Individual that attended this QCTO Information Session – you really showed your true colours!  Well done Gauteng, you clearly showed the QCTO that you are respected businesses that are here to stay and want to engage with the QCTO.  I am so proud of you!

So what happened today?

The Agenda was:

  1. Introduction and Welcome by QCTO Chief Director Mr Thomas Lata
  2. Update on the QCTO Model
  3. Qualification Development
  4. Quality Assurance
  5. Certification
  6. Tea Break with lekker muffins and sandwiches/snacks
  7. Accreditation and Registration of Skills Development Providers (SDP)
  8. Roles and Responsibilities of Skills Development Providers
  9. Discussion – any provider to direct questions to the QCTO, whereby there is a panel of QCTO personnel attending to the questions.  This was an open forum – and every question was heard.  If you felt that your question was not dealt with accordingly or in a manner that you can understand, come talk to me, lets sort it out and get your answers!
  10. Closure

Various questions were asked, and providers were given the opportunity to get some answers.  The time was short to address all our concerns.  But please bear in mind that the QCTO response to our issues and concerns’ ETA is Monday the 30th January 2017.  We will also get all the slides from today and add them here for all of you to see.

There is one important issue that needs to be dealt with now, please Providers.  If you are an accredited provider (private not public), then you need to register with DHET before June 2017.  If you are offering legacy qualifications which are now occupational qualifications, please apply for accreditation at the QCTO – this is a matter of urgency.

I am still collecting all my thoughts and noting down as much as I can, and will continue to write reports on this session.  Please give me time to add all my notes!

To the QCTO, thank you for today.  Thank you for showing that you do care about the small providers, it is appreciated.  For the massive group of individuals that you had to face, you did fantastic.  Keep it up QCTO.

The draft bill aims to make it compulsory for all education institutions issuing qualifications to be registered and accredited to do so. Additionally qualifications and part-qualifications must be registered on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF), or must be recognised by the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) or any other foreign qualifications authority.

This follows reports of private education institutions awarding invalid qualifications.
The bill calls for employers to verify the qualifications of their employees. Fraudulent qualifications are to be reported to SAQA The authority will keep a record of the holder of the fake qualification. The bill also suggests a register of fake qualifications be kept.

The amended act is expected to make provision for the following:

  • A separate register for professional designations.
  • The formulation of evaluation criteria of foreign qualifications.
  • The establishment of a register of fraudulent qualifications.
  • Education institutions, employers and courts of law to report fraudulent qualifications.
  • For the establishment by SAQA of a register of misrepresented qualifications.
  • For employers to be obliged to refer qualifications of employees to SAQA for validation and verification.

Invalid qualifications include degrees, diplomas, or certificates which was “fraudulently obtained or awarded” and presented in good faith as being authentic, the bill states.
