Accreditation

What is SASSETA’s approach to accreditation?
This section provides a brief overview of the SASSETA’s approach to the accreditation of education and training providers. It is clear that the more familiar you are with your SETA’s approach to accreditation, the easier the whole process will be for you. It is perhaps also worth mentioning that the SASSETA has a developmental approach to providers. Read more...

Background to the accreditation process
In its widest sense, the term ‘‘accreditation’’ refers to the act of giving an individual or an organisation formal recognition of some sort or another. Read more...

SASSETA accreditation and related legislation and structures
Providers in many of the industries within the SASSETA primary focus are also governed by legislation and concomitant regulations relevant to that particular sub-sector. Read more...

Kinds of accreditation
The SASSETA offers both different levels as well as different categories of accreditation, based on the provider’s aims and criteria. One of the implications of this is that new providers will find it easier to get going — it’s not a simplistic pass/fail situation but rather a system of continual growth and development.

Categories of provider accreditation
As indicated, there are two levels of accreditation — full and provisional accreditation. These are a measure of the extent to which providers are able to meet certain criteria. However, as a provider, you may also choose the category of accreditation that you wish to acquire. The category of accreditation relates to what it is that you are offering learners. Read more...

What needs to be done to apply?
This final section outlines the steps that you will be required to follow when becoming accredited. This section is both to assist you to understand what you will be required to do to become accredited but also to allow you to monitor the work of the ETQA in terms of what it is required to do to facilitate your accreditation.

De-accreditation of providers
This section explores the activities that will be involved where a provider must be de-accredited by the SASSETA ETQA. It is obvious that this is a step that the SETA ETQA would like to avoid, and for this reason emphasis has been placed on ensuring that the accreditation process is thorough and that there is unlikely to be a need to de-accredit a provider.

Important definitions
Assessment is the process of gathering and weighing evidence in order to determine whether or not learners can demonstrate outcomes specified in unit standards and/or qualifications registered on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF). Assessors are those individuals who are appropriately qualified to plan and conduct learner assessments against the requirements of the NQF. Read more...
