If you don’t understand how to set up the documentation for successful accreditation, how will you meet required standards (embedded in the documentation) once operational?
As a strategist in education and training I’m often approached by newbies and experts who ask these questions. One receives a serious response, the other a warning of retribution!
Here’s the simple version of the SETA accreditation process, extracted from Services SETA.
Accreditation seminars cover specific aspects of the legislated 8-core criteria for accreditation in addition to different Quality Councils requirements. The ‘Policy Strategy’ seminar covers the first criterion ‘Policy Statement.’
The opportunities funded by SETAs have increased. SETAs determine training and development needs required to meet scarce and critical skills in economic sectors. It seems that SETAs will play a greater role in providing funding for tertiary education programmes in 2017.
AgriSETA invites all AgriSETA STAKEHOLDERS to submit applications for skills development training in the Agricultural Sector.
It was clear that a seamless transition from SETA to QCTO would be miraculous. Hopefully, the SETAs and the QCTO will use the time to improve their policies around stakeholder engagement so that target markets can indeed become beneficiaries.
News is that SETAs remain till 2020. The funding window for applicants has been open since 12 December 2016. Stakeholders and legal entities who fall within the CATTHSSETA scope can apply.
