How Learning Programmes are developed, delivered and evaluated for Accreditation

Your Quality Management System for Training Delivery must include policies and procedures for the development, design and delivery of learning interventions.

Catch our Programme Delivery and Market Expectations seminar for more on this.

Accreditation Criteria 4: Learning Programme Delivery

Programme Delivery and Accreditation

Programme management is a core criterion for Accreditation and should specify the following:

How programmes would be developed – delivered – evaluated.

Differences between Accredited and Not-for credit programmes

The features of Accredited training

  1. Competency standards
  2. Aligned to qualifications on the NQF
  3. Assessment plans
  4. Moderation
  5. External verification by SETA
  6. Learner results entered into NLRD

Unaccredited training features

Factors that impact on occupational training

We must understand the learning environment in which the learning will take place:

  • NQF standards
  • codes of practice
  • legislation (industrial relations, OHS obligations)
  • Organisational OHS policies and procedures
  • Business or industry knowledge specific to the training
  • Our own training packages, their competencies and the qualification rules on SAQA.co.za

  6. Any other key stakeholders

Thanks Leonie Hall for the wonderful workshop that really assisted me with all the basics of accreditation with SETAs as service provider, Assessor, Facilitator and/or Moderator. I have acquired much information that gave me so many resources needed in the skills training and development industry.
