Become SETA Accredited: Training Provider Status

What is Accreditation?

Accreditation is the certification, usually for a particular period, of a person, body or institution. It means the bearer can fulfill a particular function within the quality assurance system set up by the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA). 

What is a SETA Accredited Training Provider?

A training or skills development provider is an education and training body that delivers NQF-registered learning programs. A training provider can take the form of an institution/organization, company, center, collaborative partnership, or consultancy.

The Primary Focus: Which SETA? 

You as the Skills Provider will determine your primary focus. The question is which qualifications do you expect to sell the most of? Is it IT or services-related? This information helps to decide where your primary focus lies.

The QCTO Quality Assurance Management Division requirements are compiled by the provider. You will complete and submit an online application form for accreditation. A compliance check is also conducted by the QCTO. The provider receives a notification of compliance / non-compliance. You then respond to the notification if necessary or perform the required remediation.

A site visit will be scheduled and conducted by a QCTO evaluator. The evaluator sends his/her report to QCTO. You are then required to respond to areas of remediation if necessary and make the relevant submission. Thereafter, confirm your registration with the DHET. 

What is a SETA Accredited Training Provider? 

A provider can be an education and training body such as an institution/organization, company, centre, collaborative partnership, or consultancy. A provider delivers learning programs that result in specific National Qualifications Framework (NQF) standards or qualifications.

Become SETA Accredited: Navigating the Requirements

1. For Freelancers and Qualified Staff:

  • To facilitate any program, obtain the US 117871 “Train the Trainer” Certificate (minimum NQF 5 level), approved by ETDP SETA.
  • For assessing learners with SETA work, acquire the US 115753 “Conduct Assessments” Certificate (at least NQF 5 level), also approved through ETDP SETA.
  • To moderate assessments, hold the US 115753 + US 115759 “Conduct Moderation” Certificate (at least NQF 6 level), approved through ETDP SETA.

Ensure you have the necessary “scope” to train, assess, or moderate anyone. Scope includes two to three years of practical experience or a certificate or higher in the specific field.

Freelancers can register independently or collaborate with Training Companies. Many Training Companies engage qualified Freelancers to deliver services.

2. Becoming an Accredited Training Provider:

To be an Accredited Training Provider, have at least one program SETA Accredited.

For each program, you must have:

  • A facilitator (hold US 117871 – Train the Trainer Certificates) with the required scope.
  • An assessor (hold US 115753 – Conduct Assessment Certificate) with the necessary scope.
  • A moderator (hold US 115753 – Conduct Moderation Certificate at least; Assessors Certificate required first).
  • Training content

Note: The facilitator and assessor can be the same person for the same learner, but the moderator must be different.

Companies often secure 2 x Facilitators and 2 x Assessors, contracting a Freelancer for Moderation work.

Accreditation requires resources, including an office, qualified staff, computers, tools, or a venue to deliver courses, and a Quality Management System (QMS) policy. The QMS should consist of 12 -18 policies explaining how you will operate.

Additional Steps:

  • Be registered with the DHET.
  • The “US 115753” Conduct Assessment provides an overview of the entire accreditation process.

In summary, meeting these requirements and following the outlined steps will set you on the path to becoming a recognized and accredited training provider in your field.
