ETQA ASSESSOR AND MODERATOR AND QUALA UPDATE
The COVID-19 pandemic is causing enormous disruption to the lives of all South Africans including work in the Skills Development Sector. A challenge that currently faces the sector in this time of social distancing is the need for centres to apply for accreditation under SASSETA’s scope. This challenge also applies to applicants who have already submitted accreditation applications under SASSETA's scope.
The fact that no travel can take place during this lockdown period has serious implications for the accreditation visits and verification visits. Because of these restrictions, the following cannot be accommodated at this stage:
- New applications for accreditation
- New applications for assessor and moderator registration
- Request form for QALA/Verification
Be assured that the SASSETA ETQA is committed to finding flexible solutions to ensure that education and training continues with all applicable lockdown regulations. A guideline document will be circulated to accredited skills development providers. Please constantly refer to the SASSETA website for updates in this regard.
