A model for providers
« on: August 28, 2015, 10:40:09 AM »
SAQA’s organising principle for the provider to ETQA relationship is a simple one-to-one relation. Namely, that the provider is accredited by one ETQA on the basis of primary focus.

Providers will need to ask themselves similar questions to those outlined above in order to identify the ETQA from which they should seek accreditation.

The first issue to be decided would be which ETQA sector the provider falls within and then which are the NQF registered standards or qualifications that it wishes to provide. This should indicate the ETQA to which the provider should apply. There may be some instances in which the indication is not as clear as it should be. The provider is then advised to approach SAQA for further guidance. Providers should note that even if they are multi-purpose providers for a range of standards and qualifications in different areas of learning, there will probably be a number of ETQAs involved in the ongoing accreditation and quality assurance of the institution, particularly in relation to the different learning programmes, courses and assessments on offer. To all intents and purposes this multiplicity of relations will not impact on the provider in that the accrediting primary focus ETQA will take the responsibility for organising the necessary evaluations and even site visits with all relevant parties.
