CRITERIA AND GUIDELINES ON ACCREDITATION OF SKILLS DEVELOPMENT PROVIDERS (SDPs)

1. CRITERIA AND GUIDELINES IN CONTEXT

This document aims to outline the criteria and guidelines for the accreditation of SDPs. The objective is to ensure that the accreditation system is simplified for all stakeholders concerned.

The accreditation is valid for five years from the date the QCTO grants accreditation or until the SDP is de-accredited by the QCTO.
Accreditation of the SDP may be withdrawn by the QCTO if the SDP fails to perform its responsibilities as stipulated in the QCTO Accreditation Policy.
In accrediting skills development providers the QCTO focusses on two parts namely:

  a) Institutional compliance
  b) Programme delivery readiness

The two parts must be in place before the accreditation is issued.

Any person/organization /institution/ may apply for accreditation as a Skills Development Provider.
A non – refundable application fee of R750.00 is payable to the QCTO on submission of the application for accreditation.
