"SDPs are no longer required to lodge applications for registration with Department as private colleges or private higher education institutions as contemplated in the Joint Communiqué 1 of 2016;"

DHET list of Private Skills Development Providers, dated 28 January on their website states:

"Previously the private SDPs could not be registered with the Department because the Skills Development Act (SDA), 1998 (Act No. 97 of 1998), as amended, in its current form does not provide for registration of SDPs but requires them to be accredited in order to operate legally in South Africa. In order to fulfil the provision of Section 29(3) of the Constitution, a Joint Communiqué 1 of 2016: The Registration and Accreditation for Private Education Providers Offering Qualifications and Part-Qualifications on the Occupational Qualifications Sub-Framework was promulgated in October 2016. This Joint Communiqué calls on all SDPs to lodge their applications for registration as private colleges with the Department of Higher Education and Training."
