New NQF bill shame fake degree holders in South Africa
« on: November 20, 2016, 09:22:49 AM »
Higher Education Minister Blade Nzimande is promoting a new bill which will name and shame fake degree holders in South Africa, that was released on 18th of November 2016 and due for comment on the 18th of December 2016.

Nzimande has published the draft National Qualifications Framework Amendment Bill, which will make it compulsory for employers to verify the qualifications of their staff.

“All employers must refer qualifications of employees to the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) for validation and verifications,” the bill states.

The bill states that, if after SAQA has verified that a qualification is invalid, it must enter the name of the holder into a register and publish it on its website.

“The employer must include an acknowledgement form signed by the purported holder of the qualification to publish the outcome of SAQA verification in the public domain in the event of invalid qualifications presented to the employer.”
The bill further states that all education institutions and employers have a legal obligation to report fraudulent qualifications to SAQA.
