Quality Assurance and Accreditation - SAQA Guidelines
« on: August 28, 2015, 10:33:28 AM »
The previous outline of the quality system for the NQF makes visible the holistic quality management system that is required for SAQA to realise its objective to enhance the quality of education and training.

The outline below focuses on the structures and processes that are required for the quality assurance system associated with the NQF. It is this outline that speaks directly to the continuum of quality assurance and quality management systems required for the accreditation, monitoring and auditing of ETQAs and providers. Furthermore, it is this quality assurance system that talks directly to the assessment of learners and learning achievements.

In quality terms, this cycle can be said to include all the critical points in the quality process:

• The product or outcome: awards; achievement of standards or qualifications; accreditation.
• The inputs: learning provision; programmes; learning and learner resources; life or experiential learning.
• The process: the quality of the learning and assessment interactions; the quality of the monitoring and auditing interactions.
