The NQF and the National Learners` Records Database (NLRD)
« on: July 25, 2015, 03:18:28 PM »
What is the National Learners` Records Database?

The South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) is responsible for the further development and implementation of the National Qualifications Framework (NQF). The primary objective of the NQF is the creation of a single integrated national framework for learning achievements, enhancing the quality of the education and training system in South Africa so that it embraces the concept of life-long learning for all.

One of the features of a quality system such as the NQF is the ability to manage and report information about the system accurately. The NLRD, which has been in operation since November 1999, is the electronic management information system that facilitates the management of the NQF and enables SAQA to report accurately on most aspects of the education and training system of South Africa.

The NLRD provides the following information:

    Qualifications and part qualifications (including unit standards) registered on the NQF, their purpose statements, exit level outcomes and assessment criteria, and the NQF sub-framework allocated to each qualification and part qualification;
    The twelve organising fields and the subfields of the NQF;
    Recognised professional bodies and their Professional Designations that are registered on the NQF;
    Quality assuring bodies , including Sector Education and Training Authorities (SETAs) and Quality Councils (QCs), and the qualifications and part qualifications for which accreditation has been granted;
    Accredited providers;
    Registered assessors;
    The records of learners who achieve qualifications or part qualifications registered on the NQF and their achievements[/li]

This information is not published on the SAQA website, but proof of qualifications achieved can be requested via SAQA`s Verification service: follow the links on the SAQA website or e-mail verifications@saqa.org.za

Most of this information is downloaded to the SAQA website in various ways, in detailed and summary format. Aggregated records and analyses of learner achievements are available via the NLRD`s publications.
