PIVOTAL list South Africa Education
« on: August 20, 2015, 12:58:24 PM »
PIVOTAL stands for Professional, Vocational Training and Academic Learning.

Every year each company submit (suppose to submit) their yearly statistics related to a) training completed, b) planned training for the next year and c) list of their scare and critical skills. We call these reports they submit: WSP (Workplace Skills Plan - 12 months planned training) and ATR (Anual Training Return - training completed the past 12 months).

The different SETA's consolidate this information and then submits its top 10 priority skills (compiled from the submissions above). This list is referred to as the PIVOTAL list (short for Professional, Vocational Training and Academic Learning). This list is one of the sources of information used to inform the top 100 list of Occupations in High Demand that is published annually by the Department of Higher Education and Training. This is used differently by various stakeholders but its main purpose is to inform planning.

In short, the Pivotal List, also referred to as table consist out of the following:
1. Consist out of the Scare and Critical Skills of the SETA. (As identified by the companies/stakeholders in that sector)
2. Contribute to full qualifications. (With the aim of achieving a higher level, not just filling gaps.)
3. Additional criteria set by the different SETA's in order to achieve their targets.

PIVOTAL Programme

According to the SETA Grant Regulations, Government Gazette No. 35940 of 3 December 2012, PIVOTAL is an acronym that refers to professional, vocational, technical and academic learning programmes that result in a qualification or part qualification which is registered on the National Qualifications Framework, as contemplated in regulation 3(6) and (7) as read with regulation to (15).

The SETAs made a submission to the DHET to consider accepting internships, workplace experience, as PIVOTAL. This process led to the revision of the new Guidelines on the Implementation of SETA Grant Regulations, which allows for SETAs to be creative because all sectors are different. PIVOTAL programmes address scarce and critical skills needs that lead to a full or part qualification registered on the NQF. Types of  PIVOTAL Programmes include:

• Professional programmes
• Vocational programmes
• Technical programmes
• Academic programmes
• Internships (leading towards a qualification)
• Workplace experience (with a qualification)
• Credit bearing short course which form part of a registered qualification.
