SAQA – The South African Qualifications Authority – What Is It?
For those who aren’t in the know, SAQA is the South African Qualifications Authority. SAQA is unlike any other entity in that it is by law, given a legal personality. This particular authority is appointed by the Minister of Higher Education and Training and consists of 12 members.
Members of SAQA have to meet with some criteria in order to be considered for the position. For instance they must be involved in education and training in some way. They must form part of a professional body and be involved in organised labour. Being involved in organised business as well as organisations that represent development of the community are also positive attributes for interested individuals.
SAQA and the NQF in South Africa
SAQA is tasked with ensuring that the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) is both developed and implemented in the appropriate sectors. This particular framework is where qualifications and standards of training or registered. Courses and training centres that offer NQF registered classes generally meet with the standards and qualification guidelines set out by this particular framework and of course SAQA.
There are various NQF levels set out according to the numerous courses and qualifications available in South Africa.
