NEW MODEL FOR QUALIFICATIONS DEVELOPMENT Minister launched QCTO in Feb 2010. With the launch, new dispensation for development of Occupational Qualifications. A new structure ( the QCTO ) and new model for qualifications was developed. Implication, SGB generated qualifications will need to be replaced when they expire. Replaced according to the QCTO model.
QCTO Qualifications Subframeworks QCTO stand for Quality Council for Trades and Occupations. It is one of the 3 Quality Councils, each responsible for a qualifications sub framework on the National Qualifications Framework. The other 2 are CHE and Umalusi The QCTO is responsible for the sub framework of Trades and Occupations.
What is the QCTO mandate ‘the QCTO is responsible for establishing and maintaining occupational standards and qualifications’ ‘the quality assurance of occupational standards and qualifications and learning in and for the workplace’ Designing and developing occupational standards and qualifications and submitting them to the SAQA for registration on the NQF Ensuring the quality of occupational standards and qualifications and learning in and for the workplace; (SDA, 2008, Section 26H)
Why the change to the QCTO Challenges to the current system : Unit Standards that did not speak to industry requirements. Outcomes in the unit standards that were practically irrelevant for various industries. Difference in Quality Standards provided by private providers. Learners trained and not being employable. Difference in Quality Standards across the SETA Poor Assessment practices.
Our Approach to the new Model Agriseta approached this new challenge pro-actively. Volunteered to participate in a pilot project to develop qualifications for the sector. The Board and Management of the AGRISETA supports the project. Appointed a person to be responsible for the development of the qualifications. Establish QCTO policies for the AGRISETA Ensure smooth transition of the process going forward.
