Professional Qualifications Notice

In response to requests from professional bodies (both statutory and non-statutory) SAQA has initiated a research project to investigate the inclusion of qualifications deemed “professional” on the NQF. Questions that will be investigated include the following: What criteria and nomenclature should be used when “professional” qualifications are registered on the NQF, if at all? What are the statutory requirements in various sectors for professional qualifications and what are the implications for inclusion on the NQF? Initial research will be conducted between 1 October and 31 December 2005 and culminate in a research report that will be distributed to all stakeholders for comments early 2006. Professional bodies that wish to participate in the research are referred to the Request for Professional Bodies to participate in a SAQA Research Project [PDF]
