Quality Assurance (ETQA)

Quality Assurance (ETQA)

The core function of the Quality Assurance division includes accrediting skills development providers for legacy qualifications, the registration of assessors and moderators, the verification of learning, and awarding learners’ certificates.

ETQA facilitates a seamless relationship between learner, assessor and moderators, and providers, ensuring that relevant, nationally and internationally benchmarked education is provided.

INSETA works with industry stakeholders to develop and review qualifications and unit standards through INSQA-directed projects allowing the sector to receive access to SAQA NQF registered qualifications.

The teach out period for a qualification applies only to learners who have accessed the qualification embarked on a programme of study leading to the qualification, before the expiry date of the qualification.

It does not apply to any new learners who wish to access the qualification after the registration end date. The Teach out period for an existing but expiring qualification is not dependent upon if and when a new qualification is registered.

Learners must ensure that, if they wish to be awarded a qualification, that they have enrolled for it during its registration period and that they have completed it before the Teach out period is up.
