SETA Accredited Training Provider

The main steps in the accreditation process to become a SETA Accredited Training Provider:

The Training Provider determines the primary focus
The SETA Quality Assurance Management Division requirements are compiled by the provider
The Training Provider completes and submits an online application form for accreditation
A compliance check is conducted by SETA and the provider receives a notification of compliance / non-compliance
The Training Provider responds to the notification if necessary
A site visit is scheduled and conducted by a SETA ETQA evaluator
The evaluator sends his/her report to SETA
The evaluation report is quality assured and the report indicating the status of accreditation is sent to the provider. Where applicable, areas of remediation will be detailed in the report.
The Training Provider is required to respond to areas of remediation if necessary, and make the relevant submission.
Confirm registration with the DHET

Providers of education and training must apply for accreditation with an Education and Training Quality Assurance (ETQA) body under the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA)(link is external). All providers of education and training offering full qualifications must be registered with the Department of Education.

The education and training provider has to offer unit standards and/or qualifications that fall within the primary focus area of the ETQA body of the relevant Sector Education and Training Authority (SETA)(link is external) or professional body.

Requirements for accreditation:

The programmes (and/or assessments) offered by the education and training provider must culminate in unit standards and/or qualifications registered on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF).
The curriculum (design, content and learning materials) is aligned to the unit standards and/or qualifications.
There are suitably qualified staff (facilitators and registered assessors).
The learners have access to adequate learning support services.
The assessment methods and tools used to measure the requirements for the unit standard and/or qualification are fair, valid and reliable, and are used to enhance learning.
