Accreditation vs Not-Accredited

What is SETA-accredited Course?

What is SETA-accredited Course?

To offer nationally recognised training, all training providers and educational institutes need to be accredited by a relevant Education Training Quality Assurance Body (ETQA).

 

SETAs are one kind of Education Training Quality Assurance Bodies – ETQAs.

 

When an education or training provider is accredited by an ETQA (for example, SETAs), this ‘stamp of approval’ indicates that the provider gives valuable, portable, outcomes-based and relevant training and assessment. When an education provider is accredited by a SETA, they are then able to offer SETA-accredited courses.

 

By registering with an ETQA-accredited training provider (for example, with a College that offers SETA-accredited courses), you can be assured that you will gain valuable knowledge from these courses which you will be able to apply in your workplace.

 

What are the benefits of studying a SETA-accredited Course?

 

  • Most SETA-accredited courses are national qualifications registered with the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) and on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF).
  • All students who successfully achieve the outcomes of Unit Standards and Qualifications that registered on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) will have their achievements officially listed on the National Learners’ Records Database (NLRD).
  • Most national qualifications are made up of a variety of individual Unit Standards. Each Unit Standards carries a certain number of Credits. A student will be given Credits for each Unit Standard that they successfully complete. A record of these Credits is kept on the National Learners’ Record Database.
  • Sometimes, the same Unit Standards are used in different qualifications. So, if a student successfully completes a specific Unit Standard as part of one qualification, then the student will not have to re-study that same Unit Standard if s/he registers for another qualification that also has exactly the same Unit Standard.
  • Many employers would consider paying for these qualifications as these qualifications are National Qualifications. Companies can claim money back from the relevant SETA for doing this.
