1 EDUCATION AND TRAINING QUALITY ASSURANCE

2 EDUCATION AND TRAINING QUALITY ASSURANCE 1. Functions The proviso for the accreditation of Education and Training Quality Assurance (ETQA) bodies was promulgated in 1998, when ETQA regulations were published. Their responsibility included accrediting providers of education and training standards and qualifications, registered on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF), auditing the quality of learning provision and assessment, registering assessors, moderators and issuing valid certificates to learners. The ETQA also certifies a system that promotes and maintains quality by: Ensuring that all training providers seeking accreditation in the Mining and Minerals Sector, implement the ISO 9001:2000 Quality Management System together with other requirements as stated by SAQA. Registering all assessors responsible for evaluating any Mining and Minerals registered unit standards. Successfully assessing each learner against all the unit standards that make up a particular qualification and then issuing a qualification certificate against competence for that learner. This certificate will only be issued for qualifications obtained that have been registered on the NQF. Primary Function is ensuring value through: 1. Accrediting training providers for specific standards or qualifications registered on the NQF; 2. Quality assurance of learner achievements by registered assessors in accordance with required standards and criteria; 3. Evaluation of learning programmes; 4. Improving the quality and relevance of education and training in the sector; 5. Supporting provider development; 6. Establishing and maintaining a database by recording learner achievements; 7. Certification; and 8. Assessor Registration. Certification In terms of the SAQA Act, the is accredited by SAQA to fulfil the functions as contemplated in Regulation 9 of the ETQA Regulations R 1127 of 1998 to, inter alia, conduct the function of certification. The fulfils this by: Issuing certificates to learners who have proved competence against a qualification; Issuing statements of attainment to learners who have proved competence against a skills programme; Issuing certificates of accreditation to Training Providers that have met all the requirements to receive full accreditation status; Ensuring that the currency of certificates by monitoring the security of certificates.

3 Assessor Registration The registration of assessors forms one part of the quality assurance process designed to ensure the credibility of the assessment system. This function has been devolved to the ETQA s by SAQA. The SAQA requirements demands that Assessors are registerd with ETQA. The purpose of assessment is to measure outcomes. In standards-based assessment, the learner presents evidence to the assessor that he/she has met the outcomes of the unit standards. It is the role of the assessor to judge this evidence and declare competence (when appropriate). The assessor gives feedback to the learner regarding the assessment decision. The assessor will recommend whether additional coaching and or learning and or assessment are needed. Assessment emphasizes the assessment of outputs and end products, which are expressed as outcomes and competence. The assessment criteria measures applied competence, which consists of Practical, Foundation and Reflexive competence. This means that the leaner must: Be able to perform a set of tasks in an authentic setting; Demonstrate understanding of what and why he is doing something; Be able to integrate performance with understanding, so as to be able to show that he/she can adapt to changed circumstances, and then explain the reasons for change. Why do we need assessors? The reason for the registration of assessors is to enhance the credibility of assessment decisions, which ultimately impacts on the awarding of unit standards and/or qualifications. Requirements for the Registration of Constituentt Assessors In order for one to register as an assessor with the, one must: Must be found competent on the Plan and condact assessment of learning outcomes by an ETDP SETA accredited Training Provider; Must be a subject matter except in the field for which one is applying to assess; Must be linked to an linked company, and Must complete and submit all relevant documents to the. Quality Assurance Learner Achievements Accredited providers must ensure that the following deliverables are adhered to prior to the recognition of provider assessments and certification of learners by the : 1. Learner achievements reflect genuine competence against registered unit standards and qualifications at the relevant/associated level; 2. Assessment of achievements are fair, valid and reliable; EDUCATION AND TRAINING QUALITY ASSURANCE

4 EDUCATION AND TRAINING QUALITY ASSURANCE 3. Assessments are in line with SAQA policies and procedures, for quality assurance of learner achievements; and 4. All assessment systems are in place and operational Learner achievements are validated to ensure that assessment of learners complies with national standards and qualifications. Such verification processes, are validation mechanisms used to verify recommendations on awards, and to ensure that assessments are accurately conducted and moderated. The quality assurance of learner achievements ends with the endorsement process, whereby the recommendations from the provider in relation to learner achievements are endorsed by the ETQA in terms of its certification process. Provider Accreditation Requirements The, acting in its capacity as an ETQA, has a responsibility to maintain quality of assessments throughout the mining industry. One means of doing this is to establish criteria for the accreditation of providers and registration of assessors. In terms of the SAQA ETQA Regulation 1127 of 1998, the must also audit quality of providers, moderate assessment and review qualifications and unit standards for the mining industry. Assessments System; Moderation System; Learning Delivery System; QMS (ISO 900:2000) Applicants as training providers can fall into one of three categories: Provides only education and training services; Provides only assessment services; Provides the full spectrum of education, training and assessment services.
