Service Description

Want to start a new occupational college and operate in the Technical, Vocational, Educational and Training (TVET) Sector? The Quality Council for Trades and Occupations (QCTO) ensures that their qualifications respond to priority skills of the country with over 339 qualifications in fields such as education, transport, accounting, management, IT, tourism, artisans, mining, motoring, geology, water, electrical, banking, firefighting, insurance, farming, policing, traffic, correctional services, retail, wholesale, roads, tax, journalism; community development etc. Occupational qualifications focus on theory, practicals and workplace learning. South Africa has a critical and scarce skills list that should be adopted in the program mix. This type of business venture would suit both new entrants and experienced persons wanting to be part of education and training, which is deemed an essential service. Accreditation and registration can be achieved between 3-9 months from commencement and allow entrepreneurs to achieve above-average returns on investment within the first 9-18 months. SETA qualifications have a limited shelf life to 30 June 2023 making the QCTO qualifications a valuable alternative in terms of strategic pathways. THE PROCESS The process involves accreditation with the QCTO & registration with the Department of Higher Education & Training. The process can take 3 - 6 months depending. It is recommended that new entrants into the sector ensure that all paper-based applications both the QCTO and the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) are all submitted for evaluation prior to the Green List deadline of 31 August. This ensures that providers are guaranteed of being able to operate in the coming financial year.
