Provider Status


    SAQA registers qualifications and part-qualifications on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) upon recommendation from the Quality Councils (QCs).


    Training providers are required to register with the Department of Higher Education and Training. Training providers must also be accredited to offer registered qualifications and skills programmes by the relevant Quality Councils (QCs). The three QCs are the:


    • Council for Quality Assurance in General and Further Education and Training (Umalusi) for general and further education and training qualifications
    • Quality Council for Trades and Occupations (QCTO) for work-based qualifications
    • Council on Higher Education (CHE) for higher education qualifications


    To confirm the status of a training provider to offer qualifications and/or skills programmes, please contact the relevant QC on the contact details provided below:
