Standards Development View

SAQA together with the three Quality Councils (QCs) must seek to advance the objectives of the NQF by:

  • Developing, fostering and maintaining an integrated and transparent national framework for the recognition of learning achievements;
  • Ensuring that South African qualifications meet appropriate criteria, determined by the Minister of Education and are internationally comparable; and
  • Ensuring that South African qualifications are of an acceptable quality.
  • Communicating the NQF to the public
  • Facilitating research initiatives and disseminating the outcomes thereof
  • Evaluating foreign qualifications

SAQA's objectives are to:

  1. Advance the objectives of the NQF;
  2. Oversee the further development and implementation of the NQF; and
  3. Co-ordinate the elements within the NQF
