Framework for Qualification Standards in Higher Education

June, 2015

Introduction

Legislative background

In terms of the Higher Education Act (no. 101 of 1997) and the Higher Education Amendment Act (no. 39 of 2008), the Council on Higher Education (CHE) is responsible for quality assurance for higher education, and for implementation of the Higher Education Qualifications Sub-Framework (HEQSF).

The HEQSF, in turn, assigns to the CHE the responsibility for developing standards for all higher education qualifications.

The development of standards is an important element in contributing to the successful implementation of the HEQF, as standards provide benchmarks to guide the development, implementation and quality assurance of programmes leading to qualifications. Standards registered for higher education qualifications must have legitimacy, credibility and a common, well-understood meaning.
