MICT Seta criteria for assessor registration
MICT Seta will register all assessors whose fields of expertise coincide with the primary focus
areas of Information Technology, Telecommunications, and Electronics.
Constituent assessors will be registered for a period of one year, renewable. This condition
applies to assessors who are actively involved in the field of expertise and in the assessment
Subject matter expertise
All registered assessors must be able to demonstrate competence in relation to the specified
standards and qualifications at or above the level of the qualifications in question (Ref:
Annexure A in the application form). Assessors must be proficient in the subject matter of the
discipline or learning area related to the standards and qualifications for which they are
responsible. The assessor should have either the same qualification as the one being
assessed, or a qualification in the same ‘family’ as the one being assessed.
The MICT Seta ETQA will assist in defining what “family” is acceptable for their qualifications.
In some cases, however, assessors must have the actual qualification they are assessing – this
is especially true for occupations in which lives are at risk. Furthermore, in certain cases, the
MICT Seta ETQA may insist on a qualification at least one level above the one being assessed.
This is usually the practice for formal academic qualifications up to level 7.
Contextual and occupational expertise
Assessors should demonstrate contextual and occupational expertise and experience in their
field of assessment. (Ref Annexure B in the application form.)
Plan and conduct assessment of learning outcomes (ASSMT01)
All persons applying to be registered as MICT Seta assessors should submit proof that they
have achieved the generic assessor standard (ASSMT01) and should be certificated by ETDP
Seta or by the relevant ETQA in agreement with ETDP Seta in this regard. (Ref: Annexure C in
the application form.) This requirement will be enforced from 1 June 2004.
Education, training and development (ETD) expertise
Applicants must provide evidence that they are qualified as a trainer, educator or ETDP
practitioner. (Ref Annexure D in the application form.) From 1 June 2004 the minimum
education/ training /development qualification will be the ETD Practitioner National Certificate as
indicated by ETDP Seta.
