ETDQA Circular 3/2007 Attention: All chemical industry sector’s accredited and learning-programme approved providers From: Ayesha Itzkin, CHIETA-ETDQA Executive Manager Date: 4ND JULY 2007 SUBJECT: One important Notice for the Attention of ALL Accredited/Approved Providers Offering CHIETA Qualifications & Unit Standards Purpose of this Circular: The purpose of this Circular is to draw your attention to the following important notice for your information and action: Notification on the current primary focus of the CHIETA and an encouragement to obtain an accreditation status or extend your company’s accreditation scope to include the newly registered qualifications or standards in order to enroll learners and actively participate in skills development within the chemical industries sector. CHIETA ETQA NEWSFLASH 4th July 2007 Dear CHIETA Accredited and Learning Programme-Approved Providers Please note a list of qualifications within the CHIETA’s primary focus below. These qualifications and trades have been awarded by SAQA to the CHIETA ETQA to quality assure within the chemical industries sector. Most of the CHIETA’s active providers have to date been providing education and training against some of these qualifications. As you know, some of these qualifications, especially those under Engineering and Related design are currently under review. Once the review is finalized, SAQA will register the qualifications on the NQF and award them to the CHIETA if they still meet the chemical industries sector needs. Once SAQA has awarded these to the CHIETA ETQA, the CHIETA ETQA will, as in the past notify all the constituent providers about this, and encourage, support you to prepare for and apply for accreditation. This Newsflash is primarily meant to notify and remind all the CHIETA potential, accredited and approved Providers about the availability of qualifications highlighted in a red font below. Most of these highlighted qualifications have not been used by providers, although they were developed and registered by the Chemical Industries Standard Generating Body (CISGB) and communicated to the providers. From this list, those that are newly registered by SAQA and recently awarded to the CHIETA to quality assure are indicated with a hash sign #. Please note: CHIETA accredited and approved Providers must please consider offering the qualifications in your training programmes by extending your scope to include them. Some providers already have the qualifications within their scope. If so please activate them. The ETQA will support your company to come up to speed as we have done in the past, though our focused provider supports interventions. Note that should there be no uptake of qualifications; SAQA could consider removing them from the primary scope of the CHIETA.
