WHY USE US?

Quite simply, we are the best outsourced accreditation service providers in the Industry!

We pride ourselves in not only our service offering, but the unique and personal service that we provide our clients. Our clients are not just names in a system. We partner with you to find the absolute best solutions for your needs at the best prices.

Training providers who have attempted the SETA accreditation process without outside assistance can testify that it is certainly a daunting, time-consuming and frustrating process. Accreditation criteria are rigid and strictly applied.

Any areas of non-compliance or mistakes in a training provider’s accreditation portfolio of evidence (PoE) for submission to the relevant SETA can cause set-backs and time delays that extend way beyond the 90-working day turn-around-time for SETA processing of the application and review of the PoE.

Time is money!

Compliance with the criteria for accreditation requires expertise and knowledge in all areas of operating an effective and efficient training organisation.

We have the required knowledge and experience which was acquired from of our combined 80+ years of business management, business systems, human capital management, labour relations and skills development experience.

We go way beyond the call of duty to ensure that you have the best possible accreditation experience, WHILST YOU CONCENTRATE ON YOUR CORE BUSINESS OPERATIONS.

Furthermore:

YOUR CONFIDENTIALITY IS GUARANTEED – The terms and conditions of our services, and more importantly, safeguards to ensure that your sensitive and confidential business information remains confidential and that you get the professional service that you require are defined in a Service Level Agreement that we enter into with you.

FULL CONTROL – Although we manage the accreditation process with the SETA, you maintain ultimate control over the entire process. We provide regular progress updates to keep you “in the loop” at all times.

BENEFITS OF OUTSOURCING YOUR ACCREDITATION PROJECT:

STAFFING and LABOUR COSTS – Accreditation is effectively a once off process which is renewable after 5 years. Outsourcing to a team of experts save you the costs of employing your own team of staff with the required expertise for essentially a “once-off” project.

ACCESS TO SKILLED RESOURCES AND EXPERTISE – We are experts in our field and have the niche knowledge, skills and experience required in training provider accreditation and the implementation of total quality management systems.

INCREASED EFFICIENCY – We have INTIMATE KNOWLEDGE OF the Occupational Qualification Sub-Framework (OQSF) and the QCTO and SETA landscape. We know exactly what evidence is required for accreditation and how to present it to them to achieve results efficiently and effectively.

CONTACTS – We have developed working relationships with the SETAS and the Education and Training Quality Assurance (ETQA) Management and Staff and thus know exactly who to deal with to achieve the desired outcomes.

SIMPLIFIED PROJECT MANAGEMENT – We effectively manage the entire process from what needs to be done, how it needs to be done, when it needs to be submitted and when to expect results. We follow up consistently with the SETA ETQA Verifications team to ensure that the job gets done within the SETA mandated turn-around-times.

FASTER RESULTS – We have a TEAM of staff working on your accreditation project to ensure the project is completed in the shortest possible time frame.

FOCUS ON CORE AREAS – Having a team of experts focussing on your accreditation project gives you the freedom to focus on other CORE business areas and activities.

PEACE OF MIND – Dealing with the SETAS and the strict requirements for accreditation can be very stressful, and often results in training providers giving up on the entire project. With us, you will have the peace of mind that your accreditation project is being given the priority it deserves and will be completed, without having to deal with the associated stress.
