Is there a need for an Education and Training Ombud?
17 March 2016
South Africa needs an integrated and articulated education and training system so that learners at all ages and stages of life can access and progress in their studies, and their learning and work pathways. The White Paper for Post-School Education and Training (2013) states that:
“In developing and supporting an articulated post-school education and training system, institutions should make every effort to avoid unfair barriers to acceptance and credit transfer. Students also need somewhere to turn when they feel they have unfairly been denied access, or when credit has been unfairly not recognised. This role could be played by SAQA as part of its function in promoting articulation”
This blog has been set up to gather public opinion:
Do you think there is a need for an Education and Training Ombud?
What could the functions of this Ombud be?
Where should this Ombud be located?
What would the benefits and risks of having an Ombud for Education and Training be?
The blog will run from 7-25 March 2016, and will be moderated by SAQA staff and staff from JET Education Services.
