SAQA Bulletin: Volume 15 Number 1: March 2016


Volume 15(1) of the SAQA Bulletin is on South African Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges and how South African qualifications are recognised internationally. Democratic South Africa inherited a highly segregated education system, and in an attempt to address this disparity, educational reforms were implemented in the college system. Such improvements had implications on lecturers, curricula and classroom dynamics, thus imposing changes in pedagogical strategies. The Bulletin also explores a new approach of comparing qualifications frameworks.
