Registration and Accreditation Processes


    Should you wish to offer qualifications and/or skills programmes, please note that you are required to register your institution with the Department of Higher Education and Training. You will also need to be accredited by the relevant Quality Council (QC) to offer your qualifications and skills programmes.


    The three QCs are the:

    • Council for Quality Assurance in General and Further Education and Training (Umalusi) for General and Further Education and Training Qualifications
    • Quality Council for Trades and Occupations (QCTO) for work-based qualifications
    • Council on Higher Education (CHE) for high education qualifications


    For information on the accreditation process and requirements, please contact the relevant QC on the contact details below.
