In this issue of the Bulletin, the focus is on credit accumulation and transfer (CAT) in South Africa. The first paper is on analysing the South African CAT policy, which at the time of writing was a draft open for public comment. In addition to this, the paper also reviews international experiences of CAT systems. Secondly, is a paper that looks into credit accumulation and transfer comprehensively by considering its relationship with lifelong learning, recognition of prior learning, as well as the national qualifications framework. The effort is a contribution to the eventual development of CAT policy and later, system. The third paper presents international case studies on credit accumulation and transfer for consideration in the development of a South African CAT system. Lastly, the Bulletin then included a copy of the document Policy for Credit Accumulation and Transfer within the National Qualifications Framework.
