Introduction

Expression of Interest Form

Revisions to the High Education Qualifications Framework (HEQF) have altered how the tertiary education institutes can package their postgraduate qualifications. This has resulted in a gap between the needs of the South African extractive industry in terms of training and skills development and the manner in which tertiary education institutions are currently delivering and packaging their qualifications. Those tasked with ensuring that their employees are provided with the necessary training in order for them to progress through the company hierarchy are of the opinion that training and skills development are not easily accessible to them. It is therefore essential that the progression for Differently Qualified Applicants (DQA) also be addressed and catered for in any proposals regarding the development of qualifications. The opportunities around dual education and work-integrated models are also to be explored.
