Recommendations in Relation to ETD Practitioners as Assessors, and those Assessors who are not ETD Practitioners

For SAQA, all practitioners who will be responsible for the assessment of the achievement of learning outcomes leading to qualifications and standards registered on the NQF should, over a period of four years, become certificated assessors and registered constituent assessors for specified qualifications and/or standards.  All grades – from grade 0 – FET is listed on the NQF.
SAQA is of the view that the term ‘assessor’ can refer to both practitioner–assessor and an assessor who is not a practitioner. The notion of the education and training practitioner being both the learning facilitator and assessor means that teachers, lecturers and trainers who traditionally have administered assessment in addition to facilitating learning should become registered constituent assessors for specified standards and qualifications once they have met all the necessary criteria.
The new standards for all ETD practitioners will in future incorporate the generic assessor standard, and qualified practitioners in the future will be automatically listed on the NLRD as having achieved this standard. Thereafter they will have to meet any additional requirements put in place by the relevant ETQA (for example, criteria relating to experience) in order to become registered constituent assessors for particular standards and/or qualifications.
