Zongezile Baloyi, the SASSETA CEO mentioned in his annual report that the quality assurance system at SASSETA had been strengthened. A solid foundation had been laid down with regards to putting the necessary systems providing adequate capacity to accredit, monitor and evaluate training providers, including implementation of measures aimed at ensuring quality of provision of training. He also mentioned that significant strides had been witnessed in the conversion from grade-orientated training of security officers into an NQF-aligned qualification within the private security industry. The two responsible institutions here were SASSETA and PSIRA.

He concluded by saying that SETA looked forward to engaging more with its stakeholders in ensuring that all its sub-sections, throughout all the provinces in South Africa, would benefit from the skills development initiatives.
