SKILLS DEVELOPEMENT FACILITATORS
MQA Skills Audit Project Launched
The National Skills Development Facilitator (SDF) Forum was conducted on 24 August 2011 at the Birchwood Hotel in Boksburg. The forum was well attended by relevant MQA stakeholders such as SDFs as well as representatives from the labour organisations.
The aim of the forum was to give feedback on the WSP-ATR 2011 submission process as well as to launch the MQA Skills Audit Project whereby organisations will be requested to establish the skills capacity of their employees.
Further information about this project is available below and organisations within the mining and minerals sector that wish to participate in this project will be required to complete an application form.

The MQA will approve SDFs from medium (50 - 149 employees) and large organisations (150 plus employees) PROVIDED that the Authorisation Section of the form has been signed off by the Senior Organisation representative, the SDF and the Skills Development Committee representatives (Trade union/employee representatives). This means that consultation of the Skills Development Committee regarding the SDFs must still take place in medium and large organistations.
In the case of small organisations (49 or less employees), the Authorisation Section must be signed by the Senior Organisation representative.
