Referred to as the game-changer for the industry, the OQSF brings the country closer to a system that satisfies the demands of industries while also guaranteeing that students have access to qualifications that prepare them for the workforce and allow them to map a learning pathway across the National Qualifications Framework (NQF).
The Deputy Minister will be joined by the QCTO CEO, Mr. Vijayen Naidoo, Education and Training Sector strategic partners and other leaders within the skills development sector.
The QCTO is expecting more than 150 delegates from the education and training sector, and relevant government departments to attend this august event.
