We did it!

CTEET is an accredited training provider and we couldn’t be more excited! From the end of 2019 until the end of 2020, the Training and Development Team have been working exceptionally hard to develop the quality management systems, policies and the training materials.

In December 2020 the content for two qualifications in Nature Conservation were submitted. By March 2021 we received our accreditation letter from the Culture, Arts, Tourism, Hospitality & Sports Sector Education & Training Authority (CATHSSETA) to offer the National Certificate Nature Conservation: Resource Guardianship (NQF level 2) and the Further Education and Training Certificate – Nature Conservation: Terrestrial Guardianship (NQF level 4).  This means in a little over a year, the team established CTEET as a training provider from scratch, something that according to the SETA is almost impossible in that timeframe. Well done to the training team on this huge accomplishment!

What does it mean for CTEET?  We can now offer the Nature Conservation qualification or accredited short courses instead of using the services of other providers. It also means that we generate income by providing training for our programmes and to external parties.  CTEET is committed to the development of youth and to contributing to the capabilities and the capacity of the Green Economy and our accreditation aids us in this commitment.

But we are not done.  The team is currently developing and finalising the content for a number of accredited short courses which we are aiming to roll out before the end of 2021.  Watch this space!!
