Pre-Assessment Policy

It is the Institute’s purpose to ensure that all learners entering a course, do so with the aim of graduating successfully.  Further to this, the Institute’s will ensure that all learners are adequately prepared for the assessment to take place.

Pre-Assessment Procedure

  • Learners are required to complete a registration form before attending each course.
  • Every course has a Curriculum Outline/Assessment Strategy which states what the SAQA prescribed learner entry requirements are.
  • This registration form will be reviewed by the Director in conjunction with the Curriculum Outline and the Director will check to see whether the learner meets these requirements
  • If the learner does not meet the stipulated learner entry requirements, the learner will be sent an email stating this.
  • The learner may motivate by means of a return email as to why they believe they will have entry to the course.
  • The Director may discuss this with the Moderator and the final decision will be awarded by the Moderator.
