Background Information • The 2012/13 Annual Report is the third Annual Report of the Department of Higher Education and Training • For the 2012/13 financial year the Department had a total of 107 planned targets: • 62 targets were achieved • 33 targets were partially achieved • 12 targets were not achieved • 11 of the partially and not achieved targets have subsequently been achieved post 31 March 2013 • Implementation of the phasing-in of VCET function shift and other matters

  6. National Certificate (Vocational) Certification • Unlike the traditional matric examination, examinations for FET colleges are conducted seven times a year and twice a year for AET, with candidates being assessed and certificated in each of these nine examination cycles • Prior to the establishment of the Department in 2009, certification challenges had already existed in the issuing of NC(V) certificates • 322 214 NC(V) Levels 2 to 4 certificates have been issued • 16 602 certificates were initially not issued because public FET Colleges owed certification fees to Umalusi. The Department has successfully intervened and ensured that Umalusi lifts this block. Certificates, which are now being processed for release • 3 491 certificates have not been issued by Umalusi because of outstanding certification fees owed by private FET Colleges. The Department has contacted each of these institutions to settle outstanding certification debt • 18 106 certificates have not been processed due to data anomalies in the candidate’s datasets. This is the actual backlog. The Department is in constant engagement with SITA to address these anomalies. SITA is also in the process of sourcing additional capacity to resolve this matter
