Good day everyone I am currently in the process of getting all my qualifications evaluated by WES and one of my qualifications is a National Diploma in Service Management (SAQA ID 20414) that I obtained at Capital Hotel School and Training Academy in 2010.I haven't worked in this field of study as I did my degree directly after.I have read through all the forums and I have also searched endlessly online and I think I know the answer to my question but I would love some confirmation. This National Diploma's primary or delegated quality assurance functionary is CATHSSETA (Culture, Arts, Tourism, Hospitality and Sports Education and Training Authority ).After I saw that they are not currently an accredited provider of the National Diploma in Service Management on the registered qualification page on the SAQA website and also inquiring as to whether or not Capital Hotel School is registered at the Department of Higher Education and the response was that they are not and their application is still in progress.I am quite concerned that they would not be a recognized institution at WES. I have also been getting very vague responses from them with regards to my academic transcripts and this was their one response when I asked them for it " Firstly, I need to ensure that I have what is requested, as we do not keep information for longer that 5 years, as per our accreditation bodies requirements." I went to their campus today as I could only get off from work this morning and they told me that they can't help me and that they will try and accommodate me on the 4th of February.I was already unsure about submitting this qualification to WES but after today I am even more unsure and I just don't want to waste precious time trying to get these documents from them. Deep down I know that WES will not evaluate it,especially after reading more about SETA qualifications/trade qualifications on these forums,but for some reason I just cant get rid of the feeling that maybe it will count for something and I just would just like confirmation. Can someone please help my confused brain out?
Hi all I have a level 4 diploma in Educare with allows me to teach children from birth to the age of 5. Does anyone perhaps know who I can contact to find out what my diploma is worth in Canada? I believe it's called a kindergarten teacher over there? Many thanks
Hi everyone, I am new to the forum and I have seen a lot of helpful information on the forum so thanks so much for this. My husband, our 7 month old son and I have decided that we would like to start a brighter future in Canada. After seeing an agent and doing intensive research and reading, we decided that we would attempt to apply ourselves. I am experiencing an issue with getting my education recognized and wanted to find out if anyone else has gone through something similar. I studied an International Professional Advanced Chef Management Diploma through Capsicum Culinary Studio. This course was a 2 year course but I received three separate diplomas for the course: Diploma in Patisserie, Diploma in Food Preparation & Cooking and an Advanced Diploma in Culinary Arts. These Diplomas are from City & Guilds and are level IVQ 2 & IVQ 3. It was advised to me to go through BCIT to have my education assessed but they are not even considering it to be a 1 year course. This is the reply I received from them: "Thank you for your email. Please note the credential that has been submitted is out of scope of what we can assess. We cannot do this credential because it less than one-year duration and it is a trans-national credential. You are welcome to apply with any other academic credentials the client may have. " I would like to try and have it assessed through IQAS as this was another company recommended to me by the agent but IQAS requires me to pay up front - which I don't mind doing if I get the results I need but of course this cannot be guaranteed. Any advise on the matter would be greatly appreciated. I am currently studying a business degree part time so if all else fails we will wait to apply at the end of next year, but if my previous course is recognized - we can start the process earlier. Thanks in advance!
