IMPLEMENTATION OF PRE-APPROVAL PROCESS FOR DEVELOPMENT OF QUALIFICATIONS
 
BQA informs all those interested in submitting any qualification for registration on the National Credit and Qualifications Framework (NCQF), that the Authority will resume implementation of the Pre-Approval Process with immediate effect. This is to minimise duplicate submissions and ensure that qualification developed are relevant to social and economic needs of the country. The Pre-Approval Process, which is the first stage of qualifications development process, was not implemented at the start of processing submitted applications for registration of qualifications in January 2018, because there were no registered qualifications and therefore no basis for assessing proposals.
 
Pre-approval of qualifications process evaluates the validity of proposals to develop qualifications for registration on the NCQF against a set criterion. When the qualification development proposal is deemed successful, the developer will be authorized to develop the proposed qualification and submit it for registration on the NCQF. Proposals for development of qualifications, that do not meet the set criteria, will be rejected.
 
However, the Authority will continue to process applications for registration of qualifications that have already been submitted. Application Form, Criteria and Guidelines and the Proposed Qualification Template for Pre-approval Process can be accessed on the BQA website: www.bqa.org.bw.
