EXTENSION OF TRANSITION TIMELINES FOR LEARNING PROGRAMMES AND GENERAL EDUCATION

Botswana Qualifications Authority (BQA) informs learners, parents, sponsors, Education and Training Providers(ETPs) and other stakeholders that the transition deadline for Learning Programmes from the legacy systems (Vocational Education and Training, and Tertiary Education) has been extended by one year from 02 December 2020 to 02 December 2021.

Education and Training Providers can enroll new learners to these programmes until 02 December 2021. Learners enrolled in these learning programmes will be taught until they complete their courses of study with recognised qualifications. The lists of registered and accredited ETPs and their valid learning programmes are available on the BQA website (www.bqa.org.bw). The Authority will continue to monitor ETPs for continued compliance to set Quality Assurance Standards (QAS).

Stakeholders are also informed that the transition deadline for General Education Providers has been extended to 02 December 2024. The Authority and stakeholders will conclude the General Education Quality Assurance Model for implementation effective 2020/21. BQA assures stakeholders that it is committed to ensuring quality, relevant and accessible education and training that meet the needs of learners and industry, locally and globally.
