QCTO – Quality Council for Trades and Occupations

The Quality Council for Trades and Occupations (QCTO) is a Quality Council established in 2010 in terms of the Skills Development Act. Its role is to oversee the design, implementation, assessment and certification of occupational qualifications on the Occupational Qualifications Sub-Framework (OQSF).

The QCTO is one of three Quality Councils (QCs) responsible for a part of the National Qualifications Framework (NQF). Collectively, the Quality Councils and the South African Qualifications Authority (whose role is to advance the objectives of the NQF and oversee its development and implementation), all work for the good of both learners and employers. Another important role for the QCTO is to offer guidance to service providers who must be accredited by the QCTO to offer occupational qualifications.

Following the format of the organizing framework for Occupations (QFO), occupational qualifications are categorised into the eight major employment groups.

  • Managers;
  • Professionals;
  • Technicians and Associate Professionals;
  • Clerical Support Workers;
  • Service and Sales Workers;
  • Skilled agriculture, forestry, fisheries, craft and related trades
  • Plant and Machine Operators and Assemblers; and
  • Elementary Occupations.

Our vision is to qualify a skilled and capable workforce; our mission is to effectively and efficiently manage the occupational qualifications sub-framework in order to set standards, develop and quality assure national occupational qualifications for all who want a trade or occupation and, where appropriate, professions.
