The mission of the Quality Council for Trades and Occupations (QCTO) is to effectively and efficiently manage the Occupational Qualifications Sub-Framework (OQSF) in order to set standards for, develop, and quality assure national occupational qualifications for all who want a trade or occupation and, where appropriate, for professions.
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 (SAQA), work for the good of both learners and employers. Another role for the QCTO is to accredit Skills Development Providers (SDPs) who wish to offer qualifications registered on the OQSF.
