NQA welcomes 13 institutions

14 December 2016 | Education

Thirteen institutions have been accredited by the National Qualifications Authority.

Speaking at a ceremony where the certificates were handed out, the chairperson of the NQA council, Matha Mbambo, said the authority had implemented its audit function which would enable it to assess whether training providers were consistently adhering to accreditation requirements.

Mbambo said with the proliferation of bogus institutions locally and beyond Namibian borders, the NQA embarked on a marketing drive that educates the public while enhancing the NQA''s visibility.

The institutions that were accredited and reaccredited by the NQA are: Africa Institutional Management Services (AIMS), the Africa Leadership Institute (ALI), Anistemi College and Training Centre, the Centre for Training Projects Development (CTPD), the Development Aid from People to People Vocational Training School (DAPP), the Institute of Bankers (IOB), the Kambaku Lodge and Safaris CC, Namibia Evangelical Theological Seminary (NETS), the Namibian Institute of Mining and Technology (NIMT), Rundu Vocational Training Centre (RVTC), the Silver Spoon Hospitality Academy CC, the Tulipohamba Training and Assessment Institute and Zambezi Vocational Training Centre (ZVTC).
