Be Careful of Unaccredited Qualifications

June 14, 2019

The incidence of unaccredited private training institutions offering accredited qualifications is a national problem. Health and Welfare SETA (HWSETA) urges parents and learners to contact the HWSETA before enrolling with any training institution that claims to have accredited qualifications by the HWSETA. Even if the provider in question makes use of the HWSETA logo in marketing material, this is not a confirmation that they are accredited to offer these qualifications.

The accredited list of qualifications can be confirmed by calling the HWSETA’s toll free helpline on 0800 864 478.

If a learner/parent comes across an unaccredited institution offering HWSETA accredited qualifications please report it immediately to the HWSETA on the dedicated anonymous fraud tip line: 0800 204 967.
