Ramaphosa has just signed – National Qualification Framework Amendment Bill
C.V. – Qualification Fraud
The new National Qualifications Framework Amendment Act aims to prevent South African individuals from misrepresenting their qualifications by allowing for the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) to establish and maintain separate registers for professional designations, misrepresented qualifications and fraudulent qualifications.
In addition to these new registers which will effectively ‘name and shame’ individuals who had been found to be holding fraudulent qualifications, the act also introduces harsh consequences for those who are caught lying about their achievements.
Under the new act, any person convicted of an offence is liable to a fine of R5million and/or to imprisonment for a period not exceeding five years.
