Project Monitoring & Evaluation
Project Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) is a critical tool that EWSETA deploys to ensure that the projects being implemented, are progressing according to the project implementation plans and that the training is being conducted according to the regulatory requirements and is of quality. It is also an early detection mechanism of any challenges within a project that may cause the project to be delayed and not concluded as per the initial project completion dates, allowing EWSETA and the project implementers to proactively mitigate challenges.
This process requires very close collaboration between the Quality Assurance Committee (QAC) and the Provincial Operations Department. M&E reports are used for the approval of project tranche payments (especially for trade related interventions)
When a learnership or skills programme has been concluded, the training provider needs to apply to EWSETA for exit moderation to take place. This is a requirement for both SETA-funded and sector-funded interventions. This is the final step required before a learner can be registered as “completed” and issued with a certificate.
It is a process that is managed by the QAC to ensure that the assessment of the learning outcomes described in the NQF standards and qualifications is fair, valid, reliable, and unbiased.
The National Artisan Moderating Body (NAMB) conducts exit moderation for apprenticeships.
