Norkem Leadership Development Institute gets Accreditation
On 5 December 2014 Norkem Leadership Development Institute received its Accreditation from Local Government Sector Education Training Authority, What a great achievement.
But why is accreditation important?
Although graduating from an accredited program does not guarantee jobs or licensure for individuals, it may facilitate such achievement. It reflects the quality by which an Educational Institution or a Program conducts its business. It speaks to a sense of public trust, as well as to professional quality. Accreditation provides assurance that the Program in which you are enrolled or are considering enrolling is engaged in continuous review and improvement of its quality that it meets nationally endorsed standards in the profession, and that it is accountable for achieving what it sets out to do.
Accreditation provides a formal process for ongoing evaluation and improvement of your Program and course development outcomes, a process by which students and administration can work together in advancing the Educational Institution’s mission. Accreditation ensures public accountability of a Program or an Institution – that the Institution has the means and demonstrates the outcomes for its Educational process that are consistent with its goals and objectives.
Norkem Leadership Development Institute is also validated and registered with National Treasury to conduct training in Minimum Competency training. This programme is intended for Municipal Accounting Officers, Chief Financial Officers, Senior Managers, other Financial Officials; Heads of Supply Chain Management and Supply Chain Management Officials in adherence to the prescriptions of Sections 83, 107 and 119 of the Local Government: Municipal Finance Management Act 56 of 2003 and Municipal Regulations on Minimum Competency Levels (RSA, Government Gazette 29967, 2007)
