Other Services

QCTO

ODI closely follows the progress made by the Quality Council for Trades and Occupations (QCTO). Workshops are regularly attended. ODI also participated in the development of selected qualifications.

The Quality Council for Trades and Occupations (QCTO) is a quality council established in 2010 in terms of the Skills Development Act No. 97 of 1998. Its role is to oversee the design, implementation, assessment, and certification of occupational qualifications, including trades, on the Occupational Qualifications Sub-Framework (OQSF).

The QCTO also offers guidance to skills development providers, who must be accredited by the QCTO to offer occupational qualifications.

Psychometric Assessments

Should you require a more in-depth assessment of your potential candidates, in addition to standard interviews and history of the person’s experience and performance, psychometric assessments should be done.

Psychometric assessments will provide you with:

  • Psychometrical and competency assessments, with standardised perspectives on the individual.
  • A reliable and valid measure of a person’s potential and attributes.
  • A more accurate prediction of job performance, and development potential.
  • An objective assessment, which is more likely to be fairer than subjective methods.

A good assessment methodology can support your organisation and the individual in:

  • Succession planning, and organisational structuring.
  • Recruitment and selection processes.
  • Personal growth, and career development.
  • Identification and development of potential and talent.
  • Highlighting prevailing team dynamics.

All proposals for psychometric assessments are done in association with our assessment partners.
