About SACAI

Who we are

South African Comprehensive Assessment Institute (SACAI) was established in 2012. It is a non-profit private assessment body that assesses the National Senior Certificate (NSC) and General Education and Training Certificate: Adult Basic Education and Training (GETC: ABET) qualifications to a diverse group of candidates.

 

SACAI addresses the growing demand for quality and exceptional customer care in external summative assessments for educational institutions and training providers predominantly in distance education.

 

SACAI merged with Benchmark Assessment Agency (BAA) and this partnership has provided both assessment bodies with the opportunity to harness synergies and transform into a formidable South African brand that offers credible and affordable assessment products and services. 

 

SACAI’s assessment- and moderation policies are governed by and comply with the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) principles that meet the criteria for the NSC curriculum as determined by the Minister of Basic Education, currently referred to as the CAPS curriculum and the ABET GETC qualification, as determined by the Minister of Higher Education and Training, which is currently unit standard based.

 

SACAI’s candidates who write and pass the NSC examination in Grade 12 (NQF 4) and the ABET GETC Level 4 (NQF 1) are issued with certificates by Umalusi respectively. Umalusi is the Quality Council responsible for the sub-framework General and Further Education and Training of the National Qualification Framework (NQF).

Our vision is to be a quality, reputable and sustainable private assessment body in the FET and ABET sectors.
