Our lawyers have been central to the drafting of several national and provincial education and training laws, including the South African Schools Act, the Higher Education Act and the Skills Development Act.
We have advised education departments at regional, national and provincial levels, higher education institutions, statutory bodies and non-governmental organisations operating in the education sector. This has included advice on governance matters including powers and functions; standing orders and delegations; administrative procedures and policy frameworks including programme accreditation and national review frameworks; access to information requests and appeals against refusals to provide access; and programme accreditation, institutional audit and national review disputes.
We have also advised a range of public bodies on the National Qualifications Framework and the quality assurance and accreditation of education and training institutions and their programmes.
Cheadle Thompson & Haysom Inc. has a detailed understanding of the regulatory framework governing all levels of the education sector. In addition to our specialist experience, our lawyers have also facilitated the merger of educational institutions, lectured at universities, served on institutional councils, and provided governance training to council members.
