This service offers assistance to foreign professionals who have a three-year, or higher, degree (Undergraduate, Honours and Masters). Specifically, those wanting to have their qualifications recognised by the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA); be registered with the relevant professional body or to those want to find employment related to their field of expertise. Following a screening process, advice, sponsorship or training could be offered on translating of documents and the application process with SAQA. Artisans wanting to complete their Trade Tests with the various SETAs are also assisted.
Foreign Matriculants who wish to enter tertiary education in South Africa, are also given non-financial assistance to ensure that the SAQA application process is completed properly. FPD works closely with clients to develop their professional reputation and offers intensive job application guidance and training support.
