Division For Teaching Excellence Centre For Academic Planning And Quality Promotion

The functions of the Centre for Academic Planning and Quality Promotion (CAPQP) are twofold: academic planning and quality promotion.

Academic Planning
  • CAPQP promotes the strategic alignment of academic planning with the UJ mission and national requirements, i.e. the alignment of qualifications to the Higher Education Qualifications Sub Framework (HEQSF) and programme submissions to the DHET, CHE and SAQA. Academic Support in the planning, approval and good governance of qualifications is an integral part of academic planning at UJ.
  • CAPQP provides support for the planning of new qualifications in line with the HEQSF, national and institutional policy, and supports the management and review of existing qualifications in line with institutional and national policy.
