Occupationally-based Skills Programme

The programme will help you complete a skills programme that is nationally recognised.

A skills programme is a short, occupationally-based programme that will lead, on successful completion, to award of credits towards a qualification registered in terms of the National Qualifications Framework.

A qualification consists of a minimum number of credits. For example, for the qualification General Education and Training Certificate: Business Practice (Qualification ID 61755), learners should achieve a minimum of 120 credits. These credits are made up through a number of unit standards (learning units) that are required to complete the qualification.

A skills programme may consist of one or more unit standards, as determined by the relevant Sector Education and Training Authority (SETA), which form part of a qualification. This programme will help you achieve 14 of the 120 credits for the qualification mentioned above, if you are found competent during assessment.

Because a skills programme is occupationally based, it consists of theoretical training as well as practical training in the workplace.
