Faculty Of  • SAQA ID No. 66879  • NQF5 • 60 Credits • 6 Months

This part qualification will provide an opportunity for learners who exit the schooling system, but who wish to continue to obtain occupation-specific knowledge and skills to develop such competencies and also to receive formal recognition for the skills they have acquired in a particular vocational/occupational area. It will create the opportunity for learners with an interest in a particular vocational/occupational area to develop their skills and knowledge thereby improving their employability and at the same time create opportunities for them to study further in their chosen field.

This part qualification is aimed primarily at giving the learner technical, theoretical knowledge, practical knowledge and workplace knowledge and skills required in their chosen occupational/vocational area.

The design of the part qualification is such that if taken sequentially with related N part courses i.e. N4+N5+N6, it enables learners to progressively obtain the National N Diploma once the required practical work component of either 18 months or two years, as required for the specific occupational area, is completed.

The part qualification as a single entity has value in the workplace as it equips learners with vital knowledge and skills that enable them to be productively employed at entry level positions in an occupation.

The part qualification can be used for updating, up-skilling and/or continuing education and training in related occupations
