What is a Skills Program?

Skills programmes are designed to address the skills gap and enable continuous learning through the a attainment of both theoretical and practical knowledge.  As a Skills Programme is conducted against registered Unit Standards at an Accredited Training Institution, this means that on successful completion of the Skills Programme, Learners obtain formal recognition for the Unit Standard(s), in line with the courses undertaken.

Skills Programmes involve three main parties:

  • The Business/Employer, who can also sponsor the Skills Programme
  • The Training Provider, Facilitator of the programme
  • The learner or employee
