What Is a Skills Programme?

A skills programme is a set or cluster of unit standards gathered or combined to form a short programme bearing credits on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF).

Why Skills Programmes?

The skills programmes are often implemented to meet the needs of the employer to enhance employees’ knowledge for a particular skill. Skills programme can culminate into a qualification when an interested learner continues to pursue the completion of the remaining unit standards. Training is offered by an accredited provider.

At the end of the training learners receive a Statement of Results. Like the Learnerships, skills programmes are implemented by employers for both employed and unemployed learners

In 2023, NobleProg and its ecosystem of partners introduced three Media Information Communication Technology Sector Education Training Authority [MICT SETA] accredited skills programs. The programme consists of three skills programmes with 30 credits each. As per accreditation rules, the duration of each programme is three work months i.e. 60 days. Training is through blended online self-paced and instructor-led delivered remotely or onsite with a formal pass/fail assessment at completion of each skills program.

Upon completing training with NobleProg and having sat for associated assessment, delegates are encouraged to independently sit for industry examinations administered by various examining bodies.

NobleProg shall work with Delegates pre-selected by your organisation. If required, NobleProg can administer an online aptitude benchmark test, which aims to gauge potential delegates’ chances of mastering the taught material. This, however, should be used as a guide and not a selection criterion.
