TRAINING

Which NQF level #Learnerships and #Apprenticeships can I apply for?

Let’s work out how many credits you have and what you should do to find the right opportunities.

What if I didn’t finish high school?

The Number 1 solution, go back to school, find a college or other alternative!

And that’s the truth. But if for some reason you can’t, then here’s the advice you need.

Credit Accumulation Transfer (CAT)

Even though your schooling is incomplete, you are credited for what you have completed.  Here’s a table listing how you can work out your credits:

CAT. How SAQA allows Learners to be credited for Maths and Languages

Which NQF levels can I apply for?

If you completed Grade 10: apply for NQF level 2 and 3 opportunities.

If you completed Grade 11 or some of Grade 12: apply for NQF LEVEL 3 and maybe 4.

Special note:

  • Many employers and training providers want NQF L4 applicants to have Matric in place. This is because a job based (occupational) NQL4 qualification can be very demanding if you don’t already have Matric.
  • If you qualify for Language and Maths credits, the employer’s training costs and your time commitment can be reduced.

 Use SETAs to find opportunity

There are 22 SETAs, each responsible for different industries. Remember to be clear about the NQF level you are looking for.

Which qualifications are you looking for?

Each SETA promotes a different set of qualifications based on the industries they represent. For example, BANKSETA promotes banking qualifications.

BANKSETA also looks for solutions to scarce skills in the Banking sector. If they find that financial institutions need IT skills, the SETA will fund IT training.


TWO DETAILS TO KNOW ABOUT THE QUALIFICATIONS YOU WANT

1. Which SETA is in charge of the qualifications you want

2. Which SETAs are offering funding for those qualifications.  Eg: if you want to be a software developer, check each SETA to see who is offering training. Check PIVOTAL grants.
