30 January 2015: Staff Learning Centre - Recognition of Prior Learning programme

The Recognition of Prior Learning programme is aimed at those who have worked in First Line Management or Administration for many years but have no formal qualification in their area of expertise. The RPL process identifies and assesses your knowledge, skills and experience against specific standards and assessment criteria for a particular qualification. In this way you can be credited for skills, knowledge and experience built up through formal, informal and non-formal learning that occurred in the past. Two programmes are being offered, FET Certificate: Business Administration (NQF level 4) or National Certificate: Management (NQF level 3)

Please book online via the course booking form.

For more information please contact Sibongile at the UCT Staff Learning Centre via email or on (021) 650-3812.
