What is a Skills Programme?
A Skills Programme is an accredited module that is usually extracted from a learnership. Many SETA’s provide funding for Skills Programmes which means that the programme needs to be linked to unit standards. The DTA will use modules from a learnership that would be most applicable to the subject matter identified, the specific requirements of the client or as specified by the funding document and then customise said programme for our clients ensuring that it is unit standard aligned.
Our clients can also peruse our programmes/learnerships and choose which modules or specific unit standards within a module are most applicable and then the DTA can present these as a Skills Programme. A Skills Programme requires a portfolio of evidence and will have to follow the SETA exit process but all learners will then have credits towards a qualification.
