Unisa now offers Short Learning Programmes (SLPs).
As part of a pilot project the distance learning institution has committed to offering selected short programmes to students who want to broaden their skills and knowledge.
The short courses are non-credit bearing and are offered outside of the Higher Education Qualification Sub-Framework (HEQSF).
While most of the short courses do not lead to formal qualifications, the SLPs are quality assured and promote the principle of lifelong learning and continuous professional development.
The aim of the short course is therefore to meet a specific learning need rather than award an NQF-based certificate.
The programmes include a wide range of hard and soft skills training, covering everything from barista skills to fundamental accounting.
SLPs are offered at centres located within the different academic departments of Unisa's Colleges.
