The National Certificate (Vocational) Marketing course is a 3-year qualification primarily aimed at providing the certificate holder the opportunity to be employed in industry without any additional training. The various subject components all complement and support each other to best reflect the student’s interest and also needs.

This course is a combination of theory and practical components. It develops the certificate holder’s various cognitive abilities to not only operate in the vocational field but also to be responsive to a dynamic, ever-changing economy.

The NC(V) certificate holder has two paths they may choose: the primary one being employed in industry by filling the skills gap within South Africa, and the other to further develop their knowledge and skills at an institution of higher learning.

The course is structured in such a way as to have a seamless transition from the TVET training sector to the Higher Education (HE) sector, i.e. University or University of Technology. An NC(V) introduction letter, when submitted with an application document, will allow the certificate holder the opportunity to be considered at the same level as all other applicants wishing to gain access to HE institutions.
