This qualification has been developed to enable learners who are particularly interested in Educare and Child Day Care to develop competencies which will enable them either to study further or to be employed and be productive in the sector at entry level and/or second tier level. This qualification is aimed primarily at giving the learner technical, theoretical knowledge, practical knowledge and workplace knowledge and skills required in Educare and Child Day Care. The design of the qualification is such that it enables learners to progressively obtain the qualification by completing the related N4, N5 and N6 courses. The N4+N5+N6, regardless of the manner in which they are completed, must be followed by or integrated with the relevant 18 months of practical workplace learning for the learner to be awarded the National N Diploma, Level 6.
Commonly, students apply to study with us for a National diploma (N4-N6) and skills certificate. A national diploma is a widely recognised higher-education qualification, while a skills certificate is a course of study undertaken after one has achieved any qualification. The prerequisite for a National diploma is a Grade 12 or any equivalent qualification and for the skills certificate is any qualification attained by the student. Please feel free to enrol for any course or contact us for information.
