Moving with occupational directed skills programmes

Occupational directed skills programmes are created with industry subject matter inputs, from a full occupational qualification registered on the occupational qualification sub-framework in South Africa’s national qualifications framework. Learners can also claim credits towards the occupational qualification. The Quality Council for Trades and Occupations (QCTO) is the custodian of the occupational skills programs.

Motor industry occupational skills programs are ready for use and are listed below.  These programmes are linked to the National Qualification Framework (NQF) levels and have credit allocation and documentation accessible on the QCTO website:

For a suitable Skills Development Provider (SDP), also known as training centre, one can consider your local public Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) College and/or private provider.

Skills Development Providers, both public and private, need to get accredited to deliver the program. 

For further information and moving your local public Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) College and/or private provider along to deliver any of these programmes or other occupation-related programmes, feel free to engage Sifiso Mkhonza mkhonza.s@qcto.org.za at the Quality Council for Trades and Occupations.
