The courses are offered at levels 2,3 and 4 of which each is a year long. A student is issued with a certificate on successful completion of each level of study. After completing level 4 a student will be issued with a National Certificate (Vocational).
On 26 November 2009 the Government Gazette No 32743 was published which stipulates the minimum admission requirements for Higher Certificate, Diploma and Degree Programmes requiring a National Certificate (Vocational) at level 4 of the National Qualifications Framework.
This clearly stipulates that while the NC(V) Level 4 makes the student eligible for admission to higher education, it does not guarantee a student admission to any programme of study. Within the context of this policy, the right of higher education institutions to set specific admission requirements to particular programmes is confirmed.
