  3. University Education

  4. Skills Development
    • The national skills development programmes are implemented through the Sector Education and Training Authorities (SETAs).

Open Learning

Open learning is a way of studying that allows people to learn where and when they want, and to receive and send written work by either mail or email. This form of learning addresses learning barriers and promotes access.
