Short courses have a place in the South African education system although they are not necessarily formally captured on the NLRD. Short courses help enhance practice and improve competency, skills and knowledge. They are meant to fill a gap in skills development and they should enable learners to apply their newly gained knowledge and skills to practical situations in the workplace. The aim and value of short courses lie in the development, up-skilling and multi-skilling of human resources, irrespective of whether they are credit-bearing towards formal qualifications.
