Will I get a job with an accredited qualification?
It is important to know an accredited qualification does not necessarily guarantee you a job. However, it improves your employment opportunities. Because these courses are recognized, you stand a greater chance of being considered for employment.
With that being said, in our industry as freelancers, your portfolio of work done, is more important than you “qualification”
What is a Non-Accredited course?
A non-accredited course is a learning programme that is not recognized on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF). It is also not connected to an external accreditation body. Non-accredited courses focus on equipping you with a specific skill-set. It is great for learning a new skill or improving an existing skill-set and will add value to your CV, allowing you to apply for a job.
Why study a non-accredited course?
- It is more affordable than accredited qualifications

- You do not need a Matric to study non-accredited courses
- It will add value to your CV
- You can gain a new skill-set in a short time

As you can see, both accredited and non-accredited courses are valuable. However, before choosing a course, you have to establish what you want to achieve career-wise. If you want to pursue a professional career with possible credentials behind your name, an accredited course will be sufficient. If your goal is to get a job in a specific field, then a non-accredited course could equip you with the needed knowledge and skills.
