“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” Nelson Mandela

When choosing a qualification, it is important to choose one that will benefit you in the long run. Most people work until they are at least 65-year’s old. You need to make sure that you choose a worthwhile qualification that will stand the test of time. Here are five reasons why you should get a National Diploma.

  1. They are accredited

There are a lot of qualifications out there and not all of them are recognised in South Africa. You need a qualification that is backed by the Department of Education. A recognised qualification will open doors for you. It will assist you in finding the right job and becoming a success.

  1. You will earn more money

People with a recognised qualification generally earn much more than people without one.  This is simply because the more you learn, the more skills you have, the more valuable you are to employers. A qualification also proves that you can learn, apply yourself and complete tasks well. Employers are always looking for people who add value to their businesses and a National Diploma will give you that value.

  1. You can study from anywhere

We offer National Diplomas via distance learning. This means that you do not physically have to go to class. Instead you can study from anywhere in South Africa. No expensive transport costs. You can study from home. And, if you are working, you can study in the evenings. This will help you to earn while you learn.

  1. They are skills focused

One of the great things about a National Diploma is that it teaches you the skills you need to do your job well. Other qualifications often focus on theory and learning pages and pages of information. A National Diploma on the other hand shows you how to do the job. It teaches you the skills you will need on your first day of work and beyond. Read more about our interview tips here

  1. You will gain practical experience

In order to obtain your diploma, you will need to do an 18-month internship. You can use this internship on your CV when applying for a job. You can include the skills you learnt and references from people that you worked with. Internships are a great way to learn the ins and outs of the working world. They teach you business etiquette, time management, people skills and more.
