NATED Courses

1

NATED courses are also known as National Qualification Courses. The Department of Higher Education and Training designed each National Qualification course to train students for the workplace.

NATED courses use both theoretical and practical teachings to give students the best career-based learning.

NATED Courses Breakdown

NATED Courses are broken into the following levels:

  • N1 National Certificate: NQF Level 2.
  • N2 National Certificate: NQF Level 3.
  • N3 National Certificate: NQF Level 4.
  • N4 National Certificate: NQF Level 5.
  • N5 National Certificate: NQF Level 5.
  • N6 National Certificate: NQF Level 5.
  • N6 National Diploma: NQF Level 6.

With a grade 10 certificate, you can work your way to a National Diploma. You can also start various N4 National Certificates with a matric equivalent certificate.

Even if you passed matric with a National Senior Certificate Pass or a Higher Certificate Pass, you can still go on to get a diploma. Once you have entered the N4 National Certificate course, you can study your way to the N6 National Certificate.

Once you have an N6 National Certificate, you are required to complete 18 months of work experience in your chosen study field. This will be noted in a logbook that must be approved by the Department of Higher Education and Training.

After it has been approved, you can get your N6 National Diploma which is a level 6 on the NQF.
