The Future of Learnerships & Qualifications

In preparation for the change-over from the legacy qualifications to the occupational qualifications in June 2024, we are gearing up our programmes to ensure we continue to deliver agile, disruptive and innovative learning to our students. The high quality of our accredited occupational qualifications will remain unchanged, and our graduates will continue to gain the skills they need to remain future fit and relevant for a changing tomorrow.

Entry Requirements: In addition to the standard entry requirements as outlined on the QCTO Curriculum Documents, students enrolling in an Occupational Certificate should be employed in a role that aligns with the outcomes of the qualification, to enable them to successfully complete the required workplace modules.


Novia One Business School is an accredited training solutions provider with several leading institutions, including the following:

"An investment in knowledge pays the best interest."

Recognition of Prior Learning

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) awards a person an accredited qualification for what they already know and how they apply it in the workplace. This takes into account an employee’s relevant knowledge, learning and work experience. At the Novia One Business School, we are passionate about the impact RPL can have on our society and as such, we have successfully rolled out this initiative to several organisations with an overall competency rate of 98%.

Advancing Your Career Using
Online Credentials

Acquiring and managing online credentials has become an integral aspect of professional development, significantly enhancing one’s career trajectory. In the digital age, employers increasingly rely on online platforms to identify and recruit top talent. Possessing relevant certifications, degrees, or specialised training not only demonstrates a commitment to continuous learning but also serves as a tangible validation of one’s skills and expertise. Online credentials provide individuals with the opportunity to showcase their proficiency in specific areas, making them stand out in a competitive job market.
