Skills Development

What is Skills Development?

Skills shortages are a key threat to the future growth of South African businesses. We believe that companies should have a suitable skills development plan to optimise the technologies that are deployed, systematically developing employees to address the skills gap as a great way to achieve empowered human capital.

Corporate Training Unlimited provides consultative training and development solutions to corporate organisations, government, SMME’s, technology partners and vendor partners. 

We offer one, two- and three-year full-time qualifications with sessions from Monday to Friday, after which the participant could obtain a national qualification and international certification/s (where applicable).

We offer one, two, and three-year qualifications with classes in the evenings & Saturdays. Upon completion, the learner will obtain a national qualification and international certification.

*Selected programmes offer self-paced options where Hybrid learning applies.

  • Vocational qualifications: 2 evenings a week and 2 Saturdays per month.
  • Technical diplomas: 3 evenings a week and 2 Saturdays per month.

A learnership is a work-based route to obtaining a qualification. It is an education and training programme comprising both structured practical workplace (on-the-job) experience and structured theoretical training. The duration of a learnership is approximately twelve months and results in a full national qualification. CTU has over 14 registered ICT learnerships up to NQF Level 5 up to NQF Level 6.

One of the major benefits of a learnership to a company is the impact on the skills development aspect of your B-BBEE scorecard. CTU Training Solutions has B-BBEE experts available to assist in ensuring that learnership interventions are implemented in a manner that maximises the B-BBEE scorecard. Points are based on a Generic Scorecard.

These are skills-based and vendor-specific courses (non-credit bearing). International certifications are available to certain relevant courses.

Through the Microsoft Office 365 platform, CTU uses Teams as a virtual classroom to deliver lecturer-led, interactive teaching virtually. Teams allow lecturing staff to facilitate a training session live to participants with a whiteboard and recording capability. Participants will be expected to attend the practical, group, and lab classes on campus a minimum of two days a week as per the campus schedule. Participant support sessions with the facilitator will also take place on a one-on-one basis, either virtually or physically at the campus per appointment or per the academic schedule.
