Further Your Studies
If you’ve always wanted to go to college and further your education, then the fact that you don’t have a high school qualification might have been your biggest hurdle.

Live your life without regrets by going after what you want. Your biggest investment should be yourself and your development. One of the best things you can do is to get your matric, enrol for a course and upskill yourself.
Our Matric Courses
We at Skills Academy believe in second chances, and therefore we focus on making studying accessible to all. It’s rare to find a learning institution that allows you to get your grade 12 certificate from the comfort of your own home.
Never finished school because you had other responsibilities to take care of? No matter what the reason may be, you now have the opportunity to get your grade 12 certificate as an adult. You can enjoy flexible learning hours and take care of your duties while studying.
Chances are you are not happy with your matric results. If you failed a subject, or don’t meet the college or university requirement, you can redo your matric to get the results you want. You can combine your old results with the subjects you rewrote.
Entry Requirements for Matric
