Studying with us
When you choose to start studying a course, it is important to know that you are signed up with a reputable college. You will need to be registered with a college that has been through the accreditation process so that your potential employers will recognise your qualification and know that you can bring something to the table when you join their team. When a training institution is inspected for its accreditation, the accrediting body looks at the ability of the training institution to successfully offer the course for which they are being accredited. This means they look at the structures, venues, study materials, financial health, tax status and BEE status as part of the accrediting process.
Skills Academy has passed these and all the other accreditation requirements in full, check out our accreditation in full here: Accreditation

If you missed out on your opportunity to get a Matric Certificate, then there are many other options for study. Some of them are promoted as “Matric Equivalent” qualifications. So before you sign up for a Matric Equivalent Qualification, you must make sure you understand how such a qualification compares to a Matric Certificate.There are many institutions that can offer a quality curriculum and assessment in accordance with the regulations of the government. These institutions need to be registered with the Independent Examinations Board (IEB), and students need to meet the entrance requirements of the institution.
