It is unfortunate to discover that many Grade 12 learners and students have difficulty in finding employment after school or after completing their studies. Although learners and students typically have academic and technical skills, they often lack those basic workplace skills, also referred to as employability or work readiness skills.

This workplace readiness program, National Certificate in Business Administration, was developed to bridge this gap between that of school/studies and work, and aims to equipped learners with the skills as required in securing gainful employment.
