Overview of the National N4 – N6 qualification
The National N4 – N6 programme (NATED) is aimed at post matric students who would like to enter the job market fairly quickly. The courses are aimed at encouraging self employment and at developing students in the practical component of the work environment.
These courses lead to a National N Diploma: after completing N6 theory in the classroom, students need to acquire 18 months relevant, practical work experience, after which they can apply for the National Diploma.
Note: the National N Diploma is evaluated as an M+3 qualification.
