Management skills are still critical skills required across organisations and industries within South Africa. Generic management skills can be applied across a wide range of specialised fields. 

This programme offers learners the ability and skills to move into a supervisory or management role from an operational role. This qualification lays the foundation for the development of management qualifications across various sectors and industries. 

It specifically develops management competencies required by learners in any occupation, particularly those who are currently operating as junior managers.

The scope of management covers four domains: leadership, self-management, people management and management practices. This qualification addresses each of these domains with generic competencies, thereby enabling learning programmes to be contextualised for specific sectors and industries. 

Provides opportunities for people to transfer between various specialisations within management.  This will therefore enable management competencies to be strengthened, and enable managers to better manage systems, processes, resources, self, teams and individuals in various occupations. It is intended to empower learners to acquire knowledge, skills, attitudes and values required to operate confidently as individuals in the South African community and to respond to the challenges of the economic environment and changing world of work.
