National Accredited Technical Education Diploma (NATED) courses were created by the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET). The purpose of these courses is to provide students with both practical and theoretical knowledge. NATED Courses are registered on the National Qualifications Frameworks (NQF) and allow students to further their education.
ARE NATED COURSES ACCREDITED?
Courses are accredited once it’s been approved by a governing body like the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) or the NQF. Accreditation means the course is nationally recognised. For a course to get accreditation, it needs to meet certain requirements. NATED Courses are quality assured and nationally recognised. You may even choose to further your education once you’ve received your qualification.
WILL NATED COURSES INCREASE MY CHANCES OF GETTING HIRED?
A qualification does not guarantee you will get the job. That includes accredited courses and even qualifications like degrees. It only increases your opportunities and gives you more options to explore in the labour market. Accredited courses are recognised nationally and could increase your chances of being considered for a job, or being invited for an interview.
