SOVEREIGN’S COMMITMENT

We aim to provide professional and vocational education and computer training programmes. Further, we commit to providing training and development programmes that will improve individual, team and organisational performance.

We ensure that set objectives are understood and communicated to learners throughout training to enhance learning, and ensure continuous measurement and evaluation of all training initiatives.

We meet the skills shortage needs that our country faces, and train learners to the exacting South African Qualifications Authority approved standards. Moreover, we provide a basis for further personal development, promote occupational and social development, and align training and development to accommodate special needs of learners. We also assist learners with skills needs analyses prior to training.

We strive to provide continual constructive feedback to learners during training, and ensure that all training will be outcomes-based; aligned to SAQA unit standards. We provide a Statement of Results and a certificate of accomplishment to learners that have been assessed as competent at the end of the training session, as well as provide ongoing support and help to learners after completion of training.
