Open Learning Unit


The Open Learning Unit came into being in January 2003 to service an ever
growing need to provide services to people who could not attend full-time
classes. This unit offers all the diploma courses on Business and Engineering
studies on part-time basis. This includes information packs, contact sessions
and lecturer support through the course. Evening classes for all the above
courses are dependant on demand.

Computer literacy courses are offered at very affordable prices.

Most recently the Open Learning Unit affiliated themselves with Assessment
College of South Africa to offer assessor training. Assessment College has
been servicing the corporate sector for over ten years. They are a quality
driven organization with ISO 9000 accreditation and a record of excellent

It is in the pipeline to introduce Financial and Business Management as
evening classes. These are National Diploma Courses with Umalusi
accreditation. It would be ideal for people in these sectors to take
advantage of this opportunity to acquire a National Diploma in eighteen
months. The other eighteen months would be in-service training which most
employees are already receiving.

This unit specifically caters for Business and Industry.

Majuba College is now a licensee of Assessment College of South Africa. This agreement allows for the Open Learning Unit of the college to offer assessor training courses under the auspices of Assessment College. Our staff has been fully trained in the use of the relevant methodology, courseware and practices of Assessment College as well as the quality assurance processes and procedures.

Majuba College, having recently acquired autonomy from the Department of Education in terms of governance and staffing due to the implementation of the new FET Act, is actively seeking to engage in public-private partnerships and is committed to offering a variety of market related, industry relevant skills courses that will add value the National Skills Strategy and assist in alleviating the skills shortage. A case in point is assessor training. Most organizations need staff who are assessor trained in order to retain their competitive advantage. It will also soon be a prerequisite for every educator to be assessor trained.

Assessment College of South Africa is a reputable, well established organization with over 10 years of experience in training and development. It was one of the first training providers to be accredited by the ETDP Seta and one of the first to be
ISO 9001:2000 listed.

Majuba College is one of the few government institutions to offer these courses. Our training is configured to suit our client’s needs. We also offer site based training, depending on class numbers.
