You Talk About Accredited and non-accredited Programmes. What is the Difference and is one Better than the Other one?

An accredited programme is one that gives you a recognised qualification. A non-accredited one does not. That doesn’t mean one is better than the other. An accredited programme might give you a little bit better chance to find a job or get paid more, but a non-accredited one is not without value. Non-accredited courses might not give you a recognised qualification but they still show employers that you are serious about your own development. They are also cheaper to do than accredited courses, and they normally don’t require you to have a matric certificate. It is up to you to decide if you want to do an accredited or non-accredited course but both of them are a step in the right direction.
