Don’t despair if you don’t have a Matric certificate! You will find numerous further education and training (FET) colleges that offer courses that don’t require you to have a Matric certificate to gain entrance to the courses. These colleges have designed courses ranging in length from 3-6 months up to 24 months:
At Skills Academy you can study the below courses even without a Matric:
At The Decor School you can study the below courses even without a Matric
If you don’t have Matric, and you still want to study, look out for courses that recognise prior learning. For example, if you are older than 23 years, some of these courses will recognise that you have gained experience in the workplace and allow you to register.
Alternatively, look out for courses that only require grade 10 as an entrance requirement.
Even if you don’t have Matric, you can still further your studies to:
- Find a full-time job that allows for growth opportunities, i.e. promotion.
- Pursue a career in many different fields.
- Provide a steady home for your family.
There are endless opportunities, even without a Matric certificate. Don’t let it hold you back! Here are only a few of the FET colleges you can enrol at for a course without a Matric certificate:
