City & Guilds provides qualifications and certifications directly linked to workplace skills, as compared to pure academic degrees which certify knowledge but not competence on the job. This approach to learning and certification has made the name of City & Guilds synonymous with practical excellence in 22 occupational sectors, and 120 countries worldwide and has earned it worldwide recognition as a developer of competent and qualified workers, bench marked against the best in the world. It awards over a million certificates every year in over 500 different vocational trades. Their qualifications are valued by employers because they’re developed in conjunction with key industry bodies – so they’re always relevant and up to date.  (Data source: SACA)



Culture, arts, tourism, hospitality and sports sector education and training authority (CATHSSETA)
CATHSSETA's main function is to contribute to the raising of skills - of those already employed, or wanting to be employed - by ensuring that people learn skills that are needed by employers and communities. Theta ensures that training is to agreed standards, within a national framework wherever possible. It is no good if someone is trained in one province if their qualifications are not recognised in another. They also ensure that all training is subject to quality control and compared to the best international standards.  (Data source: SACA)
