A century Anglo American, one of the world’s largest mining companies, founded the Maccauvlei Learning Academy project (MLA). Since its inception, 100 years ago, MLA became a Further Education and Training (FET) institution which by law could offer formal programmes up to NQF level 5.
MLA found that a number of students were on senior management level and needed more advanced NQF levels to be presented. Six institutions of higher education which were known for high quality training was approached and Central University of Technology, Free State (CUT) won the bid.
In January 2012 the first intake of 42 delegates followed by 47 delegates in June 2012 were made in the BTech Human Resources Management qualification. All the candidates were accepted after an assessment of Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) was completed, to ensure they qualified for the NQF level 7 of the programme.
CUT is proud to report that 38 of the 2012 group will graduate in the BTech Human Resources Management qualification on 11 March 2013.
“These graduates may continue their studies with CUT on the postgraduate level by enrolling for the MTech Human Resources Management programme. The massive success of the 2012 group, have lead to 52 more delegates enrolled for the year 2013.” said Dr Tshedi Naong, Head of Department: Business Management.
