The world of work is constantly changing; this places a premium on ensuring that one’s skills are current. The short courses unit offer learners the opportunity to deepen capabilities and gain technical skills at a steady pace. As part of Wits University’s strategy to make education opportunities more readily available to learners, Wits Enterprise ensures that this learning is available in a format that suits your needs; face-to-face, blended learning and online university accredited short courses from four faculties; Commerce, Law & Management (CLM), Engineering, Humanities & Health Sciences.
In this conversation, Egbe and Dimple discuss how learning and education is changing and why short courses offer an accessible pathway for individuals looking to grow and upgrade their skills in their current jobs. Dimple also shares how the Wits University’s short course offerings have provided unskilled, unemployed individuals with an opportunity to acquire skills that render them employable within a short time frame.
