What is a stackable credential?
SACAP Global’s micro-credentials are designed to be equivalent to components of accredited qualifications.
The micro-credentials are stackable, which means that they can be recognised as equivalent to modules within degree programmes at SACAP (The South African College of Applied Psychology).
Complete a specific combination of micro-credentials, enrol for the Bachelor of Applied Social Science Degree, and apply for module exemption.
Are the courses credit-bearing?
Our micro-credentials and short courses are non-credit bearing and are not on their own sufficient for entry into SACAP (The South African College of Applied Psychology) degree programmes or credit-bearing qualifications.
For those who meet minimum entrance requirements, module exemption via RPL is possible for a specific combination of SACAP Global micro-credentials.
What can I expect from the course?
Our courses combine content knowledge and practical experience, which means the skills you learn can be applied directly to your current, or future, work environment.
Courses are hosted on OpenLearning, a social learning platform where you can share, like, comment, reflect and chat with a community of like-minded peers.
What if I don't complete my assessments?
Unfortunately, if we don’t receive the work it can’t be graded. This means you will not receive a certificate nor badge for the course.
