Most of the skills you develop through work-integrated occupational programmes will enable you to start and run your own business. You should not only see these programmes as a way to get a job; use the skills to create your own job, and to employ others to work with you. There are many programmes available for developing entrepreneurial skills, such as the Further Education and Training Certificate: New Venture Creation (ID no. 66249, NQF Level 4, 140 credits) referred to in the section on unit standards.
