"Photography suits the temper of this age - of active bodies and minds. It is a perfect medium for one whose mind is teeming with ideas, imagery, for a prolific worker who would be slowed down by painting or sculpting, for one who sees quickly and acts decisively, accurately." 

Edward Weston

“Something is happening. We are becoming a visually mediated society. For many, understanding of the world is being accomplished, not through words, but by reading images.”

Paul Martin Lester, ‘Syntactic Theory of Visual Communication’.

What is a Skills Programme?
A Skills Programme is occupationally based and, when completed, will constitute credits towards a qualification registered on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF).
Skills Programmes are part time courses consisting of either one or more unit standards, which when added together can eventually lead to a qualification.
With a Skills Programme, a student learns a specific amount of work, focused on developing specific skills, instead of having to complete an entire qualification.
