Non-credit-bearing short courses include a variety of short learning programmes for which no credits are awarded. The differentiation of such learning programmes is based on the following:

• The short learning programme is too short in terms of notional hours to meet the minimum requirements for 1 unit standard; for example, a one-day seminar where an attendance certificate is issued.
• The short course covers less than 1 credit towards a unit standard or qualification where only one specific outcome is covered by the learning programme rather than all the specific outcomes as stipulated in a unit standard or sub-set of learning in non-unitstandard-based qualifications.
• The purpose of the short course does not lend itself to the award of credits, i.e. personal enrichment, where learners are not formally assessed.
• The courses are highly customised short courses developed for a particular purpose (not for credit), possibly dealing with learning programmes on so-called ‘soft skills’.

What are the short learning programmes best for? Why have them?
