The PLUS Programme (Professional Learnership University of Stellenbosch) is an SU initiative whereby staff members without formal qualifications obtain training in administration as part of their career development. Since its inception in 2006, more than 200 staff members completed the PLUS Programme. According to Jan Knight of Human Resources, staff members in the PLUS Programme have classes two days per month, they receive mentorship, write an open-book examination, after which they get their qualification in administration from SU. It is aimed at assistants who do administrative work in their divisions or departments. Staff members who do financial administration in their division qualify to enrol for the international Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) course. This qualification, which is recognised worldwide, enables them to further their studies in accounting. The administrative section is offered at NQF level 4 and the AAT at NQF levels 3 and 4.
