Together We Pass had alot of experience supporting students studying via distance learning with UNISA. They saw how hard it was for students to get in, and once they got in how much it took for them to be able to pass, and then to finish their qualification.
They launched the Academy with an offering that not only is open to more students, but is affordable and highly supported. No student gets left behind – no one should be barred from further education simply because they did not finish their Matric, or because they cannot afford high fees.
Students are able to work and study at the same time, earning money and gaining valuable work experience.
With this offering Together We Pass aims to change how students are supported in distance learning, and set a new standard in the industry. TWP Academy courses are worth signing up to if you want to have a truly supported learning experience.
Accreditation of TWP Academy courses
The accreditation landscape in South Africa is quite complicated, and there is alot of concern from students about accreditation due to bogus colleges cheating students, or offering sub standard qualifications that are then not taken seriously by employers.
At TWP Academy all our courses are accredited, other than our short courses. At this point in South Africa a short course cannot be accredited, so this is considered to be acceptable by accrediting bodies and the government in our country.
