You may be either already in employment and wish to further your career by studying for a professional qualification, or alternatively, you may wish to follow the ABE Fast Track* route to a university degree. Either way ABE is here to support you and to help you reach your goals.



ABE NQF Qualifications


ABE offers a series of qualifications which are shown on the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) and the National Qualification Framework (NQF). This section is about NQF qualifications which are offered in Botswana. Click here for more information on QCF qualifications.

ABE qualifications are very flexible. Each qualification is made up of a designated number of subjects and the optional nature of these subjects enables you to specialise in the areas that particularly interest you.

Subjects can be studied in any order. Several subjects are common to more than one programme so you can switch between qualifications or easily move to take a second qualification at the same level.

The progression route with ABE qualifications


ABE qualifications provide a framework for you to progress through successive levels as you develop your skills and knowledge of business. The structure enables you to build on what you learn until you reach your intended level and then move on to your ultimate objective – such as university or a job based on your qualification.


After completing your Certificate, you have three choices. You can progress on to our QCF Level 5 Diploma, you can enter the first year of many degree programmes, or you can get a good job thanks to your recognised qualification. Certificate holders have the skills and knowledge needed for administrative roles.
