What’s FLC?

Foundational Learning Competence (FLC) is a part qualification that consists of two learning areas: Communication and Mathematical Literacy. 

It outlines the minimum level of competence required for optimal functioning in the world of work and for occupational learning at NQF Levels 2-4. It is a part qualification registered at NQF Level 2 and carries 40 credits in total.

Each learning area carries 20 credits. The FLC is directed at learners in occupational qualifications registered on the NQF at Level 2, 3 and 4.

Entry requirements for the FLC


Learners who are competent at ABET Level 3 or 4 in English or Maths Literacy, which is equivalent to Grade 9 or NQF level 1.

It will be advisable that learners undertake a placement assessment with the relevant provider before doing the FLC. The placement assessment tries to ensure that the demands of the learning programme match the learner’s level of competence.

This qualification is a compulsory component for all new qualifications developed by the Quality Council for trades and occupations (QCTO) at NQF levels 3 and 4.

Numerous qualifications and subsequent job opportunities are available on NQF 2, 3 and 4.


Note that we are able to provide training at our premises, your workplace or any mutually agreed venue.
