City-and-Guilds-Graduates-a City and Guilds Courses

We currently offer City & Guilds Courses in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Motor Vehicle Engineering, Information Technology for Office Application plus ITQ Levels 1 to 3, and under the Hospitality umbrella, we offer Food Preparation, Housekeeping, Food and Beverage Service, Reception Services and Accommodation Services.

We hope to be able to extend these in the future to other subjects such as Culinary Arts and Cosmetology.

The skills foundation and skills proficiency courses do not require any prior qualifications except an interest in the subject. There are no examinations for these courses. Pictures and videos of practical assessments undergo marking and verification by both the Centre and City and Guilds after which, certificates are awarded. Higher level courses will have both examinations and practical assessments.

We appeal for bursaries for students whose parents cannot afford these courses, we are also looking for professional industry partners who can offer our students work placements.

Course Delivery at Sunshine
A team of highly qualified and certified professionals with years of experience in the industry is responsible for delivering these life-changing courses.

Classes are held for 4 days a week with special weekend classes available for those who work Monday-Friday.

Methods of Assessment and Evidence Collection
Not all qualifications are the same and not all learners are the same. That's why we use different types of assessment to suit different needs, giving our students the best chance of success.  These include video evidence, pictures, worksheets and oral questioning.

Portfolio based evidence
These are paper-based information management systems used for evidence gathering and assessment and verification of the evidence.  Sunshine Zimbabwe Project recognises that not all students are able to write formal examinations; therefore this method is used for our competence-based qualifications with pre-defined assessment criteria.  They simplify the assessment process without sacrificing assessment quality.

The pre-requisites for entry are simple:
  • An ability to communicate;
  • Basic reading and writing skills; and
  • A desire to achieve.
