Golden Ratio College has been registered with the Independent Examinations Board (IEB) to deliver the Foundational Learning Competency Programme.

Foundational Learning Competence is a part qualification consisting of two learning areas: Communications and Mathematical Literacy. It describes the minimum competence needed in these two key areas that is required by people to function optimally in the world of work. The FLC describes the minimum competence required of learners to deal successfully with occupational learning at NQF Levels 2-4. The FLC is registered on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) by SAQA.

The Foundational Learning Competence is a compulsory part of all new qualifications developed under the auspices of the Quality Council for Trades and Occupations (QCTO) at NQF levels 3 and 4. This does not mean that developers of qualifications at NQF Level 2 cannot include Foundational Learning as a requirement. It has replaced the ‘fundamentals’ in Mathematics and Communications that were required previously in all qualifications at NQF Levels 1 to 4.

It is a part qualification registered at NQF Level 2. It has a credit value of 40, 20 for Foundational Learning Competence in Communications and 20 for Foundational Learning Competence in Mathematical Literacy.
