National Certificate: Management - Stores and Warehousing (NQF 3)

The National Certificate: Management – Stores and Warehousing provides a framework for learners to develop competencies that will enable them to become competent junior managers, supervisors and team leaders.

Junior management includes, but is not limited to team leaders, supervisors, first line managers, section heads and first level of management in an organisation at which an employee has other employees reporting to him/her.
