Abstract
PCF2 // The Career Preparation Programme (CPP) that is offered by the University of the Free State is a unique South African example of a bridging programme offered through open learning in a resource based learning mode. An additional feature of the programme is that the programme is a joint venture between higher (universities and technikons) and further education (colleges) institutions. This programme is in line with the national goals and priorities with the latest National Plan on South African Higher Education (2001) which put bridging programmes and the support of specifically learners from disadvantaged backgrounds as a national priority for redress. // The primary focus of this paper is to give an outline of the structure, requirements, subjects offered, management, successes and limitations of the programme. //
