Teacher

A teacher works with students and helps them learn concepts in subjects such as science, mathematics, language arts, social studies, art and music. They then help them apply these concepts. Teachers work in pre-primary schools, primary schools and high schools/secondary schools. Teachers work in either private schools or public schools.


Available Qualifications:

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS
The minimum admission requirement is an appropriate 360-credit, NQF Level 6 undergraduate diploma or bachelor degree, which includes sufficient disciplinary (subject content) learning in cognate (i.e. similar, related), appropriate academic fields to enable lecturing a technical or vocational subject or field as taught in institutions offering TVET programmes. The disciplinary knowledge (or a substantial part thereof) must have been studied at the exit level of the entry qualification.

Where disciplinary subject knowledge is insufficient, additional learning units/modules/courses may be required before the student may register for this qualification. A selection panel may be constituted to determine suitability of candidates.

On entry to the programme, students will be assessed (using benchmark tests) on their ability to demonstrate adequate proficiency in academic literacies (LOLT, conversational proficiency in an official African language, numeracy skills and basic ICT skills). If the student lacks proficiency in these literacies stated here, she/he will have to enroll for additional modules to develop these literacies. It should be noted that credits from these modules may not form part of the 120 credits for this qualification.
