Voted Best College for 12 years running – here’s why!

Tuesday, January 5, 2021 - 13:37Author: Boston City Campus & Business College

With over 100 different career paths, and all degrees, diplomas and higher certificates offered fully online, plus 45 campuses for those who wish to try and experience some form of masked varsity life, Boston continued on its successful throughput of students even during the 2020 pandemic.

Deciding where and what to study are huge decisions, and now in 2021 with the world in a state of flux and chaos, this decision is a scary one. 

With over 100 different career paths, and all degrees, diplomas and higher certificates offered fully online, plus 45 campuses for those who wish to try and experience some form of masked varsity life, Boston continued on its successful throughput of students even during the 2019 pandemic. The high student satisfaction quotient of students also continued due to online, video and messaging support, both academic and personal. 

There are many factors to consider when you choose a place of Higher Learning, especially when environmental factors are so imposing on everyday life. Create a check list of what is important from your higher education institution! These should include:

  • Flexibility of study options to include online so that no crisis will disrupt studies
  • A study ‘anywhere anytime’ approach that still allows access to contact centres for use of facilities, peer discussions, access to training advisors
  • Direct and personal access to lecturers to explain material 
  • Convenient location to avoid costs of student res, and travel.
  • Fees are important – so find out – are my text books included and if not, how much extra will they cost?  Can I make payment arrangements?
  • Because of the strained economic times we now face, Boston has committed for semester A of 2021 to NO FEE INCREASE!
  • Very important – is the degree or diploma accredited locally? And globally recognised? Will I be able to take my studies further both locally and internationally? 
  • How will the institution help prepare me for the world of work, and what assistance is given?

What type of history does the institution have?

Why does Boston place value on international accreditation? Anyone aspiring for a corporate career needs a global mindset in the current business environment. 'International' is a serious concept in today’s marketplace. It is a highly valued aspect of ones CV. Even when you operate locally, it makes you that much more attractive to your local employers. Boston was awarded accreditation as an Independent Higher Education institution with the British Accreditation Council (BAC). Boston is also a candidate for accreditation of specific programmes with the ACBSP (Accreditation Council of Business Schools and Programmes), United States of America. 

All Boston Higher Education and occupational qualifications are accessible online, allowing students to easily study from home/work, or at a support centre. While distance learning traditionally involved sending the learner a set of books, Boston preferred a different approach and curated online lectures in order to teach and explain text, and give over personal industry experience from the lecturers. This raises the academic success rate of students. Boston students personally contact their lecturers when they need.

Boston prepares students for work – it’s that simple. Whether as a business owner, an entrepreneur or an employee. The Graduate+ Programme is part of the Boston ethos of putting our students at the centre of our educational offering. Boston provides a personalised learning experience, meeting the educational and work environment needs of each student. The Graduate+ programme offers students a guarantee that should they not find work within 6 months of graduation, Boston will assist them through the CV programme in training of CV building and job interview techniques, attempt to place them in employment and/or provide them with a higher qualification for free, 

Experience has shown that matching interests to a chosen career vastly increases academic and employment success. Therefore, the Career Compass was developed in order to ensure an appropriate match between interest and work. Academic as well as workplace success soars, when you are studying or working with what you love. With results available immediately from the online assessment, you can be applying for the most appropriate career within one hour! 

Boston’s offerings include:  Postgraduate; Higher Certificates, Diplomas, and Degrees, short Learning Programmes; Succeed at short courses and basic entry level work based Occupational Qualifications

Will The Matric Results Be Delayed?

Tuesday, January 5, 2021 - 13:23Author: Lauren Chawula

The marking of the matric final examinations commenced on Monday while South Africa experiences its second wave of Covid-19. This begs the question whether there will be delays in the release of the matric results.

Article Category: News

The 2020 academic calendar had experienced many delays due to the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. This saw 45 000 exam markers commence with the marking of the matric exam scripts across South Africa on 4 January.

The marking is set to end on 22 January and for the duration markers will be working under strict Covid-19 protocols in marking centres to prevent the spread of the virus. 

181 marking centres, this includes schools, have been identified and prepared for the process of marking according to the Department of Basic Education (DBE).  

The markers are faced with a big task as this group of matric learners is the largest ever to write the final exams with 1 058 699 candidates registered to write the exams. 14 million exam scripts must be marked by the 45 000 markers within 18 days.  

The DBE's spokesperson Elijah Mhlanga spoke to SABC News saying that not all the markers are at the marking centres yet as the centre managers and chief and senior markers are undergoing orientation for the marking of the exams. 

In the Eastern Cape all markers will be tested for Covid-19 to ensure that marking centres are safe. 

Markers across the country will be screened throughout the day that they spend at the marking centre. 

“We know that there’s a lot of anxiety around gatherings, but we have done all that we could to make sure they are safe.”-DBE spokesperson Elijah Mhlanga

"When they arrive in the morning they will be screened, during the day they will be screened and sometime in the afternoon they will also be screened because we want to pick up if there is anything changing in terms of their health which might need the attention of the medical professionals." said Mhlanga. 

Those markers who fail to disclose their positive Covid-19 status will be charged with misconduct warns the DBE. 

Although the marking of the exam scripts is occurring later this year than it has previously, Mhlanga says the matric results can be expected to be collected by the candidates on 23 February. All eyes will be on the accreditation bureau Umalusi to see if they certify the exams, which were leaked, as delivering a credible outcome.

How To Embrace Your College Experience As A First Year Student

Tuesday, January 5, 2021 - 12:28Author: Terrique Alie

Starting college and being a first year student can be an exciting yet an undeniably overwhelming experience. The feeling of fear surrounded by excitement and anticipation is most commonly expected by many first year students. Many students adjust relatively well while others find it difficult to adjust being on their own in a completely new environment.

How first year students can embrace their college experience

  • Acknowledge that your feelings are normal:

The transition from high school to college can be a huge adjustment. One cannot predict how your life will be as a first year student unless you actually experience it. The good news is that you are not the only one feeling the way you do, as there are many others going through similar experiences as yours. Give yourself time to adjust as the feelings will pass in due time and before you know it, your college life will start to feel like home.

  • Prioritise your time and have a planned schedule:

As you transition to living independently on your own or preparing for college, you have the responsibility to manage your own time. There will be no mom or dad to help you prioritse your college schedule and you will have to make use of a planner to help you keep on top of things. This will help you adjust easily and your planner will be your central reference point to avoid feeling stressed out. 

  • Find your college tribe:

We all know that starting college means leaving friends and family behind and stepping out into a new unfamiliar territory. It means that students will have the opportunity to meet new people and be able to put yourself out there. The more people you engage and connect with, the less lonely you will become and the sooner you will find your inner tribe. 

  • Find out what extracurricular activities are available:

Many colleges offer a wide variety of extracurricular activities to students. Extracurricular activities range from social clubs, sports, volunteering or doing an internship. These activities provide students with an endless amount of opportunities to learn new skills and develop new passions and talents. 

  • Seek out a spot that is conducive for studying:

There are many ideal spots students utilise when it comes to studying or to use their time sparingly. You may enjoy sitting at a local coffee shop or visit the college library where you are able to concentrate best. Always bear in mind that different environments work for different people. It is important to know that when choosing an environment where you can concentrate best can be a critical factor in achieving academic success.

So there you have it, these are a few tips to guide you through your transitioning of being a first year student and making the most memorable college experience.

Government Called To Prioritise Teachers For Vaccinations

Tuesday, January 5, 2021 - 12:02Author: Lauren Chawula

The government is being put under pressure to prioritise teachers for the vaccine rollout as more than 1 600 teachers have died since March 2020 due to the coronavirus in South Africa.

Article Category: News

Teachers have worked through a tough academic year in 2020 and many lost their lives while doing so due to the Covid-19 pandemic. At the end of 2020 the Department of Basic Education's director general Mathanzima Mweli expressed concern on behalf of the department for the number of teachers who were dying over the festive season. He described this as very alarming. 

In the middle of December 2020 South Africa entered into the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic and teachers were dying at an alarming rate even after schools had closed on 15 December.

This is why the South African Teachers Union's (Sadtu) CEO Chris Klopper has said that the government should prioritise teachers in the vaccine rollout. 

Klopper told eNCA that teachers had to teach without any personal protective gear and had to rely on wearing masks, washing their hands and following social distancing protocols. They were vulnerable to the many students who came from different households in various communities where there were Covid-19 outbreaks. 

Klopper says that there seems to be no clear plan surrounding getting the vaccine and rolling it out to the public and frontline workers. 

"Teachers are also frontline workers and they must be protected."

"Our call is to prioritise teachers as a priority group, get them vaccinated.... We can ensure that teachers are at school everyday and they are able to teach"- Sadtu CEO Chris Klopper

The Health Department aims to vaccinate approximately 40 million people by the end of 2021. The vaccine rollout strategy involves three stages in which healthcare workers will receive the vaccine first, then essential workers, the elderly and those living with comorbidities. 

“We have been advised that we should expect the vaccines in the second quarter of 2021. We have been in constant contact with Covax who have advised us that they are working very hard to bring the batches releases forward to quarter one,” said the department in an official document.

The rollout is expected to begin in April. 

The South African government is in discussion with many pharmaceutical companies, which include Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca. 

The deputy director general of health Dr Anban Pillay, who spoke at a briefing, said these discussions could result in a vaccine being delivered to the country in the first quarter of the year.

School Rotational Timetable To Remain For 2021

Tuesday, January 5, 2021 - 12:00Author: Sakinah Samuels

Now that the country is seeing high increases in cases as we tackle the second Covid wave, parents have started asking questions when it comes to their childrens' schooling. Will the rotational timetable for school attendance remain in place?

Now that the country is seeing high increases in cases as we tackle the second Covid wave, parents have started asking questions when it comes to their childrens' schooling. Will the rotational timetable for school attendance remain in place?  

Well, Spokesperson for the Department of Basic Education, Elijah Mhlanga, has said that it most probably would.

It looks like we'll continue with the rotational approach because it assisted us to reduce the infection rate in the country. Schools did not become super spreaders as some people have said earlier. 

Mhlanga said that along with the rotational timetable, social distancing and complying with regulations helped a lot.

Parents and children are urged to wear their masks as you put everyone else at risk if you don't. 

The Spokesperson continued to explain that the department cannot have normal schooling hours as this would mean that social distancing requirements won't be possible with more children in schools.

The 2021 school year is expected to commence on 27 January and will have 200 schooling days with a limited number of school holidays.

Minister of the Department, Angie Motshekga, has said, "We are fully aware that the country needs the school calendar for effective planning purposes, and we have worked hard to ensure it is done properly, taking into account the disruptions that have occurred in 2020."

The department hopes to use 2021 to start on a clean slate, with enough teaching weeks with the Minister continuing to say, “All teachers know that catching up on lost learning, or learning recovery, is not an easy, quick activity but requires a lot of dedicated time.”

With the school year being extended, more efforts are encouraged from parents and teachers as learners will need more support to cope.

The first official day of Matric marking is done and dusted following a year full of bumps and even some controversies when it comes to the Matric Class of 2020. With marking underway, the Department hopes to finish on time and deliver results on time as well.  

Marking commenced on 4 January with the Department aiming to have 18 marking days. Matric results are expected to be released on 23 February.

When speaking on the first day, Spokesperson for the Department of Basic Education (DBE), Elijah Mhlangu, said:

(quote tool) The first day went really well. We did not encounter many challenges but we didn't have the full complement of markers in our marking centres as yet.

They expect other markers to come later in the week but explained that things went well with those markers who were present on Monday.

Should a positive case be found within the marking centre, the Department has made sure that a medical professional available near every centre who will ensure that everyone present is in good health and complies with requirements. 

Isolation rooms and centres are available for infected persons to get the help they need while also making sure work continues. The Department seems to be confident that should all protocols be follows, everyone will stay safe during the marking period. 

Seeing that Universities are commencing later and a delay in Higher Education was seen as well, this would then lead to there being no delay in admission should marking not finish on time. 

The results being released on 23 February should leave enough time for Matrics of 2020 to approach Universities as they should have already applied, explained Mhlanga.

We are making sure that the marking isn't disrupted so that we can ensure that we stay on schedule. One day we lose is going to affect the entire schedule and we don't want to see that happening as it could affect negatively on the lives of young people.

Should there be a delay with marking, the Department of Higher Education will have to move it's dates for handing admission decisions over to students.

More Than 50 Western Cape Teachers Have Died In One Week

Monday, January 4, 2021 - 16:32Author: Lauren Chawula

Despite the deaths of many teachers, the WCED says that it has done everything it can to prepare for the reopening of schools amid the rising number of Covid-19 cases in South Africa.

Article Category: News

Since Monday 28 December 2020, 73 Western Cape Education Department (WCED) officials have died due to Covid-19. 56 of these are teaching staff, 9 are non-teaching staff and 8 officed-based staff. 

Throughout South Africa hundreds of teachers and support staff have died due to Covid-19 over the December festive season when the country entered the second wave of the pandemic. 

In an interview with CapeTalk, WCED spokesperson Bronagh Hammond says that the recent deaths of teachers reflects the rising fatal nature of Covid-19 and increasing infection rates across the country. 

Hammond says the WCED does not anticipate a spike in Covid-19 cases as a result of schools reopening and teachers being at school. 

"We have prepared for the beginning of the school year... the big question is what [lockdown] level will we be on at that stage." WCED spokesperson, Bronagh Hammond 

The Department of Basic Education Director-general, Mathanzima Mweli says the DBE is confident that the 2021 academic year will go ahead as scheduled.  

Teachers and school management teams are expected to return to classrooms on Monday 25 January 2021 in preparation for Wednesday 27 January when learners return to school for the 2021 academic year. 

Mweli has said that it may take a while before the positions of those 1 600 teachers who have died due to the coronavirus will be filled again. 

"As I have been saying throughout, we can fill in the post but the difficulty is that we will not get the calibre of teaches that we had with the experience accumulated over many many years." Department of Basic Education Director-General, Mathanzima Mweli

 According to Hammond, the WCED will receive 11 000 classroom assistants from the national government as well as support from the department's existing substitute teacher register. 

Hammond says that the Covid-19 safety protocols put in place at schools have worked well and that most of the cases reported at schools were as a result of infections occurring in the communities and outside of schools.

Theatre Company Calls For Performing Arts Graduates

Monday, January 4, 2021 - 14:24Author: Lauren Chawula

The Kwasha! Theatre Company is calling on performing arts graduates to join the company in 2021.

Article Category: News

The Kwasha! Theatre Company is a performing arts theatre company which was launched by the Market Theatre Laboratory and the Windybrow Arts Centre in 2018. The company's purpose is to serve as a bridge between graduates' education and their professional careers. 

They are currently looking for outstanding performing arts graduates to join their company. 

The company provides guaranteed employment as a performer/theatre-maker for 10 months and offers the opportunity for artists to gain professional work experience and a space to learn and practise the business skills needed for this industry. 

They do this by offering a programme of exciting and diverse creative projects and collaborations, this results in a collection of live and digital performances created by Kwasha!. Opportunities to create original work also exists in the programme granted that it reflects the company's unique voices and experiences as young South Africans, as well as work that challenges the conventional norms of theatre.

The effects of Covid-19 in 2020 saw the company creating innovative work which involved a binaural experience in which the audience could listen to the theatre production as theatres were not allowed to open due to Covid-19 restrictions. 

Performing arts graduates who have graduated from a reputable training institution within the last five years are eligible to be members of Kwasha! theatre company.

To apply, applicants must submit a CV and a motivation letter (that clearly states the skills, knowledge and other attributes that the applicant would be able to contribute the company) via email to Rudy Motseatsea at [email protected] by 5pm on Wednesday 6 January 2021. 

Apply Now!

Shortlisted applicants will be contacted by Monday 11 January 2021 for an audition on 20 or 21 January 2021. 

Final decisions will be made by Friday 22 January and the company plans to begin operating from 1 February 2021.
