UFH Management Questioned On Management Of Outbreak

After reports came of over 30 students at the University of Fort Hare testing positive for the coronavirus after a night of partying, it is now believed that the cases are actually more than the 33 management said there was. UFH's management is now under fire due to the way they handled the outbreak.

"We were left behind ... if you want to close the University, who's at disadvantage? Who's in the position of disadvantage? It's the black child. IIt's the black person," said a student.

The University has acknowledged that they did not have the best systems in place but has said that they have made amends for it.

At the University of Fort Hare (UFH), a Covid wave has emerged with over 30 students testing positive after a party in East London where Covid-19 health protocols were not followed took place. Majority of the students are from the University's Nursing Science and Law faculties. 

UFH has said that they will not be sending people home as they were advised against doing so. What they will be doing instead is that they'll try to lock down the campus to an extent and refuse entry and exit to certain people.

The Student Representative Council (SRC) at the University is of the opinion that management could have handled the situation better and with more care.

I've been calling from this side of the University to say measures must be put in place throughout. 

- SRC President at UFH, Siphiwe Ngcenge

The affected students are currently in quarantine and isolation at a UFH residence with 134 rooms. This residence is situated at the University's Alice Campus.

A complaint the SRC has received is that there is insufficient sanitiser available at the residences and this he says is problematic. "We are supposed to have the sanitisers floor by floor, kitchen by kitchen, bathroom by bathroom, because the students all share these things," said Ngcenge.

Over 1000 students have been tested so far and UFH is working with the Department to limit the spread of the virus. 

The University stated the following in a media statement, "Health Department in the Eastern Cape has launched testing and tracing campaign after the recent outbreak of COVID-19 at the University of Fort Hare in the East London campus. This after 30 students tested positive amid allegations of non-compliance to Alert Level 1 Regulations where masks were not worn, social distancing not observed, non-washing and non-sanitising of hands was not done at the tavern in Quignet, East London on 3rd October 2020."

Unions Warn Against Setting Matric Pass Rate

Thursday, October 22, 2020 - 16:36Author: Simbongile Makanda

The announcement of the matric pass rate is an exciting moment for many, but uncertainty seems to be in the air this year. Some provinces have already set targets for the pass rate, but unions and experts have warned against this.

Article Category: News

The KwaZulu Natal Edcuation department has set a pass rate of 80% for the matriculants of 2020. The class of 2019 achieved a pass rate of 76.2%.

Earlier this month, some education experts warned that the matric class of 2020 will not produce good results come 23 February 2020. They predicted that this year's matriculants will have a lower pass rate and fewer distinctions than matriculants in past years.

National Professional Teachers’ Organisation of SA (Naptosa) spokesperson Thirona Moodley said the organisation is against setting a pass rate for the class of 2020. 

"What benchmark can be used to set targets for a year such as this? This year has been an abnormal year for all. Grade 12 pupils came face-to-face with their teachers for 11 years and, unfortunately, in their final school year, they were forced to do much self-studying, which is new to them,” she said.

SA Democratic Teachers’ Union (Sadtu) provincial secretary Nomarashiya Caluza said the union is proud of the work that teachers have done, but believed that setting a target for the pass rate would be tough. 

A professor of economics at Stellenbosch University, Servaas van der Berg said the average matriculant has most likely lost "about a quarter of the scheduled school days this year". 

"Thus on average, they would be less prepared for the examination than in previous years"

He said recent data from a survey had shown that only 88% of matriculants had returned to school in July.

He said the possibility of a high pass rate was low, even for learners who attend schools with good resources. 

"It is inevitable that the matric pass rate would be significantly lower...Even at the top end, one would expect to see fewer distinctions"

Professor Labby Ramrathan of the University of KwaZulu-Natal suggested that the matric exam be reviewed in order for learners to be given a wide range of questions to choose from.

"The learners would have an opportunity to answer questions in areas where they had  some exposure through teaching rather than to answer questions that they may not have covered at school."

Professor Ursula Hoadley of the University of Cape Town said most schools said they would have covered the necessary content by the time exams start. 

"A million learners will be able to write the most consequential examination of their lives. One can only imagine the mess we would be sitting with if the department of basic education had not pushed the boat out to secure these exams."

The exams will start on 5 November and end on 15 December 2020.

Some Matrics Might Only Write Next Year

Thursday, October 22, 2020 - 15:55Author: Simbongile Makanda

Some matric learners might not be able to write their final exams this year. This is according to new exam protocol introduced by the Department of Basic Education. More than 1 million candidates are expected to write the final exam.

The Department said learners will not be allowed to write if they test positive for Covid-19. There have been arguments that this will encourage learners and parents to not disclose their test results if they test positive.

This could lead to an increase in Covid-19 cases which could be disastrous for the department. 

Elijah Mhlanga, said the department can’t provide alternative exam venues for learners because the department does not have the budget to accommodate these potential learners.

“We don’t know how many invigilators we’ll need. The examinations system is managed and planned based on certainty...This opens up a new avenue of uncertainty and a lot of anxiety for the system as a whole. That’s just on the administrative side.”

He said the department is aiming to protect learners who have not been infected from those who have already been infected.

“We need to align our planning and protocols to the national guidelines for people who have Covid-19. You need to quarantine and stay away from other people until you recover.”

Mhlanga has not only discouraged schools from hosting matric balls, but he has also discouraged learners from attending them. He argued that learners would be at risk when attending social gatherings.

“There’s a mismatch when it comes to the priorities of people, and what is important.”

Elijah Mhlanga explained that learners who get sick now will only be able to write their exams in May or June 2021. 

Candidates will have to be at the exam venue an hour and a half earlier in order for their temperatures to be scanned. This is in an effort to protect all candidates who will be writing exams.

Did you know that you have more options and can apply for a NSFAS bursary at Teachers' Centres? Well, now you know. NSFAS has opened their applications for 2021 funding and will close them on the 30th of November. 

The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) has now formed a partnership with the Department of Basic Education and this will allow prospective students to apply for a NSFAS bursary at one of the fifteen teachers' centres nationwide.

The aim of the partnership is to reach out to those students who meet the requirements and in need of financial assistance but unable to access NSFAS funding. This is usually due to lack of internet facilities or application resources in their areas.

- Spokesperson for NSFAS, Phatisa Ntlonze

The teachers' centres available to applicants are as follows:

Kwazulu-Natal

  • Sizweni Teachers' Centre (Newcastle) 
  • King Cetshwayo Teachers' Centre (Empangeni) 
  • Zululand Teachers Centre (Vryheid) 
  • Hammersdale Teachers' Centre
  • Ugu Teachers' Centre (Harding) 
  • Umlazi Teachers' Centre (Durban central business district)
  • Pinetown Teachers' Centre

Free State

  • Xhariep District Teachers' Centre (Koffiefontein)

Eastern Cape

  • Lusikisiki Teachers' Centre
  • Amathole Teachers' Centre (Butterworth) 
  • Libode Teachers' Centre
  • Sterkspruit Teachers' Centre

Mpumalanga

  • Mondi Science, Career Guidance and FET Skills Centre (Piet Retief) 
  • Nkangala Teachers' Centre (Maganagobushwa) 
  • Bohlabela Teachers' Centre (Graskop)

“These centres are also available to use for free for grade nine pupils who have an interest in studying at any Technical and Vocational Education and Training colleges. Out of school youth who require funding can also use these centres,” said Ntlonze.

NSFAS has also embarked on a mission to assist people all over with applying for financial aid support. NSFAS officials are travelling all over during an application drive to give assistance to anyone planning on studying in 2021. This is NSFAS' latest efforts to help the youth of South Africa unlock their futures.

Those individuals needing help with their NSFAS applications should make sure to not waste a trip and visit the NSFAS offices as they are closed. You can however visit an NYDA or Teachers' centre where they will assist you with whatever you need. 

Those wishing to find funding for their 2021 year of studying are advised to keep an eye on NSFAS' social media pages as they give updates on where they'll be visiting next and be sure to bring the required supporting documents so they can help you with your application.

No New Applications Accepted For SASSA R350 Grant

Thursday, October 22, 2020 - 12:31Author: Sakinah Samuels

President Ramaphosa announced that SASSA is going to extend their Special Relief Distress grant of R350 for another three months. However, despite the grant being extended, the agency won't be taking new applications.

President Ramaphosa announced that SASSA is going to extend their Special Relief Distress grant of R350 for another three months. However, despite the grant being extended, the agency won't be taking new applications.

"The long and short of it is that we are not taking new applications," said SASSA's spokesperson, Paseka Letsatsi.

He continued to say that this does not because they don't want to take them but that they are rather waiting for directions from the Minister in terms of the method. 

During his address on the country's economic recovery plan, the President did however mention that there are talks happening about introducing a Basic Income Grant. 

Letsatsi insists that they will do their best to ensure the system works smoothly.

Directives on how this extension will be carried out and handled will be issued by South Africa's Minister of Social Development, Lindiwe Zulu, by Friday, said Letsatsi. 

Once the directives are published we as an organisation will be ready to hit the ground running.

Paseka Letsatsi

The R350 grant was originally supposed to end in October but will now run until January 2021. This extension will cost Government another R6 billion.

Letsatsi also says that due to all the enquiries SASSA receives from beneficiaries on the disbursement of their funds, the agency might have to embark on an intensive beneficiary campaign. 

He said that they've appealed to their beneficiaries and encourage beneficiaries to submit correct banking information or they'll be kicked out of implementation. 

On the appeals process, Letsatsi said, "The intention is that we resolve them as quick as possible".

The Department also made sure to have a system in place that would not, as the Minister said, get them in trouble with the Auditor-General. This comes after the AG's report showed that thousands of people who were not supposed to receive the grant, did.

When asked about the effectiveness of the appeals process from SASSA's side, Minister Zulu said previously that it is important to remember that the Department handles appeals and not SASSA. She also said that her Department is doing the best that it can but "not adequate, not enough" because it's a new set of work that's being done.

Those who are rejected and are not happy with their application outcome are encouraged to either call 0800 60 10 11 or email [email protected] with their complaints in order to access the recourse mechanism.

The minister has reminded learners that they will be writing their exams under different circumstances this year since Covid-19 caused many disruptions to the education system. 

The combined exam, scheduled to start on 5 November will be the largest exam that the department has administered. More than 1 million candidates are expected to write. 

“We certainly have never had to manage a number that large before. It is going to be a huge task, but one that we will need to ensure it is managed and coordinated smoothly.”'

She assured learners that all has been done to make sure that the exam centres are safe ahead of the exams.

"Remain focused, I know you can make it. Good luck, revise and just get ready for your exams,” said Motshekga.  

Learners have been encouraged to use the learning resources that the department has made available. 

This includes Woza Matric which is a programme that the department introduced to help learners access learning materials and study tools. 

The programme airs seven days a week, from 8:00 - 10:00 and 13:00 - 15:00. Learners can access it on SABC 3, Openview Channel 122 and DStv Catch Up.

  • Accounting, Economics
  • English First Additional Language
  • History

Explore Data Science Academy’s offers exciting new public courses in 2021

Thursday, October 22, 2020 - 12:08Author: EXPLORE Data Science Academy

Accelerated demand for data skills that organizations need to thrive in the digital age are now included in a range of public courses offered by the Explore Data Science Academy in 2021. These include Data Analytics, AI for Machine Learning, Business Intelligence and Software Engineering. The broad categories taught are NANO-Qualifications and Digital Skills and within each of these a wide variety of options are available.

Article Category: Course Info

The EXPLORE Data Science Academy has announced that its successful six- and 12-month data science courses will again be offered in 2021, with exciting new additions.  This initiative will add further impetus to EXPLORE’s continuing  transformation of data science education in South Africa.

Following the success of its 2020 courses, the Academy has added several new modules in line with changing trends in the field.  Shaun Dippnall, CEO of EXPLORE, says, “After the 2020 experience, we updated the course content to align with latest thinking, tools and technology.  We’ve added new up-to-date projects and have adapted our delivery model to the needs of our customers, given the impact of Covid-19. 

The courses cover the full range of data skills that organizations need to thrive in the digital age, including Data Analytics, AI for Machine Learning, Business Intelligence and Software Engineering.  The broad categories taught are NANO-Qualifications and Digital Skills and within each of these a wide variety of options are available.   

Massive supply-demand gap

“There remains a massive supply-demand gap across the world in the area of data science skills.  The pandemic, the significant shift to digitization and the emergence of new technologies have made it essential for more South Africans to be trained in this area,” he adds.

According to Mindcor.com: “Data scientists, data analysts and artificial intelligence specialists are fast becoming the most sought-after skills in organizations.”

Applicants are encouraged to carefully consider the range of options available in the curriculum.  “We’re offering more choices to meet the needs of the wave of digital transformation in South Africa.  There are more online options and a variety of levels and course durations to suit people’s pockets and schedules,” Says Dippnall.  

Financial Support

Eligible applicants requiring financial support can apply for an EXPLORE loan, whereby they pay a reduced monthly rate to fund their education and continue to pay off the loans after completing the programme.  

Candidates can choose a full-time, six-month on-campus course that costs R60 000, or a part-time, online, 12-month course, which costs R30 000 if paid upfront or R3 000 a month if paid over 12 months.

Diverse experience or qualifications welcomed

 Dippnall says, “We are casting the net wide in terms of candidates.  Applicants may have any previous qualification and experience and be currently employed (the online, part-time course) or looking for a career change (the full-time, on-campus course).  The outcome is the same: a work-ready opportunity in a highly skills-deficient sector with a qualification that effectively guarantees employment.”

The EDSA has trained close to a 1000 data scientists through its fully sponsored, full-time 12-month course over the past four years and placement of graduates in employment remains high.  

“Because we are connected with numerous employers and have an excellent understanding of the skills they need, our current placement rate is over 90 percent of the students we’ve taught,” Dippnall says.

For anyone wanting to study data science at the EDSA there are qualifying criteria.  Candidates for this particular full-time course need to live in close proximity of either Johannesburg or Cape Town.  “Our application process is very tough.  We test for aptitude and attitude using the qualifying framework we’ve built over the years. If you’re smart enough, you’ll be accepted,” says Dippnall.

Fears Of Loadshedding As Matric Exams Draw Close

Thursday, October 22, 2020 - 10:53Author: Simbongile Makanda

The Western Cape Education Department fears loadshedding could be a problem, as many matric learners begin their final exams. Eskom had blackouts last year during exam season, which affected many learners.

Article Category: News

Western Cape Education MEC Debbie Schäfer has asked Eskom to make sure that learners have electricity during the exam season. According to Schaffer, the Department of Basic Education has been in talks with Eskom.

The province saw 9 000 learners complete their computer applications technology (CAT) practical exam on Wednesday, while 854 learners are expected to complete their information technology (IT) practical exam today.

“I urge Eskom to put contingency measures in place to avoid a repeat of last year’s disruption. Our matrics have been through enough this year - it is not fair to cause them more anxiety.”

She said the exams team would be keeping a close eye on Eskom. In the event of loadshedding during an exam, schools would have to follow standard protocol.

Basic Education spokesperson Elijah Mhlanga  said the department always makes an effort to be in talks with Eskom during this time of the year in an effort to avoid power outages.

Mhlanga said problems would arise if the demand for electricity is higher than the supply.

Eskom said although it does everything in its power to avoid loadshedding, loadshedding could remain a possibility if the electricity system is compromised.  

"Should load shedding be expected, Eskom will make every effort to provide the department with timeous notification so that contingency plans can be acted upon," Eskom said.

National Association of School Governing Bodies general-secretary Matakanya Matakanye said all schools should be supplied with generators. 

“The education minister must have a conversation with the minister of energy to hatch a plan on how to save the exams without disruptions. Eskom must save enough energy now for exams.”

Eskom said it has kept storage dam levels topped up in an effort to give the electricity system enough support to keep the power on while learners write their exams.

Spongein: New Free Matric Revision App

Wednesday, October 21, 2020 - 16:30Author: Simbongile Makanda

Spongein is a new app on the block to help make matric revision a bit easier. Learners can access all of the features and revision content that the app has to offer until the end of 2020. 

Advertisement

Spongein is a South African app that provides revision for learners in 7 subjects, including Afrikaans, English, Life Science Maths Lit, Physical Science and Zulu. At the moment, the app only covers subjects in the grade 12 syllabus.

The app was founded by Tsepo Sehona and Lebone Segolodi in an effort to keep up with the shift from contact learning to online learning.

Sgolodi said the app will soon expand to cover subjects in grade 10 and 11.

“We currently aim to make learning easier for grade 10, 11, and 12 students from the comfort of their homes, launching with Term 3 content for the aforesaid grades. For this time period, we are only focusing on matriculants and they can access the app for free.”

The app not only provides revision for subjects, but it also provides inspirational videos from well-established people in various industries.

Award-winning musician, Cassper Nyovest makes an appearance in the videos, offering learners insight on the different paths available to them after school.

Sehona said the app acts as a platform to empower South Africans through learning.

“We also believe that learning is not limited to just the classroom and have provided additional inspiring content that will highlight leaders from different industries that students could possibly venture into as a career path."

The Spongein app can be downloaded on Google Play and on the Apple Store.

Parents Concerned After Four School Fires

Wednesday, October 21, 2020 - 15:59Author: Simbongile Makanda

After the torching of four schools in the North West province, parents have come forward asking the provincial education department to protect learners. North West Education MEC Mmaphefo Matsemela described the fires as a setback for the schools.

Article Category: News

Parents are concerned about the safety of learners after the Police spokesperson Brig Sabata Mokgwabone said no arrests have been made in connection to the attacks against the schools.

“We are worried about schools being burnt and we would really like to see improved security at schools. We must also stand up against this as parents."

The education department says it has hired 24-hour security in some schools, but there is not enough money in the provincial budget to cover the expenses for all schools.

Despite the department's lack of funds, parents have called for security to be tightened at all schools

"For our children to be safe, security at schools must be tightened. They must monitor people going in and out of schools and government must do something urgently because this will mean that children will now be overcrowded in classrooms and there is still coronavirus.”

Back in April, the North West had recorded 55 cases of vandalism at schools. 

Departmental Spokesperson, Elias Malindi, said:

“We also have to observe these areas and see what is that we can do, and also to talk to Treasury to at least increase our budgets so that we can be able to provide security in all our schools.” 

Education MEC Mmaphefo Matsemela said the fires were a setback for the schools, as learners are so close to writing their exams which start on 5 November. 

She asked for community members to come forward with information that might help them catch those responsible and close the case.

Those with any information about the attacks against the schools can contact Captain Lefty Motswadi on 082 416 1223.

Minister Angie Motshekga has urged communities to act as caretakers of schools by protecting the infrastructure and reporting any acts of vandalism.

Jumpstart Your Career In Software development With WeThinkCode_

Wednesday, October 21, 2020 - 13:43Author: WeThinkCode_

 Think you have what it takes to be a software developer or programmer? Applications are now open for the 2021 WeThinkCode_ full-time, fully-sponsored two-year programming course.  

Advertisement

Article Category: Learnerships 2020

 Three hundred places are available for the hotly demanded NQF-5 course, to be held at WeThinkCode_ campuses in Johannesburg and Cape Town.

Each year WeThinkCode_ receives over 50 000 applications from young South Africans looking for a start in the growing technology sector, which is crying out for digital skills, particularly in the area of programming and software development.

“We’re looking for students with both talent potential and drive to succeed,” says WeThinkCode_’s CEO Nyari Samushonga.  “Our course has been structured to meet the needs of South Africa’s corporate environment while bringing the best out of our selected candidates,” she adds.

WeThinkCode_ has a 98% rate of employment among its programming graduates, at average starting salaries of R240 000.  Many of its graduates have subsequently been promoted to positions of seniority in their organisations.

“We draw on the expertise of some of the world’s leading technologists in the design of our courses. Mentoring and individual tuition are built into the course as well, to ensure that we bring out the best in each one of our students,” Samushonga says.

South Africa has a vast pool of untapped talent with the aptitude to be trained in technology, which given the right training and input, have proven to become excellent coders and programmers.  Some of these have come from the most surprising quarters. 

“Applicants need not be hesitant about applying as there is no need for a specific background in technology.  We have former chefs and musicians, for example, on the course,” Samushonga adds.

The course is open to anyone between the ages of 17 and 35.  Interested applicants apply online, where their logic and problem solving abilities are tested, attend an open day to learn more about the programme and complete a critical thinking test.  They are then required to attend a rigorous bootcamp before being selected and enrolled into the two-year programme. 

There are other economic and social drivers that make this course so important.  The shortage of tech skills has been aggravated by the accelerated demand across the spectrum for digital transformation and accompanying skills as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“This is a perfect opportunity for smart, ambitious young people to rethink their careers in terms of technology,” Samushonga says.

WeThinkCode_’s two-year programming course is certified by the ICT Seta and earns its graduates a NQF5 qualification.   The course trains its graduates to be full stack developers equipped with the ability to build software solutions within any enterprise.

“WeThinkCode_ has successfully placed over 300 graduates in high-paying jobs since we started four years ago.  Each year our Academy is improving its selection processes and teaching methods to ensure that everyone entering the course has an excellent chance of completing it,” Samushonga says.
