Health Minister is Latest To Test Postiive

Sunday, October 18, 2020 - 22:23Author: Alan Hammond

National Health Minister has announced that he has tested positive for Covid-19 - as has his wife.  Dr Zweli Mkhize will be somewhere around the '702 000-th' South African to test positive for this particular coronavirus since the outbreak started in March this year. The normal, standard Sunday evening update on the local Covid-19 figures was different tonight with a very personal message from Minister Mkhize.

Article Category: News

The country has become used to daily updates from the national Minister of Health Dr Zweli Mkhize on the status of the Covid-19 outbreak in South Africa. Things took a twist on Sunday night when Dr Mkhize had to release a statement confirming that both he, and his wife Dr May Mkhize have now tested positive.

"We decided to go test yesterday when I started showing mild symptoms. I was feeling abnormally exhausted and as the day progressed, I started loosing appetite. My wife had a cough, was dizzy and extremely exhausted. Given her symptoms, the doctors advised that she must be admitted for observation and rehydration".

"Our close contacts in the past week have been a few of our family members and some of my Health Ministry team. We have informed them and advised them to immediately isolate in their homes and be tested".

The Minister and his wife are noe in quarantine at home and he says he is optimistic that he and his wife will make a full recovery.

Dr Mkhize has been at the forefront of the battle against Covid-19 in the country since the first case in March this year, and has steered the country into lockdown.  This was first the 'hard' lockdown of level 5 but has gradually been eased to the level 1 and relative freedom that exists today.

On the previous day the number of confirmed cases on the country, those who have been tested, rose to more than 702 000 and the death toll now stands at 18 404.  However South Africa has so far avoided the '2nd wave' which is plaguing many countries in Europe and North America. 

DR ZWELI MKHIZE TESTS POSITIVE FOR COVID-19

Uncertainty about 2020 tertiary academic year

Sunday, October 18, 2020 - 14:02Author: Lauren Chawula

Minister of Higher education Blade Nzimande fails to attend portfolio committee to discuss saving the 2020 academic year at tertiary institutions, leaving MPs angry and students uncertain.

Article Category: News

Minister of Higher Education Blade Nzimande landed himself in trouble on Friday, October 16, 2020 for failing to attend a portfolio committee to discuss the saving of the 2020 academic year at tertiary institutions. 

Nzimande had asked for postponement of the meeting to this week because he attended a Cabinet lekgotla, but still didn't show up leaving MPs across political parties to feel undermined in performing their duty of playing oversight over the department. 

They were so angry that some called that he be subpoenaed to come to the next meeting within seven days because they say they had important matters to discuss. 

Some of the questions, which includes the failure to provide some students with laptops while they study remotely due to Covid-19, require Nzimande's answer. 

We postponed last week on Wednesday because we received his request that we should move the meeting to this week,

- Higher education portfolio committee chairperson Philly Mapulane said.

Mapulane also said the MPs were correct that there were matters that require political leadership of the department in the form of the minister to take them on board and into his confidence on how the 2020 academic year would be saved.

We are in October. The academic year normally comes to an end in November. In some institutions there is a suggestion that they may finish in February, March and others in April next year. We don't know, 

-Higher education portfolio committee chairperson Philly Mapulane

ANC MP Nompendulo Mkhatshwa said the students were being disadvantaged in the delays that hindered progress. 

We must express our apologies to the students. It is really disappointing that we find ourselves in this particular circumstance, 

-ANC MP Nompendulo Mkhatshwa

It was noted by Mapulane that there was an uncertainty amongst tertiary students as to what would happen to them in this academic year and what the future holds for their studies. 

It is important we have that session so that the minister can come and attend to the concerns that are there and it is the minister who can allay the uncertainties,

-Higher education portfolio committee chairperson Philly Mapulane

 Mapulane said that the committee would write to Nzimande to express the concerns raised by MPs about his unavailability. 

The proposal of summoning the minister will be entertained as the last resort. If there is no compliance with that request Parliament has an instrument to ensure there is accountability, that instrument is a subpoena.

COVID-19 Outbreak: 38 Test Positive at 2 Northern Cape Schools

Sunday, October 18, 2020 - 13:00Author: Lauren Chawula

38 teachers and learners at the Van Rensburg Primary School and Theron High School tested positive for the virus, while others await the results of their COVID-19 tests.

Article Category: News

Two schools in Britstown in the Northern Cape have been closed following an outbreak of the Coronavirus at both schools, where 38 teachers and learners tested positive for the virus. 

These positive test results comes after they allegedly attended a farewell function with a teacher who had contracted the virus. 

The provincial education department said in a statement, that it had instructed both schools to close for deep cleaning and called the outbreak of the virus unfortunate.

The responsibility now rests with the school to disinfect the premises. In the case of the Britstown schools, the district office informed the schools to close and deep-clean the premises to curb the further spread of the Covid-19 pandemic.The responsibility now rests with the school to disinfect the premises.

- Spokesperson for the Northern Cape Department of Education, Geoffrey van der Merwe

The Northern Cape Province had not yet experienced its peak in Covid-19 infections and so Van der Merwe says that the increased number of infections was expected. He claims that the mechanisms and precautionary measures the department introduced, has limited the spread of the coronavirus very well. He stated that the department would continue to support and guide all the schools during these “very difficult and uncertain times”.

It is unfortunate what transpired in Britstown and we encourage the school community to remain vigilant, continue to wear your masks and sanitise your hands with soap or an alcohol-based sanitiser.

The two schools are to reopen for teaching and learning on October 19, 2020.

In-demand Job Skills in South Africa right now

Sunday, October 18, 2020 - 12:00Author: Lauren Chawula

CareerJunction published its latest monthly jobs index for September 2020, it showed which job skills are the most sought-after in South Africa right now. 

Advertisement

Article Category: News

The Career Junction Index (CJI) represents the online labour dynamics in South Africa by providing detailed research of the relative ratio of demand and supply in the online job market. It is based on the comprehensive data gathered from the CareerJunction Website. 

CareerJunction found that hiring activity increased by 4% during September, while job search activity increased by 12%.

These are both positive signs after the high unemployment rate of 30,1% reported in the first quarter of 2020, as a result of the closing and scaling down of businesses due to the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Demand has increased for professionals in the business & management, sales, warehousing & logistics, manufacturing & assembly, admin, office & support and architecture & engineering. 

An index score below 100 indicates that there are fewer job opportunities for potential job seekers and more potential job seekers per job advert, this makes recruitment easier. An index score above 100 indicates the opposite - there are more job opportunities for potential job seekers, and fewer potential job seekers per job advert. This makes recruitment more difficult. 

The CJI reached 91 index points and this indicates that there is increased competition in the job search market, thus recruitment is easier. 

The index decreased greatly from a year ago and this is due to the period of declining job search activity, as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown which restricted hiring activity across all sectors for several months. 

However, as the lockdown levels have eased and the economy is opening up companies are looking for job skills which aid in recovery - though this is still in a limited capacity.

The following are job skills which are in demand:

  • Software development skills, which has remained the highest in demand and the hiring activity for these skills has increased by 10% during September 2020, according to CareerJunction. 
  • Managerial staff, which are highly demanded, with sales managers and finance managers being particularly well sought after. 
  • Sales consultants, for which the demand is slowly growing and has increased by 16% during September, CareerJunction said. 

Trending jobs include:

Admin Clerk

Average salary offerings for a skilled level position:

  • GP R12,698 to R15,985
  • WC R11,425 to R14,123
  • KZN R8,995 to R11,200

Senior Management

Average salary offerings for a managerial level position:

  • GP R64,335 to R80,931
  • WC R53,285 to R66,508
  • KZN R50,297 to R58,505

Executive Management / Director

Average salary offerings for an executive position:

  • GP R81,812 to R108,122
  • WC R55,147 to R107,467
  • KZN R63,296 to R101,786

IT, business & management and finance sectors are the most sought-after sectors in the job market, followed by the sales, admin, office & support and architecture & engineering sectors, among others listed.

When looking at active job seekers across various sectors, areas of high supply correlate closely to areas of high demand, however supply outstrips demand in some areas, leading to a competitive environment for job seekers.

During lockdown level five and four there was a decrease in recruitment activity but now hiring activity is slowly increasing for professional in the business & management, sales, warehousing & logistics, manufacturing & assembly, admin, office & support and architecture & engineering sectors.

Hiring activity remains at a reduced level for professionals in ICT, cleaning, maintenance & repair and marketing. Demand for medical & health professionals decreased during September after elevated recruitment activity from June to August 2020.

R350 SRD Grant Implementation Issues

Sunday, October 18, 2020 - 10:40Author: Lauren Chawula

On 15 October President Cyril Ramaphosa announced the extension of the R350 SRD grant for another three months and this was welcomed by many. However, the Democratic Alliance (DA) worries that its implentation will continue to be disorderly.

Article Category: News

The Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant of R350 has been of great help to the population of South Africa, who could not earn a living due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Democratic Alliance (DA) finds the intention behind the grant commendable but the party finds the lack of proper implementation chaotic and worrisome. 

These were the many issues with the organization and implementation of this grant:

  • The applications for the SRD grant took place exclusively online which excluded the very people who the grant was aimed at, as not all South Africans have access to ICT services.
  • The government promised that volunteers with special equipment would be assisting applicants but very little of this was seen happening in reality.
  • Potential beneficiaries of the grant also had to wait for months to find out if their applications had been approved, while those who were approved are still not receiving their money.
  • Beneficiaries who received their grants at the beginning of the SRD implementation have been removed from the list for arbitrary reasons.

The Department of Social Development said that rejection rates for the grant had increased and attributed this to the Auditor-General finding roughly 30 000 applicants who were already receiving other Covid-19 relief funding. 

Applications are considered on their individual merits on a month-to-month basis, which means an application can be approved for one month and rejected the following month if, for instance, the financial situation changed

-Department of Social Development

  • There is poor communication and confusion in terms of information given from Sassa. Sassa needs to come up with a communication strategy that reaches everyone.

  • A backlog of thousands of applications, emails and phone calls coupled with the partial capacitation of the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) offices meant that citizens were not receiving the assistance they needed.

The grant which was to be a safety net for those who lived in poverty and were unemployed has been beset by administrative and payment issues. Some of these issues have remained unsolved for several months.This leaves millions of South African citizens, who are impoverished, suffering and feeling hopeless.

The Democratic Alliance stresses that more needs to be done to take care of the citizens receiving this grant as it affects many vulnerable people.

2020 Matriculants Prepare For Exams

Saturday, October 17, 2020 - 12:46Author: Raigan Cloete

Before students can write their examinations, they are required to sign the examination pledge. Which states that they will adhere to all examination protocol.

Article Category: News

Angie Motshekga, Basic Education Minister, visited Midrand to address Grade 12 students during their matric examination pledge signing ceremony.

Motshekga highlighted the importance of not coping another student during the examinations as it will result in serious punishments.

Anyone caught coping another student or communicating with another student during the exam will result in them receiving zero for that particular paper and also being banned from writing the examinations for three years.

Those students will also not be allowed to receive their matric results until they rewrite after three years.

Motshekga also touched on the issue of learners contracting COVID-19 during the exam period. She mentioned that those learners who are infected with COVID-19 will have to write the supplementary exams in June 2021.

In order to qualify for the supplementary exams, they will have to present evidence of testing positive for COVID-19.

It was reported that at least 37 learners contracted the virus at a nightclub in Cape Town recently.

Hopefully these students will recover in time to write their exams by the 5th of November.

DHET Recommends Extension Of Carolissen’s Tenure

Saturday, October 17, 2020 - 11:18Author: Raigan Cloete

Dr. Randall Carolissen accused, by National Education Health and Allied Workers' Union (Nehawu), of mismanaging NSFAS funds set aside for tertiary students.

Article Category: News

The Department of Higher Education has agreed to the extension of Dr. Randall Carolissen’s tenure as administrator of the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS), even though others disagreed with them.

Dr. Randall Carolissen accused, by National Education Health and Allied Workers' Union (Nehawu), of mismanaging R35 billion set aside for NSFAS tertiary students.

It was reported that Nehawu announced that while Carolissen was in charge, many problems arose, including the provision of R3.75 billion towards a laptop tender, which was cancelled.

Last week during an address at parliament, Nehawu did not agree that Carolissen’s contract should be extended at NSFAS.

However, Buti Manamela, Deputy Higher Education Minister, disagreed with Nehawu and thought that Carolissen did a great job in his position at NSFAS.

“As far as we’re concerned, NSFAS has stabilised over the last two years.”

“The minister believed in his wisdom that we needed to extend briefly the contract of the administrator so that we finalise the appointment of the CEO. There has not been a substantiation of the allegations of corruption and maladministration,” said Manamela.

However, the ministry does not disregard Nehawu’s concerns.

A Cape Town Mom Couldn’t Find A School For Her Autistic Son. So She Started One.

Saturday, October 17, 2020 - 10:29Author: Raigan Cloete

Phumeza Booi Welisa runs the Hlumelo Educare Centre out of her home in New Crossroads to mostly assist children with autism. The centre was named after her son with autism after she struggled to find placement for him at other Early Development Centre (EDC) in the area.

Article Category: News
  • Phumeza Booi Welisa couldn’t find a school for her son with autism so she started a school.
  • Her school has children with and without autism.
  • Welisa hopes to turn her educare into a registered Early Childhood Development centre that gets state funding but getting registration-ready is expensive.

When Phumeza Booi Welisa from New Crossroads in Cape Town could not find a school suitable for her son with autism, she had no choice but to start her own.

Welisa said that when her son Hlumelo was born on 18 April 2009, everything appeared to be fine. She said it was after he turned two that she started noticing some development delays such as being unable to talk.

According to Autism South Africa, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a developmental disability involving brain development. “People with ASD may communicate, interact, behave, and learn in ways that are different from most people. The learning, thinking, and problem-solving abilities of people with ASD can range from gifted to severely impaired.”

She took Hlumelo to the Red Cross Children’s Hospital where she was informed that he has autism. Having never heard of the condition before, Welisa sought advice from her mother who had been caring for a child with similar behavioural traits as Hlumelo.

Welisa said she struggled to find placement for Hlumelo at schools. She said that they moved him to about seven creches in one year. When her mother and grandmother passed away, she had to quit her job as a supervisor at McDonalds.

She said that when Hlumelo was about seven years old, she sent him to Alpha School in Woodstock, a school specialising in children with autism. “I was so happy, hoping that my child was going to school,” she said. But that too fell through after the school told her that they only accepted children who were no longer using nappies.

Welisa then decided to potty train him herself at home. She noticed that he was scared of the flushing and would get nervous and cover his ears. Another issue was that his feet could not touch the ground so he was never relaxed. At eight, Hlumelo successfully enrolled at Alpha School.

Welisa said that because of the frustration and long journey she experienced, she wanted to help other parents and children like Hlumelo in the township. She then completed an 18-month Educare course at False Bay College and started her daycare Hlumelo Educare Centre in 2017, an NPO to prepare autistic children for school.

Without a location for the daycare, Welisa used spare rooms at her home. She started caring for two autistic children, but news of what she was doing spread quickly. “In our community there’s a lot of children whose parents are unemployed,” she said. She was approached by many parents to look after their children as well. “I noticed that the children with autism were learning from the ones without autism … They’re learning from each other,” she said.

Before lockdown 62 children, aged six months to eight years, were enrolled at the centre, including eight autistic children from the community. The educare operates in three rooms and has seven staff members which include four teachers, a cook, caretaker and Welisa. The centre is currently not funded by the Department of Social Development and relies on school fees at R230 per child per month. But often only some of the parents can pay. The staff, who are volunteers, are paid a stipend sometimes, depending on the educare’s income.

When they reopened in lockdown level 1, only 13 children returned. Only nine parents have paid so far. “Most of the parents lost their jobs,” she says.

The Hlumelo Educare Centre is part of the Afternoon Angels program. An initiative where community members in townships open their homes to give children food and a safe place to play and wait until their parents are home. Food for the program is sponsored by Ikamva Labantu.

Welisa hopes to turn her educare into a registered ECD centre. This would allow her to apply for government funding, but a lot more is required before she can do that. “There’s a lot of things they expect us to have, like fire extinguishers … There’s still a lot we can’t afford to buy for us to be registered,” she said.

COVID Grant Extension Is A Lifeline For Asylum Seekers

Saturday, October 17, 2020 - 10:14Author: Raigan Cloete

In June, GroundUp wrote an article about immigrant tradesmen who were struggling to find work during lockdown. Many asylum seekers and citizens of Lesotho, Angola and Zimbabwe with special permits have lost their income and have only been able to apply for COVID-19 relief grants since August.

Article Category: News
  • Asylum seekers and citizens from Lesotho, Angola and Zimbabwe with special permits were excluded from COVID-19 assistance until a court ordered in June that they also get the COVID-19 relief grant.
  • The system went live in August, but applicants must first go through a verification process and are only paid after it is successful.
  • Some asylum seekers and permit holders have said they wish to return to the countries they fled as they cannot survive here.

On Thursday, President Cyril Ramapohsa extended the COVID grant by another three months. This will come as a lifeline for many asylum seekers and special permit holders from Lesotho, Angola and Zimbabwe who were excluded for months from the social relief grant, and who are now waiting for their grant applications to be processed.

On 19 June in the Pretoria High Court, Judge Selby Baqwa ruled that the R350 Special COVID-19 Social Relief of Distress grant must be extended to special permit holders and asylum seekers.

Asylum seekers and permit holders had not qualified for much of the COVID aid, food parcels and support extended by government, and have been struggling.

Spokesperson for the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) Kgomoco Diseko said the department has now created a comprehensive separate web application channel for asylum seekers and permit holders, after extensive consultation with the Department of Home Affairs and the Scalabrini Centre. “Final testing was undertaken with clients from the Scalabrini Centre whereafter the application channel went live on 3 August 2020.”

But payment is only done from the month in which the person successfully applied. With grants set to have ended in October, the latest extension will now come as a relief.

So far 5,444 asylum seekers and permit holders who applied using ID numbers were paid as it was easier to process their applications according to Diseko.

“1,867 applications have been received from Asylum Seekers and Special Permit Holders: Asylum Seekers 750, Angolan special permit 76, Lesotho special permit 551 and Zimbabwean special permit 490,” said Diseko. “While no payments have yet been made, SASSA strives to pay the qualifying applicants as soon as possible after the income validations have been completed. It is critical for SASSA to be able to confirm that the right people receive the money, as all payments are audited.”

“At this stage it is unfortunately not 100% clear how long this will take as SASSA is working with other organisations on this matter. However, SASSA is working diligently to expedite this process,” said Diseko.

“Since lockdown began we have assisted about 20,000 individuals with food relief, trauma counselling and livelihood support. Many of the beneficiaries we assessed claimed they were unable to access Unemployment insurance Fund (UIF) and the R350 COVID-19 grant,” says Gahlia Brogneri, director at the Adonis Musati Project, which has given food assistance to Zimbabweans, Congolese, Burundians, Somalis, Rwandans, Malawians, Tanzanians, Cameroonians, Ugandans, Angolans, Ethiopians, Kenyans, Mozambicans, Senegalese, Nigerians, Zambians and South Africans.

“In the first few months we had up to 300 requests for help per day, but currently we are receiving about 200 per week urgently requesting assistance,” she said.

“Since March social workers have manned an emergency helpline. People send a Whatsapp or SMS with their request and an assigned social worker calls them back and does an assessment. People also reach us via email, Facebook and through our office telephone.”

Brogneri said many asylum seekers and permit holders lost their livelihoods during lockdown because of the nature of the industries they were working in. Many who lost jobs have been told not to return or that their job will be given to a South African.

“The situation has heightened already high levels of stress experienced by foreign nationals and as tensions increase due to poor service delivery and scarcity of jobs and resources many fear there will soon be further outbreaks of xenophobia,” she said.

“Due to the lack of income they are having to cut down on all non-essential items such as meat and fish, some toiletries, clothes, blankets, cleaning products, airtime and data, movement and travel. Mothers have had to cut down on nappies and clothing for children as well as items needed for school,” she said.

She said none of refugees have been able to return due to the pandemic but they have received many requests lately from refugees who want to be repatriated to their original countries. She said they are referred to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).

Ministry Responds to SASCO TVET College Demands

Friday, October 16, 2020 - 21:35Author: Sakinah Samuels

Minister in charge of Higher Education, Blade Nzimande and his Department, has released a statement in response to the memorandum of demands the South African Students Congress (SASCO) handed over to Parliament on TVET Colleges.

Article Category: News

Minister in charge of Higher Education, Blade Nzimande and his Department, has released a statement in response to the memorandum of demands the South African Students Congress (SASCO) handed over to Parliament on TVET Colleges.

The Ministry appreciates the critical importance of the issues raised in the SASCO memorandum and the correct strategic emphasis placed on building the capacity and expanding the TVET College sector. This view is consistent with my view that our country must invert the university-centric nature of the South African post-school education and training system if we are to successfully meet the needs of the National Development Plan.

- Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Innovation

SASCO embarked on nationwide protests this week to have their concerns about TVET Colleges and it's poor state heard and is now calling for a national shutdown of Higher Education institutions. 

In their efforts to make TVET Colleges the institution of choice, SASCO submitted 15 demands which they want the South African Government to urgently address. Some of their demands are for the TVET system are:

  • issue certificates immediately
  • build student accommodation
  • allocate infrastructure
  • development funding
  • equal funding model for TVET colleges and universities
  • inclusion of more disciplines
  • curriculum transformation

The Minister makes it clear that growth has been seen in the TVET sector in the past two years, "this includes a number of interventions related to the demands made in the Memorandum", said the Minister.

The Ministry didn't give much information when it came to responding to SASCO's demand to have more TVET student accommodation built and said that there is an overarching project in the Department that deals with student residences in an integrated way for both universities and TVET colleges. 

TVET College students will possibly have access to laptops from 2021 along with many Colleges starting to use e-books more. "Colleges are planning to move towards the use of e-books, which enables publishers to make electronic materials accessible to students, such as YouTube videos and web links", read the statement.

The Department has reviewed the TVET curriculum since 2018, noted the Minister. All curricula relating to ICT has alls been reviewed and will be put in place from next year January. The TVET sector will also be seeing the addition of a Robotics stream in the NC(V) programme for IT and Computer Science next year. 

"As a result of this process, thirty-eight (38) subject curricula have been reviewed and in the process of being evaluated by Umalusi and the Quality Council for Trades and Occupation (QCTO). Fourteen of these curricula will be implemented in January 2021. " said Nzimande.

Due to Covid-19 the Department has had to move some parts of the curricula reviews from 2021 to 2022 to ensure that there is sufficient time for preparations and training of the lecturers, explains the statement released.

“The early work for the establishment of a lecturer training institute in Gauteng has begun and will soon gain traction. It must also be noted that the establishment of new TVET lecturer qualifications and the development of associated programmes and their offering by universities is well underway, ” said Minister Nzimande.

Fourteen Universities are in the process of developing TVET College educational and training qualifications. As of right now, three of these programmes are already being offered, eleven programmes are accredited by the Council on Higher Education and eight more is set to be offered from next year onwards. Several Universities are also developing TVET-specific lecturer qualifications.

These lecturers will be equipped with theoretical and practical knowledge. They are also required to undergo work-based experience in order to qualify to teach. This new generation of lecturers will start filtering into the system from 2022.

- Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Innovation

SASCO also raised issues concerning what TVET College students receive for allowances. To this, Nzimande said that because all students who qualify, receive a travel or accommodation allowance along with a personal care allowance, "this constitutes free education for most students who progress in their studies".

As for the demands about infrastructure at Colleges and what they lack, the Department responded saying that Colleges which are in need of repairs are currently planning for these repairs to take place as the sector benefits from The Capital Infrastructure Efficiency Grant. 

At a SASCO protest this week, a student explained that in places like Germany, successful individuals are TVET graduates who have sufficient skill sets to carry out those functions and wants South African TVETs to have a similar model. Now, the Department is said to be agreed to work with the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany to adapt valuable and relevant insights from the Germany vocational training system with its robust links with industry.

On TVET students receiving their certificates on time, the Ministry said, "The Department is working very hard at meeting the 3-month turnaround time to issue certificates after students have met all their academic requirements. This target has been met just before the onset of COVID -19." The Department has now said that they are putting in major effort to clear the certifications backlogs from 1992. 

Nzimande also reiterated that due to finances, they can't build TVET campuses per each sub-district but that they are committed to expanding existing campuses to reach more students, as well as embarking on distance and open learning initiatives.

Nine TVET College campuses are now near completion and will be completed by the end of next year. It is however important to note that this does not mean nine TVET Colleges are being built. 

TVET College students can view online learning materials by going to http://www.tvetcolleges.co.za/

"Minister Nzimande commits to further engagements with the leadership of SASCO on issues contained in their memorandum and on other issues affecting students in general."

Unions Raise Concerns About R7bn Funding For DBE

Friday, October 16, 2020 - 15:15Author: Simbongile Makanda

 The Department of Basic Education recently secured R7 billion funding to hire more than 200,000 education assistants. Now, unions and stakeholders have shared their thoughts about the department's plans.

Article Category: News

Unions have welcomed the decision to employ teaching assistants. However, they have raised some concerns about what this short term solution will mean for South African schools in the long-run.

Minister Angie Motshekga said the department will start recruiting and training potential assistants soon.

“We are going to start them now, we are going to train them, it’s going to take a long time to train them due to the system."

"We hope to screen them now because we don’t want anybody to come into the system carefully we have to find people who are really interested in teaching we have to look at unemployed teachers and see if we re-skill them so we will take them in this year and train them in preparation  for 2021.”

President of Naptosa, Basil Manuel said this would be an opportunity to employ young people most affected by unemployment. 

“Whilst it is a short employment opportunity of four months but for a large number of people and at least it will assist our younger people in deciding, do I want to be a teacher for example.

Natu president Allan Thompson said although the assistants would help reduce the workload that teachers have to deal with, employing the assistants would not solve the bigger problems in the education system. 

“The national teachers union is however not convinced that the creation of 300 000 positions is going to solve the problems the teachers are faced with"

"Yes the creation of the positions will be able to arrest COVID-19 problems but not problems that teachers are faced with. Teachers are faced with the problem of being overworked because the schools have a shortage of teachers.”

According to a presentation the department gave to unions, a total of R4.47 billion will be used to pay the assistants. They will receive a stipend of R3 500 per month with 1% of their stipend being used to contribute to the UIF.

The assistants will have many duties such as supporting teachers, helping with the distribution of teaching materials and helping learners with after school activities such as sports and cultural activities.

Western Cape Schools Receive Donations For Learners

Friday, October 16, 2020 - 13:19Author: Simbongile Makanda

Learners at five schools in the Western Cape were left with smiles after receiving donations of food and learning materials. With more than 2 million learners reportedly not receiving meals from the National School Nutrition Programme (NSNP), these donations came at the right time for these learners.

Article Category: News

Non-profit organisation Living Through Learning (LTL) handled the handing over of 500 relief boxes to learners in schools from Parow Valley, Voorbrug and Gugulethu. The relief boxes were donated by the Lunchbox Fund.

LTL has been providing support to 26 schools in the Western Cape. The organisation has done this by promoting literacy and skills development in schools. 

A spokesperson for Sonwabo Primary School in Gugulethu said the donation would provide relief for many parents who have been disadvantaged by the Covid-19 lockdown.

“Most of them have lost their jobs, so to put food on the table at this time during the pandemic is a difficult thing,” he said.

Principal of Vergenoegd Primary School in Voorburg, Jonathan Goodall said the school has to feed more than 700 learners a day. The relief boxes helped about 90 grade R learners at the school. 

A teacher at the school, Leander Heyns said the learners would benefit from the donations.

“A lot of these children come to school each day not having food to eat, so the only time for some of them is the meal that they eat at school. This will help a lot, especially during this time. Many parents lost their jobs.”

The schools also received a donation of 500 sensory books along with the relief boxes. 

The meal donations come during a time where civil rights group, Equal Education has been concerned about learners not receiving meals. 

According to Equal Education, nearly 2 million learners are still not receiving meals on days when they are not at school.

The organisation said most provinces have failed to provide meals to learners and many of the reports about the school nutrition programme lacked consistency. 

Equal Education conducted a survey which showed a need for a reliable mode of transport for learners to collect meals. Another problem that the organisation highlighted was the fact that the Free State never submitted a progress report. 

The organisation believes that the Department of Basic Education should take responsibility to communicate with schools, learners and families about the safety measures put in place and the times to collect meals at school.

Examsta: Free Online Quizzes For Learners

Friday, October 16, 2020 - 12:07Author: Simbongile Makanda

It's that time of the year where many learners are drawing mind maps or scrambling to find extra learning resources just before exams start. Online apps have been the go-to for many learners and teachers since Covid-19 hit and Examsta is another great app to consider during this time.

Article Category: High School

Examsta is an online educational app that uses tools like quizzes to promote active learning. This method of learning has been proven to have good results for learners in the long run. 

“Widely referred to as ‘retrieval practice’, the teaching method is a well-known psychological phenomenon whereby memory recall is accelerated through regular quizzes.”

Marie de Wet, founder of Examsta and qualified teacher, said there is more to studying than just re-reading and taking notes. The way that learners will most likely benefit from studying is by taking quizzes to test themselves during the process of studying. 

She said many teachers and learners would be able to benefit from using retrieval as a learning method instead of re-teaching. 

“Examsta will give learners the edge when it comes to preparing for exams, where the act of retrieving information prompts the brain to ensure that it is more accessible in the future.”

Learners can use Examsta to access quizzes for different subjects in the South African syllabus. Each quiz consists of 10 to 15 multiple choice questions that come with explanations and diagrams.

The app is currently still in its testing phase, and the quizzes are available for learners in grade 10, 11 and 12. Learners can access Life Sciences quizzes and more subjects like History and Geography will be made available soon. 

From January 2021, learners will be able to access quizzes for all of the subjects in their grade for a fee of R100 a year.

“We provide an effective and affordable learning tool that will benefit students from all socio-economic backgrounds,”

“The website is simple, to minimise data costs for learners and, in the future, we plan to make the app zero-rated so that no data will be required to access content.” said de Wet.

Learners can visit www.examsta.co.za to access the Examsta learning material and quizzes free of charge. 

The platform has already been tested on about 500 learners in Cape Town. These learners were surveyed and 81% of them said they found Examsta to be a useful learning tool.

The University of Cape Town is currently investigating a number of compromised email accounts. Students are urged to be cautious when it comes to their email accounts and any emails they receive.

UCT has said that approximately 53 email accounts were compromised and are now being investigated. 

"Our Information and Communication Technology Services (ICTS) helpdesk is in the process of making contact with the owners of the possibly compromised email accounts," said the University.

UCT learned of the matter on 14 October when emails were sent from the Vice-Chancellor fraudulently.

The first email was titled 'Mamokgethi Phakeng shared “UCT Forthcoming Projects” with you' and readers were then asked to click on a link.

The second one is titled Projects and Agenda and asks that you open the attached PDF file.

Students are therefore urged to please not click on the email link or open the PDF file.

UCT said in a statement:

If you receive any of these emails or observe any suspicious activity on your UCT account, please inform the IT Helpdesk immediately by sending an email to [email protected].

ICTS has blocked various IP addresses that could be linked to the sources of the attempts, said the University.

We should all be more careful online and protect our online presence now that schooling and work has moved to online and many other processes that could require you to share your information.

If you have any questions about how to secure your online presence please check the ICTS and CSIRT websites for the latest alerts and further information. If you receive a suspicious email that differs to the ones identified above, please also report it to the IT Helpdesk at [email protected]. You can report any other cybersecurity issues to the Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT) at [email protected].
