Schools Are Not Ready To Open, says Union

Wednesday, January 13, 2021 - 14:23 Author Sakinah Samuels

With schools reopening soon and no word from the Department on it being pushed back yet, National Teachers' Union believes that schools are not ready to open yet with concerns about teachers being raised as well.

With schools set to open in less than a month and South Africa being in a dreadful state with the second Covid wave, National Teachers' Union believes that schools are not ready to open yet with concerns about teachers being raised as well.

Over 1600 teachers have died as a result of Covid-19. 

There has been no changes announced when it comes to the date for schools to reopen as the current school calendar shows it to be 27 January. 

National Teachers' Union (Natu) secretary, Cynthia Barnes, said:

The National Teachers Union is not really happy that the schools are opening soon because if you look back, in 2020 there were some negotiables that were put forward that should be followed but only to find that some of them were not followed.

Schools were supposed to have PPEs ready but the quantity and quality was said to not be up to standard. Sanitation and water supplies to schools were also not delivered.

Barnes says that social distancing will never be adhered to because schools are clustered and the Department of Basic Education (DBE) were supposed to provide mobile classrooms but didn't for all schools. 

In addition to this, schools faced overcrowding and frequent cases of Covid-19 infections. 

"We understand the department doesn't have money so are they going to have money now? They need to go back and look at the hiccups they had in 2020," said Barnes. 

Unions have also not been given plans for the 2021 school year or when it comes to teachers with comorbidities.

The curriculum needs to be implemented due to cuts made to it but teachers have not been orientated with no word on when it will happen. The department trimmed the 2020 curriculum after losing 5 teaching weeks during the lockdown. 

The Department is not yet ready. Schools are not yet ready to be open ... We need something written in black and white to say this is the plan we have made and this how we are going to have everything.

DBE Minister Angie Motshekga said public schools will spend the next 3 years catching up with the content trimmed from the curriculum. 

Natu hopes to negotiate with the department in order to come to an agreement that will keep both learners and teachers safe.

Possible Delay In Reopening Of Schools

Wednesday, January 13, 2021 - 12:26 Author Raigan Cloete

Reports have been circulating about the government considering to delay the reopening of schools, however, the DA wishes to find some clarity from the DBE.

 

The Democratic Alliance (DA) asks that Angie Motshekga clarify whether the government is considering reopening schools in February rather than 27 January 2021.

The DA opposes this decision as they believe that such a delay will negatively affect the 2021 academic year. The delay will put a lot more pressure on the teachers to teach their syllabus at a faster pace, which will not be beneficial to the learners.

Currently, the country is experiencing the second wave of COVID-19 and opening schools might compromise the health of teachers and learners, which is why the DA requests that teachers be added to the essential frontline workers category.

By adding them to the frontline workers, they will be considered after the healthcare workers and at-risk people of South Africa for the COVID-19 vaccine.

Teachers spend Monday to Friday with millions of children which is why they too should be prioritised for the vaccination.

According to the DA, vaccination of teachers is the only way to protect schools in the country.

The DA requests that the Department of Basic Education prioritise a clear plan for the distribution of vaccines not only for teachers but learners too.

Clear communication of regulations is also requested from the DBE, which need to specify the conditions under which schools will open. These regulations need to be included:

  1. The proper implementation of social distancing protocols at schools.
  2. Access to safe PPE, clean water, and proper sanitation.
  3. An emergency health plan at all schools in response to positive cases.
  4. Clear plans for those teachers or learners who suffer from comorbidities.

If any school is unable to adhere to these regulations, they should contact the DBE for assistance in accessing the necessary equipment needed to ensure a safe reopening.

By delaying the reopening of schools, learners from poorer communities could be negatively impacted since they may not have access to online learning resources.

Many parents and guardians have started returning to work after the December break, which is why they need the assurance that schools will reopen on the scheduled date. 

For many children, school is the place that provides them with safety and security while their parents or guardians are at work. Some often rely on schools to provide them with daily meals through the school nutrition programme.

"Schools simply must open as planned as further delays could be catastrophic to vulnerable children and disruptions to the 2021 academic year can have serious effects on learners’ development and ability to later access economic and employment opportunities," says the DA.

The DA believes that vaccination is the only way to assure the country returns to normality, which is why they intend on fighting for the vaccination of South Africans.

Boston Joins the war on Covid by resisting fee increase

Wednesday, January 13, 2021 - 10:39 Author Boston City Campus

As part of their commitment to getting students through the pandemic in an academically successful way, Boston City Campus' board has committed to NO FEE INCREASE for the 2021 Semester A. Application and registration happens online, keeping you safe while readying yourself to achieve your goals.

While we recognise that people talk of ‘the new normal’ Boston does not believe that this life we are now living is normal in any way. Having to avoid physical contact with the ones you love, staying distant from friends family and colleagues, finding new ways to travel, to work and to study, as well as to earn a living – this is new, but it is far from normal.  

So what can we as educators do to help our students? Our move in 2019, from attending campus to online learning, application and registration happened seamlessly. We created new ways to maintain contact with students and lecturers, and to create the feeling that we area team, we all belong, and we are here for you, our students. As part of our commitment to getting students through the pandemic in an academically successful way, our board has committed to NO FEE INCREASE for the 2021 Semester A. Application and registration happens online, keeping you safe while readying yourself to achieve your goals. The pandemic will create a new world of work, remote shopping, remote learning and remote working, that may extend beyond the life of the virus. For this we must be prepared so that we can take advantage of opportunities to grow in our careers and our earning potential.

We have learned that perhaps we are not as secure as we felt, we may need to put in more effort, become more creative, and notice everyone around us with kindness. In order to overcome the chaos, we need to put plans in place that will give us security of some sorts, an edge over other job seekers, a flair for entrepreneurial activities.

One Boston graduate of the travel diploma, Ncumisa Mkabile is now growing spinach and supplying large chain stores! Ronica Maluleke Ngasama, brand ambassador graduate, recognised the need for deliveries of farm fresh goods, and established a successful business. So now is the time to apply and register for a qualification that will give you business understanding, financial savvy and a solid basis for running your own business in any industry.

Says Dr Hendrik Botha, Head of Institution, “Due to the Covid-19 socioeconomic impact, Boston will not be increasing tuition fees for Semester A 2021 registrations. Our commitment to continuously expand access to quality higher education is also evident in our “Invest in SA” campaign wherein up to a 33% subsidy is provided for all our
Higher Certificate programmes.

At Boston, our core benefits remain unchanged:

  • Textbooks and online learning experiences included.      
  • Student Advisors to help keep you motivated and on-track.           
  • Full-Time Educators to assist with academic support, tuition planning, student wellness, etc.       
  • Online LMS for access to video lectures, teaching & learning, assessments, feedback, etc. available 24/7.
  • Forty-five nationwide Support Centres for access to ICT, study & exam venues, if required.”

While we usually make new year’s resolutions, high and lofty, that fall flat by February, this year we advise our students to live a life of purpose. Instead of resolutions, create intentions. Don’t hold yourself to impossible dreams, but live with the intention of achieving your dreams step by step. In that way they are more attainable. And Boston will be with you to hep you achieve your academic goals, step by step and module by module, our aim is to see you graduate, whether on screen or on a stage. Either way get ready to put your name in lights!

Will NSFAS Fund My Online Studies?

Tuesday, January 12, 2021 - 15:15 Author Lauren Chawula

The National Student Financial Aid Scheme, better known as NSFAS, offers bursaries to South African students who plan to study at public universities and TVET colleges. Continue reading to find out if they fund online studies. 

The National Student Financial Aid Scheme, better known as NSFAS, offers bursaries to South African students who plan to study at public universities and TVET colleges. They cover funding for registration, tuition and allowances.  

You may be wondering if they fund students who pursue online studies.

The answer is yes they do but only if you're doing a full-time programme or university degree at a public university or TVET College. 

They fund students who are enrolled at the University of South Africa (Unisa) which is a distance e-learning university. Unisa offers many courses online which can be funded by NSFAS. 

However, NSFAS does not fund any short courses or short-term degrees administered online and they also don't fund any online degrees offered at private colleges. 

The requirements for NSFAS are as follows:

  • You're a South African citizen
  • If you're a SASSA grant recipient, you qualify for funding
  • Person with disability: Combined household income must not be more than R600 000 per year

Application results will be communicated to all applicants once NSFAS received confirmation from the Institution that an academic offer has been made to you.

Once approved for the bursary, the only requirement to stay funded is that students need to pass their modules. However, NSFAS does give grace in case something happens and allows students to fail one year and still be funded. 

For more information on NSFAS visit there site, www.nsfas.org.za
