18% Of Learners Have Not Been Placed In Schools

Careers Portal Latest -

Tuesday, December 1, 2020 - 12:17Author: Sakinah Samuels

Gauteng went online with it's school applications for 2021. The MEC has now said that 18% of learners remain unplaced and this is now causing anxiety amongst parents. The Department has also set up ways to assist parents who have trouble applying for school placements.

In Gauteng, 82% of Grade 1 and 8 registered online for the 2021 school year. Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi said that unlike the previous years, the process ran smoothly with no major hiccups, however, they have to now focus on placing the remaining 18% of learners who remain unplaced.

With more applications and the number of classrooms that we had, this has created a huge headache to the department, to the officials and also to the parents.

Parents of children who remain unplaced are now in a panic mode and angry and their anxiety has reached unacceptable levels, said Lesufi.

Offers of placements were handed to parents from 1 October 2020 and they are urged to accept these offers or they will be forfeited. 

181 119 applications were properly placed and around 41 000 parents did not receive a place for their children. A total of over 222 000 applications were received and 81% of these have seen placements happen.

18% of parents did not receive placements for their children.

"What we need to do is provide answers to the 18% of parents who were not successful," said the MEC.

The reasons behind the unsuccessful applications are as follows:

  • Schools which were chosen were high demand schools
  • The capacity in terms of regulations meant that the department had to prioritise parents who used their home address 
  • The Department needed to prioritise siblings

Lesufi clarified that the majority of those who were unplaced fall in the last two categories. Learners who live in a radius of 30km or less from schools are more likely to be placed as well. 

The 2021 Gauteng admission placements for Grades 1 and 8 ended on 30 November.

The names of schools who have space left for learners is said to be released on 7 December. 

Late applications for schools will commence on 22 December until 22 January. 

The Gauteng Department of Education acknowledged that parents are under pressure when it comes to planning for their children's next year of schooling. To assist, they will be opening their centres from 18 until 29 January so that parents can be assisted should they not have access to online applications.

2020 proved really tough for all South African’s. You know that parent that says, “if you don’t stop complaining I’ll give you something to complain about?” Well that’s what 2020 felt like! So, we need to adapt and change our mindset for 2021 – let’s make it great! We need to remain positive and upbeat –and we have some practical ways for you.

What are the downsides of what we are experiencing? Chaos, panic and stockpiling, loss of work and maybe of studies. So how do we turn this around? Consider what will be in use 24 hours a day? The internet! Tech! This is where we will not only spend our time, but we can create our futures.

The temptation will be to spend all the time on Netflix, but imagine if you set some aside to gain new skills? Our present and our future is all about what happens on our laptops – so make yourself valuable and learn or upgrade your career.

Due to the nature of online learning, Boston has always used it in order to pass on the benefits which include greater knowledge retention as well as learning in your own time and your own space, and lastly of course, at your own pace. Now is the best time to take advantage of this with new careers such as cybersecurity, data science and project management. 

Computer and mathematical occupations are growing at a rate of 22% and they have one of the highest average salaries.  

Thanks to expanding mobile networks, and a growing energy sector, IT professionals have an extremely favorable outlook. As big data increasingly drives commerce, the skills needed to control our vast networks of information are more valuable than ever. The demand for data scientists continues to grow. 

Data Science has emerged as one of the most popular fields of the 21st Century. Companies employ Data Scientists to help them gain insights about the market and to better their products. Data Scientists work as decision makers and are largely responsible for analysing and handling a large amount of unstructured and structured data. In order to do so, he requires various tools and programming languages for Data Science to mend the day in the way he wants.

Cyber security secures your future as you need to always be one step ahead of where the next breach will be. Cybersecurity is the practice of protecting systems, networks, and programs from digital attacks. These cyberattacks are usually aimed at accessing, changing, or destroying sensitive information; extorting money from users; or interrupting normal business processes.

Graphic designers’ and web developers job functions are so important now as retail, shopping and education move online. People are starting new businesses and need websites with customer relationship and management functions. We are unlikely to go back to ‘what was’. Online is now our reality.

Wikipedia describes Project Management as “the practice of initiating, planning, executing, controlling, and closing the work of a team to achieve specific goals and meet specific success criteria at the specified time. The primary challenge of project management is to achieve all of the project goals within the given constraints”.  

Both Project and product managers work across disciplines, taking the output of team members and integrating it into the bigger picture. One of the most notable characteristics of opportunities for project managers is their truly global nature. 

If one of these fields speaks to you, there’s plenty of time to get prepped and make the switch, and use the time you have now to develop so that when we can plan to emerge from this recession, with the flexibility and knowledge needed to be able to offer employers up to date skills, or to open your own consultancy because you will be in such high demand! 

It’s never too early to get started enjoying the sense of well-being derived from promising and fulfilling work. Prepare to thrive!

95% Of SASSA Applications Are Processed In Ten Days

Careers Portal Latest -

The very popular R350 grant launched by SASSA during the pandemic has SASSA being overwhelmed with millions of applications since it's launch. Now, it is said that in ten days or less, more than 95% of applications received are processed.

The very popular R350 grant launched by SASSA during the pandemic has SASSA being overwhelmed with millions of applications since it's launch. Now, it is said that in ten days or less, more than 95% of applications received are processed.

On the R350 grant, the spokesperson said that there are more than six million people benefitting from this grant. 

As far as administrative processes go for these grants, the agency is said to process more than 95% of all applications in a time frame of 10 days or less, "with the vast majority being processed and finalised within a single day". 

Four million applicants receive their R350 grants through the Post Office which Letsatsi said, "does not have the infrastructure to cope with these numbers on a daily basis".

She continued to explain that, "The reality of the situation, where each of these approved applicants has to go physically to the post office each month to collect the grant, has certainly put a strain on the Post Office, which also still continues to serve its other customers".

SASSA has cancelled the tender for the process to identify and appoint service providers for the provision of food parcels, said the Spokesperson for the agency, Paseka Letsatsi, when talking to IOL

This cancellation was done as SASSA realised that the provision of food parcels brought them many challenges along with looking at the administrative costs which lead them to realise that they needed to take a different approach when it comes to providing support to vulnerable South Africans. 

The cancellation was done before any supplier submitted any proposal, said Letsatsi. However, this doesn't mean that the special relief of distress programme as a whole is being cancelled. 

There was no corruption or fraud involved which prompted this decision.

Letsatsi seems to want to make it clear that food parcels are not the only way in which deserving citizens are assisted.

Another form of support provided by SASSA is the temporary disability grant which saw over 200 000 beneficiaries benefit from the grant between February and December.

"The Minister of Social Development thus made sure that any hardship which would have been faced by these clients as a result of the lockdown was mitigated, and they have continued to receive their grants throughout the disaster."

After an urgent meeting with Education MECs, concerning the leaking of the Grade 12 Maths exam paper, Minister Angie Motshekga announced the date when the matric results will be released.

Motshekga announced that the Matric Class of 2020 will receive their results on the 22nd of February 2021.

As far as who leaked the Maths exam paper, the Department is still unsure about who exactly leaked the paper, however they have gathered that the paper was sent to Elijah Mahlangu via email.

The email was sent by a university student, who received it from a group of four learners who needed help with the exam, as they were due to write it the next day.

Even though the department has an idea of how the paper landed up with Mahlangu, they are still unsure who exactly leaked the paper.

According to the department, the paper was first leaked in the Limpopo and Gauteng area.

Motshekga is yet to decide whether the matriculants would rewrite the matric paper, however rewriting would be the last resort.

Get Your Driver's License Today!

Careers Portal Latest -

Tuesday, December 1, 2020 - 10:24Author: Terrique Alie

In the current tough job market a driver’s licence could set you apart from the competition. Alternately the lack of a licence could immediately disqualify you for a certain job or position. If you're looking for ways to improve your CV including a driver's licence may be one option. 

Article Category: General

What you need to know in order to get your South African K53 driver's license:

There are two parts to getting your drivers license. You will need to complete a yard test and then a road test however before you do this, take note of these things:

  • Get to know your vehicle
  • Go for more than enough driving lessons with a qualified and professional driving instructor
  • Learn the rules of the road, traffic signs and road markings
  • Practice, practice and practice
  • Arrive early on the day of your driving test

Pitfalls and Pointers:

Pitfall:People often put off obtaining their driver’s license out of fear. With the high death toll on South African roads these days, this is understandable.

Pointer: “ The start of competent driving begins at home,” says Gary Ronald, Head of Public Affairs at the Automobile Association. “It’s the old adage of practising what you preach and setting a good example to your children. A novice driver who has seen his parents, family members and friends driving badly is likely to pick up their bad habits, so be sure to set a good example to your children from the onset, reminding them how important the rules of the road are to all of us.”

Pitfall: Driving schools and private instructors are often overpriced, charging exorbitant prices for a series of lessons. The majority of people lack the funds for private lessons resulting in inexperienced or bad drivers on our roads. Keep looking, and make sure you find a driving school that is reasonable and reputable, they do exist!

Pointer: Do your homework. Find the best diving school, or an instructor that is reputable and does not overcharge. Rather take the lessons and pass first time round, than risk failing and paying the cost of trying again.

Pitfall: Booking a test has become more difficult in Gauteng, especially since the demise of the Shared Services Call Centre, since different testing stations have different requirements.

Pointer: Plan in advance. Make sure you know the exact requirements for the testing station you choose. Some accept bookings for all Gauteng residents, and others only for residents of that particular municipality.

Pitfall: Don’t fall for corruption. “The AA’s biggest concern is that delays in getting tests scheduled will lead to learner drivers considering the illegal option, which of course results in more incompetent drivers on our roads,” says Ronald, “it puts people’s lives in danger.”

Pointer: Bribery and corruption destroys our country and increases road-related accidents. Don’t risk your life, or the lives of others. Be accountable and go the right route.

Why Studying Abroad Is Important Now More Than Ever

Careers Portal Latest -

Tuesday, December 1, 2020 - 09:33Author: Terrique Alie

Studying abroad provides students with the opportunity to learn about cultural diversity, meeting new people all whilst furthering your education or career. The journey to an international degree can be quite complex for many South Africans, however it is still possible. Studying abroad allows you to explore new places and gain a better understanding of how the world actually works.

Article Category: Studying Further

With the world’s industries slowly recovering and growing again, people are getting more and more competitive. As the entire world moves forward again after Covid-19, people are trying to match its pace as well. One way of doing so is through studying abroad.

While not all high schools offer international programs, if you happen to go to one that does, it’s certainly worth considering. Studying abroad after high school offers many advantages.

Studying abroad gives you the competitive edge and opens an array of opportunities you never would've known was out there.

What South Africans need to consider when studying abroad:

Furthering your education abroad adds a considerable amount of value to your personal and professional development. It broadens your horizons and exposes you to diverse perspectives.
When choosing where to study abroad, you have to consider various factors such as; cost of living, climate conditions, culture and language barriers. Language is one of the most important factors to consider because it's the bridge between connecting and communicating with others which may have an effect on your academic performance. As for South Africans, there is no language barrier which makes it much easier to communicate with others. 

What are the benefits of studying abroad?

  • Students become independent and mature
  • Learning about various cultures
  • Encourages personal growth
  • Improves your language skills
  • Teaches you how to connect with people from different cultures
  • Discovering new interests and undiscovered talents
  • Allows you to travel the world and offers a lifetime experience

Can students work whilst studying abroad?

This is dependent on the limitations of your student visa and any other restrictions made by your  chosen university. Some students are allowed to work for a certain number of hours per week, but some academic institutions restrict students from working whilst studying. 

What is the process for applying abroad?

The application process to study abroad can be time consuming and applicants need to plan ahead of their anticipated date. Selecting universities can also be a lengthy process not only from an admissions point of view but applying to universities can be very costly. Students need to choose between 6 or 8 universities which best match their requirements.

It is important to begin the admission process as early as possible to avoid any admission deadlines clashing with the start of the semester, as the admission process may take up to months.
Each college has their own policies and procedures which they need to abide by. Students need to allocate enough time for any standardised testing and sending their results off to their institution that they have applied to as part of the application process. 

A student visa is required for most countries but in most cases, you cannot apply for a student visa until you have received an acceptance letter from your chosen institution.

The basic requirements includes:

  • Identify the country, institution and the course that interests you
  • Request application forms from your desired institutions 
  • Do all the required standarised testings
  • Preparing essays and recommendation letters 
  • Complete and send off your application forms with all your required documentation
  • Await feedback on your application 

Studying abroad comes with many benefits which allows you to broaden your perspective of life and the world around you. It is so easy to accept your own culture, but living in another country can help shape and expand your own cultural views rather than just simply accepting the norm.

Good news, NSFAS has extended their applications closing date for those wanting funding for their 2021 studies. This is great for those who need to finalise a few things with their applications and those who didn't get a chance to apply yet.

NSFAS applications for 2021 funding are not set to close on 1 December 2020 at 23:59.

This announcement came because NSFAS is seeing high traffic when it comes to the myNSFAS portal because everyone wants to meet the application deadline and this leads to the system becoming slow. There has also been an increase of traffic to the website due to fake news which was spread to existing beneficiaries.

NSFAS said on their social media page:

As expected, we are experiencing high traffic volumes to the myNSFAS portal as everyone rushes to meet the application deadline which results in the system becoming slow. This traffic is also impacted by the Fake News shared over the weekend, causing unnecessary panic to all applicants who have already applied for 2021.

The system is still open for those who want to apply for 2021 funding and all applications which were already submitted will be processed. If you have not applied yet, you should then go to http://nsfas.org.za, click myNSFAS and apply. Further updates will be communicated if necessary, said NSFAS.

NSFAS has emphasised that no further extension will be offered after this.

#NSFAS2021 Applications Update!! As expected, we are experiencing high traffic volumes to the myNSFAS portal as everyone rushes to meet the application deadline which results in the system becoming slow.

Article Category: News

The recent COVID-19 pandemic had a big impact on the economy and labour sectors. And when lockdown kicked in, the education system suffered setbacks and delays.

On a more positive note, the pandemic has allowed the education sector to think out of the box and find new ways to provide learners with good quality education.

A group of Johannesburg-based software developers, iKholo, have come up with an innovative way to bridge the quality education-divide. Recently they launched an educational app that connects learners, educators, and parents.

They decided to develop this app to provide learners with the opportunity to go home and revise what they were learning at school.

Their main aim with developing iKholo was to provide all children with the same equal opportunity to quality education.

iKholo was designed for children to be able to operate it without any difficulty. 

Before COVID-19 impacted South Africa, the iKholo team, did some research and found that not all children were receiving the same quality of education.

The app can be downloaded from the Google Play Store. Once it is downloaded, an account can be created for the learner or teacher.

Since the app was launched, it received a number of registrations.

Hopefully as the year goes on, more and more parents and teachers will get their children to improve their skills by using this app.

We're coming to the end of the 2020 academic year and as we look back, just how much did the pandemic change things, especially with higher education. The Minister recently discussed updates within the secto and even spoke on the effects of the pandemic on the year.

Minister of Higher Education, Blade Nzimande, gave the public an update when it comes to how the higher education sector is handling Covid-19. During this briefing, he said there is concern about cluster outbreaks in the Eastern Cape and Kwazulu-Natal recently.

A team has been set up to help manage these outbreaks and the feared second wave.

Senior Research Associate at UJ, Professor Mary Metcalfe, said:

It's possible to still be socially connected but still maintaining the physical distancing between yourself and others. This question of higher education institutions across the world, we are seeing them as sites of outbreak and it requires a particular discipline.

Young people of South Africa have been seen disobeying the lockdown regulations as having a social life and being active on campus often involves coming into contact with many on a regular basis and of course, measures such as social distancing and wearing a mask will most likely be abandoned. 

Behaviours like these are how cluster outbreaks are becoming common at higher education institutions as students are seen gathering at taverns, which was advised against by Government due to being where super spreader events occur.

"We don't want to see young people being isolated, we want to see them behaving responsibly," said Metcalfe.

Another update the Minister gave those listening was that during the pandemic, better student performance was seen. 

Speaking on this, Metcalfe said it could be attributed to the approach of blended learning which was taken or because students were able to spend more time with material that was being made available to them online which they can store offline.

Also, with having been forced into isolation and having less distractions and temptations to be social, students were provided with more time to study and focus on their work.

What the country needs to understand is that this is not going to be quickly fixed. The challenges of 2020 are still going to be picked up in 2021 and 2022 because learners have lost a lot of time.

The Minister was confident saying that most Universities will finish the academic year by March 2021 and Matriculants will have a late start to their first campus year as their results are only released in February. The Department of Higher Education has been working with the Department of Basic Education to ensure that the Matric timeline and Higher Education timeline works well together.

"We need to preserve out social institutions of schools and of Universities. Those of us who can contribute to their ongoing sustainability need to do so because we can't have such valuable social institutions collapsing because resources have been withdrawn because of Covid," said Metcalfe.

Metcalfe encourages everyone to support the class of 2020 as they exit schools.

2020 has been a tough year for matrics however there is no reason for exam papers to be leaked. The Department of Education believes that the matrics would be able to pass the National Senior Certificate (NSC) exams all on their own.

Recently Gauteng embarked on the process of verifying all invigilators, distributors, and markers to ensure that the integrity of the 2020 matric examinations are not compromised.

According to Panyaza Lesufi, the Basic Education Department and the Hawks are currently investigating the leaking of a total of three NSC examination papers.

Their aim is to determine the source of the incidents and they intend on holding those responsible accountable for their actions.

Lesufi, the Gauteng Education MEC, believes that as investigations continue they are confident that the credibility of the exams remains intact.

The Hawks team has installed an alternative mechanism to identify who has been behind the Grade 12 exam paper leaks.

The minister will decide whether those exam papers will be rewritten or if they will allow the system to identify the culprits who may have used the leaked exam papers to achieve higher results.
