Teaching is the cornerstone of development and growth within a country, it is for this reason that there remains a growing demand for qualified teachers in South Africa. This growing demand is not without problems, as the education system continues to be riddled with complexities relating to the quality and accessibilty of education.
The Department of Education has put measures in place in order to help meet the growing demand for qualified teachers, however, this demand is not met by an adequate supply of teachers.
The Hungarian Government is offering 100 scholarships to South African students to study at participating public university in Hungary. All courses available for South Africans are taught in English, however all Bachelor's and Master's students will be required to pass a course in Hungarian as a foreign language.
Stakeholders plea to have an application window period to accommodate students interested in registering to institutions of higher learning in January every year as well as responding to the new National Artisan Moderation Body (NAMB) requirements, the AgriSETA took a decision to have two application window periods for bursary.
The application window period will in future open on 1 September and close on 31 October of each year.
