Studiesentrums regoor Suid-Afrika en Namibië maak dit moontlik vir praktiserende onderwysers om die volgende kwalifikasies in die onderwys te bekom deur middel van afstandsonderrig:

 

Gevorderde Sertifikaat in Onderwys (GSO/ACT)

Diploma in Graad R Onderrig

 

Gevorderde Sertifikaat in Onderwys (GSO/ACT)

Oorsig

Gevorderde onderwyssertifikaat in Grondslagfase-onderwys

Gevorderde onderwyssertifikaat in Intermediere-onderwys

Die gevorderde sertifikaat in onderwys (GSO/ACT) het ten doel om erkenning te gee aan gespesialiseerde akademiese studies in onderwys. Die Departement van Basiese Onderwys asook Hoër Onderwys en Opleiding het besef dat baie onderwysers ʼn behoefte het aan meer vakkennis, of die fokus, vak of fase van hul onderrig wil verander. Die GSO/ACT kan in hierdie behoefte voorsien. Dit is hoofsaaklik beroepsgeoriënteerd, en wil onderwysers voorberei om ʼn nuwe vak of fase te onderrig. Die kwalifikasie is fase-gerig: student kan spesialiseer in die Grondslag-, Intermediêre-, Senior- of Verde Onderwys en Opleidingsfase. Vanaf 2016 bied die Eenheid vir Oop Afstandsleer by die NWU die GSO aan in die Grondslag- en Intermediêre Fases.

Om vir die GSO te registreer word vereis dat ‘n student reeds moet beskik oor ‘n driejaar-onderwyskwalifikasie van minstens 360 krediete, verwerf aan ‘n erkende hoër onderwysinstelling. Daar is geen vereiste betreffend vorige onderwyservaring nie.  Hierdie is die enigste kwalifikasie wat studente wat die driejaar- NPOD (NPDE) verwerf het, kan volg ten einde hul studies voort te sit tot op honneurs- of meestersvlak. Studente wat egter in besit is van ‘n BEd, GOS, NGOS of selfs BEdHons kan ook inskryf indien hulle hul vak- of fasefokus wil verander of hul vaardighede wil opskerp. Dit is ‘n eenjaarkwalifikasie wat via afstandsonderrig oor twee jaar aangebied word.

DIE GEVORDERDE ONDERWYSSERTIFIKAAT IN GRONDSLAGFASE-ONDERWYS (ACFPT)

Hierdie program rus onderwysers toe om onderrig te gee in gr R, 1, 2 en 3. Hulle neem drie generiese modules (Grondslae van Onderwys, Inligting- en Kommunikasietegnologie en ‘n Praktiese komponent (werkgeïntegreerde leer), asook ses vakinhoudelike modules wat op die Kurrikulum en Assesseringsbeleidsverklaringsdokument (CAPS) gebaseer is.

DIE GEVORDERDE ONDERWYSSERTIFIKAAT IN INTERMEDIêRE ONDERWYS (ACIPT)

Hierdie program rus onderwysers toe om onderrig te gee aan leerders in gr 4, 5 en 6. Hulle neem drie generiese modules (Grondslae van Onderwys, Inligting- en Kommunikasietegnologie en ‘n Praktiese komponent (werkgeïntegreerde leer asook drie Fundamentele modules: twee in Engels Eerste Addisionele Taal en een in Elementêre Wiskunde. Verder kies studente twee spesialiserings uit Lewensvaardighede, Wiskunde, Wetenskap en Tegnologie en/of Sosiale Wetenskap.

Studente wat die Gevorderde Onderwyssertifikaat-program volg, moet die module Werkgeïntegreerde Leer (WIL) voltooi. Indien hulle praktiserende onderwysers is, sal hulle geassesseer word deur goedgekeurde mentors by die skole waar hulle onderwysers is. Indien nie in ‘n onderwyspos nie, sal ‘n mentor aangewys word by ‘n skool wat in vennootskap met die NWU is, en moet die student drie weke praktiese onderwys daar aanbied om geassesseer te word.

Bachelor of Education in Senior and FET Teaching

Overview

SAQA nr: 97262  (Distance and Contact)

The Bachelor of Education (BEd) in Senior & FET teaching is a four year, vocationally specific, professional degree that integrates, from the first year, both the academic study and the professional preparation required to be a teacher.
Successful completion of the programme qualifies the student for registration with the South African Council for Educators (SACE) and for employment in South African schools as an educator. In addition to serving as an initial qualification to teach, successful completion of the degree provides students with the opportunity to continue their study of education at a postgraduate level.
Senior and FET-phase educators specialise in the education of learners in grades 7 - 12. They usually teach in selected subjects only and therefore are required to have a solid understanding of their subject and a mastery of core teaching skills.

Admission

  • A National Senior Certificate with the minimum statutory requirements for admission to a
  • B degree (EXEMPTION).
  • A minimum APS Score of 24:
  • The results obtained in four designated subjects and two NSC subjects are used in the computation of the APS score. Life Orientation is excluded. Students with an APS score higher than 24, who do not have a degree endorsement (exemption), may be considered for admittance after completing a successful Senate-approved admission test.

Advanced Diploma in Senior Phase and FET Teaching (Adv. Dip (SP & FET Teaching)

Overview

SAQA nr: 97757

The ADT (Advanced Diploma in Teaching) programme in the Faculty of Education Sciences of the North-West University prepares student teachers to become competent professional educators in a variety of educational and training careers. The overarching goal of the educational experience in this particular programme is to provide all our students with the knowledge, skills and attitudes to live and work in a globally interdependent world and with the support services to help them succeed. This requires a conscious, purposeful, sustained and social-constructivist focus on the actual learning of students that may take place because of their interactions in specific study-related groups. For this reason, this academic programme also seeks to foster inclusivity and to develop a sense of personal and social responsibility and ethical conduct in and among our students by encouraging involvement in environmental affairs, as well as in community and public service. It endeavours to offer and cultivate a teaching-learning environment that is hospitable to diverse socio-conventional and linguistic interests and activities.
The Advanced Diploma in Teaching (ADT) is focused on the initial training of teachers for teaching in the Senior and Further Education and Training Phases, thus Grades 7 to 12.
The ADT serves as a professional capping qualification for candidates who have completed a relevant B-degree or a relevant qualification with at least 360-credit qualification and wish to enter the teaching profession.
Students, who obtained this qualification with its focused vision on classroom practice, will be able to fulfil all the contextual roles and competencies of an effective educator.
With this certificate an educator can teach from Grades 7 to 12.
The programme equips and empowers prospective educators in the Senior and FET phases to:
•    Develop and demonstrate a deep knowledge and understanding of education theory and practice;
•    Integrate education theory and practice as applied competence;
•    Demonstrate and implement the subject specific pedagogical competencies of the Senior and FET educator that embrace teaching, learning and assessment in practice,
•    Develop and demonstrate knowledge, skills, attitudes and values to become responsible, independent and contributing scholars of the professional educational community in a diverse and changing national and international context; and
•    Develop and demonstrate critical, creative and reflective problem solving skills within educational and societal context.
The qualification consists of 140 credits divided into 14 modules. These modules include fundamental modules, generic modules and specialisation methodologies.

This specialised qualification will provide the successful student with both horizontal and vertical articulation possibilities. To articulate vertically, a student can seek access to the BEd Honours (NQF 8) or a Postgraduate Diploma in Education (NQF 8), specializing further in a cognate subject, phase or practice contained in this initial qualification. These NQF Level 8 qualifications ensure access to further postgraduate studies (Master’s & Doctoral Degrees) in cognate study areas. A horizontal articulation is also possible to the AdvDip (Education) qualification on NQF level 7, for students who want to develop a new role to support teaching and learning, for example school librarianship, education for the deaf, etc.

Admission

  • An undergraduate university degree with two recognised school subjects or a recognised qualification of 360 credits at NQF level 6 and that includes at least two recognised school subjects.
  • Students must also be able to take two methodology subjects in order to obtain the qualification.
  • The curriculum for the qualification is structured as follows:
  • (A recognised school subject is one included in the Department of Basic Education’s official list of school subjects.) These are recognised school subjects completed in a qualification obtained:
  • a recognised school subject at level 3 + a recognised school subject at level 2 (depending on subject specific requirements).
  • In the event of a choice between methodologies for academic subjects already obtained for a prior qualification, a student must select from these the two subjects that were obtained at the highest level. In the case of Languages, the relevant language subject must be at year level 3.
  • Examples of recognised school subjects completed in initial qualification obtained:
  • Languages (Afrikaans, English or Setswana), Geography, History, Mathematics, Sociology and Psychology, Technology, Human Movement Sciences, Life Sciences (Physiology, Botony, Zoology), Physical Sciences (Physics, Chemistry), Business Management, Accounting, Economics, Tourism, Information Technology, Music and Art.

Faculty Specific requirements
Exeptions:

  • A student who wants to take the Methodology of Mathematics must have completed Mathematics on level 2 or otherwise Mathematics on level 1 with one of the following on level 2: Statistics, Mathematical Statistics and Applied Mathematics.
  •     A student who wants to take the Methodology of Life Orientation must have a combination of Psychology and any one of the following subjects on degree level: Sociology, Human Movement Science, Labour- and Industrial studies, Ethics or Nutrition. Because of the high volume of Life Orientation applications, a cut-off point of 65% average for the highest subject contributing to the Life Orientation methodology is set.
  • The student must already have a second school subject on degree level for the second methodology.
  • A student who wants to take the Methodology of Languages (Afrikaans & English) must have completed it on level 3. Setswana on level 2 will be considered.
  •     A student who wants to take Life Sciences as methodology need to present one of the  following subjects Botany,  Zoology or Physiology on level three and another on level 2 for admission  to the PGCE.
