STUDENTS who want to get started on their Advanced Certificate in Teaching (ACT) in 2016 at the University of the Free State (UFS), have one more opportunity to do so.

The starting date for applications is 12 October, and applications will be accepted until 24 October 2016.

Prof. Daniella Coetzee-Manning from the UFS South Campus said:

“In order to qualify for enrolment in the Advanced Certificates in Teaching, there are some prerequisites.

“Firstly, a prospective student has to be employed as a teacher.

“The prospective student must have access to a classroom, as practical assignments form part of the programme.

“Secondly, the programme is for teachers who are already qualified.”

The qualifications can include any of the following:

  • a three-year education (teaching) diploma,
  • a National Professional Diploma in Education (NPDE),
  • a degree in education or any degree,
  • or a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE).

“The UFS is well-prepared to assist teachers in becoming increasingly effective in their work in South African schools,” Coetzee-Manning said.

“Through continuous projects and long-term commitments to community schools, the UFS understands and continues to address the unique needs of South African teachers through our new online ACT programme,” she said.

Some of these continuous projects and commitments are the School Change Project and the widely acclaimed Internet Broadcast Project (IBP).
