2016-09-07 06:00

STUDENTS who want to get started on their Advanced Certificate in Teaching in 2016 have one more opportunity to do so.

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

“In order to qualify to enroll for the Advanced Certificates in Teaching, there are some pre-requisites,” says Prof. Daniella Coetzee-Manning from the University of the Free State’s (UFS) South Campus.

“Firstly, prospective students have to be currently employed as a teacher and/or have access to a classroom, as practical assignments form part of the programme.

“The programme is for teachers who are already qualified with any of the following qualifications: a three year education (teaching) diploma; NPDE (National Professional Diploma in Education); Degree in education; any degree plus a PGCE (Post Graduate Certificate in Education).”

The UFS is well-prepared to assist teachers in becoming increasingly effective in their work in South African schools.

Through continuous projects and long-term commitments to community schools, such as the School Change Project and the widely-acclaimed Internet Broadcast Project (IBP), the UFS understands and continues to address the unique needs of South African teachers through their new online ACT programme.
