The Republic of South Africa (also known by other official names) is a country located at the southern tip of Africa. South Africa is known for its diversity, and eleven official languages are recognised in its constitution. South Africa is ethnically diverse, with the largest Caucasian, Indian, and racially mixed communities in Africa.
In recent history, South Africa has seen major changes, both in governments, society and education as the Apartheid only came to a halt in 1994. The Bill of Rights, contained in the Constitution, 1996, even mentions the need to redress the results of past racially discriminatory laws and practices (Section 29.
Everyone has the right to receive education in the official language or languages of their choice in public educational institutions where that education is reasonably practicable. The Council for Higher Education (CHE) has also published the Ministry of Education's Language Policy Framework for South African Higher Education (PDF) in 2001, which has the promotion of multilingualism as a central aspect. The National Education Policy Act, 1996 (Act 27 of 1996), empowers the Minister of Education to determine national norms and standards for education planning, provision, governance, monitoring and evaluation. The development of a well-designed and quality distance education system based on the principles of open learning is the only feasible approach to meeting the needs of the vast numbers of our people who were systematically deprived of educational opportunity in the past, while at the same time providing opportunities for the youth coming up through the educational system at present.
Formal education in South Africa is categorised according to three levels – General Education and Training (GET), Further Education and Training (FET) and Higher Education (HE).
There are also policy frameworks in South Africa that focus on inclusion such as the Policy Framework on HIV and AIDS in October 2008, which was adopted by the Minister of Education (Naledi Pandor in 2009), and the 23 public sector higher education institutions in South Africa. Higher Education South Africa (HESA) represents all 23 public universities and universities of technology. The Constitution has vested substantial power in the provincial legislatures and governments to run educational affairs (other than universities and universities of technology), subject to a national policy framework.
General Education and Training (GET): consists of the Reception Year (Grade R) and schooling up to Grade 9 and the equivalent Adult Basic Education and Training (ABET) qualification.
Further Education and Training (FET): consists of grades 10 to 12 in schools and all education and training from the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) levels 2 to 4 (equivalent to grades 10 to 12 in schools), and the N1 to N6 in FET colleges. The age of a child entering grade 1 is age five turning six by 30 June in the year of admission.
Grade R (reception year) or grade 0, the age is four turning five by 30 June in the year of admission.
Grade 12 is the year of matriculation: the final exams of high school are administered by the government and are called "matric exams" so students in the final year of high school (grade 12 or the matriculation grade) are known as "matrics" and if they pass these exams they are called matriculants or it's said that they "matriculated". The minimum requirement for admission to a higher education institution from 1 January 2009 is the National Senior Certificate.
OLSET is a provider of Open and Distance Learning in South Africa specifically for primary school children. The Department of Education established the Thutong portal, with the aim to aims to improve learning in the country through appropriate use of technology.
There are organisations that are trying to enhance education with digital resources and connectivity such as the e-Schools' Network, founded in 1993 is a non-profit, self-funded, organisation that provides 1700 schools and the FET College community e-services such as SchoolMail, (a mailbox for each learner and educator in a school), connectivity and communication solutions and training support.
The Further Education & Training (FET) institutions were affected by restructuring as they were reduced from 152 to 50 institutions. All South Africans have the right to a basic education, including adult basic education and further education. School life spans 13 years or grades, from grade 0, otherwise known as grade R or "reception year", through to grade 12 or "matric" – the year of matriculation.
The Ministry of Basic Education focuses on adult basic education and training in addition to primary and secondary education. The Further Education and Training (FET) branch is responsible for the development of policy for grades 10 to 12 in public and independent schools, as well as in public and private FET colleges. The breakdown of schools includes 26 065 ordinary schools and 9 166 other education institutions – including special schools, early childhood development (ECD) sites, public adult basic education and training (ABET) centres, public further education and training (FET) institutions and public higher education (HE) institutions. Other educational facilities include 2 278 ABET centres, 50 public FET institutions, 4 800 ECD centres and 23 HE institutions.
Compared with most other countries, education gets a large proportion of public spending – usually around 20% of total state expenditure.
Illiteracy rates currently stand at around 18% of adults over 15 years old (about 9-million adults are not functionally literate), teachers in township schools are poorly trained, and the matriculation pass rate remains low. The Wikipedia List of universities in South Africa is informative at a general level as well as for details. There are also a large number of other educational institutions in South Africa - some are local campuses of foreign universities, or foreign HEIs that conduct classes for students who write their exams at the distance-education University of South Africa while other institutions offer unaccredited diplomas. In 2004 South Africa started reforming its higher education system, merging the (university and non-university) HEIs into larger, regional unitary institutions which also caused a renaming of the so-called Technikons to Universities of Technology. CIDA Foundation UK is a university that enables previously disadvantaged learners from taking up Higher Education. The South African Schools Act (Act 84), passed by Parliament in 1996, aims to achieve greater educational opportunities for black children.
While 65% of whites over 20 years old and 40% of Indians have a high school or higher qualification, this figure is only 14% among blacks and 17% among the coloured population. The government is in particular targeting education for the poorest, with two notable programmes. The other is the National Schools Nutrition Programme, which feeds about 7-million schoolchildren every day, including all those attending primary schools in 13 rural and eight urban poverty nodes. From 2010, all grade three, six and a sample of grade nine learners write annual national assessments that are independently moderated. Starting from the 2011 academic year, government will introduce free education for the poor at undergraduate level.
In 1997, the Education White Paper 3 was published with the central proposition to create a single national co-ordinated higher education system that is planned, governed and funded as a single system. The National Plan for Higher Education (NPHE) was set up to provide a framework for the White Paper and the National Working Group (NWG) advised the Minister of Education on the appropriate arrangements for restructuring the provision of higher education on a regional basis through the development of new institutional and organisational forms, including institutional mergers and rationalisation of programme development and delivery (the NWG warned to prevent an academic drift towards university-type programmes at the expense of technikon-type programmes).
The NWG identified three main properties flowing from the principles, which it believes are critical to ensuring the “fitness for purpose” of the higher education system. In 2002, The Restructuring Of The Higher Education System In South Africa elaborated in detail on the restructuring of the HEI landscape and how to merge the dispersed institutions and campuses into regional unitary institutions.
The NWG believes that the implementation of its recommendations will result in the fundamental restructuring of the higher education system. Distance education programmes at traditionally residential institutions should be strictly regulated as further in the document it was noted that one HEI outsourced the face-to-face guidance in its Learning Centers, therefore not ensuring quality education. Apart from the one urban university and one urban technikon, and apart from the one comprehensive rural institution offering both technikon and university programmes, no other publicly funded higher education institutions should be allowed to offer programmes in the province (KwaZulu-Natal), with the exception of the new dedicated distance education institution. The Ministry’s proposals would result in 23 higher education institutions and two National Institutes for Higher Education (outlined in Appendix 1), consisting of 11 Universities, 6 Universities of Technology (previously known as Technikons), 4 Comprehensive Institutions and 2 National Institutes for Higher Education.
The universities and technikons which were incorporated with others and thus no longer exist are listed at the end of the Wikipedia article List of universities in South Africa.

In the apartheid years, there was a separate government department for white children’s schools, black children’s schools and coloured children’s schools. The House of Representatives (HOR) was the department that handled coloured childrens schooling, the Department of Education and Training (DET) handled black children’s schooling and the white children’s schools were known as Model C Schools. To this day former Model C schools still typically have the best facilities, best teachers and best educational opportunities for children. All schools receive government funding, however former Model C schools are permitted to top up the funding with fees payable by the parents of the schools. Over and above these government funded schools are private or independent schools which receive no funding from the government and are funded entirely by fees paid by the parents. In the Department of Education's Higher Education Information Management System (HEMIS), the properties of a qualification determines the total number of units of state subsidy approved by the Minister of Education for that qualification.

The Education Network is to be an entity that would network all public schools and education and training institutions.
The e-rate allows discounted access to Internet services to education institutions in South Africa. Policy development on ICTs in education date back to 1995, with the establishment of the Technology Enhanced Learning Initiatives (TELI) which was followed by the Feasibility Study for the Establishment of a Dedicated Educational Channel. The goal of the policy is that every learner in the primary and secondary school sectors should be ICT capable by 2013.
E-education is defined as much more than just developing computer literacy skills and the skills necessary to operate various types of ICTs.
South Africa has a host of dispersed and unco-ordinated programmes and projects that promote education through the use of ICTs at various levels of the education system, particularly in the formal schools sector.

Half of primary schools in England will receive ?41m over four years to teach mathematics using a method called the “mastery approach” that is used in Chinese schools. While the mastery model breaks down learning into small goals which have to be achieved before moving on, the mindset maths model aims to get pupils to develop an intuitive understanding of mathematical concepts before learning formal procedures such as addition or multiplication. Mindset theory has established that each person has ingrained beliefs regarding each subject, which pre-determine whether learning the subject will be successful.
Vice versa, it is possible to build learning environments which nurture a learner’s motivation and so make learning possible. One thing that proponents of both the mastery and mindset theory agree with is avoiding the idea that a child can have a gift for maths so that high expectations are set for all pupils. Some of the suggestions for organising in-class activities are similar in the mastery and mindset approaches. While on the surface the mastery approach talks of a curriculum designed to enable deep conceptual, as well as procedural, knowledge, a look at its principles and sample lessons reveals undue concentration on numerous rigid objectives, achieved in a strict linear order. In one implementation of the mastery approach, the process of adding two numbers is split into 23 consecutive learning objectives, which all need to be mastered separately, and may be tested separately by the teacher. Mindset approach advocates that pupils develop what is called “number sense”: an ability to choose (or invent) those methods of working with numbers which are more convenient and efficient in a particular situation. As a simple example, a person possessing number sense will never calculate 5x3 as 3+3+3+3+3, because the process of adding threes is slower, less convenient and more prone to error than adding fives, that is, 5+5+5. A person with a developed number sense may have gaps in the knowledge they store in their memory (for example, they will not necessarily know the whole times table by heart), but they will be effective at using the principles they have internalised.
What is concerning at this stage is that unlike the mindset approach there is, as yet, no indication that the mastery approach is being systematically and empirically tested. There are striking differences between mindset-approach and mastery-approach classroom activities, and we are not sure that in the long term, the mastery approach is better. We are left with some worrying unanswered questions – particularly as half of UK schools are now being encouraged to move to a mastery approach before any empirical evaluation of its impact on learning has taken place. The internship cover letter should focus more on what you want to do, rather than what you’ve done.

English is the most commonly spoken language in official and commercial public life, however it is only the fifth most spoken home language. Although 79.6% of South Africa's population is Black, this category is neither culturally nor linguistically homogeneous, as they speak a number of different Bantu languages, nine of which have official status.
Apartheid was a government-enforced system of racial segregation which had a very limiting impact on the everyday life, living areas, job opportunities and education of coloured people in South Africa.
It also affects the language of each qualification certificate and transcript issued to a student within the South African higher education system, as stated in the Higher Education Qualifications Framework (HEQF) (PDF), 2007. The South African government is divided into departments instead of what we call Ministries.
It will allow people access to education and training and the ability to determine where, when, what and how they want to learn (ANC, 1994:78). By mid-2007, the South African public-education system had 12,3 million learners, 387 000 educators, 26 592 schools, 2 278 Abet centres, 50 public FET institutions, 4 800 Early Childhood Development (ECD) centres and 23 HE institutions. It is the successor of the South African Universities Vice-Chancellors Association (SAUVCA) and the Committee of Technikon Principals (CTP). The national Department of Education is responsible for formulating policy, setting norms and standards, and monitoring and evaluating all levels of education. After completion of level 1 of the NQF, a learner could achieve a GETC and after completion of level 4 of the NQF, an FETC. Becoming a matriculant is required (with certain minimum conditions) for tertiary education. Committed to the goal of 'Education for All', OLSET, a South African-based NGO working in collaboration with the country's National and Provincial Departments of Education, actively supports the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) through the considerable geographic outreach of its Interactive Radio Learning Programme.
It offers free educational resources, policy information, and interactive services concerning all aspects of the South African Schooling Sector. According to the Bill of Rights of the country's Constitution, the state has an obligation, through reasonable measures, to progressively make this education available and accessible.
It also provides comprehensive listings of the many other providers both domestic and foreign.
It depends on funding and sponsoring from companies and individuals and demands from its students that they go to their own communities and educate their peers. One is fee-free schools, institutions that receive all their required funding from the state and so do not have to charge school fees. The programme was extended in 2009 to 1 500 secondary schools around the country, feeding 1-million secondary school pupils from grades 8 to 12. Students in Further Education and Training colleges who qualify for financial aid will not pay academic fees. To meet the transformation goals of this paper, a different HE system was necessary, as stated in the Towards a New Higher Education Landscape report (2002). It will transform the apartheid edifice of the higher education system and lay the foundation for a higher education system that is consistent with the vision, values and principles of our young and vibrant democratic order.

The three departments had different funding available, different resources at their disposal and issued different exams.
Former HOR schools, although not quite as sidelined as DET schools, still have relatively poor infrastructure and facilities.
Thus different Model C schools can have different budgets, different teacher to student ratios, and varying quality of facilities, all based on what the parents can afford. The record of subsidy units per qualification is an essential part of the determination of full-time equivalent student totals.

Since 1997 SchoolNet SA manages a variety of projects covering all aspects of the use of ICTs, directed mainly at historically disadvantaged schools in South Africa. Section 73 of the ECA states that Internet services provided to all public schools and all public further education and training institutions must be provided at a minimum discounted rate of 50% of the total charge levied by the licensee. In 2001, the National Department of Education and the Department of Communication jointly released a Strategy for Information and Communication Technology in Education, which is believed to have laid the basis for the e-Education White Paper adopted in 2004. To achieve this, schools are expected to be developed into e-schools consisting of a community of both teachers and learners. A study by SchoolNet South Africa (2002) lists 34 different programmes and projects in the schools sector.
It initiated ICT schooling in 16 countries in Africa through the demo NEPAD e-Schools Demonstration Project. In South Africa, Robinson in 2010 estimates conservatively that are approximately 10- to 12-million WAP-enabled cell phone users in SA, and Goldstuck (2010) reports that for 450 000 users cell phones are the primary form of access to the Internet.

Yet during the last ten years many primary schools in England have started embracing another method, called the “mindset approach”, which is supported by 30 years of psychological research in the US and more recently in the UK. Carol Dweck, the most prominent researcher in this field, has demonstrated spectacularly that a wrong kind of environment can destroy a learner’s motivation, possibly with long-lasting effects.
Mathematics, a subject which is often portrayed as difficult in the media, has immediately attracted the attention of researchers, and a number of principles have evolved for developing classroom environments which are conducive to learning mathematics. According to mindset theory, a learner’s belief that they are or are not talented is a dangerous illusion, which damages their progress. For example, all pupils spend the same period of time working on the same problem, rather than some pupils racing forward to the next problem. It aims to be more exploratory, and tends to start from the “complicated” concepts, rather than reaching them by a long path. If a certain mathematical fact needs to be rediscovered because they do not remember it, they will be able to do it effortlessly. Only one preliminary study in the UK has been published, and it expresses only cautious optimism regarding the mastery model.
The new government focus on the mastery method may also be confusing for teachers, after they have been encouraged to teach with the mindset approach.

To the north of South Africa lie Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique and Swaziland, while the Kingdom of Lesotho is an independent enclave surrounded by South African territory. Department of Education is responsible for formulating policy, setting norms and standards, and monitoring and evaluating all levels of education and also in funding Higher Education Institutions through subsidies and by providing financial support to students through National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS).
The launch of HESA was in part driven by the restructuring of the higher education sector, which resulted in the establishment of new institutional types, but also by the need for a strong, unified body of leadership. It also funds HE institutions through subsidies and by providing financial support to students through the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS).
Some private schools also offer a post-matric "sixth form" year which allows students to sit for A-level examinations.
At those state-aided schools where parents pay for extra teachers by way of school fees, and at the more expensive private schools, the maximum number of pupils is usually about 30. In 2008-9 OLSET's English In Action Radio Learning Programme reached over 1.8 million learners and 52,000 teachers in seven of South Africa’s nine provinces.
