Spoudazo offers a unique opportunity to companies specifically in the Information Communications Technology (ICT) related industry to channel their Socio Economic Development (SED) funding towards a new project to support under-qualified teachers in the education sector.
According to new legislation, in order to receive the necessary B-BBEE recognition, these companies have to spend their SED funding on ICT related projects.
Spoudazo Enterprises has taken hands with the University of the Free State to provide the 100% online Advanced Certificate in Teaching (ACT) programme as one means of substantively addressing long-standing educational, socio-economic and political needs as South Africa have to address the needs of thousands of under-qualified educators annually for the next eight to ten years. Completion of the mentioned Advanced Teaching Certificate is one of the Department of Higher Education and Training’s pathways for recognising a qualified teacher (REQV14).
Many of these abovementioned underqualified teachers in the education sector are from the previously disadvantaged population. This creates an opportunity for both the private- and public sector to participate in offering a solution for the education sector by either funding the tuition fees or the technology costs (specifically by the ITC companies) of these most needed teachers in our beautiful country.
In partnership with your company, we will not only be able to decrease the number of under-qualified teachers in the education sector of SA, but also accelerate the pace at which they qualify. The duration of the ACT Online programme is 18 to 20 months compared to the 24 months of the blended programme.
