School of Education targets FET Lecturers
This is being done to increase the Lecturers’ access to university education and to make a contribution to the human resource development of the colleges.
To make the Lecturers aware of academic programmes on offer, the School is visiting FET colleges to make presentations. The first in the presentation series took place at Majuba College in Newcastle recently.
Presentations were done by the Dean and Head of the School, Professor Gregory Kamwendo, the Academic Leader for higher degrees and research, Professor Pholoho Morojele and the Academic Leader for Teaching and Learning, Dr Sithabile Ntombela.
Following the presentation, Majuba College staff expressed interest in the honours and masters programmes.
Majuba College staff member, Mr Joseph Mesuwini, said: ‘I was lifted by your presentation. There are many people (Majuba staff) who can engage in the various programmes.’
The School expects to start receiving applications for admission soon. Plans are underway to form a masters degree (masters by research) cohort at Majuba College. Other cohorts could be established depending on student numbers.
