Having taught in government schools as well as having been involved with training in the adult sector, I must make this comment regarding SA education – where SA degrees and other qualifications were once sought after around the world, the question I get asked is as follows when applying for work ovreseas – before or after 1994?
I have been on this website for some time and although I have not contributed much since leaving SA, I have this to say on observing the comments and posts – SA Education is in a shambles. Quite honestly the bodies that run the so coalled SETAs are mostly inept at going about there business.
I have looked at the systems overseas and they seem to be running smoothly whereas in SA you never know what or which qualification is going to change and when. I have a Higher Diploma in Education and various other qualifications that I have obtained whilst being overseas, all in some way related to education.
I am saddened by the state of things in SA. Just my thoughts and frustration that I am venting.
Keep well and stay safe everyone and soldier on.
