Non SA School Leavers

By andrewfriedemann, 12 June, 2018

Just a quick one to kick off discussion. When entering a new 'Person' onto the system, it requires a "Last School EMIS" number. It then provides a search tool to find this.

BUT - what if they did not go to school in SA? I was sent a link to the DHET website: https://webapps.dhet.gov.za/USUS/SchoolSearch to look these up as well, and that website says one must use:

000000001 – Person never attended school
000000002 – Unable to find last school attended, last school attended was in South Africa
000000003 – Unable to find last school attended, last school attended was not in South Africa.

BUT, Indicium does not accept any of these.

So what is everyone else doing? - I am just picking a school where they live which of course is skewing all the data, but I cannot find another way to add a new person.

Why on earth do we need to know the last school of the person anyway, especially if they left school 30-50 years ago like most of our learners?
