Looming disaster for training division as Covid-19 hits scores of lecturers over festive interval

Mhlanga’s feedback come as President Cyril Ramaphosa held a gathering on Sunday with the Nationwide Coronavirus Command Council as SA surpassed a million Covid-19 infections.

Ramaphosa is predicted to make a nationwide handle to the general public quickly.

Earlier this month, fundamental training minister Angie Motshekga conceded the disruptions to educating brought on by Covid-19 will want an extended time-frame to deal with.

Motshekga stated the division needed to trim its curriculum this yr, with the assistance of consultants, to complete the tutorial yr.

“The disruptions of 2020 will want an extended time-frame to deal with. Now we have a three-year curriculum restoration plan. From 2021, we shall be implementing the restoration educating plan in grades 1 to 12,” she stated.
