(AGENPARL) – CAPE TOWN (SOUTH AFRICA), mer 25 novembre 2020
After months of hard work and preparation, a group of service staff employees are among thousands of matric pupils who are currently writing their final exams.
The Matric Project started in November last year, with 50 service staff employees and, one year later, they are writing the two subjects in the Amended Senior Certificate exams.
The CPUT matric class wrote their Business Studies exam on November 18 and are scheduled to write Geography on December 3.
The pupils initially attended contact classes but this had to be suspended in March due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
“The learning process continued by providing our learners with online support. Contact classes resumed in September 2020 when the country moved to Covid-19 Alert Level 1 and our learners attended their last class on 5 November 2020,” said Colin Bezuidenhout from Human Capital: Learning and Development.
The project is managed by Learning and Development.
“We accept and understand that the circumstances were not of the best, but we are proud of the commitment displayed by our learners during this trying period. To the CPUT Matric class of 2020, we wish you the very best and you’ve got this.”
The Amended Senior Certificate, also referred to as the adult matric, is a qualification equivalent to the National Senior Certificate and is aimed at adult learners.
Bezuidenhout said more than 100 staff members showed interest in the programme and due to funding restrictions only 50 were selected, based on an assessment. The participants also had to meet the Department of Basic Education’s entry criteria for the Amended National Senior certificate.
