The College of Education (CoE) from Unisa recently issued a statement on 24 June 2019 that the university has introduced a new qualification for the 2020 academic year: Advanced Diploma Education in Intermediate Phase Mathematics Teaching.
Details on the qualification have not been released as yet. More will be known about the course in August 2019 – when the application window for the 2020 academic year is open.
With over 40 qualifications being offered by the College of Education (view qualifications here), there is a number of different streams Unisa students can follow when it comes to becoming a teacher one day.
There are pros and cons when it comes to certain qualifications. Over time, qualifications phase out due to some reason or another. With new qualifications being added to the CoE’s roster, there are unfortunately qualifications that will be phasing out and will not be offered from 2020 onwards.
The Unisa qualifications in question are:
- Postgraduate Certificate in Education (Foundation Phase)
- Postgraduate Certificate in Education (Intermediate Phase)
Additionally, due to external factors beyond the university’s control, Unisa’s CoE is to stop offering the following qualifications for new students in 2020:
- Postgraduate Certificate in Education (Senior and FET Phase);
- Honours Bachelor of Education; and
- Additional Postgraduate Diploma in Education Streams.
