Closing down schools and having rotational attendance rosters were measures taken for short-term relief against the Covid-19 pandemic. Research by the Basic Education department is now showing that impact in lost teaching and learning will be long lasting - impacting on a generation of learners.


Congress of South African Students (COSAS) is calling for government to vaccinate learners. This comes as many learners returned to school, following their winter break. 


The Department of Education has adopted the recommendations made by a task team on the review of the National Curriculum Statement (NCS). The changes will relieve teachers and schools of some of the challenges experienced as a result of the current curriculum assessment policies and will leave more time for teaching and learning.


The Department of Education has launched a new system to collect the data of each learner in the country and track their movement throughout their school careers. The system will for the first time ensure the Education Department has accurate enrolment numbers for learners in all schools.
