The UFS South Campus, located in Bloemfontein, is the very first campus to provide an entirely online Advanced Certificate in Teaching (Act) programme for teachers, thereby significantly addressing long-standing educational, economic and political needs.
The Act online programme addresses the requirement for a teaching and learning pathway for teachers wanting to advance in their careers. This qualification has a specific aim to improve teachers’ knowledge and competencies towards a new subject, or strengthen their subject specialisation. Furthermore, the Act programme can play an important role in improving the quality of education and in that way the quality of life of many South Africans
The Act programme will not only upgrade the qualification of those teachers who are currently employed without adequate training, but it also offers specialist education to those teachers who need to strengthen their subject specialisation knowledge base
