Wednesday, October 21, 2020 - 13:43Author: WeThinkCode_

Article Category: Learnerships 2020

 Three hundred places are available for the hotly demanded NQF-5 course, to be held at WeThinkCode_ campuses in Johannesburg and Cape Town.

Each year WeThinkCode_ receives over 50 000 applications from young South Africans looking for a start in the growing technology sector, which is crying out for digital skills, particularly in the area of programming and software development.

“We’re looking for students with both talent potential and drive to succeed,” says WeThinkCode_’s CEO Nyari Samushonga.  “Our course has been structured to meet the needs of South Africa’s corporate environment while bringing the best out of our selected candidates,” she adds.

WeThinkCode_ has a 98% rate of employment among its programming graduates, at average starting salaries of R240 000.  Many of its graduates have subsequently been promoted to positions of seniority in their organisations.

“We draw on the expertise of some of the world’s leading technologists in the design of our courses. Mentoring and individual tuition are built into the course as well, to ensure that we bring out the best in each one of our students,” Samushonga says.

South Africa has a vast pool of untapped talent with the aptitude to be trained in technology, which given the right training and input, have proven to become excellent coders and programmers.  Some of these have come from the most surprising quarters. 

“Applicants need not be hesitant about applying as there is no need for a specific background in technology.  We have former chefs and musicians, for example, on the course,” Samushonga adds.

The course is open to anyone between the ages of 17 and 35.  Interested applicants apply online, where their logic and problem solving abilities are tested, attend an open day to learn more about the programme and complete a critical thinking test.  They are then required to attend a rigorous bootcamp before being selected and enrolled into the two-year programme. 

There are other economic and social drivers that make this course so important.  The shortage of tech skills has been aggravated by the accelerated demand across the spectrum for digital transformation and accompanying skills as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“This is a perfect opportunity for smart, ambitious young people to rethink their careers in terms of technology,” Samushonga says.

WeThinkCode_’s two-year programming course is certified by the ICT Seta and earns its graduates a NQF5 qualification.   The course trains its graduates to be full stack developers equipped with the ability to build software solutions within any enterprise.

“WeThinkCode_ has successfully placed over 300 graduates in high-paying jobs since we started four years ago.  Each year our Academy is improving its selection processes and teaching methods to ensure that everyone entering the course has an excellent chance of completing it,” Samushonga says.

Call For SASSA To Extend All Grant Top-Ups

Wednesday, October 21, 2020 - 13:33Author: Simbongile Makanda

The President's recent announcement of the extension of the R350 grant has been met with mixed feelings. Concerns have been raised about other grants and why they will not be extended like the R350 grant.

Article Category: News

The top-ups to existing grants will be stopped while the R350 grant receives an extension. This means people who relied on these grants will no longer receive an extra R500 or R250 top up when collecting their grants.

There are concerns about the impact this will have on women, who are often the caregivers responsible for making ends meet with the grants.

At the beginning of the lockdown, the president introduced the Temporary Covid-19 Social Relief of Distress grant. This grant was meant to provide financial relief of R350 to unemployed South Africans.

Along with this grant, the government decided to top up other existing grants such as disability grants and child grants. 

The Covid-19 People’s Coalition has expressed its disappointment at the President's decision to not extend top-up grants. The organisation feels that women will be disadvantaged the most as they are caregivers with households that depend on them. 

It also argued that the grants have been very helpful for many families who were left without jobs because of Covid-19.

“Caregivers are excluded from receiving the SRD grant so women are not only expected to take care of children but they are punished for it. This is a testament that, despite the government’s rhetoric in support of women, actual policy is abandoning the most precarious of women and children.

The Coalition has called for the government to help women in need by extending all top-ups for existing grants. 

“If the government is to align its rhetoric to action that would seriously assist in supporting women, then the caregiver grant must be extended and increased immediately.”The Department of Social Development said all queries about the decision to not extend all grants should be directed to the National Treasury. 

The Minister of Finance, Tito Mboweni is due to deliver his Medium-Term Budget Policy Statement (MTBPS). He is expected to address the grants when he delivers his statement. 

“All we can confirm at this point is that the R350 Covid-related grant has been extended by three months as per the announcement by the president,” said the National Treasury.

What South Africans must do to avoid a resurgence of COVID-19 infections

Tuesday, October 20, 2020 - 21:44Author: The Conversation

South Africa’s stringent lockdown earlier this year may have saved lives by containing the spread of COVID-19. New COVID-19 infections have been declining and lockdown restrictions relaxed. But this has triggered fears of a new wave of infections.

Article Category: News

South Africa’s stringent lockdown earlier this year may have saved lives by containing the spread of COVID-19. New COVID-19 infections have been declining and lockdown restrictions relaxed. But this has triggered fears of a new wave of infections.

Several countries have experienced a spike in infections following the easing of harsh lockdown measures. These include South Korea, Canada, Spain and the UK. Health systems are once again becoming overwhelmed, and countries have resorted to stringent lockdown measures once again.

The new round has been characterised by increases in cases – mostly driven by infections among younger groups – but not necessarily increased deaths.

To understand how the country might avoid this it’s useful to look at patterns of behaviour among South Africans after the initial easing of lockdown restrictions from level 4 to level 3 on the 1st of June. A further easing was introduced on the 17th of August, moving people from level 3 to level 2. This left only a few restrictions in place, such as mandatory mask-wearing, no international travel and a six-hour curfew at night.

In a survey done during July and August we found that more people were wearing masks than was the case when we conducted the survey in May and June. But this was coupled with a significant decrease in staying at home.

The survey findings signal trade-off in behaviours. This doesn’t bode well for the country as people adjust to life with virtually no restrictions. It is key to continue high-impact non-pharmaceutical interventions that will not impede economic activity, but limit spread. These measures include wearing masks, handwashing and physical distancing.

More must be done to re-inforce these preventative behaviours to avoid a surge in infections. This is particularly urgent given that South Africa’s early strict lockdown resulted in tremendous social and economic costs to the country.

But for these to be effective, high levels of public adherence are required. For instance, research has shown that to flatten the infection curve, 80% of the population must wear masks.

Why human behaviour matters

Human behaviour has been shown to play a significant role in the spike of infections, commonly referred to as the second wave. As restrictions on movement have been relaxed, social activities have increased. In South Korea, nightclubs have been identified as one of the biggest COVID-19 clusters in Seoul. There have also been outbreaks at several churches.

An increase in social night life has also been identified as a significant contributor in Spain. A recent cluster outbreak at a nightclub in Cape Town may signal the start of similar events in South Africa.

The findings of the survey we conducted don’t bode well.

As part of the National Income Dynamics Study-Coronavirus Rapid Mobile Survey (NIDS-CRAM), we measured the adoption of non-pharmaceutical interventions between May and June; as well as July and August in South Africa.

The broadly nationally representative panel survey collected information on 7,073 South Africans in May and June. Follow-up surveys were conducted with 5,676 individuals in July and August. The two surveys coincided with the relaxation of lockdown regulations from alert level 4 to alert level 3. This included a return to economic activity for more jobs, outdoor exercise, reopening of restaurants and the gradual return to schools.

Our study found that between May/June and July/August this year, self-reported mask-wearing increased from 49% to 74%. The use of hand sanitisers increased from 10% to 35%.

But over the same period there was a drop in physical distancing (23% to 19%), avoiding large groups (16% to 7%) and staying at home (44% to 36%).

The one silver lining was that there was little evidence of respondents placing their trust in poor science. In the July/August survey less than 2% of respondents reported protecting themselves against COVID-19 by drinking hot lemon water and eating garlic. The number was only 1% in the earlier survey.

Going forward

The concern is that non-pharmaeucital interventions adherence among South Africans may decrease over time. Mask-wearing and physical distancing are among the more cost-effective and least disruptive measures of mitigating the risk of infection. As South African policy makers err on the side of caution and take steps to prepare for another wave of infections, non-pharmaceutical intervention adherence should remain top of mind.

COVID-19 messaging must continue to highlight the importance of adherence to these interventions. Wearing masks and avoiding large gatherings should be considered the social norm. The South African government’s mandatory mask-wearing policy, published in July this year, should therefore remain in place until a vaccine is accessible to all.

Messaging should target young people, warning them about the danger of transmitting the disease to vulnerable groups, including populations older than 60 and those with comorbidities.

Non-pharmaceutical intervention messaging should also contain specific and actionable recommendations, as these have been found to be more effective than generalist recommendations. For instance, messaging that reads “wear a mask when you go shopping” may be more effective than just “wear a mask”.

South Africa is a long way off from being able to rely on immunity from infection. In any event, the evidence on whether people can contract COVID-19 twice is still mixed, and accurately measuring immunity to the virus is difficult.

This underscores the need to take the precautions that have been shown to slow the spread of infection. This will not only reduce the number of people dying from the disease. It will also mitigate against the need to impose tough new restrictions on economic activity.

Initiation Schools To Reopen Soon

Tuesday, October 20, 2020 - 15:39Author: Simbongile Makanda

Initiation schools have been unable to operate since the start of the Covid-19 lockdown in March. This affected many initiation schools that operate during the winter season. However, change for many hopeful initiates in the Eastern Cape.

Article Category: News

The Congress of Traditional Leaders of South Africa (Contralesa) has approved for initiation schools to reopen in December. Although Contralesa has given initiation schools the go-ahead, the government has not yet approved their decision. 

Contralesa Gauteng chairperson, Prince Manene Tabane said the move to level 1 was one of the reasons for allowing initiation schools to operate again. The Congress had also been receiving pressure from parents who have been eager to send their sons to initiation schools.

Contralesa president Kgosi Mathupa Mokoena said the continued suspension of initiation schools would lead to an increase in illegal schools. 

“When there are many illegal schools, we might not know their location and it would be impossible for us to monitor them to make sure there are no challenges,”

Mokoena said there will be a limit on the number of boys that initiation schools can take in. Initiation schools that do not follow the Covid-19 health and safety measures will be closed immediately. 

The deputy minister of Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs (COGTA), Obed Bapela said initiation schools are still not allowed to operate under lockdown level 1. 

According to Bapela, there have been many consultations with the Department of Health and provincial premiers. 

All other provinces agreed to not continue with the suspension of initiation schools but the Eastern Cape said it would go ahead.

“We don't need permission from anyone to practise our culture, but as responsible leaders, we informed our government. We've made it very strict that anyone who might not be willing to adhere to the set protocols will not be permitted to initiate.” said Mokoena.

 Tabane has urged all initiation schools to follow the correct Covid-19 health and safety protocols as Contrales will be keeping a close eye on schools operating during December.

NSFAS Protests Officially Come To An End

Tuesday, October 20, 2020 - 15:34Author: Sakinah Samuels

Protests initiated by The National Education, Health and Allied Worker's Union (NEHAWU) with members from the National Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) has now come to an end. An agreement between the two parties has now been reached and outlined.

Protests initiated by The National Education, Health and Allied Worker's Union (NEHAWU) with members from the National Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) has now come to an end.

NEHAWU and NSFAS has reached an agreement and signed a wage negotiation agreement on Monday.

NEHAWU has been participating in protests for two weeks demanding that NSFAS gives workers' an increase of 8% to their salaries and NSFAS could initially only offer 4.3%. Salary negotiations have been happening since June.

Subsequent to weeks of collapsed talks both NSFAS and NEHAWU went back to the negotiation table to work on a wage agreement.

- NSFAS

This wage agreement will have NSFAS employees be back at work from today, 20 October, as agreed upon by both parties.

An agreement was reached which NSFAS says will, "increase the salary budget of the bargaining unit by 4.5% which collectively amounts to R6 296 429".

This increase will be put into action and applied on a sliding scale outlined as follows:

  1. Level 3-8: an increase of 6% and a non-recurring once-off amount of R1457.74
  2. Level 9-10: an increase of 3%
  3. Level 11-12: an increase of 1%

This salary increase will be implemented on 30 October and backdated to 1 April 2020, said NSFAS.

NSFAS and NEHAWU have fully acknowledged that there is an urgent need to build and maintain relations amongst two parties which will be in the best interest of both organisations.

- NSFAS

Negotiations took place as NSFAS said, "NSFAS together with NEHAWU had established the National Bargaining Forum (NBF), a platform where issues of mutual interest are discussed, negotiations take place, agreements are reached and formally tabled at the bargaining forum".

NEHAWU initially wanted an increase of 13% but later decreased it to 8%. NSFAS explained, "NSFAS together with NEHAWU had established the National Bargaining Forum (NBF), a platform where issues of mutual interest are discussed, negotiations take place, agreements are reached and formally tabled at the bargaining forum."

A workshop will also take place for the two parties before the end of January 2021 which will see them build a relationship.

SASSA Won't Be Extending Grant Top-Ups

Tuesday, October 20, 2020 - 13:54Author: Sakinah Samuels

President Ramaphosa, when announcing that the the Special Relief of Distress R350 grant would be extended until January, also made it clear that top-ups will not continue to be made on grants from SASSA. SASSA also previously announced that they would be extending temporary grants until December.

Article Category: News

SASSA has said that top-ups would no longer be made on old-age grants, child support grants and foster grants as they were for lockdown. 

During his address on government’s reconstruction and economic recovery plan last week, President Cyril Ramaphosa said:

All the top-ups which were linked to other forms of grants have come to an end and anybody who has been getting that top-up would not be extended until January.

Ramaphosa said that these top ups to the existing grants along with the Covid-19 Special Relief of Distress grant saw Government dishing out close to R40 billion to over 17 million people in South Africa.

“The evidence suggests that the expansion of social protection has kept more than 5 million people above the food poverty line during the past  six months. The Special COVID-19 Grant, in particular, represents a significant achievement, reaching more than six million unemployed people in a short space of time,” Ramaphosa said.

"Over two million citizens lost their jobs in the country’s second financial quarter, the economy contracted by 16.4% when compared to the previous quarter, and National Treasury has said it expects a significant shortfall in revenue collection", reported IOL.

This economic shock is unprecedented in our country, and it will take an extraordinary effort to recover from it

- President Cyril Ramaphosa

He also announced that the R350 grant would be extended for another three months and will then be terminated in Januray 2021. There was bad news however from the President. He explained that it would be too expensive for the country to make the R350 grant a permanent feature.

Ramaphosa said that the grant can't be expanded beyond three months by saying, "The stretched nature of our financial resources does make it difficult and impossible to extend it beyond the three months.” 

SASSA announced earlier this month that some temporary grants would be extended until December as well.

The temporary disability grants that lapsed in July, or were due to lapse between August – October 2020, have been extended until 31 December this year. Care dependency grants that were extended to October, or were due to lapse between November – December 2020, have been extended until 31 December this year.

Schools Warned Against Hosting Matric Balls

Tuesday, October 20, 2020 - 13:28Author: Simbongile Makanda

For years, matric balls have been something many learners look forward to as they celebrate the end of their final year in high school. Some schools have made it a tradition to host the dances at the end of the year, but the Basic Education Department is warning against this.

Article Category: News

The department fears that learners will be at risk of being infected with Covid-19 if schools host gatherings such as the matric dance. The final exams are set to take place in pretty soon and many learners could be badly affected if they get infected so close to the start of exams. 

Spokesperson of the Department of Basic Education, Elijah Mhlanga explained that learners could face two risks if their schools host matric balls now.

"The first one is you could organise a gathering where learners are at high risk of being infected and when they are infected then it means they will not be able to write the exam for as long as their results indicate that they are positive"

He said these learners would only be able to sit to write their exams in May or June 2021. The second risk that the department fears is that learners will lose focus and focus too much on partying. 

"The focus will be too much on these parties and move away from the real world which is revision. In that case, then they will fail"

Mhlanga recently confirmed that learners who are sick or showing symptoms will not be allowed to write the final exams this year. Instead, these learners will have to write supplementary exams next year.

As the final exams draw close, the department has been planning and thinking of Covid-19 friendly venues for the exams to take place. 

The department said schools will be making use of churches and community halls to write exams. These venues will have more space than school halls and will help limit the spread of the virus. 

“In terms of actual preparations, the teachers and invigilators are there and we hope that they too will keep safe so that we don’t have to replace them along the way if they get tested positive,” said Mhlanga

 The exams will start on Thursday 5 November and end on Tuesday 15 December. The results for the final exams will be released on 23 February 2021. 

Some universities and colleges have adjusted the start of their academic calendars to accommodate the release of the results.

The department is no longer accepting registrations for the final exams, as registrations have now closed.

Ways To Reduce Stress and Anxiety

Tuesday, October 20, 2020 - 12:39Author: Boston City Campus & Business College

Headlines such as “Experts warn of low matric pass rates for 2020” are now in the media, and adding fear into a situation that already feels tense, as well as causing anxiety to students who have had so much to cope with already. Below, we note some quick and effective study tips from an interview with Dr Linda Meyer, Operations and Sector Support at Universities South Africa.

Article Category: Study Tips

Headlines such as “Experts warn of low matric pass rates for 2020” are now in the media, and adding fear into a situation that already feels tense, as well as causing anxiety to students who have had so much to cope with already. Students have had less support and less school days, yet are heading towards matric exams on which their futures depend. Students may have to adjust their end goals, and parents must be supportive of the process as well as the goals and the outcomes of all exams. 

Below, we note some quick and effective study tips from an interview with Dr Linda Meyer, Operations and Sector Support at Universities South Africa. 

“Covid19 does not contribute to our contextual stability, we are in a volatile and unconstructive environment which has resulted in higher stress levels. We have to cope with exam stress as well as the uncertainty of what is to come. 

Stress is a feeling of emotional and physical tension – we are being judged by our peers and parents, and we then see ourselves as success or failures. We are self-critical.  Also, as human beings we often leave things to the last minute, which creates more stress. 

Students who prepare and plan will feel less stressed. 

Focus on positive self-talks. Be personal and be honest open and frank, understand what it is what we want to achieve. We mustn’t be too harsh on ourselves or judge ourselves to harshly. If we fail, we must readjust our goals.

How do we control our stress levels? We must decide motivates us, and set goals. We must not be too harsh on ourselves. Failure in one thing eg grade 12 doesn’t mean you yourself are a failure – it means you didn’t prepare adequately or didn’t have adequate support. That process didn’t work for you. In having positive self-talk, you need to say things like: “I have an end goal I am motivated to achieve and I am going to achieve”. Set yourself some motivation and be clear about what it is you want to achieve. 

What are some unique and basic study tips?

Students: Have a routine – this is something you must do daily. Very important. 

Use the breathing technique (to control anxiety). If you are feeling highly stressed take 6 or 7 deep breaths for 5 or 6 seconds, in and then out, to stabilise your cortisol levels. 

Cut out distractions e.g. social media.

Take regular breaks, go for walks once a day to get your heart rate up. 

Talk about your stress and anxiety with those around you

Getting enough sleep cannot be overemphasised. Do not cram through the night the night before. Do not put yourself in an utter exhaustive state. You will hit a blank during your exam.

Prepare adequately

Have a positive self-talk

Parents – be supportive, lead by example, set routine. Have your own routine and a family routine. 

Keep in mind that even if the students fail, they will have other opportunities, make sure not to criticise them. Life is hard, we need to be able to fail and get up again.

Make sure students have structure, get enough sleep, eat high protein food, and minimise screen time. Create a balanced and supportive environment. Motivate them and make them feel safe and secure.”
