INTERESTED IN STUDYING IN THE UNITED STATES? APPLY FOR THE FULBRIGHT FOREIGN STUDENT PROGRAM

 

The U.S. Mission to South Africa is pleased to announce the application period is now open for the Fulbright Foreign Student Program for 2019-2020.  This world-renowned program offers scholarships that cover up to the full cost of tuition and living expenses in the United States for South African students interested in pursuing a Master’s or Doctoral degree at any accredited institution in the United States.

The Fulbright Program is the U.S. Government’s flagship international educational exchange.  It was established in 1946 to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and other countries.  It currently operates in South Africa and more than 150 countries worldwide.

Applications close April 22, 2018, but applicants are encouraged to start the application process as soon as possible.  Highly-motivated South African students wishing to pursue a Master’s degree must have completed a four-year B-Tech degree or a three-year Bachelor’s degree with an Honors degree.  Prospective Doctoral students must have successfully obtained a Master’s degree.

The U.S. Mission is honored to partner with the National Research Foundation to co-fund Fulbright Fellows to complete Doctoral degrees in the United States.  This supports the synergies between the National Development Plan and the South African Department of Higher Education’s New Generation of Academics Program.

U.S. Chargé d’Affaires Jessye Lapenn said, “The Fulbright Program attracts the brightest academic talent from around the world.  I encourage South Africans who are dedicated to leadership, collaboration, and innovation in their fields to apply.  This can be a life-changing experience that will have a profound influence on your professional and personal endeavors for years to come.  The United States welcomes you!”

In 1953, the first South African to participate in the Fulbright Program was Professor Stefans Grové from the University of Pretoria, who completed a Master’s degree in musicology at Harvard.  To date, more than 2,000 South Africans have received Fulbright scholarships to pursue degrees in the United States.  South African Fulbright alumni come from diverse backgrounds, and include Professor Es’kia Mphahlele, Dr. Yvonne Muthien, Dr. Sibusiso Sibisi, and Judge Mandisa Maya.

The United States welcomes more than one million foreign students each year at more than 4500 institutions of higher education.  South Africans interested in applying for the Fulbright Program can learn more by visiting the U.S. Embassy website

South Africa Has A Plan For Jobs

Wed, 02/21/2018 - 11:12

President Cyril Ramaphosa says government has a national plan to create jobs and make a dent on poverty and inequality. 

South Africa Has A Plan For Jobs

In response to the debate on his State of the Nation Address (SONA), the President said while he has announced plans to convene a jobs and an investment summit, South Africa has the National Development Plan (NDP), which puts the country on a path to prosperity. 

The NDP, launched in 2012, is a detailed blueprint for how the country can eliminate poverty and reduce inequality by the year 2030. 

“Some of you [MPs] have said, ‘President, you come before us and you don’t have a plan. You come before us and you are calling for summits and conferences and so forth’. Yes, you are right but we have a plan. I have a plan – the National Development Plan. That is our plan,” the President said to loud applause from MPs. 

The President said he had decided to convene a summit to heed a call from the working class, who have for a long time called for a jobs summit to address unemployment in the country. 

“I come before you calling for summits, calling for all those consultative processes because our people want to be involved. They want to participate. Throughout our history, we have used collaboration and partnership to overcome the greatest of difficulties and resolve the most intractable of problems.” 

The President said at the centre of government’s approach to improving the lives of all citizens is the Madiba way of getting people involved in changing their lives for the better and making them, as Madiba urged, ‘their own liberators’. 

“It is our intention, through initiatives like the Jobs Summit, which by the way has been called for by the trade union movement in our country. 

“The federations that represent the working class in our country are the ones who have said they want a jobs summit because they want to sit down with government, with communities and … (other) workers to chart the way forward on how we can create jobs. 

“A clever government will heed that call and say, ‘yes, that is what we want to do.

Yes, we want a Social Sector Summit as well to bring together all our people who have the skills, insights, experiences and capabilities of all South Africans to address critical challenges in our society’.” 

The President said government wants to invite all South Africans to participate, to lend a hand. 

“This we have to do because our people want to be involved. They say, ‘Nothing about us without us’.” 

Meanwhile, the President said come the day of the Investment Summit, he would like to see the best companies in the country, the best companies on the continent, as well as the best companies in the world get together and make commitments on investments that are going to create jobs for all South Africans. 

Presidents meets budding entrepreneurs during his early morning walk 

Leading up to Tuesday afternoon’s address to the House, the President said he met a lady from Gugulethu, who runs a bag making business. He said someone like her was a perfect fit to receive the necessary assistance in order to be transformed into a black industrialist. 

“The need for government to support entrepreneurs has emerged as a recurring theme in the broader debate on SONA. 

“I walked with several people in Gugulethu and Athlone, I met a woman called Thulake, who runs a bag making business.

“She started her business with a partner in Gugulethu with R3 000. 

“Today, it’s got a net asset value of R700 000. She needs to have a factory and looks to her government to build the infrastructure that can make her business grow,” he said.

How Do I Become A Traffic Officer

Here are some frequently asked questions (and answers) to assist you to decide on traffic as your future career.

How do I become a Traffic Officer

1. WHY IS THE CAREER OF A TRAFFIC OFFICER SO IMPORTANT?

Traffic officers enforce the road rules and signs.

They ensure a safe passage in traffic and that all road users - including pedestrians - use our roads in an orderly and safe manner.

The main purpose of traffic officers is to ensure the safe and free flow of traffic to prevent road crashes and deaths on our roads.

2. WHAT DOES ONE DO IN THIS CAREER?

A distinction is made between provincial traffic officers and municipal traffic officers. Provincial traffic officers perform their duties within the boundaries of provinces, while municipal traffic officers perform theirs within the boundaries of municipalities.

Provincial traffic officers are also known as provincial inspectors.

They enforce compliance of the National Road Traffic Act, National Land Transport Act and Administrative Adjudication of Road Traffic Offences Act.

They control traffic, inspect vehicles for roadworthiness, and enforce road traffic signs and the rules of the road.

3. WHAT WILL THE WORKPLACE BE LIKE?

Provincial inspectors and traffic officers spend most of their working hours outdoors on the road.

A small portion of their time is spent in courtrooms and offices doing administrative duties.

They do their patrol duties mainly in motorcars, although some of their duties are performed on motorcycles or on foot.

4. WHAT INSTRUMENTS, TOOLS OR MATERIALS WILL ONE WORK WITH?

Traffic officers are responsible for law enforcement.

They will be working with a speed-measuring apparatus, an alcohol test apparatus, measuring tapes, mass-measuring apparatus, a summons book, infringement notices, etc.

5. WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES AND DRAWBACKS OF THIS CAREER?

Advantages: Working with people and helping them to obey traffic rules, assisting to reduce the number of road crashes and thus saving lives.

Drawbacks: The need to be able to work with people with difficult personalities, having to work during holidays and on weekends, and performing duties in all different weather conditions.

6. HOW DO I BECOME A TRAFFIC OFFICER?

You will first need to be employed by provincial government, a municipality or a government entity such as the Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC) or the Cross Border Road Transport Agency.

Vacant posts are advertised by these authorities in the open media.

You will therefore need to constantly check your local or national newspapers.

You may also contact any local or provincial authority directly to enquire as to whether vacancies exist within the departments and when the relevant posts will be advertised.

7. WHAT ARE THE MINIMUM REQUIRE­MENTS TO BECOME A TRAFFIC OFFICER?

· South African citizenship;
· Grade 12 or equivalent;
· No criminal record;
· Code B driving Licence ( manual transmission);
· Medical certificate - that a person may do strenuous exercises; and

· Applicants shall not be older than 35 years of age.

Government Supports Youth Development Opportunities

Mon, 02/19/2018 - 08:06

Government is committed to supporting the various skills and training opportunities offered by the Department of Defence for young people, says President Cyril Ramaphosa.

Government Supports Youth Development Opportunities

 

He said government is committed to supporting these initiatives as part of strategies to absorb young people into training and employment opportunities.

Addressing the South African National Defence Force (SANDF) Inter-Faith Service at the Mittah Seperepere Convention Centre in Kimberley, in the Northern Cape, President Ramaphosa applauded the Department of Defence for actively promoting the Defence Force as a career of choice.

The Armed Forces Inter-Faith service is hosted by the SANDF as part of the build-up to the official commemoration of Armed Forces Day which commemorates the sinking of the SS Mendi in 1917.

A large number of soldiers lost their lives in the tragedy.

President Ramaphosa said Armed Forces Day, held on 21 February, has become a day that allows the country to remember all the men and women who paid the ultimate price in defence of freedom, peace, and justice.

“It is a day that reminds us that blood was spilled by countless South Africans and freedom fighters to guarantee us our freedom and human rights.

“It is a reminder that brave men and women continue to put their lives on the line to secure and hard-won freedoms and defend our Constitution,” he said.

President Ramaphosa said this year’s celebrations carry a profound and special meaning for the nation as they occur in a year when South Africa commemorates the centenary birthday of the first Commander in Chief, former President Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela.

“They occur at a time where our defence force has once again confirmed the depth of the roots of our democracy and the flourishing of Constitutional order.

“It is this SANDF – the people’s National Defence Force – that our founding father, President Nelson Mandela envisaged as a non-partisan unifier and defender of all South Africans,” he said.

Former President Mandela moulded the SANDF into a law-abiding institution that upholds the Constitution of the Republic in defence of its people.
