Last Week, 130 Students of the North West University graduated in Namibia. The students who are full-time teachers enrolled for the NWU's Educator programmes, received their Advanced Certificates in Education (ACE) and BEd Hons (NQF Level 7) qualifications respectively.
Since 1998, the North-West University (NWU) has been a partner involved in supporting Namibian teachers to upgrade their education qualifications. NWU is an internationally registered dual medium institution. Its qualifications are internationally recognised. All educator programmes that are being offered in southern Africa are accredited through the Council for Higher Education (CHE) and the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA). The programmes NWU are currently offering in Namibia are also acknowledged by the Namibian Qualifications Authority (NQA).
In Namibia, learning and further studies are complicated due to inaccessibility yo venues, cost of transport and loss of study material. The NWU's partnership with Namibian based Business School of Excellence (BSE) ensures that these local problems are addressed and that students receive the desired service delivery. BSE offers a full spectrum of services to students (teachers) enrolling for the NWU programmes, including supplying information to the student, registering the student, providing all study material and books at locations conveniently situated for the student, and supporting the student fully during his/her studies.
The NWU Educator students graduated last week in Ongwediva and Windhoek.
