Department of Basic Education receives international literacy award
12 September 2016
“Congratulations to the Department of Basic Education for winning the 2016 UNESCO Confucius Prize for Literacy Award for the Kha Ri Gude Mass Literacy Campaign,” says SAQA CEO Mr Joe Samuels.
Kha Ri Gude, Tshivenda for ‘let us learn’, is a campaign aimed at enabling adults to become literate.
“This UNESCO award is also special to SAQA as we developed a quality assurance model for the campaign and quality assured it,” added Mr Samuels.
The quality assurance model was used to:
Verify the number of learners in the system;
Look at the implementation of the project by means of an appropriate portfolio of evidence;
Look at assessment instruments used and how they have been implemented; and
Record the outcome of the learners on the National Learners’ Records Database based on a sample.
