SAQA Bulletin: Volume 19 Number 1: March 2020

Date

This issue of the bulletin engages inclusivity in learning-and-work pathways. The papers explore four topics under the theme of inclusivity.  Firstly, the bulletin observes higher education in South Africa looking into elements of RPL such as its history and challenges as a form of access to university study.  In addition to that, it analyses the implementation of RPL as an answer to individuals seeking lifelong learning in South Africa. Secondly, inclusivity is studied within learning, work, and professionalization in South Africa. Here the paper observes the practicality of RPL in specific work industries. In the third analysis, the inquiry then shifts to adult learning, skills development and having workers’ education accredited in South Africa. Lastly, the bulletin reaches to international perspectives where other initiatives that enhance inclusivity are offered as examples from which further learning and development of inclusivity can occur.
