The school education policy for South Africa is determined by the Department of Basic Education (DBE). The current policy for learning and teaching in South African schools is embodied in the National Curriculum Statement (NCS) Grades R – 12.
The Curriculum and Assessment Policy Statements (CAPS) is the current curriculum implemented in South Africa. CAPS replaced Outcomes Based Education (OBE) and has been implemented between 2012 and 2014. According to the DBE, CAPS is not an entirely new curriculum, but an amendment to the National Curriculum Statement (NCS). CAPS is written to follow content format rather than outcomes format of the former OBE method of teaching. It means there is now one single comprehensive National Curriculum and Assessment Policy for each subject.
CAPS determines the requirements and standards for the National Senior Certificate (NSC). This is the official name of the South African matriculation (Grade 12) examination. The NSC was previously known as the Further Education and Training Certificate (FETC). The NSC is accredited, moderated and overseen by Umalusi, the Council for Quality Assurance in General and Further Education and Training, to ensure quality standards are adhered to. South African matriculants therefore write an NSC examination set by the DBE to obtain their National Senior Certificate.
Today’s educational environment and current curriculum can be challenging for learners. The implementation of the National Curriculum Statement Grades R – 12 since 2012 contributed to a number of new impediments to overcome. Despite the lessening of administrative load on teachers and detailed guidance on what should be taught in the classroom, changes are always met with some degree of uncertainty. Parents aren’t always familiar with the topics covered and the desired outcomes that are expected of their child.
It is our goal at ASP School Projects to ensure that learners are comfortable with the current education system. Our study materials and methodology are developed by our team of experts in a way that will ensure readiness for exams and produce effective results. We base our educational study materials on CAPS. The topics covered follow the same format and order as outlined by the curricula. Our study materials are compiled from various sources, including textbooks from leading publishers. Learners can expect from our exemplar practice papers the same type of questions that are asked in the exams required by the curriculum.
