NWU Setswana and African Languages for Education Courses

NWU Setswana and African Languages for Education Courses

The Subject group offers five languages for Education – Setswana, Sesotho, Sepedi, isiZulu and isiXhosa – contact and distance learning. According to the North-West Provincial Language Act, Afrikaans, English, Setwana, Sesotho and isiZulu are the languages of the province. The fact that many prospective students who apply for various qualifications and practicing teachers choose to qualify and upgrade their professional qualifications with us, we saw it a need to extend the subject group by including Sepedi and isiZulu, especially for us to respond to the Minister of Education and Arts and Culture’s call to develop indigenous Languages.

The Subject group aspires to offer high quality innovative teaching and learning that is driven by self-directed learning, blended learning, and research that integrate the aspects of diversity, Ubuntu, and Indigenous Knowledge to the benefit of South African learners.
