Boshoff, Dr WJ to ask the Minister of Higher Education, Science and Technology

1. Whether he has been informed that the Square Kilometre Array South Africa advertised that it would be hosting monthly meetings with affected communities, but in fact failed to attend the meeting as advertised for 18 September from 17h00 to 19h00 in the Kareeberg Library, Carnarvon; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what was the reason for their nonattendance; 2.

(1) Whether he received an invitation from the Solidarity Movement to discuss their activities in the sphere of higher education and vocational training with him; if so, 2) Whether he is prepared to meet them on the matter; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details; (3) Whether, with reference to his statement on 23 September 2019, (details furnished), he has found that the use of Afrikaans as a medium of instruction is a transgression of the Bill of Rights; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details; (4) Whether he will make a statement on the matter?

Reply:

  1. A letter dated 27 September 2019 was received from Solidarity requesting a meeting to discuss matters relating to the Sol-Tech College.
  2. I am looking forward to meeting and engaging with them and any other institution on matters relating to higher education and training.

I welcome the explanation and clarity provided in their letter that Sol-Tech as a private college is fully committed to the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa and all legislative frameworks pertaining to education and training in the country, and as such, rejects all forms of discrimination based on race. My Ministry will engage with them further as we have an obligation to make sure that no South African is denied access to any educational institution in the country based on race, language or culture.

3. The Department acknowledges and upholds Afrikaans as one of the 11 official languages of the Republic of South Africa, which is duly protected by the Constitution. However, any form of discrimination or exclusionary practice based on language will not be tolerated as it goes against the spirit of the Constitution and the imperatives of social cohesion and nation building.

4. The Department’s position is very clear and consistent over the years that in post-apartheid South Africa we will no longer have exclusive Afrikaans, Zulu or Xhosa institutions, but rather institutions, which are open to all South Africans that upholds the values of our Constitution.

(1) Whether it is Government’s policy to permit one university campus to be predominantly Afrikaans speaking; if not, why not; (2) Whether he will make a statement on the matter?

Reply:

  1. All South African universities are currently public higher education instiutions. Public higher education institutions must be accessible to a wide range of diverse students. Within the South African context universities have developed language policies, in line with the Policy on Languages in Higher Education, and have moved away from Afrikaans only language institutions/ campuses toward utilising English as the main language of instruction, and at the same time fostering multilingual environments that include a range of other languages, in terms of, for example, campus signage, social usage and formal usage at university arranged events. This move has been tested in the consitutional court and has been found to be in line with the Constitution. Government supports these language policy movements, however it does not set the policy at the institutional level. An institution may implement a language policy that allows for dual mediums of instruction in terms of the policy. However, they may not implement policy that results in language being a barrier to access and success for students.

Private higher education institutions must also uphold the constitution and implement language policies that do not act as barriers to access and success.

2. No, the Minister will not be making a statement on this matter.

(1)Whether there has been any substantive progress with regard to the restoration of stability in the management of the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) (details furnished); if so, (2) whether the persons who are found to have caused the degeneration of NSFAS will face legal consequences; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

1. Significant changes and improvements have been undertaken by the Administrator in keeping to the gazetted terms of reference of the administration period up to August 2019. This has resulted in a more stable 2019 student funding cycle in the sector.

This can be seen most clearly in the improvements in the disbursement of student allowances in 2019, resulting in significantly less disruption to the academic programme than what occurred in 2018, where students were confirmed late in the academic year and received allowances late. In 2019, the majority of students where funding was confirmed, registration took place, and students signed their bursary agreements, received their allowances early in the academic year.

Data exchange between institutions and NSFAS has significantly improved and resulted in a smoother funding cycle, and many errors from the 2017 and 2018 academic years have been corrected. This has a direct effect on students receiving funding at the appropriate time. Appeals are being processed efficiently and data exceptions have been reduced significantly.

There have also been improvements regarding the support provided to institutions by NSFAS to resolve problems timeously, including more direct support to Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges. Compliance with bursary rules has improved and this has resulted in low error numbers and outstanding or incorrect payments.

As reported in Parliament on 28 August 2019, NSFAS, while under Administration has paid significant attention to issues of organisational governance and management, including identifying high-risk areas in the business processes of NSFAS. This has included significant attention to areas of information technology (IT), governance and risk, and the management of data at the entity. Controls that are more effective have been put in place to ensure effective management and administration of IT systems.

Issues of data integrity and cyber security were identified as critical areas of work, and many challenges remain within the entity that are being addressed. Challenges with the IT systems, which regularly crashed in 2018 were urgently addressed, and IT operational systems are currently operating at 98% uptime, in contrast to daily system crashes in 2018. Disbursements are processed more effectively in 2019 on a monthly rather than a daily basis.

NSFAS has undertaken a number of forensic investigations to uncover and act in areas of fraud and maladministration. An overview of this work has been presented to Parliament and the work continues.

NSFAS has opened the 2020 applications cycle at the beginning of September 2019.

The new Administration term, together with new Terms of Reference, have been published in the Government Gazette. This is to allow for continued work to improve the operations of the entity. The Administrator and his team will also work closely with the Ministerial team that will be appointed soon to conduct a review of NSFAS business processes with a view to making decisions about NSFAS going forward.

NSFAS has a critical mandate to support funding for students from poor and working-class backgrounds in the university and TVET college sectors, and a more efficient and effective NSFAS is an absolute priority of the Administrator, supported by the Department of Higher Education and Training, and the Minister of Higher Education, Science and Technology.

2. Those who are found responsible for wrongdoing at NSFAS will face consequences. The Administrator reported in Parliament on 28 August 2019 on a number of forensic investigations underway at the entity. In some cases, disciplinary processes have already been initiated where evidence is available. In other cases, investigations are continuing. NSFAS will work with the necessary authorities, where necessary, to lay charges in cases where evidence of illegal activity is uncovered.

What legal interventions have been made in the cases of maladministration, unethical and self-enriching practices which found expression in the governance of institutions of higher learning from the University of Venda to the University of Fort Hare, where there are unfinished infrastructure development projects and institutions are under administration?

Reply:

In terms of the Higher Education Act, if the Minister has reasonable grounds to believe that the council or the management of a public higher education institution is involved in financial impropriety or the institution is being otherwise mismanaged, the Minister may issue a directive which must state the nature and extent of the deficiency; the negative impact of the deficiency on the institution; the steps which should be taken to remedy the situation; and a reasonable period within which the steps must be taken. In the event that the Minister has reasonable grounds to believe that the council has failed to comply with the directive, the Minister may, depending on the circumstances, appoint an independent assessor, appoint an administrator, or take any other appropriate action allowed by this Act or any other law.

The Minister may appoint an independent assessor if circumstances arise at an institution that involve financial or other maladministration of a serious nature; or seriously undermine the effective functioning of the institution. In the case where an audit of the financial records of an institution or the report by an independent assessor or any other report or information reveals financial or other maladministration of a serious nature or serious undermining of the effective functioning of a public higher education institution, the Minister may appoint an administrator.

There are two universities under administration currently, namely the University of Fort Hare (UFH) and Vaal University of Technology (VUT). Under normal circumstances, an independent assessor would be appointed first to investigate the affairs of a university and advise the Minister on the source and nature of problems facing the institution and the measures required to restore good governance and management at the university. At the recommendation of the independent assessor, the Minister would then appoint an Administrator. However, the circumstances surrounding these institutions were such that the appointment of an Administrator preceded an independent assessment in the case of UFH, and for VUT before the independent assessment could be concluded.

Institutions with unfinished infrastructure development projects

There are two institutions with abandoned infrastructure development projects, namely the University of Venda (UNIVEN) and the University of Fort Hare (UFH).

In the case of UNIVEN, the existing abandoned infrastructure projects are as a result of insufficient funds to finalise construction or appointed service providers failing to deliver in terms of the contractual agreement. When the matter was brought to the Minister’s attention, the Minister issued a directive to the Council to discontinue any new infrastructure development plans. The Department also conducted an institutional oversight visit to understand the infrastructure challenges facing the University. Furthermore, an in-depth analysis of the implementation and management of the Recovery Projects at UNIVEN was done to assist the University going forward. During the last quarter of 2017, contractors were invited, through an open tender process, to complete some of the abandoned projects. An additional amount of R55 million has been allocated to the University to complete some of the critical projects, and the University was instructed to seek additional funds from other sources to complete other projects. The University has since put stringent measures in place to ensure the completion of these projects, and the Department is monitoring the University closely.

With regards to UFH, the abandoned project is the Early Childhood Development Centre (ECDC) building on the East London Campus. This has been due to maladministration to some extent, but also lack of capacity to manage and implement infrastructure projects. The Department has supported the University to develop an infrastructure procurement strategy to ensure the commencement of the implementation of the abandoned ECDC project and is also monitoring the university closely.

2. SETAs’ spending on catering is guided by the National Treasury Instruction 02 of 2016/17 on cost containment measures. The instruction stipulates that public entities may not incur catering expenses for internal meetings, unless approved otherwise by the relevant Accounting Officer or Accounting Authority. This excludes meetings held with employees of the same institution coming from other areas other than where the meeting is held. The public entity may incur catering expenses for official engagements that lasts for five (5) continuous hours or more, including the hosting of conferences, workshops, indabas, forums, recruitment interviews, training sessions or hearings, meetings relating to commissions or commissions of inquiry, and meetings hosted by the Accounting Officer or Accounting Authority including governance committee meetings.

(1)Why did the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) decide to stop providing book vouchers and award cash grants for books to each student; (2) (a) what is the monetary value of the book grant received by each student for the 2019 academic year and (b) how was this amount calculated; (3) whether NSFAS has put any mechanisms in place to monitor that the cash grants are used for its designated purpose of purchasing books; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details; (4) what is the position of NSFAS on the possibility that students are purchasing pirated or illegally photocopied books instead of legally published books?

Reply:

1. The learning materials allowance is only available to DHET bursary students at universities. NSFAS stopped book vouchers for a number of reasons:

  • Students have been the target of voucher scams on various campuses;
  • There were many commercial interests involved, with merchants providing services to students using vouchers for a fee;
  • Students were trading the book vouchers for cash outside many shops;
  • The voucher system was limited to selected merchants that monopolised the student market;
  • There was no space for students to choose where to purchase books, including from second-hand retailers; and
  • The book allowance was changed to a learning materials allowance so that students can also decide to purchase other learning support materials, including laptops and tablets.

In addition, the call to change book vouchers to cash was one of the many demands by the student leadership, as part of their input into the policy governing student funding.

2. (a) R5 000 is the monetary value of the learning materials allowance received by each full time NSFAS student on the new DHET bursary scheme for the 2019 academic year.

(b) The learning materials allowance is set by the Department in the annual guidelines and is based on an affordable and fair standardised amount.

3. NSFAS has no mechanism to monitor the spending of cash allowances by students. NSFAS believes that students should be treated as adults and have the financial freedom to withdraw the cash voucher and make an informed decision on how best to utilise the funds. The ultimate responsibility is in the hands of the students. In the process, NSFAS expects students to grow to be responsible citizens and take charge of their economic freedom.

There is a concern that book sales have declined with the change in the policy. NSFAS and the Department believe that it is necessary to conduct proper research to explore the patterns of textbook usage and buying amongst students, and will engage with the university sector on this matter.

4. Research is necessary to determine whether this is indeed happening and what the patterns of student behaviour are in this area. NSFAS funding is provided to support student success and NSFAS students have to meet academic criteria set by institutions. There are many factors that play a role in student success, and access to learning materials and other financial support are part of these factors.

(1)Whether his department has any plans in place to retain the services and skills of academics, including academics who have reached retirement age, for the benefit of the Republic in general and for their specialist academic fields in particular; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details; (2) whether he will make a statement on the matter?

Reply:

1. The appointment and retention of personnel at universities is the responsibility of each institution.

The majority of universities have a normal retirement age of 65. Most of these also allow post retirement employment for a further 3 years (some contract, and some deferred retirement) in selected cases where the expertise is required and under specific conditions. This post retirement employment is specifically allowed to enable the retention of scarce and critical skills.

However, retaining critical and scarce skills post-retirement age is not a long-term sustainable solution, and efforts have to be made to strengthen the academic staff pipeline to ensure that there are academics who can competently replace those who retire.

The Department of Higher Education and Training is implementing the Staffing South Africa’s Universities’ Framework (SSAUF) as part of its comprehensive University Capacity Development Programme. The SSAUF is intended to support universities to recruit, develop and retain academic staff. A number of key programmes are being implemented:

  • The New Generation of Academics Programme (nGAP) supports universities to appoint and develop new academics in areas of need, including in critical and scarce skills areas. 473 Posts have already been allocated, and going forward, 100 new posts will be allocated every year.
  • The University Staff Doctoral Programme (USD) supports existing academics to achieve doctoral degrees so that they can progress more rapidly along the research and teaching career trajectory. The programme was initiated in 2018, and approximately 200 academics are currently being supported, with a further 60 to be recruited this year.
  • The Future Professors Programme supports promising academics who have shown academic and research leadership potential to participate in a two-year development programme that will enable them to apply for professor positions. The first phase of the programme will recruit three cohorts of 28 academics over three years, with the first cohort being recruited in 2019.
  • The Supplementary Staff Programme enables the recruitment of skilled retired academics to support the implementation of the other SSAUF programmes and other staff development initiatives. These skilled academics are utilised for example, as mentors, or to replace nGAP and USDP scholars when they undertake mobility opportunities away from the university as part of their development programmes.

The Department intends upscaling these programmes as funding becomes available.

2. The Minister has already communicated to the sector on the need to retain critical and scarce skills whilst new capacity is being developed.

Boshoff, Dr WJ to ask the Minister of Higher Education, Science and Technology

Whether he has been informed of the socio-economic and environmental implications of the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) project; if not, why not; if so, what (a) steps has he taken to address the negative impact of the withdrawal of an estimated 16 000 ewes from production, (b) investment has been made by both the Government and SKA South Africa to minimize the resultant loss of permanent jobs in the local meat production and processing industry, as well as other supporting businesses and (c) measures are being taken to ensure the survival of affected species that have been dependent on watering points previously provided and maintained by farmers on the land currently occupied by the SKA project; 2. Whether he will make a statement on the matter?

Reply:

1. The Minister has been briefed about the SKA project.

a) Impact studies have been conducted for all phases of the project. A Strategic Environmental Impact (SEI) assessment of the area was conducted in 2015/16 for SKA Phase 1. This assessment encompassed various specialist studies that included a socio-economic assessment, an agricultural economic assessment, and several environmental assessments, these studies were all incorporated into the Environmental Management Plan (EMP) for the project. These documents are publicly available on the CSIR and NRF websites. The EMP that was composed as a result of the SEI assessment was signed by the Minister of Environmental Affairs and gazetted on 22 March 2019. The South African Radio Astronomy Observatory (SARAO) collaborates with organised agriculture to ensure that steps taken to counteract any negative impact that the project activities may have on farming activities are supported by the farming community. In addition, the project representatives interact with national, provincial, and local farming unions, as well as with individual farmers. Through this process of consultation and interactions, three projects have been identified that would ensure that the impact of livestock withdrawn from production would be mitigated and that possible negative effects are alleviated. It is standard practice that SARAO also review and consider any other suggestions and/or proposals from organised agriculture on sustainable initiatives to support agriculture in the area.

b) Several approaches have been adopted, in collaboration with different government departments and universities, to circumvent the impact on the meat processing industry by creating solutions to improve on environmental sustainability and creating new jobs. Two projects aimed at improving the overall sustainability of the red meat industry are being implemented. SARAO is collaborating with the Williston Cooperative to establish a feedlot that will contribute to sustainable supply of sheep to the local abattoir. The feedlot was constructed at a cost of R3.5 million, of which R2.4 million was financed by SARAO, and it now contains 3 300 sheep. This project created 4 new jobs but also ensured the sustainability of jobs by providing a consistent supply of livestock to the abattoir. As a result of this initiative, the Northern Cape Department of Agriculture Rural Development and Land Reform has since joined the project and has committed to developing an offal processing plant in Williston, on land provided by the Karoo Hoogland Municipality. In addition to this, ten youth from the Williston area are in college for meat processing training as part of the National Rural Youth Service Corps programme. In addition, SARAO is also in negotiations with the Carnarvon Kaap Landbou Korporasie (KLK) Abattoir on the development of a project that could also contribute to sustainability of the local meat processing industry.

c) The land procured by SARAO will be declared a national park and this process is underway. When this process is completed, SANPARKS will manage the surface water on the reserve. However, since the process has not yet concluded, a local farmer from Carnarvon was appointed four months ago, to ensure that all water pumps on the SKA land are operational and to monitor the water level of the surface dams. SARAO also supports the studies by the University of Cape Town on small mammal and predator that could assist the industry with the management of Jackal and Caracal, territorial wild animals that predominantly hunt livestock in the area with the ultimate objective of increasing livestock yields. In addition, Rhodes University and SANPARKS are collaborating with farmers on the management of Prosopus and other invasive species in the area that are responsible for depleting the underground water supply. These aspects will later be managed by SANParks and the studies will assist in optimizing farming activities in the area.

2. The Minister will not be making a statement on this issue, the Department and the NRF have put in place a communications strategy that keeps the public informed about developments in the SKA project.

(1)Whether his department can extend the same financial research benefits currently provided to universities to the Iziko Museums of South Africa as a result of their employees' research output; (2) whether he will make a statement on the matter?

Reply:

1. The Research Outputs Policy published in the Government Gazette No 38552 (Notice 188) of 11 March 2015, through which university research outputs are evaluated and then funded, applies only to universities. This funding forms part of baseline subsidies provided to universities.

2. In 2013, the Department of Science and Technology (now the Department of Science and Innovation (DSI) published the Declaration of Research Institutions in the Government Gazette No. 36637 (Notice 46) which declares the research institutions that are eligible for research funding support by the National Research Foundation (NRF). According to the Declaration, the Iziko Museums of South Africa qualifies to receive research grants (for performing research).

(1)Whether his department has plans in place to help provide accommodation for the students in technical and vocational education and training colleges to deal with unhealthy and dangerous squatting which in most cases expose students to drug abuse and other related criminal elements; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details; (2) whether all accommodation of the deserving students will be paid for or subsidised by his department; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details of the roll-out plan?

Reply:

1. The development of decent, affordable student housing for universities and TVET colleges is a priority of government. The Student Housing Infrastructure Programme has been developed to accelerate the provision of 300 000 beds over 10 years, which includes
100 000 beds for TVET college students. A pilot project is currently underway at the King Hintsa TVET College with the Lephalale and Northlink TVET Colleges forming the next projects in the pipeline. A further six colleges will be selected for consideration during the course of this year.

The Department is also assisting TVET colleges with the repairs and maintenance of existing student accommodation through the College Capital Infrastructure Efficiency Grant.

The Department of Human Settlements, Water and Sanitation is also working towards supporting the development of student housing as part of their social housing developments.

2. Given the substantial increase in the bursary allocation from R2.437 billion in 2017 to R5.164 billion in 2018 and R6.517 billion in 2019 for the introduction of fee-free education, the Department is able to provide accommodation or travel allowances to qualifying TVET college students. In view of the increase in funding, the Department has standardised rates for allowances to ensure that TVET students’ basic needs are met to be successful in their studies.

NSFAS assesses the financial eligibility of all applicants while the colleges’ financial aid committee verifies the students’ supporting documents to make a determination on eligibility for either a travel or accommodation allowance. NSFAS pays out the allowances to students in accordance with the recommendation of the college financial aid committee, based on the College Bursary Rules and Guidelines developed by the Department of Higher Education and Training.

In 2018, approximately 115 000 students qualified for accommodation allowances.

Singh, Mr N to ask the Minister of Higher Education, Science and Technology

Whether he is aware of the current situation of distress at the Centre for Fine Art and Design [CFAD] in KwaZulu-Natal resulting from the Department of Higher Education’s refusal to re- accredit the CFAD; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what is he doing to expedite the institution’s re-accreditation given the current high standards and quality education produced by CFAD since its inception?

Reply:

On 27 June 2016, the Registrar of Private Higher Education Institutions cancelled the registration of the Centre for Fine Art and Design (CFAD) for its failure to submit a complete 2014 annual report, after a due legal process was followed requesting CFAD to submit its annual report. The submission of the annual report is a legal requirement for the maintenance of registration as a private higher education institution as it allows the Registrar to establish if the institution has discharged its responsibilities as a private higher education institution. Subsequently, on 15 September 2016, the appeal lodged by CFAD with the Minister of Higher Education and Training was successful.

For the second time, on 20 November 2016, the Registrar cancelled the registration of CFAD for its failure to submit its 2015 annual report, after a due legal process was followed requesting CFAD to submit its annual report. Subsequently, on 7 April 2017, the appeal lodged by CFAD with the Minister of Higher Education and Training was unsuccessful, for the following reasons:

  1. Failure to submit the institution’s administrative data;
  2. Failure to provide staff and student data;
  3. Failure to submit audited annual financial statements;
  4. Failure to submit the financial surety which had expired;
  5. Failure to comply with the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations;
  6. Failure to provide proof of certificates awarded to students;
  7. Failure to comply with the requirements of the National Learner’s Records Database;
  8. Failure to provide the updated record of the directors of the company as approved by the Consumer Intellectual Property Commission;
  9. Failure to submit the list of premises on which teaching and learning is provided; and
  10. Failure to submit the declaration signed by every student.

The Department received a request from parents to extend the phase-out period for CFAD to

31 December 2017 so that final year students would not be affected. At the time, the Department contacted Dr N Soobben, who is the owner and Principal, and requested him to make a formal request to the Director-General, for an extension of the phase-out period from 31 December 2016 to 31 December 2017, which he did and was approved by the Director- General.

The Department has visited the institution in August 2017, January 2018 and April 2018 to assist the institution. At the last site visit in April 2018, an improvement plan was requested from CFAD, which has not yet been submitted.

In an accreditation report dated 28 February 2017, the Council on Higher Education (CHE) withdrew the accreditation of the institution and its programme. The outcome on a subsequent application for accreditation with the CHE is pending. The application for re-registration submitted to the Department is awaiting proof of accreditation from CHE and the submission of an improvement plan as requested on 25 April 2018.

In 2018, the High Court in Durban acceded to CFAD’s request to operate in 2018 and 2019 to teach out its pipeline and final year students. The High Court also ruled that no new students should be enrolled.

CFAD has filed papers with the High Court in Durban to suspend the Registrar’s decision to cancel its registration and suspend the Minister of Higher Education and Training decision to dismiss the appeal. The Minister and Registrar are awaiting the ruling of the High Court.

What number of payments from the National Student Financial Aid Scheme have not been paid out at each campus as at 1 June 2019?

Reply:

The following response was received from the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS).

As at 20 June 2019 for the 2019 funding cycle, NSFAS had 565 011 students on record that met the eligible criteria for funding and for which NSFAS received registration data for approved courses. Funds have been disbursed to 536 848 students in the form of allowances, leaving 28 163 students still to be paid, i.e. 22 410 university students and 5 753 Technical and Vocational Education and Training college students.

University Sector

The affected students in the university sector have outstanding National Bursary Agreements (NBA) and disbursements can only be effected once students have signed their agreements. NSFAS is liaising with institutions to assist in:

  • ascertaining whether the student still requires funding or has received alternative funding support; and
  • if the student still requires funding, the institutions have been requested to assist in contacting the students to sign their NBA online.

Technical and Vocational Education and Training Sector

The affected students in the TVET sector is due to NSFAS Wallet payments not being effected successfully as the cell phone number provided during the registration period is incorrect or invalid. NSFAS is in the process of prioritising the resolution and payment of these allowances by ensuring that the correct contact number is available on the system by:

  • confirming if the correct cell phone number can be provided to the NSFAS Wallet team to utilise when creating NSFAS Wallet accounts; and
  • where no correct cell phone number can be found, the student is contacted to update the correct number online.

van der Westhuizen, Mr AP to ask the Minister of Higher Education and Training

(1)What number of meetings has the National Qualifications Forum held (a) in each of the past eight calendar years and (b) since 1 January 2019; (2) whether, with reference to her reply to question 2829 on 21 November 2018, she has found that the lack of activity of the National Qualifications Forum is a matter of concern since the National Qualifications Forum is deemed to be an important forum for her, the chairpersons and chief executive officers of the Quality Councils and the SA Quality Authority to raise issues with one another; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details; (3) what steps will be taken to ensure that the National Qualifications Forum fulfils its mandate in future as envisaged in the National Qualifications Framework Act, Act 67 of 2008, as amended?

Reply:

1. (a) The National Qualifications Framework (NQF) Forum held eight meetings in the past eight years.

(b) One NQF Stakeholders Forum meeting was held on 2 March 2019.

2. The NQF Forum is an important structure providing the Minister and Director-General with the opportunity to meet with the Chairpersons of the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) and Quality Councils to discuss important issues regarding the strategic direction of the NQF, as well as barriers and challenges experienced in the further development and implementation of the NQF. The NQF Forum promotes dialogue and creates a common understanding to ensure the efficient development and implementation of the NQF. I was concerned about the lack of activity of the NQF Forum and actioned the NQF Stakeholders Forum meeting on 2 March 2019 to identify critical issues and continue with the annual NQF Forum meetings.

The Chief Executive Committee is a permanent sub-committee of the NQF Forum and has met quarterly over the past years. It reports to the Minister, Director-General and NQF Forum.

3. The Director-General will ensure that the NQF Forum meetings are held. SAQA, as the secretariat of the NQF Forum is tasked to develop a schedule of meetings. Furthermore, Recommendation 4.3 of the Improvement Plan for the Evaluation of the Implementation of the NQF Act (Act No. 67 of 2008) compels the NQF Forum to schedule meetings in advance and the fulfilment of its mandate will be monitored through the Department of Higher Education and Training, and the Department of Performance Monitoring and Evaluation.

van der Westhuizen, Mr AP to ask the Minister of Higher Education and Training

(1)With reference to her media statement issued on 15 February 2019 in which she stated that the Student Housing Infrastructure Programme is working on a range of partnerships to provide an additional 100 000 beds for accommodation of students of public technical and vocational education and training colleges over the next 10 years, what (a) progress has already been achieved in this regard and (b) number of additional beds will be made available at each of our public technical and vocational education and training colleges; (2) will this eventually lead to a bigger intake of students at our public technical and vocational education and training colleges; if so, (a) what growth in numbers is to be expected, (b) when is it envisaged that this growth will happen, (c) what amount should be budgeted for the growth in infrastructure for teaching and learning and (d) how will this be funded?

Reply:

1. (a) The Department is implementing the Student Housing Infrastructure Programme, which aims to provide 100 000 new beds for the Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) college sector over ten years. Three pilot projects are currently underway, and the following progress has been reported:

  • The Department has allocated funds from the TVET College Infrastructure Grant to provide bulk services on the Teko Campus of the King Hintsa TVET College. The intention is that the college will construct student residences with 800 beds once the bulk services have been completed as part of a Public Private Partnership;
  • A student housing project with 1 200 beds is planned at the Lephalale TVET College in Limpopo. The feasibility study for the project is being funded by the Infrastructure Investment Programme of South Africa, a joint initiative to fund infrastructure projects by the South African government and European Union; and
  • The Northlink TVET College plans to develop 1 500 new beds on its Tygerberg Campus following the completion of its campus master plan, which is currently in progress.

(b) These three pilot projects aim to construct 3 500 new beds as part of the initial phase. Subsequent phases over the remaining ten year period will work towards achieving the target of constructing 100 000 new beds on various TVET college campuses.

2. The investments made in student accommodation are not expected to expand enrolments within the short to medium term.

What number of counsellors are employed at each institution of higher learning?

The Department does not collect information on the number of counsellors employed by institutions of higher learning. The Department has requested institutions to provide information on the number of counsellors employed at their various campus clinics/counselling centres. This will take some time to compile, and as soon as the data is available, the information will be provided.

Profile picture: Bozzoli, Prof B

Bozzoli, Prof B to ask the Minister of Higher Education and Training

(1)(a) Which public technical and vocational education and training colleges did not receive all the results of the November 2018 examinations from Umalusi during the bulk release of marks early in January 2019 and (b) what subjects were affected in each case; (2) (a) which results were still outstanding for each subject at each specified college as at 31 January 2019 and (b) what were the main reasons for the specified delays?

Reply:

1. All the centres that complied with the rules of examination as encapsulated in the policy on the conduct of examinations received their results on 31 December 2018. The tables attached as Annexure A provide the lists of subjects, and Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges that did not receive all their results from Umalusi for the November 2018 examinations during the bulk release of marks on
31 December 2018.

2. (a) Annexure A also provides the lists of outstanding results for each subject at each specified college as at 31 January 2019.

 (b) The bulk of the outstanding results were released on 04 February 2019, following the first mop-up process by the Department and Umalusi. The main reason for this delay was that TVET colleges had failed to submit their Internal Continuous Assessments (ICASS) and some of the external marks timeously, i.e. Report 190-N1, National Certificate (Vocational) levels 2 and 3. The Department has written warning letters to college Principals for not submitting their ICASS and the external marks on time. During May to June 2019, Departmental officials will be visiting non-compliant colleges to audit the control measures and systems related to the management of internal assessments.

Reply:

The first phase of training artisans involves an integrated learning process of obtaining fundamental and practical training at a Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) college. The second phase covers the trade theory including workplace training at an accredited workplace. The final phase is taking a National Trade Test in the relevant trade. The table below indicates the training that has taken place from 01 April 2018 to 31 December 2018:

Plumbers

Alberts, Mr ADW to ask the Minister of Higher Education and Training

(1)Whether, with reference to her reply to question 2633 on 17 October 2018, she is now in a position to indicate whether her department's higher education language policy, of which the concept was published in the Government Gazette of 23 February 2018, has already been finalised; if not, what (a) processes are still outstanding and (b) is the timeframe for finalisation; if so, by what date will it be published; (2) whether her department has received and considered the submissions of (a) the SA Academy for Science and Arts, (b) the Afrikaans Language Board and (c) Afriforum; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details in each case; (3) whether, if the specified policy has not yet been finalised, she will consider holding a symposium to fine-tune it; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details; (4) whether she has found that the policy is in compliance with her obligation under subsection 6(4) of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, 1996, to manage and monitor the use of the official languages by means of legislative and other measures, since subsection 27(2) of the Higher Education Act, Act 101 of 1997, has the above as underlying basis; (5) whether she will make a statement on the matter?

Reply:

1. The Department has not yet finalised the Language Policy for Higher Education, which was published in February 2018 for public comment.

(a) The Department has developed a further draft of the policy taking into consideration all the public comments received. The draft policy will be taken through the Socio-Economic Impact Assessment (SEIAS), which is a necessary process for all government policies, bills and regulations before approval for implementation. Parallel to the SEIAS process, a draft will be submitted to the Council on Higher Education (CHE) for advice, as required by the Higher Education Act (Act 101 of 1997, as amended). These two processes may invariably take about four months to complete (May-August 2019). Feedback from the abovementioned processes may lead to further amendments to the draft policy and will feed into the development of a final draft for publication and implementation.

(b) The policy will be finalised during 2019 once the above processes have been completed. It is envisaged that the policy will be implemented in 2020 when stakeholders, in particular the universities, have been taken through the revisions.

2. The Department received comments from a wide range of stakeholders. Submissions from all stakeholders have been considered taking into account the values of equity and the need to address the historical marginalisation of African languages as provided for in the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa (1996).

(a) The Department received a submission from the SA Academy for Arts and Science. The Academy welcomed the revised Language Policy for Higher Education and proposed that specific universities be assigned to develop indigenous South African languages. It called for research to be undertaken to establish guiding principles and procedures for the development of new terminology for African languages. Moreover, the Academy proposed that a core cohort of lecturers proficient in African languages be developed to ensure that there are lecturers who can teach in these languages.

(b) No submission was received from the Afrikaans Language Board.

(c) Afriforum welcomed the review of the policy and called for a funding allocation to be made in support of multilingualism at universities. It underscored the fundamental right of learners/students to receive education in their mother tongue or the language of their choice. It supported the proposed partnerships with the Department of Basic Education in promoting the development of all indigenous languages in South Africa. It further welcomed the explicit reference to Afrikaans as an indigenous South African language in the policy.

3. The Department has already held a number of symposiums and seminars on this matter and is not planning to hold any others before the policy is finalised. However, the Department will continue to engage with universities and other relevant bodies regarding the implementation of the policy once it has been published.

4. The revision of the Language Policy for Higher Education is being done in compliance with the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, 1996, and the Higher Education Act (Act 101 of 1997, as amended).

5. The Minister will communicate to all stakeholders once the policy has been published in the government gazette for implementation.

What amount does the Government spend on average (a) in respect of each student and (b) annually for students studying at (i) universities and (ii) technical vocational education and training colleges?

Reply:

(a) -(b)(i) The total state budget for university subsidies for the 2017 university academic year was R34.067 billion, as stated in table one of the annual Ministerial Statement on University Funding. This allocation was for 1 036 984 individual students. On average, government subsidised each university student with an amount of R32 852 in the 2017 academic year.

It is important to note that this amount does not include the funding provided by government through the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) to individual poor and working-class students to support them to pay university fees and their daily expenses while studying.

(ii) On average, government subsidised each student at a Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) college with an amount of R45 929 in the 2019 academic year based on a Full-Time Equivalent (FTE) basis. This amount is based on the 2019/20 available budget of R12.976 billion (80% State subsidy plus 20% NSFAS Tuition Bursaries, excluding any allowances) and the funded 282 526 FTE students for the 2019 academic year as contained in the TVET colleges’ enrolment plans.

(1)(a) What measures are being applied to calculate the (i) number of learners and (ii) cost-effectiveness of the community education and training (CET) college sector and (b) how do the various colleges rank in this respect; (2) for each CET college and for each level, what was the number of (a) subject entries, (b) learners who actually wrote external examinations and (c) learners that passed their external examinations or assessments in (i) 2016, (ii) 2017 and (iii) 2018?

Reply:

(1) The Community Education and Training (CET) colleges continue to be funded as they were before migration from the Provincial Education Departments. At the moment there are no measures applied to calculate both the number of students and cost allocation. The CET system continues to rely on headcount enrolments, as there has not been a determination of full-time equivalents. The Department is in the process of developing funding norms, which will inform the calculations, cost-effectiveness and the ranking colleges in terms of funding.

(2) Verified data for the 2018 exam cycle is not yet available.

It must be noted that the number of students “approved for funding” means provisionally funded. NSFAS is still waiting for registration data from colleges to confirm their final funding status. The upfront allowance was only paid to students whose registrations have been verified. Due to administrative difficulties experienced at colleges, some students were paid after 8 February 2019.

(1)With reference to her reply to question 3389 on 5 December 2018, on what date (a) was the responsibility for adult basic education transferred to her department, (b) date did the negotiations regarding the post-provisioning model for community education and training (CET) colleges commence and (c) on what date does she expect to issue the post-provisioning model for the CET colleges; (2) whether she has found that the (a) work on the finalisation of the post-provisioning model for CET colleges was approached with the necessary urgency and (b) delays of more than a year were unavoidable and in the best interests of the learners and the country; if so, how was the conclusion reached in each case?

Reply:

1. (a) The function of Adult Education and Training (AET) was transferred to the Department of Higher Education and Training on 1 April 2015.

(b) The Post Provisioning Norms Task Team was established in April 2016.

(c) The finalisation of the post-provisioning model is subject to an extensive consultative process with stakeholders and bargaining councils scheduled to be completed by 30 September 2019 for implementation on 1 April 2020.

2. (a) The work was approached with urgency as the Task Team was set up within a year of the function shift.

(b) Immediately after the function shift, the Department undertook a process of understanding the challenges within the Adult Education and Training system. The scope of work for the task team is extensive given that Provincial Education Departments had varied approaches to the following matters:

  • Application of the minimum requirements for appointment
  • Nature of appointment
  • Salaries and types of payment
  • Working Hours
  • Leave
  • Performance management
  • Allowances

Total number of beds completed

2 173

*Extension of various residences

Larger projects are at different phases of planning, procurement and construction. As part of the first phase, eight universities are embarking on large projects for which funding is being secured. These projects once finalised, will yield about 18 000 new beds over the next three years starting in 2019.

The Department’s Student Housing Infrastructure Programme (SHIP) aims to provide 300 000 new student beds, 200 000 at universities and 100 000 at TVET colleges over the next ten year period. More than R4.1 billion has been allocated from the Infrastructure and Efficiency Grant for university student housing for the period 2015/16 to 2020/21 and are mostly for equity in large projects (2000 beds) although some smaller projects have been funded (250 to 500 beds). At this stage no specific funding is available to TVET student housing within the baseline grant to colleges. Additional funds are in the process of being sourced for TVET Colleges.

(b) No new beds were constructed at Technical and Vocational Education and Training colleges during 2018.

(1)With reference to the reply to question 647 on 11 April 2018 regarding the Rules and Guidelines for the Administration and Management of the Department of Higher Education and Training’s Technical and Vocational Education and Training College Bursary Scheme, which was to be completed by no later than 30 September 2018, what led to the specified document only being released to technical and vocational education and training (TVET) colleges on 14 December 2018; (2) has she found that the late release and downward changes in amounts when comparing the specified document with an earlier draft that was circulated, created risks for the management of budgets and learner-relationships at our public TVET colleges; if so, what are the relevant details; (3) what new steps will her department introduce to prevent a re-occurrence of the continued late release of this important document to TVET colleges;

Reply:

1. The Department was exploring the possibility of converting the bursary tuition amount into a conditional grant to minimise the bursary administrative processes, which would have had an impact on the 2019 Bursary Rules and Guidelines. However, it was not possible to implement this for the 2019 academic year. In addition, the process of introducing standardised allowances for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges were also protracted.

2. The Department introduced a new category of allowance, i.e. a personal care allowance, for all bursary recipients to assist them with their necessities. The introduction of standardised allowances and a new category of allowance changed the amounts that were initially considered for travel and accommodation contained in the draft version that was sent out to colleges for their comments.

The Department, in collaboration with the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS), had numerous engagements with Principals and financial aid practitioners towards the end of 2018 and beginning of 2019 to prepare for the administration of bursaries. In addition to the ongoing engagements with colleges, the Department also issued Circulars to all colleges which set out the immediate and key steps that colleges had to follow to ensure a smooth 2019 bursary application process.

3. Preparing the draft guideline documents for my approval by June at the latest.

4. Engagements with college Principals and Student Representative Councils will start in June 2019 to finalise the 2020 Bursary Rules and Guidelines, which the Department aims to release early in October 2019. Concluding all of these activities timeously will allow colleges and students to focus on teaching and learning rather than on student financial aid matters.

What is the current backlog of (a) administration, (b) reconciliations and (c) payments related to the 2018 academic year that the National Student Financial Aid Scheme has to deal with before commencing with the 2019 academic year?

Reply:

The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) has provided the following information in response to the question.

The global picture for unresolved applications from 2017 and 2018 as at 14 February 2019 is
83 186. Of these, 19 113 relate to unsigned loan/bursary agreements. Without signed contracts, the NSFAS Act prevents payments to be made to the applicant or to the educational institution at which they are registered. The details of the students with unsigned contracts are sent regularly to their host institution for them to ensure that the contracts are signed. Once signed, fees and allowances can be paid immediately.

There are a further 64 073 outstanding cases where there are internal system issues that prevent final resolution. Of these, 54 807 (10 333 from 2017 and 44 474 from 2018) relate to changes in fees or allowances that, for a number of reasons, are rejected by the processing algorithm. The causes of these rejections have now been identified, and the algorithm is currently being updated to resolve the blockage. NSFAS has an internal target to complete this work by 22 February 2019. It is important to note that all these cases refer to students who have received allowances and fee payments based on the original figures submitted by the registering institution. The problems relate to subsequent changes due to a course or personal circumstance changes.

The remaining 9 266 cases relate to internal procedure issues that prevented individual student accounts to be generated. These issues have been identified and are being fixed. These will all be resolved by 22 February 2019.
