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.

Matiase, Mr NS to ask the Minister of Higher Education and Training

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

Reply:

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.

(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.

Profile picture: Bozzoli, Dr B

Bozzoli, Dr 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.

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:

(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.

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.

(1)Whether, with reference to her reply to question 359 for oral reply on 21 November 2018, there are currently any plans in place to expand the curricula of the programmes on offer by technical and vocational education and training colleges; if not, why not; if so, (a) what are the details of the plans and (b) by what date will the new curricula be implemented; (2) (a) which public technical and vocational education and training colleges are currently offering Mechatronics, Information Technology and Computer Science and (b) what number of students have been enrolled at each level in these programmes in 2016, 2017 and 2018; (3) what are the reasons for the trends in student numbers in these programmes; (4) what are the admission criteria for these fields of study at public technical and vocational education and training colleges?

Reply:

1. (a) The Department has started with the expansion of curricula into occupational programmes in Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges. A Dual System Pilot Project (DSPP) is currently delivered in two trades qualifications. This followed the approval of a strategy in 2016 of a standardised approach to the implementation of South African Qualifications Authority registered occupational programmes in four colleges, aligned to the dual system model.

(b) The Department has already established twenty-six Centres of Specialisation in nineteen TVET colleges offering thirteen occupational qualifications, which includes the training of Bricklayers, Electricians, Millwrights Boilermakers, Fitters and Welders, amongst them. These occupational programmes are now on the register of nationally approved TVET programmes, which means they are funded through the conditional grant and will be offered from 2019 onwards. The expansion into occupational programmes will be phased in over the next five-years taking into consideration the infrastructure, plant, equipment and specialised human resources required to deliver these in colleges.

2. (a) Mechatronics is offered at seven TVET colleges namely, Buffalo City, Capricorn, Ekurhuleni West, False Bay, Gert Sibande, Port Elizabeth and Sedibeng. The Information Technology and Computer Science (IT&CS) programme are offered in thirty-three TVET colleges.

(b) The table below indicates the enrolments in the Mechatronics and Information Technology and Computer Science programmes from 2016 to 2018:

3. TVET colleges are expected to manage student enrolments in line with the available infrastructure and available funding, given the very high cost of delivering these programmes. Opportunities for Work Integrated Learning are also important considerations in determining student enrolment numbers. Colleges have also reported difficulty with recruitment and retention of staff in these programmes, given the demand for their skills in the private sector.

4. Minimum entrance requirements are aligned to the National Certificate Vocational
[NC(V)] policy whereby students can enrol in the NC(V) programmes having passed an NQF level 1 qualification, i.e. Grade 9, AET Level 4, successfully applied for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) or completed the Pre-Vocational Learning Programme (PLP). The minimum entry requirements should, therefore, be guided by and aligned to the NC(V) policy. However, TVET colleges are required to develop additional entrance requirements for students intending to enrol in specialised programmes, such as Mechatronics, where mathematics and physical science are key entry subjects.

The Department is in the process of drafting guidelines for Additional Admission Requirements to guide the colleges when formulating their guidelines for additional admission requirements. The recommended points system, which will attach weights to language, mathematics and science in those qualifications/vocational specialisations where these subjects serve as a pre-requisite. Colleges are however cautioned that the points system or additional criteria must not be set unrealistically high or be used as a tool to exclude prospective students from colleges.

(1)With reference to her reply to question 297 for oral reply on 21 November 2018, what number of the 614 candidates, who were allowed by the Institute for the National Development of Learnerships to undertake the trade tests after the implementation of the Artisan Recognition of Prior Learning programme in April 2018, have already completed their trade tests; (2) what number of the specified candidates (a) undertook and (b) passed their trade tests; (3) what advice would she give to those candidates that would like to qualify as artisans, but who were unable to progress to the trade test phase, after being provisionally assessed as not having the necessary skills to successfully complete the trade test?

Reply:

1. Of the 614 Artisan Recognition of Prior Learning (ARPL) candidates evaluated and granted access to a trade test, 514 candidates continued to register for a trade test at the Institute for the National Development of Learnerships, Employment Skills and Labour Assessments. (INDLELA). Once a candidate receives confirmation of access to a trade test, they may register to undertake a trade test at any accredited trade test centre in the country.

2. (a) Of the 514 candidates that registered for trade test at INDLELA, 460 candidates undertook and completed the trade test.

(b) 349 Candidates were found to be competent (75.9% pass rate) while 34 candidates’ results are pending subject to the verification of their trade test results. 77 Candidates were found to be not yet competent. 54 Candidates were absent on the day of the trade test.

3. The ARPL process is designed in such a way that it does not discourage candidates who are deemed not to be ready for a trade test. Instead, it seeks to evaluate and establish the levels of knowledge and skills which a candidate possesses. Where a knowledge and/or skills gap is identified, the candidate is supported through focused interventions to address the deficiencies identified, and when ready, is re-evaluated.

Candidates who are evaluated and are deemed not to be ready for a trade test are encouraged to stay within the ARPL system while being assisted in addressing identified knowledge and/or skills gaps, as the ARPL process is designed to promote lifelong learning.

(1)What is the reason that public technical and vocational education and training colleges that offer qualifications from Level 2 to 4 deny entry to learners who graduate at Level 2 from skills schools and who wish to improve their qualifications beyond this level; (2) whether her department will be exploring options for such learners to be able to improve their skills and formal qualifications at public institutions; if so, (a) what would be required of such an exploratory study and (b) by what date does she expect to report regarding her findings in this regard; (3) whether she will be engaging with both the Department of Basic Education and her department in order to create a learning pathway in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details; (4) what options are there currently for such learners to improve their formal qualifications on a full-time basis?

Reply:

1. Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges cannot deny access to students based on the fact that they come from skills schools. All students who apply to colleges must meet the institution’s admission criteria. Some applicants might not meet the academic criteria for their vocational or occupational programme of choice, because the skills schools are essentially special schools focussing on practical skills and do not offer NQF level 2 qualifications.

2. Where students do not meet the academic criteria, 45 TVET colleges will from
January 2019 offer the Pre-vocational Learning Programme (PLP), which is designed to strengthen the learning foundations of students who wish to study further in the vocational qualifications offered by the chosen college. This is a one-year programme comprising of Foundational Language, Foundational Mathematics, Foundational Science and Life Skills (which includes basic computer literacy). Such students may then ideally articulate into occupational qualifications offered at NQF levels 1 - 2, or even the National Certificate (Vocational) [NC(V)] if the learner is in a position to and wishes to pursue a broader vocational pathway.

(a) The Department is currently in the process of configuring the suite of programmes to be offered in the Community Education and Training (CET) colleges so that other options will be available to learners from skills schools. There are 25 skills schools in Gauteng and 22 in the Western Cape, while the other provinces have between 1 to 5 such schools. The Department will be requesting its Regional Managers to engage with Provincial Education Departments (PEDs) to link these schools to TVET and CET colleges so that opportunities for these students can be mapped out as a collaborative initiative.

9b) The process is in its early stages and therefore data cannot be provided at this stage.

3. Engagements with the Department of Basic Education are already underway on a number of programmes and qualifications affecting the two Departments. The overall intention is to create a comprehensive and integrated public education system, which addresses issues of duplication, as well as gaps in learning pathways.

4. Depending on the competencies of the learners from the skills school, they may access the NC(V) qualifications (if they have the equivalent of a Grade 9 or the General Education and Training Certificate for Adults), N1 programmes or NQF level 2 occupational qualifications offered in TVET colleges. They may gain access either directly or through the PLP programme. Colleges are required to administer baseline tests in language and Mathematics to make this determination.

Nolutshungu, Ms N to ask the Minister of Higher Education and Training

(1)Whether all educators at the Sharp Edge Training and Consulting are qualified; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details; (2) whether all students at the institution have been paid their stipends; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details; (3) whether she has found that there is corruption taking place at the specified institution; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

  1. Based on the information obtained from the Sector Education and Training Authorities (SETAs), educators at Sharp Edge are qualified to facilitate training. Sharp Edge Training and Consulting is accredited by the Manufacturing, Engineering and Related Services Sector Education and Training Authority (MerSETA) and Transport Education Training Authority (TETA) to offer training in trades such as welder, automotive body repairer and spray painter trades, automotive machining and fitting, boiler making and turning. Availability of qualified facilitators is part of the accreditation criteria that an institution should meet before accreditation is granted.
  2. The learners and staff have not been paid stipends and salaries since September 2018. TETA disbursed funds to Sharp Edge; however, these funds were misused by the management of Sharp Edge for other projects. TETA will be taking over the project and redeploying the learners to other training providers for the completion of their training. This will take effect on 13 December 2018. The stipends will be paid to the learners for the remainder of the training period.
  3. Due to Sharp Edge misusing funds intended for the development of learners, the contract between TETA and Sharp Edge has been terminated. TETA will ensure that the learners in this project are assisted in completing their training programmes by redeploying them to another training provider.

Lecturers in the CET colleges are appointed against the operational hours in the Community Learning Centres where they teach. The operational hours vary from centre-to-centre depending on whether or not the centre has its own premises. The Department cannot appoint staff beyond the actual hours worked, and remuneration is determined by the rates prescribed in the Personnel Administrative Measures.

Profile picture: Bozzoli, Dr B

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

(1)What (a) is the total budget allocated by each university and college for student representative council (SRC) election expenses over the past ten years, (b) amount is each person, party and/or entity standing in an SRC election at each university or college campus permitted to spend on election expenses and (c) are the specified expenses monitored; (2) have the budget allocations been exceeded or the rules related to election expenditure been broken in other ways in any case; if so, (a) on what date, (b) in which institutions and (c) what penalties have been meted out in each case?

Reply:

The Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges and universities monitor the Student Representative Council (SRC) budgets and expenses. Information regarding SRC funding has to be sourced from universities and colleges directly. The universities and TVET colleges listed in the tables below have provided the following responses based on the questions posed.

Universities

Name of University

(1)(a) Total budget allocated

(1)(b)-(c) Election expenses and monitoring

(2) (a)-(c) Exceeding of budget allocations

Cape Peninsula University of Technology

2013: R36 000.00

2014: R299 535.00

2015: R695 445.60

2016: R690 258.60

2017: R246 474.85

2018: R772 360.79

An external agency runs elections, and no funds are allocated for parties contesting the elections.

The Dean of Students is the most senior Executive who monitors the SRC election process and reports to the Executive Committee.

There is no record of the rules having been broken or of any action having been taken against any CPUT official relating to the running of the CPUT SRC elections.

University of Cape Town

The total budget allocated for SRC elections for the period 2009 to 2018 amounts to R946 940.00.

The amount each person/party and /or entity standing in an SRC election is permitted to spend on SRC election expenses is R800 per candidate for campaigning.

The specified expenses are monitored.

In the 2012 SRC elections, one of the parties campaigning in the elections received additional external funding towards its election campaign. The Electoral Committee for this transgression fined the party concerned.

Central University of Technology

R500 000.00 for Welkom Campus in the past decade and R2 200 000.00 for the Bloemfontein Campus

Election expenses are part of the SRC operational budget under the item of Elections set aside for operational costs of elections and payment of the service provider (IEC/PWC) which is set aside from the University auditing funds centralised to cover both Welkom and Bloemfontein electoral staff payments. They are used for marketing, printing of ballot papers, catering, transport between campuses, etc.

All specified expenses are monitored accordingly.

The only deviation is when the IEC is unable to assist due to its primary function of running national and local elections; the University will then use the services of PWC as an alternative.

Durban University of Technology

2009: R180 000.00

2010: R180 000.00

2011: R180 000.00

2012: R180 000.00

2013: R180 000.00

2014: R180 000.00

2015: R210 000.00

2016: R280 000.00

2017: R470 000.00

Each candidate is allocated R500 for personal campaigning; however, there is no regulation of how much more each candidate may raise to spend on one’s campaign.

The amount allocated to candidates is given to them to use at their discretion.

There have been occasions that budgeted amounts were exceeded.

In August 2016, a security situation occurred in the Midlands Campus – extra security measures had to be taken to defend the integrity of the elections resulting in additional costs. In 2017, a disruption during counting occurred at the Durban Campus, resulting in a new round of voting and counting.

This resulted in a security company being appointed and extra costs incurred.

University of Fort Hare

R650 000.00 for SRC elections per annum.

Approximately R300 000.00 is spent on the IEC that manages and conducts the SRC election. However, if the IEC is managing the SRC elections, the University pays approximately R60 000, which is mainly administrative costs. The University allocated R25 000 per organisation/individual (per Campus) for their campaigns for the SRC election in the 2017 and 2018 SRC elections.

The Student Governance and Development Unit administers the allocated amount, and as such is not allocated directly to the organisation/individuals contesting the SRC elections.

The University has not had instances where allocations have been exceeded or where the rules related to election expenditure have been broken.

University of Free State

2009: R169 165.00

2010: R125 000.00

2011: R93 537.00

2012: R309 500.00

2013: R254 595.00

2014: R315 064.00

2015: R300 000.00

2016: R200 000.00

2017: R784 200.00

2018: R950 000.00

The budget allocations cover the pre-election phase (would entail a tendering process by the Finance Department for Service Providers) and balloting phase (actual voting days).

UFS does not provide funds for any campaigning that falls outside of the formal campaigning schedule. The University does, however, intervene where there has been a violation of the electoral code of conduct.

The UFS Finance and Audit Departments audits and monitors the electoral budgets and associated expenditure of the SRC elections and other student governance structures. 

No budget was exceeded.

University of Johannesburg

2008 and 2009: There was no allocated budget

2010: R450 000.00

2011: R450 000.00

2012: R450 000.00

2013: R468 000.00

2014: R500 000.00

2015: R500 000.00

2016: R525 000.00

2017: R475 000.00

2018: R498 750.00

The budgeted funds are spent on marketing, printing of ballot papers and campaigning. Each contestant for SRC elections would receive R300.00 allowance for printing of campaigning material. For student organisations, the R300.00 allowance would be multiplied by the number of portfolios the organisation would be contesting.

The printing of material is monitored as printing happens on campus.

The allocated budgets were never exceeded in all the years reported on except the year 2017.

University of Limpopo

2015: R1 000 000.00

2016: R1 000 000.00

2017: R1 000 000.00

2018: R1 000 000.00

R20 000 is allocated to each registered student organisation to spend on marketing and campaigning material.

The expenses are monitored, as the printing of ballot papers is done through the University’s printing division and the procurement of marketing material is done through the University’s Finance Department (Procurement division).

The allocated budgets were never exceeded in all the years reported on except the 2017 year.

Mangosuthu University of Technology

2013: R250 000.00

2014: R250 000.00

2015: R404 455.60

2016: R489 927.00

2017: R709 700.00

2018: R951 900.00

Budget is allocated to each registered student organisation to spend on marketing and campaigning material.

There is no monitoring.

The budget has never been exceeded, and Rules relating to election expenditure have never been broken.

Nelson Mandela University

2009: R198 265.00

2010: R218 550.00

2011: R238 070.00

2012: R256 570.00

2013: R286 070.00

2014: R317 300.00

2015: R352 500.00

2016: No elections held

2017: R391 183.00

2018: R434 648.00

Budget allocations are used for general logistics related to organising and holding the actual elections. No budget allocations are made to individual persons, party or entity standing in an SRC election.

Expenditure is monitored and reported on annually.

No budgets have been exceeded

North West University

2009: R249 555.00

2010: R254 321.00

2011: R259 185.00

2012: R264 148.00

2013: R269 212.00

2014: R276 380.00

2015: R296 407.00

2016: R311 298.00

2017: R333 217.00

2018: R650 000.00

The Office of the Registrar currently provides the budget for this process and is responsible for administering the annual election process for the Student Representative Council and student campus councils at the respective campuses of the University.

The amount allocated in the budget has not been exceeded, and the rules related to the election expenditure have not been transgressed

University of Pretoria

2009: information not available in the PeopleSoft IT system

2010: R201 633.30

2011: R278 633.30

2012: R262 168.78

2013: R600 573.81

2014: R527 983.77

2015: R560 014.78

2016: R947 503.05

2017: R1 794 460.28 (an electronic voting system was introduced with associated costs)

2018: R1 221 574.58

The University of Pretoria supports campaigning candidates for SRC elections insofar as printing an equal number of posters across all its campuses. The printing costs are part of the budget, and they are all uniform except the message from each candidate based on the portfolio they are campaigning. Electronic campaigns on the University platform are at no cost.

Dedicated staff in the Finance Department monitor expenses and all activities are audited and reported to the University’s Audit and Risk Committee of Council.

Expenses are strictly according to the budget, and this is not in control of the SRC.

Rhodes University

2009: R7 000.00

2010: R7 500.00

2011: R8 000.00

2012: R8 560.00

2013: R20 000.00

2014: R15 000.00

2015: R10 000.00

2016: R15 000.00

2017: R30 000.00

2018: R30 000.00

The election budget is planned for within the University budget. Funds are not received from any external or political party regarding the SRC elections. Candidates utilise funds for campaign purposes (including posters).

One candidate on 10/08/2018 purchased 6 T-shirts, which were not declared. It came to the attention of the Independent Electoral Body (IEB) via the Administrator appointed to oversee the election process regarding compliance with all rules.

The case was deemed a minor infringement, only a determined number of votes were deducted from the candidate post voting.

Sefako Makgatho University

The University allocated R365 000.00 for 2018/ 2019 SRC election process. For the previous four years, the allocated budget was R250 000.00 for each election process.

In the 2018 elections process, the allocation per political structure was increased to R10 000. For the previous four years, the allocation was R6 000 per political structure.

The expenditure of the allocated amount is specifically designated for election promotional material of whatever nature determined by the specific political organisations.

These expenditures are processed through the University procurement system authorised by the University Governance Support Staff as well as the Director Student Affairs

The allocated elections budget has never been overspent over the past five years. This is due to the monitoring and control system that is in place.

Sol Plaatje University

2017: R85 000.00

2018: 100 000.00

Election expenses are for auditors, printing and stationery as well as refreshments.

These are monitored by the Head of Student Affairs and the University’s external auditors audit them annually.

Budget allocations have not been exceeded, nor election expenditure rules contravened

University of South Africa

2008: R1 491 250.00

2009: R41 984.00

2010: R0

2011: R3 131 174.00

2012: R5 078.00

2013: R995 119.00

2014: R1 352 323.00

2015: R0

2016: R3 862 226.00

2017: R0

2018: R10 879 153.00

Elections are not held every year, and expenses are thus of a project or cyclical nature. Sometimes expenses are processed in the subsequent year and may reflect as an overspent in that year.

Expenditure is monitored on a continuous basis.

Budget allocations have not been exceeded in total, or per election, nor have the rules related to election expenditure been broken.

Stellenbosch University

2017/2018: R72 988.22

2018/2019: R46 237.88

There are no records for the preceding eight years.

The amount that each person standing is permitted for marketing spend is decided by the election convenors, who are guided by the election rules, so that each candidate has a fair chance.

Year 2018/2019: R500 (total spend per candidate) x 14 candidates = R7 000

Year 2017/2018: R500 (total spend per candidate) x 14 candidates = R7 000

Student Governance monitors the total amount allocated and expended. Student Governance also plays an oversight role on what is spent during the elections. Furthermore, the University has financial controls systems, which promotes financial management.

No budget was exceeded, and no rules were broken in the 2018 and 2019 elections.

Tshwane University of Technology

2018: R620 000.00

Student Governance and Leadership Development (SGLD) Directorate operational budget covers other operational expenses related to elections amongst others; security, catering for all staff and volunteers, transport and voting venues on the day of the elections.

The SRC finance committee determines the allocation to student structures. That budget is for operations and programmes for the whole year including buying T-shirts and logistics for SRC elections because the budget is not sufficient and not the same from all structures the SGLD Directorate subsidies the structures participating in SRC elections with R1000 each for elections only. Officials in the SGLD monitors the day-to-day operations of these structures including their budget.

The SGDL directorate monitors how the structures manage their budgets. This is done to ensure that by the time SRC elections are conducted, no structures participating in elections have depleted their budgets.

Vaal University of Technology

- buildings are dilapidated; and

- the site is approximately 11 O kilometres from the Mopani South East TVET College and 38 kilometres from the Maake Campus of Letaba TVET College.

Letters were sent to both the Principals of Mopani South East and Letaba TVET Colleges for them to express an interest in developing and utilising the site for expansion.
