PURPOSE AND BACKGROUND

  • Supply, maintenance and support of a multimedia broadcast solution in secondary schools in the Government;
  • Training of presenters, subject advisors, SMT – School Management Team members, teachers and learners to ensure effective utilisation of the multimedia broadcast solution to the Government Department of Education.

BACKGROUND

The Provincial Strategy on Learner Attainment PSLA is used to detail the support to all schools and subjects and parties the envisaged permission to be provided given the existing human resources. It became clear that additional resources were needed to complement the subject advisory services and teach the learners how they learn.

Learners are fascinated by technology and learn much more manageable and fast when exposed to ICT support. The outbreak of Covid- forced the department to move faster in providing resources that learners can use from home with the aid of cellphones, tablets and laptops.

Over the years, the Government Department of Education has recorded a steady improvement in performance in the NSC examinations. One of the contributing interventions was the Internet Broadcast Programme IBP that supported mainly the eleven big enrolment subjects.

The current Internet Broadcast Programme IBP contract came to an end in June. The Government Department of Education realised the need to reinvest in such a programme as its impact cannot be ignored, especially considering the current situation.

The IBP programme was rolled out to schools across the province. In addition, to live broadcasts to these schools, videos already captured on the catalogue can also be retrieved from iBoxes at schools for viewing whenever needed. Furthermore, quarterly memoranda discussions were broadcasted to some of these IBP centres and all teachers in a particular subject assembled at selected IBP centres to view broadcasts and to conduct participate in centralised marking.

Towards the end of the contract period, it became evident that broadcasting equipment placed in the schools was outdated, and these centres’ functioning became problematic. This is mainly due to equipment becoming obsolete and also non-functioning due to age. There is an urgent need to upgrade equipment in the schools in a staggered manner.

In addition to the current schools, the department wants to expand the multimedia broadcast solution to schools. The multimedia broadcast solution project can significantly help this district assist wherever there is no teacher or where a teacher cannot teach in the required language.

Maintenance at the centres is crucial for the period.

  • Training of presenters and subject advisors and senior management teams SMT – School Management Teams, teachers and learners of the schools will be needed for the whole duration of the contract.

  • Supply, upgrade, maintain and support a multimedia broadcast solution in secondary and MST – Maths-Science and Technology secondary schools;
