The RPL Conundrum
The RPL Conundrum
Recognition of Prior Learning in a Teacher Upgrading Programme
Mignonne Breier

The practice of Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) in the education of adults seeks to affirm and accredit the knowledge and skills which they have already attained in the course of their working lives. This monograph explores the implementation of RPL in a programme designed to upgrade tens of thousands of under-qualified teachers and finds a baffling dilemma: how does one value prior learning which one believes to be misguided, outdated, or inappropriate?

Mahmood Mamdani

Student aspirations and higher education realities

Student Retention and Graduate Destination
Student Retention and Graduate Destination
Higher Education and Labour Market Access and Success
Moeketsi Letseka, Michael Cosser, Mignonne Breier , Mariette Visser (eds)

Student attrition has been a perennial theme in South African higher education throughout the past decade. In its National Plan for Higher Education (2001), the Department of Education attributed high dropout rates primarily to financial and/or academic exclusions. Four years later, it reported that 30% of students dropped out in their first year of study and a further 20% during their second and third years.

Teacher Education and Institutional Change in South Africa
Teacher Education and Institutional Change in South Africa
Glenda Kruss

In 1994, the South African teacher education landscape was fragmented across a wide variety of institutional sites. Ten years later, initial teacher education was taking place in a very different environment, shaped by a decade of far-reaching legislative, policy and structural changes. While change was necessary and inevitable after the democratic transition of 1994, successive waves of internal restructuring, college incorporation and higher education mergers placed heavy demands on both academics and management.
