For Immediate Release; 17 October 2022
OR Tambo School of Leadership amended the certification structure of its Prerequisite Course so as to streamline its offerings. This follows an assessment of the school’s courses and an effort aimed at most appropriate packaging.
Currently there are four modules in the Prerequisite Course. These being:
- Module 1: History of South Africa and the ANC
- Module 2: Building the ANC Organisation
- Module 3: Government
- Module 4: Economic Development
These foundational modules serve as a precondition to advance to the next stage of the learning pathway, which is the Strategic Courses. Participants received a certificate for each completed module. Henceforth, only one certificate will be issued titled Introduction to Political Studies upon completion of all four modules.
An additional change is that the timeframe within which to complete the Introduction to Political Studies is now capped at three months. Previously no time limits were set, regrettably leading to a number of modules remaining incomplete for lengthy periods. Participants are urged to complete the course within the stipulated timeframe. Failure to do so will result in deregistration from the course.
The four prerequisite certificates already awarded remains valid and has the same effect as the Introduction to Political Studies course. Participants currently completing the Prerequisite Course will now be awarded a single certificate of Introduction to Political Studies in line with the new arrangements mentioned.
On the school’s website (www.ortamboschool.org.za) the course will be depicted as Introduction to Political Studies( Pre-Requisite Course).
