Big honour for two junior lecturers of the NWU
POTCHEFSTROOM - Two junior lecturers of the School of Continuing Teacher Education on the Potchefstroom Campus of the North-West University (NWU) were recently awarded distance study bursaries from the Commonwealth Commission in the United Kingdom.
Ms Noziphiwo Kgati and Mr Titus Williams were selected from approximately 800 applicants in Africa to complete their master’s degrees in Education for Sustainability, and form part of the group of only 20 candidates that were eventually selected for this course.
Both the lecturers will do their MSc studies over the next four years at the South Bank University in London with the help of distance learning.
The Dean of the Faculty of Education, Prof Petra Engelbrecht, and the Director of the School, Prof Manie Spamer, nominated the lecturers for the bursaries and motivated them to apply.
Ms Kgati is currently a junior lecturer in Educational Management Training and Entrepreneurship in the NWU distance-learning programme. Mr Williams is currently a junior lecturer in History and Geography, also part of the NWU’s distance-learning programme.
