previously marginalised African languages (at First

opportunities for the development of African
languages as a significant part of preserving
heritage and cultures.

Branch T and
Provinces
Nov 2013
DBE conducted an audit. Results show that provinces are at
varying levels of teacher provision. Four provinces (FS, LP, NC
and KZN) have provided African Language teachers in all
former Model C schools; Two provinces (MP;GP) have
teachers in some schools; EC and NW have put plans in
place to provide the teachers for African languages; In WC
schools share a African language teacher.
DBE and provinces are working on a model to ensure
incremental provision of African language teachers in grades
that are implementing IIAL.
HEI guarantee to upscale
training of teachers to
Grade 12
Branch T/ DHET
Ongoing
DBE has flagged the training of African Language teacher
training with HEIs and in August 2013 the issue will be on
the agenda for the colloquium. Currently the Funza Lushaka
bursary programme has prioritized recruitment of FP African
language students for training.
Classes being taught by
one teacher in the FP
Branch C
Nov 2013
Provinces will have to appoint an African Language teachers
to teach at FAL level.
VARIABLES THAT INFLUENCE IMPLEMENTATION
Four variables influence implementation of IIAL:
• Variable one: Number of schools that currently do not
offer an African language (3 738 schools country-wide)
• Variable two: Number of Grade R and Grade one
classes that do not currently do not offer an African
language (Grade R: 5062 classes; Grade one: 8321
classes)
• Variable three: Teacher availability and expertise to
teach an African language to Grade R and Grade 1
learners.
• Variable four: Distance between schools
