SABC and Dept. of Basic Education launch TV and Radio study programmes for learners

The SABC and the Department of Basic Education have launched a multi-media learner support initiative under the banner: COVID-19 Learner support aimed at limiting the impact of the lockdown to the school calendar. The initiative is part of the broader efforts to prevent a total loss of school year since the lockdown was announced by President Cyril Ramaphosa as a measure to combat the spread of coronavirus.

The programme is scheduled to start Thursday, 09 April 2020 and will broadcast across three SABC TV Channels and 13 Radio stations with online support. The series will provide curriculum support lessons to learners I Grades 10, 11 and 12 and Early Childhood Development(ECD). Some of the subjects covered include Maths, Physical Sciences, English FAL, Life Sciences and Accounting. A variety of African languages are also covered under the ECD basket.
This initiative is also launched in anticipation of the mid-year exams due in June 2020. The campaign will be providing learners with relevant support material they need in order for them to walk into those exam rooms knowing they have received the support and information they need to tackle the exams with confidence.
Learners are encouraged to check their local listings for the exact slots for the radio. The SABC and the National Department of Basic Education created the campaign to be the daily source of information and the central shared hub for learner support.
The TV schedule is as follows:
SABC 1: Mon – Sun (5am to 6am)
SABC 2: Mon – Fri (9:30am to 11am)
SABC 3: Mon – Fri (6am – 7am)
