Learners study in their own time and space according to their unique learning needs. Learners can progress at their own pace within the period/weeks allocated per semester (20-22 weeks). Any extension of a semester must serve at the office of the Dean and is not automatically granted.

You are not able to do two Grades in one year.

  • The credit system prescribes a minimum number of credits that a learner has to complete in order to earn a passing/qualification status in a certain course or grade.
  • This means that learners are only limited to one grade per year.
  • Learners receive a certificate at the end of each year.

The learner gets their certificate at an end of a grade, and can sent it to SAQA (South African Qualifications Authority). They rate it for the learner to go back into a South African school (CAPS).

Anchored Education accommodates every kind of learner. However, a full-time teacher(s) must be available to assist your child at home. Teachers should be available to assist with assignments. The duration of writing courses in the exam cannot be extended. Please note that we will interview you (the parent or caregiver) before enrollment to determine your child’s needs.

Anchored Education aims to encourage collaborative learner work early in a semester and then keep groups together for the semester to create more engagement. This further enables learners to chat and connect with one another.

Anchored Education forbids any sort of harassment, cyberbullying, or any unacceptable behavior within the school environment.

 

 

Teachers monitor the interaction between learners during the online lessons. Learners may approach teachers if there is a need to report bullying. We have a zero-tolerance policy towards bullying, and perpetrators are dealt with appropriately.

All the study materials and resources are provided online. Learners can access them through their preferred (or as prescribed by us) devices, at their preferred locations and at convenient milestones during their perusal of the courses.

Parents and learners can book a virtual tour and have an individual session with a consultant about the School.

Anchored Education continuously monitors and guides all its learners through its academic and support teams. All ‘Log-in’ hours of learners and teachers are monitored, and your coursework is thoroughly monitored by the Heads of the different departments.

You can choose to study at your own time and location. However, International Schooling expects you to complete the prescribed number of hours that are required to efficiently complete your course and learning and earn successful credits (wherever applicable). In this manner, your attendance is important.

An important and critical requirement of effective learning is the feedback mechanism to the parent. A parent has the right as well as the duty to know the performance of his/her child.  This also helps the parent to contribute better to the learning and development of the learner. Teachers will monitor every child’s attendance and progress daily. This will be communicated to the parents via email on a regular basis.
