Advanced Diploma in Education

Uplifting the quality of education in our schools

The Advanced Diploma in Education (ADE) is a NQF level 7 qualification to equip in-service teachers with the subject content knowledge base, pedagogical theory and methodology that will enable them to demonstrate competence and responsibility as academics and professionals.

The programme is offered in a blended format, consisting of face to face contact sessions, telematics sessions and interactive e-lessons. The Hermanus Varsity tutors will provide weekly tutorials to students enrolled in this programme.
