About 20 teachers have been found to be teaching despite not having qualifications, according to the report released by South African Council for Educators (SACE).
According to the report, teachers often receive fraudulently acquired qualifications accredited to University of Zululand (UniZulu), University of South Africa (Unisa) and the University of North West.
SACE communications manager, Themba Ndlovu, says they will now make sure they verify all qualifications brought to SACE for registration.
Ndlovu says the report revealed that universities are also selling qualifications.
We are working with the provincial education departments, South African Qualifications Authority, and universities. I think as we finalise the modalities of how best we are going to do this verification, with those partners in mind, our job will be easier.— Themba Ndlovu, SACE communications manager
