Ready for University studies

20 Jan,2017Profiles

Anna Matlou has been accepted in the faculty of education at the University of Mpumalanga to study for a Bachelor of Education degree in Foundation Phase on a part-time basis next year.

Matlou, a mother of two who joined the Orogramme in 2012 and works in the Ditholo Team, believes educating herself will bring more opportunities.

Her desire to study Foundation Phase education was inspired by the children she taught in Grade R after matriculating. This encounter sparked her love of teaching and working with children.”

“I went to the Siyabuswa campus in Mpumalanga to enquirie about the courses they offer. I found that they offered the Bachelor of Education in Foundation Phase. I immediately put in my application as the course resonated with me,” she says.

She says she will be paying the fees from her own pocket but intends to apply for a Fundza Lushaka (teacher’s) bursary or apply for a government-sponsored study loan to supplement her own funds.

“I have managed to save part of my monthly stipends and have saved enough to pay my tuition for the first year,” she says. “In the meantime I will continue with my work in the Programme.”
