Minister Blade Nzimande says the Higher Education Department has adopted a framework to deal with gender-based violence in the post-school education and training sector.


Although most Universities have provided students with laptops, Government has seen delays in the process of procuring these devices. Nzimande discussed this in his briefing and also made other recommendations to improve learning during this time such as resources and connectivity. 


Nzimande has reported that with Health Check, a screening app, hundreds of thousands of screenings have taken place at campuses across South Africa as students are welcomed back in a phased approach. 


Blade Nzimande has set up a Committee of Inquiry to launch an investigation into the systems at NSFAS after many issues were found concerning delays in applications and payments. The Minister has provided updates on this. 


The Minister of Higher Education has announced the dates for when those Universities who have not seen students return will be doing so. He has also given an update on Covid-19 in Higher Education and the effects it has had on Higher Education.
