Applicants are required to have successfully passed matric. The applicant's ability to cope with the level of the course needs to be established, evidence of which can be found in a matriculation certificate with exemption or a sufficient aggregate in relevant subjects. In case of doubt a standard literacy test is part of the selection process.
Prior learning can be recognised (RPL), and a specific leaflet is available for more information. The Centre's Diploma in Education which was offered before the programme changed to the B.Ed. degree comprises half the credits of the Bachelor of Education.
All applicants are interviewed as part of the application process. Selection criteria are whether the applicant meets the entry requirements, understands the nature of the training programme, has an openness of mind (particularly a willingness to allow diversity of opinion and belief), is in good health (to be able to meet the requirements of the programme), is willing to subscribe to an non-substance abuse policy, is able to engage in self-study outside of course hours and is able to maintain financial commitments in respect of the training programme.
