LISTEN: The impact of Covid-19 disruptions and learning losses on exam readiness

With school exams fast approaching the question of whether learners are ready or not surfaces. Our Program Director, Merle Mansfield, speaks to Power FM about this. She is joined in conversation by the Department of Basic Education’s spokesperson, Elijah Mhlanga, and Co-founder of the Faculty of Best Advisory, Mafule Moswane.

Mansfield elaborates on the impact of Covid-19 school closures and learning losses. She explains how this will impact learner’s examination marks, making it harder for them to keep their grip on schooling. She goes on to explain the type of support, and indeed the demand for support, that schools need to create learning environments that can catch our learners up.
