TVET Lecturers’ guides

The lecturers’ guides “Facilitating Active Citizenship” were developed in a cooperation between Civics Academy and the South African Department of Higher Education (DHET).

The aim of the guides is to assist Life Orientation Lecturers at Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges to facilitate fun and interactive classes that promote active citizenship and voter education amongst their students. The step by step Guides cover 5 Civics Academy videos: 

  1. What is a responsive citizen?
  2. Why should you vote?
  3. What are free and fair elections?
  4. What are Human Rights?
  5. Why is Civic Education important?

The guides explain how to use these videos in life orientation teaching in accordance with the TVET curricula. They support different teaching and learning styles, including digital literacy.
