Botswana Curriculum
Schooling in Botswana is not mandatory. The first ten years, starting at age six, is however free. There are seven years of primary school, the first four of which are taught in Setswana. After that, classes are taught in English. After primary school, students then move on to three years of junior secondary school. Upon completion of the third year, students take their junior secondary examination. If they pass, they can either choose to end their education or go on to two years of senior secondary school, which is not free. If they choose to continue their education, they take the Botswana General Certificate of Secondary Education, which is required for any form of higher education, be it vocational or college. There are a few different options for college, the top of which being the University of Botswana.
Education for Everyone
Many schools in Botswana often have limited resources. Most of them are incapable of providing a good education for students with special needs. Parents of these students have to pay for their education. For these students who still wish to learn, we offer a solution. Our homeschooling classes allow students to study at home when it’s convenient for them. Free ELearning classes is at the level of the student, not where he or she is expected to be. Students can work at a comfortable pace and review older lessons as needed to fully understand their lessons.
Education doesn’t have to stop simply because the student can no longer attend a physical school building. With online education, learning can be done any time at any place. Let us prove that we’re the right fit for you with free online classes for thirty days.
