Technological Research

Technological Research
A laboratory is a facility that provides controlled conditions in which technological research, experiments, and measurement are performed. Laboratories used for scientific research take many forms because of the differing requirements of specialists in the various fields of science and engineering. In some laboratories, such as those commonly used by computer scientists, computers (sometimes supercomputers) are used for either simulations or the analysis of data collected elsewhere. As an engineering lab, Instructors laboratories builds and test technological devices.

Life Skills Development



In 1997 the Department of Education introduced outcomes-based education to overcome the curricular divisions of the past, but the experience of implementation prompted a review in 2000. This led to the first curriculum revision: the Revised National Curriculum Statement Grades R-9 and the National Curriculum Statement Grades 10-12 (2002).

From 2012 the two 2002 curricula, for Grades R-9 and Grades 10-12 respectively, are combined in a single document and will simply be known as the National Curriculum Statement Grades R-12. The National Curriculum Statement for Grades R-12 builds on the previous curriculum but also updates it and aims to provide clearer specification of what is to be taught and learned on a term-by-term basis.


The Department encourages inclusivity to become a central part of the organisation, planning and teaching at each institution. This can only happen if all Driving Instructor(s) have a sound understanding of how to recognise and address barriers to learning, and how to plan for diversity.

Life Orientation is the study of the self in relation to others and to society. It addresses skills, knowledge, and values about the self, the environment, responsible citizenship, a healthy and productive life, social engagement, recreation and physical activity, careers and career choices. These include opportunities to engage in the development and practice of a variety of life skills to solve problems, to make informed decisions and choices and to take appropriate actions to live meaningfully and successfully in a rapidly changing society. It not only focuses on knowledge, but also emphasises the importance of the application of skills and values in real-life situations, participation in physical activity, community organisations and initiatives.

The Life Orientation subject at school now includes a K53 Learner's Licence as an optional certificate course counting towards a learner's year mark. The instructional time in the Senior Phase of Life Orientation at high school is two (2) hours and additional to the K53 Training Manual which requires 18 hour(s) of studying in order to pass the test. The allocated time per week may be utilised only for the minimum required subject.
