Grade 10 to 12

In the FET Phase, Grade 10 to 12 learners are no longer seen as being home educated but as distance education learners. They have developed sufficient self-management skills to take responsibility for their learning journey (with supervision from the parents, of course).

GRADES 10 - 12

Impaq’s CAPS-aligned lesson material prepares learners for the final National Senior Certificate (NSC) examination at the end of Grade 12 and the start of their career path. The NSC is a three-year qualification, which means that every year must be taken seriously. In the FET Phase, learners must complete seven subjects, of which four are compulsory, and three are electives. Subjects offered are as follows: Two compulsory language subjects
  • At least one Home Language (English or Afrikaans)
  • Another language at either Home Language or First Additional Language level (English or Afrikaans)
One compulsory mathematical subject
  • Mathematics or
  • Mathematical Literacy
One other compulsory subject
  • Life Orientation

Learners can choose three elective subjects from the list below
  • Agricultural Sciences
  • Agricultural Management Practices
  • Computer Applications Technology
  • Agricultural Management Practices
  • Dramatic Arts (only available in English)
  • Engineering Graphics and Design
  • Information Technology (Only available in English)
  • Consumer Studies OR Hospitality Studies
  • Physical Sciences (requires Mathematics)
  • Accounting
  • Visual Arts
  • Tourism
  • Business Studies
  • Economics
  • Geography
  • History
  • Life Sciences
We also offer Robotics as a non-examination additional subject in Grades 7 – 12.

Security of Assessments in the FET Phase (Grades 10 - 12)

In the FET Phase, learners are regarded as distance education learners and, therefore, learners in Grades 10 – 12 are registered with SACAI, the assessment body for distance education. SACAI is quality assured by Umalusi. Umalusi issues the NSC to all learners who successfully complete the NSC qualification.

Requirements of homeschooling and how Impaq will assist you through the process.

Policy requirement

Parents should register their children for home education with their Provincial Education Department (PED).

Parents need to compile a portfolio of evidence (containing the activities and assessments) for every child.

Parents must provide the PED with feedback on the learner’s progress. Progress must be assessed by qualified teachers registered with the South African Council of Educators (SACE).

Parents can follow any curriculum that meets the minimum outcomes as set out in the national curriculum.

Learners in the FET Phase (Grades 10 to 12) must be registered with an assessment body.

What Impaq offers

Impaq assists with information on the necessary steps to follow to register with the PED.

Our offering includes portfolio activities that assist parents in building a portfolio of evidence for every child.

Impaq provides parents with progress reports, which could be provided to the PED at the end of every phase. We make use of qualified teachers as per the policy requirements to develop all our assessments. For quality purposes, assessments can also be sent to Impaq for marking.

Registration with Impaq ensures that learners follow the national CAPS-aligned curriculum.

Impaq equips parents with all the materials needed to be the primary educator. Supporting tutorial services are subject to the restrictions contained in the policy.

Assessment bodies do not register independent candidates. FET learners, therefore, must register with a curriculum provider, who is registered with an assessment body. Impaq is registered with SACAI, which ensures the credibility of the NSC.
