From 2020, the Department of Basic Education will include coding and robotics in the curriculum of grade R to grade three learners across the country. The curriculum for pupils in the senior phase of primary school is headed toward its final stages.

At the South African Democratic Teacher’s Union’s 9th national congress, the Minister of Basic Education, Angie Motshekga said, “Our teachers are being trained in computer skills including new teaching areas such as robotics and coding, amongst others”. This was said with reference to the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

Motshekga was proud to add that the number of learners starting school late has dropped significantly. She said, “Statistics show that the percentage of seven-year-old surveyed in the general household survey who have already completed grade one has increased from about 35% in 2002 to about 64% in 2017.
