Title: HIGHER EDUCATION LANDSCAPE ACROSS SOUTHERN AFRICA


1
INTRODUCTION
  • HIGHER EDUCATION LANDSCAPE ACROSS SOUTHERN AFRICA
  • FORMATION OF TSHWANE UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY
  • FORMATION OF HEFMA

2
MERGING OF UNIVERSITIES
  • Minister of Education Professor Kader Asmal in
    accordance with section 23(1) of the Higher
    education Act, 1997 (Act no 101 of 1997) and
    after consulting the council on Higher education,
    South Africa started reforming its higher
    education system, merging and incorporating small
    universities into larger institutions, and
    renaming all higher education institutions
    (previously there had been several types of
    higher education institution).

  • South African Universities serve the continent of
    Africa with Education and Development. Many
    private schools are taking hands to form a
    international University, based in South Africa
    with a Virtual University in Kroonstad. Many
    universities around the world would like to take
    hands with this International Universities to
    develop those who may not be able to afford
    courses in higher learning. Already they received
    affiliation with ITSC in the USA. Accredited by
    CANUS in Nigeria, Business Courses from the UK
    are in the process and a university of India gave
    the green light for cooperation

4
  • There are also a large number of other
    educational institutions in South Africa-some are
    local campuses of foreign universities, some
    conduct classes for students who write their
    exams at the distance-education University of
    South Africa.
  • Public universities in South Africa are divided
    into three types traditional universities, which
    offer theoretical-oriented university degrees
    university of technology, which offer
    practically-oriented diplomas and degrees in
    technical fields and comprehensive universities,
    which offer a combination of both types of
    qualification

TSHWANE UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY
  • Motto We empower people
  • Established 2003
  • Type University of Technology
  • Students approx. 60 000
  • Location Gauteng, Mpumalanga and
    Limpopo Provinces.
  • Website (http//www.tut.ac.za/)

10
  • Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) is a
    higher education institution in South Africa that
    came into being through a merger of three
    technikons- Technikon Northern Gauteng, Technikon
    North-West and Technikon Pretoria.
  • As the number of students registering annually
    grows rapidly, records show that Tshwane
    University of Technology caters for aproximately
    60 000 students and it has become the largest
    residential higher education institution in South
    Africa

11
  • It comprises up to six well-equipped satellite
    campuses positioned well to meet the higher
    education needs of different communities in South
    Africa
  • These campuses include Arcadia(33756 sqm),
    Arts(25998 sqm), Garankuwa (28914 sqm),
    Nelspruit(7729 sqm), Pretoria West(111605 sqm),
    Polokoane(2829 sqm), Soshanguve (116226 sqm), and
    Witbank (7826 sqm)Campuses.

12
VISION
  • To be the leading higher education institution
    with an entrepreneurial ethos that promotes
    knowledge and technology, and provides
    professional career education of an international
    standard, which is relevant to the needs and
    aspirations of Southern Africans people.

13
CHALLENGES FACING MERGING INSTITUTIONS
  • Different policies and procedures
  • Different tender procedures and processes
  • Different tuition fees
  • Different academics offerings
  • Different grants from DOE

14
Building Estate Directorate
  • Because of differed maintenance on facilities,
    the approach after merger was to appoint a firm
    of quantity surveyors to quantify the backlog
    maintenance on our facilities and also highlight
    areas where immediate preventative maintenance
    could be done. They were also tasked to advise on
    the strategy to tackle differed maintenance.
    These approach enabled the management to
    implement equal tuition fees to students across
    the university.

15
  • It has been found useful to estimate
    quantitatively cost of catching-up with
    maintenance backlogs, rather than by simply
    catergorising them qualitatively as high,
    medium, low or some other qualitative scale.
    Directorate need to know what the consequence of
    responsibility for their facilities are in
    qualitative terms, so that budgetary arrangements
    could be made that reflect, so far as
    practicable, the realities of their situations

16
  • In their report, a circle of attending to
    maintenance was spread over a period of five
    years with the clear indication of cost estimate.
    The results also indicated the sort of liability
    that may exist for those owners, such as
    education agencies, that are responsible for
    large portfolios of facilities.

17
  • While this small sample was chosen to illustrate
    a useful approach to measurement of maintenance
    backlogs and is not necessary indicative of
    university buildings in general, the results
    suggest that the liability for backlog catch-up
    involves funding that would be a substantial
    addition to normal annual maintenance funding.
    The alternative would be further degradation of
    building serviceability-probably at an
    accelerated pace

18
  • The figure suggested that facilities at least had
    not yet reached the degree of under-maintenance
    suffered by other universities whether they
    would do so in future depends on the application
    of real effort to determine the facts of
    maintenance backlog and to recognise the funding
    liabilities, using methodologies such as
    described in the report, and to apply appropriate
    resources-financial and technical-to rectify them
    efficiently.

19
HEFMA
Higher Education Facility Management Association
of Southern Africa
  • The Higher Education Facilities Management
    Association of Southern Africa has developed from
    Timcon The tertiary Institutes Maintenance
    Conference, which was established to serve as an
    annual forum for the mutual discussion and
    education of Maintenance and Facility Managers at
    the higher education institution in Southern
    Africa. The need to develop this institution to a
    more permanent association for the benefit of the
    Facility Managers of higher education
    institutions of the Southern African countries
    led to the establishment of HEFMA Higher
    Education facility Management Association of
    Southern Africa in 2000.

20
  • The 2007 HEFMA Annual Conference will be hosted
    by the Walter Sisulu University for Technology
    and Science from 22 to 26 October 2007 at
    Empengweni, East London, Eastern Cape, in South
    Africa.
