With regards to the programme, the LO manual addresses the main topics that are relevant to scholars today. The CAPS eBook provides additional topics, so as to make sure that the entire curriculum is covered.

Can schools who run workshops or LO days with students for Life Orientation use the programme?

We do have an option to structure our content for a workshop/island/LO day format for LO. We work with several schools who adopt this approach. For more information, contact info@achievecareers.co.za

Why is the LO programme updated annually?

With the ever-changing world that we live in, we need to ensure that the content remains abreast with current trends and information, ensuring continuous benchmarking with international standards. The nature of LO topics such as social media, CV compilation, university applications and interview skills are continuously evolving and it our objective is to ensure that scholars are provided with current and relevant information.

Can schools re-use the same edition each year?

The Achieve Careers LO programme is updated on an annual basis therefore, schools need to renew their licence with Achieve Careers. This is outlined in the Achieve Careers copyright agreement.

Does the programme meet the IEB requirements?

Achieve Careers works mostly with IEB schools (approximately 90% of our clients are IEB) and we remain up-to-date with the IEB requirements. This is our niche focus. From GR 10 we build a strong focus on critical thinking skills and multiple perspectives to ensure that scholars are well equipped to answer their GR 12 CAT.

Why can't learners using eBooks via IT Schools platform/Snapplify type in the eBooks?

 When the eBooks are used via an online platform, the platform converts the eBooks to flat PDF’s. The schools using ITSI ask scholars to “add notes” for activities.
