The Novalis Ubuntu Institute in Cape Town, South Africa is a non-profit organization committed to acknowledging, honouring and nurturing the unique gifts, talents and inner resources of each individual.
Our Holistic Adult Education Programme combines Steiner education principles with Ubuntu, the universal spiritual values embraced in African philosophy.
Natu is not aligned to any political party, members can freely choose which party to support. Unlike other teacher unions who are aligned with other political parties, Natu is neutral. The union was born 97 years ago and has had leaders who come from different political parties. One such leader was President ZK Matthews, who was an astute academic and was a leader of the ANC. He is grandparent of the Senior ANC Minister Naledi Pandor. Natu caters for all age groups, young and old. We have branch leaders who are young and old and we even have members who dont pay subscription in universities who are pursuing teaching qualifications. Natu is a member of Independent Labour Caucus and is also a member of Education Labour Relations in provinces. Although we are based in KZN, we do have a national presence with branches in Gauteng, Mpumalanga, North West, Eastern Cape etc.Continue reading →

We enjoy all the rights of a trade union in this sector and operate in the ELRC under the name of the Combined Trade Unions (CTU), called CTU ATU. The Autonomous Teachers Unions (ATU) consist of HOSPERSA, NAPTOSA, NATU, PEU, PSA and SAOU.The services that members receive from NAPTOSA are as good if not better than that which they received previously. There are more than 80 employees of the Union across the country whose sole aim and purpose is to serve our members. We have improved, and increased the frequency of our communications; offer cutting-edge Professional Development Programmes; increased the number of staff to deal with members queries and grievances; provide a wide range of structures and forums for members to air their views (Branches, Portfolio Committees, Phase and Principals Forums, Conferences etc). The LSEN and TVET College sectors are served by a National Unit situated in the NAPTOSA Gauteng offices with former SAUVSE staff making up its backbone and with the full professional and administrative support of all staff. NAPTOSA rejoices in the fact that it is the only education sector union that is truly representative of the demographics of our country. Our strength lies in the diverse backgrounds of our members. We are bound by a common commitment to professionalism and to educating the youth of South Africa.Continue reading →

The Education Association of South Africa (EASA) is an inclusive network of academics, researchers, and practitioners who all prioritize education, particularly education in South Africa. By means of active exchange and critique of hypotheses, theories, and practices, EASA-members strive to promote excellence in education-related research and science. EASA hosts an annual conference (generally in January) and this event offers a platform for spirited debate about education, past and present, and how this might best inform future education and necessary social change. A recurring joy at EASA conferences are the multiple voices that participate, including those of students, teachers, principals, and seasoned and emerging researchers/academics – these multiple voices stimulate nuanced and relevant, but also provocative learning.Continue reading →
