2021 Online Learner Admissions


The Northern Cape Department of Education will be going online with 2021 Learner Admission process. We regard the early enrolment of learners as a priority for the successful start of the school academic year. Over the years, the start of a new school academic year has become synonymous with parents queuing at schools and District offices, seeking placement for their children.


For the past 2 years we have been administrating the learner admissions electronically to pilot the system. This new system will enable parents to enrol their children from the comfort of their home. 


The MEC for Education will officialy launch the online admission system in August 2020. The learner admission period will be open for applications as from the 1st of September 2020.


The Department will avail walk-in Centres per district with dedicated personnel to assist parents that do not have access to internet facilities and or inadequate data. The Online Admission system will assist in curbing late admission applications after the closing date, backlog of placements and also assist with social distancing and adhere to the Covid-19 regulations, particularly in preferred schools. 


It is important to indicate that NO school will receive learner admission applications for the 2021 school academic year. All parents/ guardians must make use of either the Online Admission process or our District based walk-in centres to complete the application for your child.
