Advanced Certificate in Education (ACE) Graduation, UCT
Our last cohort of Advanced Certificate in Education (ACE) students graduated from UCT on Wednesday afternoon. In all 11 graduated with and ACE in Curriculum Leadership in the Intermediate Phase; 14 graduated with an ACE in Curriculum Leadership in the Foundation Phase.
It was a bittersweet moment, as we also had 34 students graduating with an Advanced Certificate in Teaching, specializing in either Senior Phase mathematics, or Senior Phase Natural Sciences.
So, as we said goodbye to our graduating ACE students, we welcomed the ACT graduates who had successfully completed their studies.
Once can quite imagine the excitement of our graduates as they waited their turn, seated patiently in the Jameson Hall, to go up to be capped and hooded on the stage in front of an audience of friends and family. On the platform, their lecturers looked on with pride as their students filed by, one by one, to receive their certificates.
After the ceremony, the graduates gathered on the Jammie steps for photographs with their classmate, lecturers and family members, and then proceeded to the Lesley Social Sciences Building for refreshments.
