Key Performance Areas

Alert to its African and international context, the University of the Western Cape (UWC) strives to be a place of excellence in teaching, learning and research, nurturing the cultural diversity of South Africa, and responding in creative and critical ways to the developmental needs of the country.

Through its academic project, UWC continues to play a leading role in helping to build an equitable and dynamic society in South Africa.

The Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) is implementing the fourth phase of the New Generation of Academics’ Programme (nGAP) of the Staffing South African Universities’ Framework.

nGAP involves the recruitment of new academics who display significant potential for scholarship in teaching and research.

The programme consists of a 6-year development programme, including short courses on research and teaching development. As a permanently appointed Academic, employment will commence with a reduced teaching load.

The workload will increase to a full load within the 6-year period with a spread of responsibilities and levels. Applicable support will be provided by an appointed coach, mentor and all UWC structures and systems, while progress will be monitored to ensure successful completion of the nGAP.

As this is a partnership between DHET and UWC, successful candidates will have to comply with the normal employment conditions of UWC, as well as the requirements of DHET.

The Faculty of Economic and Management Sciences recognises that it has an important role to play in preparing a much more representative proportion of the population for careers in the varied fields of the world of work.

The degree, diploma and certificate programmes offered by the Faculty span careers in both the private and public sectors and are, for the most part, oriented to prepare students for scarce skill sectors such as accounting, economics, business management, financial management and investment, human resource management, information systems, and public administration (at all three tiers of government).

The Department of Industrial Psychology forms part of the EMS Faculty and prides itself in producing HPCSA accredited Industrial Psychologists from a wide variety of backgrounds.
