The BEd degree qualifies you as a teacher for any school in South Africa and entitles you to register with the South African Council for Educators (SACE).
Those who wish to qualify as a teacher in the secondary (high) school level, can also opt for a first degree programme (such as a BA), followed by a one year Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE).
