What is a VAK (visual, auditory and kinaesthetic) centre?
VAK is a popular pedagogical approach centred on the uses of three main sensory receivers: Visual (eyes), Audio (ears), Kinaesthetic (movement) to determine the dominant learning style of an individual. It was originally devised in the 1920s to assist teaching children with dyslexia. Subsequently, this has been more widely applied and its relevance established. VAK centres use all modalities of learning to approach the student’s school work so that a student sees, hear as well as feels (by touch) what they are learning in their being.

Is GED SAT’s a high school curriculum?
The GED is not a curriculum, it is a high school equivalency test. Unlike traditional school exams, it does not test knowledge of content, but rather tests skills, such as reading and critical thinking and maths.
There is no ‘Grade 7 curriculum’ for the GED. Parents choosing this as an option as a school leaving certificate use a whole range of different curricula in the years proceeding, in order for their children to develop skills that they need, while learning interesting content of their own choosing. It is rather a mind shift from how the school system works.

What is the GED®?
The GED® is a high school Grade 12 equivalency certificate. The GED® test was developed for this purpose, similar to an adult matric. It has subsequently been written by more than 17 million students in the USA and around the world, including South Africa!
All fifty states in the United States officially offer the GED® tests and they are written in more than 3000 testing centres worldwide.
- The GED testing service makes it possible to earn a Grade 12 high school equivalency credential. In South Africa, the GED credential is recognised by SAQA. It is comparable to the South African National Senior Certificate (Matric) or an NQF Level 4 qualification.
