2021 PATTERN MAKING
Clarification on Instalment Option
Learners’ fees must be paid directly into the SEWAFRICA bank account on the first day of the month. Fees will be payable in advance, starting on the 1st of February 2021 and finishing on the 1st of September 2021. The monthly fee on instalment option is therefore R 750. A student who registers later than February 2021 will still be liable for the full annual fees, whether or not they attended classes. Example: a student registering on the 3rd of March will be required to pay R 1,500 registration fee plus R 750 from 1st of February and R 750 from the 1st of March before they may attend class.
Policy for Withdrawal from Course
If a student is unable to continue their studies at SEWAFRICA for whatever reason the student must give written notification of one full calendar month (one full calendar months’ notice means that notice is received on the 1st working day of the month). Please note that the payment will still be due for the months’ notice period as explained below. If notification is not received in writing the student will still be liable for the fees and no monies will be refunded, regardless of whether the student attended or not.
If written notice is given on the 1st of July and the fees were up to date on the 1st of July, then no further payments will be due.
However, if written notice is received after the 1st working day of the month (2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc) then the final payment will be made on the first day of the month following the notice. So, if the notification is received on the 3rd of July the final payment will be due on the 1st of August.
I acknowledge that I understand the instalment system and hereby agree to make a payment into the SEWAFRICA bank account each month starting on the 1st of February 2021 and ending on the 1st of September 2021. This will be in settlement of the fees of R 7,500 (including registration) due to SEWAFRICA. I understand that if the payment is not made and proof of payment sent to the college on the first day of the month, in advance, then the student will be suspended from class.
I acknowledge the above and agree to abide by it.
SEWAFRICA Indemnity Form

Students purchase their own equipment as per lists provided. All tools and materials, etc for projects must be purchased by the student as per lists provided. Students are not permitted to share tools and equipment. Each student must have their own so as not to cause others to fall behind in their work.
All students and parents (person paying the fees) to attend a compulsory induction morning on Saturday the 24 January 2021 at 9h30 at SEWAFRICA. Yearplans, materials and equipment list, curriculum expectations, code of conduct will be discussed, and financial and administrative requirements will be completed. The academic year begins on Saturday the 7th of February 2021 at 8h30 at SEWAFRICA.
Code of Practice Essentials
Students must meet the Due Performance criteria to qualify to be assessed. Students are therefore required to attend and be on time for 75% of the lectures. Where students arrive more than 10 minutes late for a lecture, it will not form part of their Due Performance. Anyone who does not meet the Due Performance criterion may not be eligible for assessment and will therefore not qualify for the certificate of competence. SEWAFRICA presents a curriculum that focuses on practical activities. 80% of all work done must be done in class at SEWAFRICA so that lecturers can verify that the work submitted is authentic. This is the reason for the Due Performance criterion.
If a student is absent for any reason, they must call the reception and inform the receptionist of the reason for their absence. If the student is absent for 2 or more days in a month, they are required to bring a doctors’ note. If a student is absent without contacting the centre, the centre may contact the parent/guardian/sponsor to ascertain the reason for the absence. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure, upon their arrival, that all notes, projects, and assignments are collected from the relevant lecturer and that any missed work is caught up before the next class. This is a part time class and lecturers are only available on a Saturday. If a student misses a class, they will not be able to catch up with the lecturer during the week.
Late Coming and Admissions to Class
Students who arrive late disrupt the teaching and learning process for other students who are prompt. For this reason, late students are not permitted to enter lecture rooms. Once the lecture has begun, students who are late may not enter. Students without the required equipment and materials will not be allowed to enter classrooms. Students who are absent for an exam or test or on the day an assignment is due need to submit a Doctor’s note verifying that the student was not fit to attend on that day. Clinic cards will not be accepted.
Children and Visitors
No children or adults, who are not students of SEWAFRICA, are permitted in the classrooms nor may they be in any other area of SEWAFRICA (including reception) while the student is in class.
Late Submission of Work
Late submission of assignments /work is not tolerated. A deduction of 5% per day will be made up to a maximum of 10 days. Thereafter students will receive 0%. Students who want to submit after that need to fill in a resubmission form and pay R50 for a supplementary date. The resubmission fee goes up every 30 days from the initial submission date.
Please note that students are required to get 50% for every test to pass. This is a significant difference to school where in some learning areas students are only required to achieve 35% to pass. If a student fails a project, they will be required to pay a R50 re-submission fee before they will be able to re-do the project/test. The fee goes up by R50 every 30 days, from the date that the project was initially due.
Students will be expected to clean up the mess that they make in the lecture rooms. Brooms and dustbins are provided for this purpose. The term housekeeping is taken from the curriculum and is related to safety and hygiene (and of course - consideration) in the workspace. Cleaning will be limited to the working space and the results of their participation in the lesson – threads, fabric off cuts, pattern board cuttings, etc. The students are expected to clean up as they would if working at home. Failure to do so will be taken as contravention of SEWAFRICA rules and dealt with accordingly.
There is a break room in SEWAFRICA. Students are requested to clear their rubbish and keep noise levels down as other classes may be in progress. There are several places in the area where students can purchase food. Students may only eat and drink in the break room. No food or drink is allowed anywhere else in the building.
Use of Cellphones
Use of cell phones is not permitted during class time. Students may not make or receive calls or messages. Students may not use their cell phone to play music. If a student is found using a cell phone, they may be asked to leave and may be subject to disciplinary action. Cell phones can only be used in the break room and cannot be charged, using a plug point, ANYWHERE in SEWAFRICA.
SEWAFRICA cannot accept responsibility for loss or damage to student property, it is the student’s responsibility to take care of their own possessions. Students must collect their work and personal belongings from lockers and storerooms by the first Saturday in December. Students’ belongings not collected by then will be forfeited.
Monthly statements or invoices will not be issued. By signing, parents/guardians/sponsors agree to make monthly payments. Students who have not paid by the date agreed in this application will be suspended and denied access to classrooms and will not be permitted to write tests. Students will only have access to the finance office to discuss the fee payment arrangements.
Building Access Cards
Students will not be permitted to enter the college unless they have their student card. If a student loses their card, they must inform the office immediately and pay R50 for a new card.
Policy for Withdrawal from Course
If a student is unable to continue their studies at SEWAFRICA for whatever reason the student must give written notification of one full calendar month (one full calendar months’ notice means that notice is received on the 1st working day of the month). Please note that the instalment will still be due for the months’ notice as explained below. If notification is not received in writing the fees are still due on the 1st of the month. Example: If you give written notice on the 1st of September the last payment for September is still due. The fees are due whether the student attends class in the month of September or not. However, if written notice is received after the 1st working day of the month (2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc) then the final payment will be made in the following month i.e 1st of October. Withdrawal of a cash option student the account is converted to instalment option and the one month’s notice provision outlined above is applicable. A R 200 administration fee is applicable for any refunds, irrespective of the amount to be refunded, therefore no refunds will be processed for under R 200.
Grade 11 is the minimum entrance requirement for this course. However, adults who are paying their own fees, and who feel they will be able to cope, we will accept. Students who are not paying their own fees would need to submit a letter from the fee payer stating that they understand the minimum entrance requirements.
I understand the contents of the code. I agree to abide by the code essentials outlined above and policies of SEWAFRICA.
