SABC Education and NEMISA Bursary

SABC Education and The National Electronic Media Institute of South Africa (NEMISA) offer Bursary opportunities to the value of R1 500 000.00

Students interested in a career in electronic media stand a chance to win a share of R1 500 000.00 worth of bursaries for studies in animation, graphic design, television and radio production through a partnership between SABC Education and NEMISA.

SABC Education is always looking for opportunities to assist learners in making a success of their career.  This partnership offers incredible opportunities for learners in the broadcasting environment.  To qualify for application of bursaries you need a Matric/Grade 12 / NQF level 4 related qualifications.

NEMISA has been training young people from diverse backgrounds since the year 2000. This started with training students on a fulltime basis in the areas of Television and Radio production, with just under 40 students a year. The students primarily came from disadvantaged backgrounds with emphasis on women who made up at least 60% of the student population.  NEMISA has grown over the years and now produces more than 870 graduates a year, the learners are trained in Television Production, Radio Production, Animation and Graphic Design; MAPPP SETA accredits these programmes.

In 2009 NEMISA awarded bursaries to the value of R 1 000 000 through the partnership with SABC Education. The recipients of the bursaries came from all provinces through this bursary scheme.  The TV and radio bursary recipients will be graduating in December 2010 while recipients in Animation and Graphic Design will be graduating in two years time. NEMISA graduates hold key positions in big media houses.

Nemisa Open Day

The National Electronic Media Institute of South Africa – NEMISA came into being as an institution of education and learning, specializing in teaching the production and technical skills applicable to the TV, radio and broadcasting industries. Formed as part of a government initiative in 1998, its fundamental purpose was to train previously disadvantaged individuals, particularly women, and equip them with the skills necessary to play significant roles in the broadcasting environment. NEMISA operates from a modern office and studio complex centrally situated in Parktown, Johannesburg.

Now, it is clear, that with the ongoing evolution of technologies, new priorities have emerged, for which new types of creator-technicians are required. These individuals are critical to South Africa’s role in the digital age, and in order to provide these talents NEMISA will itself have to change, radically, adopting a new mandate and moulding a new NEMISA.

The newly revitalized institute will now offer meaningful, targeted, relevant coursework covering the entire spectrum of the production activities serving the converging technologies for digital content production. It will offer training in all the disciplines essential in the emerging world where video, sound, graphics, animation, telephony and data meet in the merger of computers, satellites, television and Internet. It is this mix of communications matter that is broadly labelled “Convergence”, and which holds the key to a large part of our future.
