Gr 12 ePortal ( online tools and resources)

The Western Cape Education Department (WCED) ePortal ( is a platform that provides learners, teachers and parents with online tools and resources to offer learners opportunities to improve their educational results and throughput and to guide them to integrate into a technology-driven society and job market.

The WCED requires continuous updates in terms of the ePortal to expand functionality and to make it work optimally for users. One brand new feature is the Learner Space.

After registering on the ePortal learners in the Further Education and Training band (FET) will receive relevant digital content pushed to their profiles by the subject senior curriculum planners according to their subject choices.  This functionality will eliminate the need for expensive and time-consuming searching, but rather provide learners with relevant local eResources as per CAPS standards and requirements.

The site home ribbon now displays two new functions, namely “My Dashboard” and “My Profile”.  Grade 12 learners are reminded that past National Senior Certificate (NSC) examination papers with memorandums can be accessed in the Learner Space: My Dashboard to be used in preparation for their final examination.
