BACKGROUND

CHAL NTI was established in 1999 to monitor and implement the curricula; to enforce proper adherence to the academic standards of nursing education in affiliation with the National University of Lesotho's faculty of Health Sciences; ensure adherence to standards set by the Regulatory bodies such as the Lesotho Nursing Council and Council of Higher Education.

Christian Health Association of Lesotho Nurses Training Institutions (CHAL NTIs) Intake for the academic year 2021/2022.

All the four NTIs have an intake of new students in 2021/2022 academic year. The intake was however, selected from the previous year’s (2020) applications as they (CHAL NTIs), did not have intake then due to the advent of COVID 19 pandemic. The reasons for selecting from the 2020 applications are;



  • 1. To absorb the backlog of 2020 applicants as there was no intake of new students in 2020/2021 academic year.

  • 2. That, 2020/2021 academic year was prolonged by the effects of COVID 19, which in turns delayed other processes such as examinations and the release of results. Therefore, intake of new students was not possible in 2020/2021 academic year, due to limited capacity in terms of resources. Completion of studies were delayed, therefore, there was no space for new students at CHAL NTIs.

  • 3. Additionally, the LGCSE results were released in May 2021 which is already late for new applications to be processed, as the admission processes were already underway and completed in some schools.

It is worth to note that; Council on Higher Education (CHE) and Ministry of Education and Training (MoET) sensitized the Institutions of Higher learning about the challenge of the applications backlog due to disruptions caused by COVID-19 and teachers strike on LGCSE teaching and learning processes and made recommendations. The schools collectively then clearly communicated (in writing) these three reasons mentioned above as their plan, in response.
