The Institutional Course for Newly-appointed Lecturers (ICNL) is a compulsory course for all academic staff and is completed during the first year of appointment. This course consists of two phases: Phase 1, offered at the Institutional Office in Potchefstroom, and Phase 2 offered by CTL on campus. Phase 2 is year-long campus-based induction programme.
This course gives lecturers the opportunity to demonstrate their proficiency in areas that relate directly to teaching, learning, and assessment in Higher Education. After completing ICNL, lecturers receive a Certificate of Completion which is often a prerequisite for participating in other initiatives.
