The current phase of SEVA is focused on FET learner support in critical learning areas such as Maths, Accounting, English, Physical Sciences and Life Sciences.

The content of these learning areas is extracted from Geleza Nathi our Educational Tv program, that airs on SABC 1, Mon-Fri from 05:00-06:00, then repurposed for e-learning.
