Education

Education, best described as the process of imparting or receiving knowledge, is one of the highest priorities on the global agenda. Across the world, governments and organised groups are working to eradicate illiteracy in order to emancipate impoverished people groups. Education can take place in formal and informal settings, however, schools and learning institutions are the primary mediums through which people receive an education in modern society. Reading and writing are the foundations of formal education. “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” - Nelson Mandela.

A public-private partnership with government aims to encourage long-term savings for education, as well as access to Further Education Training (FET) colleges and universities. The scheme will see the state match the regular monthly savings that parents invest for their children?s education at university or FET college.

Education Minister Naledi Pandor has announced that 22 000 students have so far registered for the new National Certificate (Vocational) at public FET Colleges. This is against a target of 27 000 that the Department has for these new programmes.

The North West Education Department is to replace the management at Taletso College?s Mafikeng campus, as it failed to register last year?s students on time
