Emperors Palace, Convention Centre, 64 Jones Road, Kempton Park, Gauteng
08:30 for 09:00-16:30

In terms of the Basic Education Accord, all stakeholders in education are encouraged to work together, to make far-reaching and dramatic improvements to the education system. The principle of partnerships is emphasised by the National Development Plan (NDP). The Department of Basic Education (DBE) has produced an Action Plan (2014) as overarching strategy. There are a number of other initiatives that tackle SA’s education woes in a holistic and inclusive manner, rather than, e.g. working on a few selected schools at a time, or on improving the teaching and learning of particular subjects only. During this NSTF discussion forum, we will be hearing about projects which implement the principles of partnerships and collaboration, in a manner that can be rolled out to the entire country, in order to effect substantial change, and lift our country out of the education quagmire that it has been in for far too long.
