Mr Hubert Mathanzima Mweli, Director-General for Basic Education, recently visited various provinces on the second round of provincial engagements.
The provincial engagement programme was introduced to the education system to strengthen the collaboration and support between the Department of Basic Education and the Provincial Education Departments as the system works collectively towards the delivery of quality education in South Africa. The engagement is also used to monitor the progress made by provinces in terms of improving effective curriculum coverage in schools across the country and to discuss the state of readiness for the 2017 National Senior Certificate (NSC) Examinations, whilst exploring better mechanisms for improving quality learning and teaching in schools.
As at 05 September 2017, all nine provinces have been visited. In this week’s Thuto we feature Mr Mweli’s engagements with the Free State, Mpumalanga, Northern Cape and Limpopo Provinces.
