Anglo American and Department of Basic Education to launch education programme to improve learners’ outcomes, 11 April 2018

On Friday, 13 April 2018, Anglo American and the Department of Basic Education will launch a holistic education programme to improve learners’ outcomes in schools local to Anglo American’s operations in South Africa.

The Anglo American South Africa Education Programme will focus on 100 early childhood development (ECD) sites and a “Whole School” systemic approach for 100 selected primary and secondary schools.

This programme is one of the first initiatives under Anglo American’s Sustainability Strategy, which was launched last month. One of the pillars of the strategy is to create thriving communities close to its operations, with education as a key building block.

It has been developed in partnership with the Department of Basic Education, and complements the Department’s 2019 action plan—Towards the Realisation of Schooling 2030—which details strategies that aim to improve the performance of South Africa’s schooling system.  

The launch will feature Anglo American South Africa’s Deputy Chairman, Norman Mbazima, and the Minister of Basic Education, Angie Motshekga, as the two keynote speakers.

Details of the launch of the programme are as follows:

Date:        Friday, 13 April 2018
Time:       08:30 – 13:00
Venue:    Ivory Park Secondary School, Riverside Road, Ivory Park
