Through the Second Chance Programme, the Department of Basic Education is inviting all candidates who have previously not met the requirements of the National Senior Certificate as well as those currently in matric to take advantage of the specially designed #SecondChance Matric Support Programme.
The Read to Lead Campaign was officially launched in 2015 with the aim to improve the reading habits amongst all South African children. The Campaign is geared towards helping to ensure that all learners are able to demonstrate age appropriate levels of reading by 2019. It provides teachers and schools with clear directives on the Department’s expectations of achieving the expected levels of performance.
Some of the following stakeholders that will also exhibit their programmes at the roadshow include the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) who will give career guidance and Vodacom who will exhibit the e-School and how to register for free and access the programmes available to learners for free.
