The Deputy Minister of Higher Education and Training, Mr Mduduzi Manana, MP, will launch the 2017 Apply Now/Khetha Career Guidance Campaign by visiting three schools in Ga-Segonyana Local Municipality in Kuruman, in the Province of the Northern Cape, on Friday, 17 March 2017.
The Apply Now/Khetha Career Guidance Campaign is aimed at encouraging secondary school learners to apply on time for admission to post-school institutions and thus avert possible stampedes and long queues that take place at the beginning of each academic year. The Career Guidance component of the campaign seeks to inform learners about career choices available within the post-school sector.
The roll-out of the campaign is targeted at far-flung and often neglected rural areas, villages and townships to ensure that learners in those areas make informed career choices.
The Deputy Minister will have a conversation with learners from Grade 09 to 12 and further promote the “100 Occupations in high demand” list released by the Minister in 2014.
Members of the media are invited to the school visits scheduled as follows:
Date: Friday, 17 March 2017
1. KP Toto Technical and Commercial Secondary School, Bathlaro (08:00 – 09:30)
2. Galaletsang Science High School, Mothibistad (10:30 – 11:45)
