The Western Cape Education Department announced their grade 12 results in early January, revealing a slight drop in the overall pass rate, a higher number of bachelor passes, a higher failure rate, as well as a lower drop-out of grade 10 to 12 learners from the system. But what do these results mean in practice? And what is the importance and relevance of matric results, particularly in the context of huge inequality and youth unemployment in South Africa.
Our speakers will talk us through their After School programme results, share their experience of young people with and without the matric qualification and touch on some barriers to accessing tertiary education and entering the formal economy when one does not have matric.
Join us on Wednesday 27 February, 9am - 1pm
8 Mzala Street (Corner of Mzala & Julius Tsholo Streets)
