WC CoP Meeting 1: The importance of After School in narrowing the opportunity gap

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. We know that many matriculants continue to fail or do badly in their final year of school, which further widens the opportunity gap for young people.

Our next CoP will focus on making the link between the opportunity gap with After School programmes (or extended learning/support for in-school learners). Our speakers will talk us through their personal experience working with learners and what ASPs can do to address this gap. We will explore the link between the quality of learners coming out of the schooling system and whether they are well prepared for post-school and what ASPs can do to improve on this preparation.

Join us on Wednesday 27 February, 9am - 1pm
