is it the same difference between accounting for schooling, and accounting for business practice in industry?
a) Dip Tech Voc and Teaching ;
b) BEd TVT
c) Adv Dip TVT
a) This crisis was political (black people had no access).
b) It was also economic (sanctions, 0% growth in 1977).
c) The crisis was deepened by the policy changes in relation to parastatals: (Transnet, Iscor, Armscor).
A change in the discourse (apprenticeship to learnership) and a change of policy are worthy beginnings, but school leavers do not access the FET colleges. As Wedekind notes (2013, 7) Grade 9 never led learners to FET colleges and 90% of SA learners are in the FET.
The GET remains invisible as an alternative path. And, learnerships are hard to come by.
It is also clear that old models (the NATED courses) are no longer appropriate to the changed context. A ministerial committee has undertaken to review the GET band and the articulation with the FET sector.
