1. FOREWORD BY THE MINISTERS OF EDUCATION

The Strategic Plan was adopted by the former Minister of Education, shortly before the end of the previous administration.

There has been a restructuring of the Ministry of Education resulting in a division between Higher Education and Basic Education, and assigning certain activities, especially training to
the new Minister of Higher Education. An obvious consequence of this would be a restructuring and realignment of the MTSF, including the budget, personnel and organogram.

Furthermore, more significantly, the MTSF will be influenced by the National Spatial Framework of the New Administration which may have the effect of reprioritising some of the strategic
priorities that the new and separate Ministries of Education will have.

As the budget is informed by the strategic choices, we submit the MTSF as an interim document that will be reviewed and realigned through the available instruments.

When the 164 members of UNESCO met in Dakar in 2000, they committed themselves to six Education for All goals, popularly called the EFA goals, which are to be achieved by the year
2015. We are half-way there. In November last year we met again in Dakar to assess how far we have come and what still needs to be done to achieve the targets set.

We are at present in an intermediate position with ten other countries in sub-Saharan Africa, mainly because our EFA Development Index value was pulled down by a low adult literacy
rate.1 The EFA goals have a significant impact on our Strategic Plan.

The first of the six EFA goals is “to expand and improve comprehensive early childhood care and education, especially for the most vulnerable and disadvantaged children”.

Few of us need to be convinced of the importance of early learning and care. Many studies have shown the benefits of early education programmes: subsequent repetition rates are lower,
language development is greater, and primary school completion rates are higher for children who have had access to early development programmes.

We aim to provide early childhood care and education for all young children in South Africa. Working in partnership with provincial governments, in 2005 we designed an integrated plan
that expands the provision of early childhood education at pre-schools and in Grade R classrooms. The departments involved in this implementation are Health, Education, and Social
Development.

The second EFA goal is to ensure that “all children, particularly girls, children in difficult circumstances, and those belonging to ethnic minorities, have access to, and complete, free and
compulsory primary education of good quality”.

This is the universal primary education goal. We have reached universal primary enrolment, and have enrolment rates of nearly 90% in our secondary schools.

The third EFA goal is to ensure “that the learning needs of all young people and adults are met through equitable access to appropriate learning and life-skills programmes”.



1 “The EFA Development Index (EDI) is a composite measure of a country’s situation with regard to attaining the EFA agenda. It was introduced in the 2003/4 EFA Global Monitoring Report and is updated annually. Ideally, it should
include measures of all six EFA goals, but for now it focuses on the four most easily quantified: UPE, adult literacy, gender parity and equality, and education quality, each measured on the basis of one indicator.” Global Monitoring
Report, 2008, Education for All by 2015: Will we make it? Regional Overview: sub-Saharan Africa.


                                                                                                                   7
This is the lifelong learning goal. Merger processes have been completed in universities and further education and training colleges, and our attention is now directed at the quality and
relevance of their programmes and governance. Under the Strategic Plan these two sectors are better funded than before. Over the next five years we intend to increase both access and
throughput in these two sectors, revamp and significantly expand the college sector.

Training in scarce skills areas, such as engineering, science and business have been incentivised. Added to this focus is the target of producing quality teachers for our schools and colleges
through the Funza Lushaka Bursary Scheme, as well as quality professionals in the fields of health, agriculture and the creative arts.
The fourth goal is to achieve “a 50 per cent improvement in levels of adult literacy by 2015, especially for women, and equitable access to basic and continuing education for all
adults”.

We have committed R6,1-billion to a mass adult literacy campaign to run from 2008 to 2012. We have 9,6 million adult illiterate people. Half have never been to school, and half
dropped out of school before grade seven. The first part of the campaign is intended to reach the first group of the 4,7 million unschooled, and to do so by training and employing 80,000
tutors.

The fifth goal is to “eliminate gender disparities in primary and secondary education by 2005, and achieve gender equality in education by 2015, with a focus on ensuring girls’ full and
equal access to and achievement in basic education of good quality”.

We have achieved gender parity. In fact, girls now make up a majority in our secondary schools and universities. We will intensify actions and increase the visibility of our efforts towards
the elimination of all forms of discrimination, including discrimination based on race and gender.

The sixth goal is to improve “all aspects of the quality of education and ensure excellence of all so that recognized and measurable learning outcomes are achieved by all, especially in
literacy, numeracy and essential life skills”.

The QIDS-UP strategy is a quality improvement strategy for schools in poor and deprived communities. It aims to improve teaching and learning to address key academic skills. Its focus
is on improving reading, writing and numeracy from Grade R to Grade 12. It involves the provision of schools with appropriate human and material resources, including reading and
reference books, as well as support staff to assist teachers. Using reliable data generated by the National Education Information Management System (NEIMS), provinces will provide all
QIDS-UP strategy schools with libraries and science laboratories.

Schools will receive additional support in the gateway subjects (accounting, mathematics and science) in order to prepare for growth in the number of learners studying these subjects
under the new national senior certificate written for the first time in 2008. The sector will ensure that all schools are able to offer mathematics and science teaching and learning by suitably
qualified teachers, as well as the necessary facilities and resources.

We commend this Strategic Plan for 2009 to 2013 to Parliament, and to the people of South Africa.




Mrs Angie Motshekga, MP                                                                               Dr BE Nzimande, MP

                                               Legislative Mandates
                                                     Strategic Plan 2009 - 2013 and operational Plans for 2009 - 2010



2. LEGISLATIVE MANDATES

Since 1994, a number of policies have been implemented and legislation promulgated to create a framework for transformation in education and training. A summary of key policies and
legislation follows:


1.   The Constitution of the Republic of South Africa (1996), which requires education to be transformed and democratised in accordance with the values of human dignity, equality,
     human rights and freedom, non-racism and non-sexism. It guarantees access to basic education for all, with the provision that everyone has the right to basic education, including
     adult basic education. The fundamental policy framework of the Ministry of Education is stated in the Ministry’s first White Paper: Education and Training in a Democratic South Africa:
     First Steps to Develop a New System, February 1995. This document adopted as its point of departure the 1994 education policy framework of the African National Congress. After
     extensive consultation, negotiations and revision, it was approved by Cabinet and has served as a fundamental reference for subsequent policy and legislative development.


2.   The National Education Policy Act (NEPA) (1996) was designed to inscribe into law the policies, as well as the legislative and monitoring responsibilities of the Minister of Education,
     as well as to formalise the relations between national and provincial authorities. It laid the foundation for the establishment of the Council of Education Ministers (CEM), as well as the
     Heads of Education Departments Committee (HEDCOM), as inter-governmental forums that will collaborate in the development of a new education system. As such, it provides for
     the formulation of national policy in general, and further education and training policies for, inter alia, curriculum, assessment and language, as well as for quality assurance. NEPA
     embodies the principle of cooperative governance, elaborated upon in Schedule Three of the Constitution.


3.   The South African Schools Act (SASA) (1996) promotes access, quality and democratic governance in the schooling system. It ensures that all learners have right of access to quality
     education without discrimination, and it makes schooling compulsory for children aged 7 to 14. It provides for two types of schools, namely independent schools and public schools.
     The provision in the Act for democratic school governance, via school governing bodies, is now in place in public schools countrywide. The school funding norms, outlined in SASA,
     prioritise redress and target poverty with regard to the allocation of funds for the public schooling system. SASA has been amended by the Education Laws Amendment Act No. 24
     of 2005, so as to authorise the declaration of schools in poverty-stricken areas as “no fee schools” and by the Education Laws Amendment Act No. 31 of 2007 to provide among
     others for the functions and responsibilities of school principals, and matters pertaining to the control of substance abuse and other matters related thereto.


4.   The Further Education and Training Act (1998), Education White Paper 4 on Further Education and Training (1998), and the National Strategy for Further Education and Training
     (1999-2001). The latter provides the basis for the development of a nationally coordinated further education and training system, comprising the senior secondary component of
     schooling and Further Education and Training (FET) colleges. It requires the FET institutions, established in terms of the new legislation, to develop institutional plans, while making
     provision for programme-based funding and a national curriculum for learning and teaching.


5.   The Higher Education Act (1997) provides for a unified and nationally planned system of higher education. It furthermore gave the green light for a statutory Council for Higher


                                                                                              11
     Education (CHE), which advises the Minister, while accepting responsibility for quality assurance and promotion. The Higher Education Act and Education White Paper 3: A
     Programme for the Transformation of Higher Education (1999) formed the basis for the transformation of the higher education sector, with implementation being regulated by the
     National Plan for Higher Education (2001).


6.   A whole spectrum of legislation, including the Employment of Educators Act (1998), to regulate the professional, moral and ethical responsibilities of educators, as well as the
     competency requirements for teachers. One Act of Parliament and one professional council, namely the South African Council of Educators (SACE), now govern the historically divided
     teaching force.


7.   The Adult Basic Education and Training Act (ABET) (2000) provides for the establishment of public and private adult learning centres, funding for ABET, the governance of public
     centres, as well as quality assurance mechanisms for this sector.


8.   The South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) Act (1995) provides for the establishment of the National Qualifications Framework (NQF), which forms the scaffolding for a
     national learning system that integrates education and training at all levels. The joint launch of the Human Resources Development Strategy by the Minister of Labour and the Minister
     of Education on 23 April 2001 reinforces the resolve to establish an integrated education, training and development strategy that will harness the potential of our adult learners.
     The design of the NQF has been refined with the publication of “The Higher Education Qualifications Framework” in the Government Gazette No 928, 5 October 2007 to provide
     ten (10) levels of the NQF. The school and college level qualifications occupy levels 1 to 4 as in the original formulation, with plans to accommodate some of the college level
     qualifications at Level 5. Higher Education qualifications in the new formulation of the NQF occupy six levels, levels 5 to 10. Levels 5 - 7 are under-graduate and levels 8 - 10 are
     post-graduate.


9.   Curriculum 2005 (C2005) embodies the vision for general education to move away from a racist, apartheid, rote model of learning and teaching, to a liberating, nation-building,
     and learner-centred outcomes-based initiative. In line with training strategies, the reformulation is intended to allow greater mobility between different levels and between institutional
     sites, as well as to promote the integration of knowledge and skills through learning pathways. Its assessment, qualifications, competency and skills-based framework encourage the
     development of curriculum models that are aligned to the NQF in theory and practice.


10. The Education White Paper on Early Childhood Development (2000) provides for the expansion and full participation of 5-year-olds in pre-school reception grade education by
     2010, as well as for an improvement in the quality of programmes, curricula and teacher development for 0 to 4-year-olds and 6 to 9-year-olds.


11. Education White Paper 6 on Inclusive Education (2001) describes the intent of the Department of Education to implement inclusive education at all levels in the system by 2020.
     Such an inclusive system will facilitate the inclusion of vulnerable learners and reduce the barriers to learning, via targeted support structures and mechanisms, which will improve the
     retention of learners in the education system, particularly those learners who are prone to dropping out.

12. The General and Further Education and Training Quality Assurance Act, Act 58 of 2001, provides for the establishment of uMalusi, which is responsible for the provision of quality
     assurance in general and further education and training, issuing certificates at the various exit points, control over norms and standards of curricula and assessment, as well as
     conducting actual assessment.


13. The National Student Financial Aid Scheme Act (NSFAS) (Act 56 of 1999) provides for the granting of loans and bursaries to eligible students at public higher education institutions,
     as well as the administration of such loans and bursaries.


14. The Further Education and Training Colleges Act, 2006 (Act 16 of 2006) provides for the regulation of further education and training, the establishment of governance and funding
     of public further education and training colleges, in Further Education and training, the registration of private further education and training colleges and the promotion of quality in
     further education and training.




                                                                                             13

Strategic Plan 2009 - 2013 and operational Plans for 2009 - 2010




      Introduction by the Director-General
           and the Acting Director-General
                                                      Strategic Plan 2009 - 2013 and operational Plans for 2009 - 2010


4. INTRODUCTION BY THE DIRECTOR-GENERAL AND ACTING DIRECTOR-GENERAL

Over the past decade we have seen the development of many new policies in various sectors of our education system. These have been aimed at transforming our system and fostering
redress to ensure that quality education is increasingly available to all our people. Our focus in this second decade is to ensure the full and effective implementation of those policies that
have been seen to work, and to review and refine those that have not. Our purpose remains unchanged, but our strategies must always be responsive to changing circumstances.


Our plans are strongly guided by the priorities of government, in particular the goal to reduce poverty and unemployment. We will do this by contributing to the development of a citizenry
which has the necessary knowledge, skills and attitudes to participate in the economic and social development of South Africa.


In the period ahead, covered by this Strategic Plan, we are going to strengthen the monitoring and evaluation of education, so as to ensure that all elements of the system are subjected
to rigorous scrutiny. We will use evidence provided by our own research, as well as by other agencies, both locally and internationally, to improve the quality of education. In so doing, we
will be making a contribution to the development of South Africa, the SADC region, and the African continent as a whole.


Our work is of necessity carried out in close collaboration with provincial departments of education, as well as with a range of other government departments, educational institutions,
NGOs and social partners. We will seek to improve the coordination of education development activities, and build active partnerships with all of these important role-players.


Our departmental priorities are determined by the overarching goal of the Minister: to ensure quality education for all and the advancement of the Millennium Development Goals. In
many areas, we can confidently claim that we are ready to excel, by building on the foundations that have been laid in the first decade. In this, we will contribute to the “season of hope”
that the country has entered.


On issues of access, we will continue with initiatives to expand educational opportunities for young children, youths and adults. We will continue to expand access to Grade R, and we will
also ensure that government services reach children younger than five years of age, through an integrated plan involving three state Departments. ABET will also be extended, with a focus
on basic literacy and numeracy, as well as the development of relevant skills amongst adults. Our focus on adult literacy initiatives will be hugely strengthened through the expansion of
the highly successful “Kha Ri Gude” Mass Literacy Campaign.


In schools, the further expansion of “no fee schools”, and the strengthening of fee exemption regulations, should help to ensure that no child is excluded from schooling due to financial
constraints. We will continue to subsidise public Further Education and Training Colleges, and provide bursaries for deserving students, to ensure that we deliver on the need for intermediate
skills in South Africa. And for higher education, substantial increases to the block grant and to the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) will assist thousands of academically
deserving students to attend university.


The emphasis on quality is uppermost in our minds as we expand access to education. Quality includes learning outcomes, but we must not neglect the need to improve social cohesion


                                                                                             21
and promote national identity. Some of the basic requisites for improved learning outcomes are adequate infrastructure, facilities and learning resources in schools, and the Department
will continue to implement the QIDS-UP strategy over the next five years to ensure that even our poorest schools have what they need to offer quality education.


We will continue with the implementation of the National Policy Framework for Teacher Education and Development, and intensify our recruitment programme for new entrants into the
teaching profession. To this end, the Funza Lushaka Bursary Scheme will continue to provide bursaries to student teachers in scarce skill areas. Teachers already in service will be assisted
to ensure that our younger children can read, write and calculate, and that, while they initially learn through the medium of their home language, they also develop the ability to learn in
another language.


Initiatives currently under development include defining the organisation, role and functions of education districts, and setting up a National Education Evaluation and Development Unit
(NEEDU). We will continue monitoring and evaluating the impact of all that we do, so as to ensure that we achieve the outcomes we expect. Education departments, both national and
provincial, will be assessed in accordance with their strategic objectives. Districts and district managers will be assessed in terms of the performance of schools in their Districts. School
principals and teachers will be held to account for what happens in their schools. Our country and our children deserve the best and we cannot be content with mediocrity, with uncommitted
officials and teachers, and with poor learning outcomes. We have the ability, as a country, to do so much better. The full implementation of this Strategic Plan will set us on the path to a
high-quality education system, with a place for all.

5      FIVE-YEAR BROAD PRIORITIES

The Minister set five broad priorities at the beginning of the current term of government to focus the work of the Department on its mandate. The first priority addresses poverty in schools; the
second addresses skills shortages; the third deals with quality improvement; the fourth deals with the issue of health in education; and the last priority deals with institutional development.
The Department performs its activities taking into account these priorities to contribute towards an accelerated and shared growth initiative in a developing state. The broad priorities
are:


1.     Dealing with poverty
This priority focuses on reducing financial costs/ burden from parents in their endeavour to provide quality education to their children, to improve access to quality education and to give
effect to the right to education through the exemption and elimination of school fees. The following areas will be strengthened as our contribution to the war on poverty:


       1.1. the further declaration of “no fee schools”;
       1.2. expansion of the National Schools Nutrition Programme (NSNP) to secondary schools, to improve learner performance and retention through feeding scheme programmes,
            school garden projects to supplement nutrition in schools, and other community-based schemes to feed learners; and
       1.3. enhanced rural education, especially to marginalised rural communities; including other government departments and partnerships with organisations working in rural
            education to deliver on this priority.
       1.4. the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS), providing bursaries to students in colleges and universities.


2.     Skills development
In order to address skills shortages, the Department will continue to adopt and implement policies to accelerate growth initiatives through:


       2.1. Higher Education, including a managed expansion of the system in targeted areas, and additional resources to support these.


       2.2. Further Education and Training (FET), in which the thrust will be on the functioning of the recapitalized FET Colleges, ensuring increased access to technical and vocational
            education. The Dinaledi Programme will continue to ensure special attention and support to selected schools offering Mathematics and Science in all provinces.


       2.3. Adult Basic Education and Training (ABET), where we have planned to increase the participation in skills building and to increase enrolment in the formal ABET levels 1
            to 4 programmes. It will include the further implementation of the mass literacy strategy to expand the provision of basic literacy programmes for adults, out of school
            youths, vulnerable children and females
            Their work is supported by the formation of partnerships, primarily with SETAs, to deliver the accelerated skills development projects in agriculture, building and construction
            industry, and hospitality skills to promote skills building and lifelong learning.


                                                                                                 25
     2.4. Human Resource Development

             The Department is leading the implementation of the National Human Resource Development Strategy (NHRDS) on behalf of government, and will oversee the implementation
             of the National Qualification Framework (NQF) Act in support of the HHRDS.


3.   Quality Improvement
The Department has implemented the National Curriculum Statement (NCS) in all Grades, in which Life Orientation and Mathematics are compulsory for all learners. It has also
implemented the Integrated Quality Management System (IQMS) amongst educators and is conducting systemic evaluations against national standards.


There has been significant improvement in infrastructure, including water and sanitation. There has also been an improvement of data collection and capturing has enhanced quality
decision making in the education sector, and relationships with the Departments of Water Affairs and Forestry and Public Works have accelerated infrastructure provision to schools.


4.   Health and education
This will focus on improving the state of health and wellness of educators and learners, and includes physical education and extra-mural sport activities. Placing emphasis on the Life Skills
Programme to promote healthy lifestyles among educators and learners.


5.   Institutional development
In this area, the finalisation of policy on the roles and responsibilities of provincial and district management structures will assist in their endeavour to support schools to deliver quality
education.

Key policy issues and programmatic thrust of plans

Over the next period, the following will be the Branch’s main programmatic and policy interventions:
•	 Developing policy, national norms and standards, as well as a Basic Minimum Package (BMP) for the provision of school infrastructure.
•	 Strengthening the National Education Management Information System (NEMIS), so as to enhance planning and monitoring, as well as the development of Learner Unit Record
     Information Tracking System (LURITS).
•	 Analysing and reporting on education expenditure and investment, as well as promoting optimal budgeting processes to ensure access, equity and redress.
•	 Ensuring effective and efficient labour relations, as well as the development of education staff, so as to improve the quality of teaching and learning in South Africa.
•	 Analysing and reporting on education human resources requirements and capacity as well as developing an education human resource information system.
•	 Developing and monitoring an evaluation framework for reporting on service delivery in education, including responses to global initiatives, such as the Education for All Programme
     and the Millennium Development Goals.
•	 Developing and maintaining funding norms and standards for all sub-systems in the education system.
•	 Establishing a national educator recruitment, selection and placement “agency” or “unit”.
•	 Piloting the National Education Evaluation and Development Unit (NEEDU).
•	 Conducting situation and needs analyses of the education planning functions in the education system and to recommend how to deal with any capacity gaps.

While the Strategic Plan outlines the five year objectives of the Branch, the following key priorities will be attended to in the 2009/10 financial year.

1.   Human resources will remain the most important instrument in ensuring the provision of quality education. In this financial year the management and development of human resources
     will continue to receive added attention, by:
     a. setting up systems, frameworks and tools to assist in ensuring that all education institutions are adequately staffed with appropriately skilled educators;
     b. developing a draft system for the recruitment, selection and placement of teachers in public schools through a “national recruitment agency”;
     c.    maintaining the Educator Human Resource Plan and database to update the profiles of educators;



                                                                                              36
                                                     Strategic Plan 2009 - 2013 and operational Plans for 2009 - 2010

     d.   monitoring the provision of incentives towards improving the recruitment of teachers by Provinces;
     e.   evaluating the pilot post allocation system and consider implementation to scale if necessary;
     f.   implementing the “teacher, one computer” initiative;
     g.   maintaining the development of the Educator Human Resource Management Information;
     h.   Continue expanding and improving the educator performance systems of IQMS, and establish the National Education Evaluation Unit.

2.   Physical resources, policies, norms and standards, funding and delivery mechanisms for quality education, especially school infrastructure such as provision of water, sanitation,
     suitable classrooms and essential specialist rooms such as libraries and laboratories, as well sport and recreation facilities and Grade R facilities will receive urgent attention. This
     will be done by:
     a. implementing the school infrastructure policy, norms and standards and delivery mechanism if the proposals are approved after the public consultation process;
     b. finalising the policy for learner transport and hostel provisioning.

3.   Managing funding resources through funding policy will receive continued attention in this financial year. This will be done by:
     a. continuing support in the implementation of the funding norms by the other line branches in the DoE and PEDs;
     b. continuing to monitor and take corrective action in the implementation of the norms;
     c.  undertaking a major review of the funding norms to deal with innovative funding mechanisms, providing rewards and development funds based on the performance of schools,
         ensuring the schools that perform are given the capacity and the functions to be able self-manage, while ensuring that struggling schools are supported to improve;
     d. supporting the finalization of the funding norms for inclusive education and special schools after the audit and study by the relevant branch in the DoE.

4.   Ensuring that relevant, accurate, reliable and timely information is available for management decision making. This will be done by.
     a. continuing the expansion of the South African Schools Administration System (SA-SAMS);
     b. continuing the success of the development of a learner unit record information tracking system (LURITS). The LURITS system will be operational by March 2010;
     c.   strengthening EMIS policy to ensure efficacy of the system;
     d. setting up a GIS functionality, and making it operational.

5.   It is imperative to monitor and evaluate (M&E) a number of key education interventions to take any necessary corrections. The M&E framework will be implemented and a number
     of reports will be produced.

6    Complete a meta-analysis of the fifteen review (?) and recommend the next five year and twenty year perspective for the education system.

7    The National Human Resource Development Strategy for South Africa will be implemented by setting up the necessary structures and beginning key activities.

8    Legal and legislative services will assist with amendments to the relevant education laws, and in drafting regulations. Provinces will also be supported and monitored in regard to legal
     and legislative services.

STRATEGIC PRIORITIES

The goals of the Branch are to:
•	 increase the numbers of FET learners, achieving high levels of language, mathematics and science proficiency;
•	 develop and implement modern, relevant and high-level curricula and programmes in schools offering Grades 10 to 12, as well as in FET colleges;
•	 implement a national examination system for the National Senior Certificate in schools, as well as National Certificate (Vocational) in Colleges;
•	 increase the participation and success rates of persons in the age group 16 to 24 in relevant, high-quality FET programmes;
•	 develop effective systems, structures, funding norms and human resources for Grades 10 to 12 in schools, as well as programmes for FET colleges;
•	 monitor and evaluate the delivery of programmes for FET colleges; and
•	 monitor and support the goals of the White Paper on e-Education.

With regard to schools offering Grades 10 to 12, the Branch will:
•	 provide support to the provinces for the implementation of the National Curriculum Statement (NCS) in Grades 10 to 12, especially in relation to teacher development and assessment
     practices;
•	 publish Grades 10, 11 and 12 textbook catalogues;
•	 set and translate high-quality and error-free examination papers for the National Senior Certificate;
•	 publish detailed reports on the results of the National Senior Certificate examinations, in order to monitor and evaluate the quality and growth of learner attainment, and plan for the
     implementation of the National Senior Certificate;
•	 actively support the provinces and schools in reducing dropout and repeater rates in Grades 10 to 12;
•	 increase the number of focus schools, offering mathematics and science, with particular focus on redress;
•	 develop a framework for expanding specialist subjects in poor areas, so that more learners may have access to a wider range of subjects.

With regard to FET colleges, the Branch will:
•	 develop and gazette requirements for the National Certificate (Vocational);
•	 oversee the development and approval of programmes, leading to the National Certificate (Vocational);
•	 strengthen ties with SETAs, government departments, private sector and universities;
•	 develop a plan for the recapitalisation of FET colleges, based on FET programmes offered at each college;
•	 develop a National Plan for the sector, including norms and standards for FET colleges;
•	 actively support provinces and colleges to improve throughput and placement rates of college students;
•	 support the expansion and use of Information Communication Technologies (ICT) in teaching and learning at all FET College campuses;
•	 improve the use of information systems for planning and evaluation;
•	 support colleges in providing credible assessments of learning.

STRATEGIC PRIORITIES


The Branch has achieved significant progress towards realising the Department’s five broad priorities. These priorities have been translated into six key Branch strategic priorities as outlined
in the 2009-10 Operational Plans. The priorities aimed at:


1.   supporting schools that experience high levels of crime and violence to become safe and caring schools;
2.   increasing the participation and success rates of girl learners in gateway subjects in higher grades;
3.   reviewing Adult Education and Training (AET) and implementing the mass literacy campaign;
4.   facilitating the implementation of School Sports in schools;
5.   providing support and strengthening curricula-driven HIV and AIDS activities through peer education; and
6.   ensuring the successful and increased implementation of the National School Nutrition Programme (NSNP).

STRATEGIC PRIORITIES


The Higher Education Branch continues to provide strategic direction for the development of an effective and sustainable higher education system, and to manage government’s
responsibilities regarding the regulation of the higher education system. The strategic objectives and associated plans are based on the Ministry’s commitment to support the core work of
higher education, i.e. teaching and learning, research and community service, via quality improvement of the higher education system, as well as enhanced efficiency and effectiveness.
The strategic objectives of the Higher Education Branch are summarised as follows:


1.   The provision of regulatory support to the higher education system. In addition to amending legislation as appropriate, particular attention will be paid to reviewing the regulations
     and procedures for the registration of private higher education institutions.


2.   Academic and research support to the higher education system. Emphasis will be placed on the development of policies and criteria for research and teaching development grants,
     as stipulated in the funding framework for higher education.


3.   The provision of institutional support to higher education institutions. This includes capacity building, support to student leadership councils, and institutional forums.


4.   Internationalisation of higher education. The focus will be on the development of a framework for the internationalisation of the higher education system, particularly in the context
     of the African Continent.


5.   The strengthening of planning to support the production of quality graduates, required for the social and economic development of the country. The enrolment planning process will
     be refined, particularly taking into account the availability of resources, as well as national human resources development priorities.


6.   The achievement of institutional diversity in the South African higher education system. Continued technical, financial and policy support will be provided to higher education
     institutions, as part of the restructuring process, which is underway. Support for the establishment of national institutes of higher education in Mpumalanga and the Northern Cape
     will be accelerated.


7.   Monitoring and evaluation of the higher education system (including equity, access, diversity and outputs). Particular emphasis will be placed on the evaluation of the restructuring
     process, in order to assess the extent to which policy objectives have been met. Projects will also be undertaken to strengthen systemic and institutional performance indicators.

                                   DELIVERY IMPROVEMENT PLAN
9    EDUCATION SECTOR SERVICE DELIVERY IMPROVEMENT PLAN

The Department of Education derives its mandate from the Constitution and education laws and policies. In particular, the National Education Policy Act 1996 (section 3) gives the scope
within which the Minister is empowered to determine national education policy including the determination of the norms and standards as necessary to fulfil the functions and responsibility,
and monitoring thereof as set out in section 8 of NEPA.


Education in terms of Schedule 4 of the Constitution is a concurrent responsibility of the national and provincial spheres of government. This fact has been taken into account in developing
a Service Delivery Improvement Plan for the education sector. In practice the national executing authority in the field of education has the responsibility of determining policy, norms and
standards thereof, while provincial authorities are for the greater part responsible for implementation of national policy adhering to norms and standards as determined at national level.


In particular section 8 empowers the national level to monitor and evaluate standards of education provision, delivery and performance throughout the education system, and assisting
competent authorities by all practical means within the limits of available public resources to raise standards of education provision and performance.


The SDIP presented in this document should be seen within the context outlined above. The SDIP has been developed taking into account primarily principles of access, quality and
efficiency, with the implicit principle of redress. The SDIP therefore is organised on the basis of three guiding principles of access, quality and efficiency, giving in a broad manner education
services provided at different levels of the system, the entity responsible for implementation, the standards to be achieved (current status and desired status), envisaged time frames,
interventions initiated at national level, and monitoring mechanisms.
