    Shaping Post-School Education in South Africa

    CHET Youth II Cover FINAL.indd

    The Shaping of South Africa’s Youth: Rethinking Post-School Education and Skills Training was launched at the University of Western Cape on Tuesday, 5 June 2012. Joy Papier, one of the book’s three editors, provided an overview of the book, and two authors (Cecil Mlasheni and Prof. Jo Muller) presented overviews of their chapters. Leon Beech, CEO of Northlink College, presented his perspective on the book, lauding its value as an empirical reference point for advancing the reshaping of the South African college sector, while at the same time providing some of the on-the-ground realities faced by the colleges such as constant pressure to expand with limited resources, the lack of career guidance at secondary level and the lip-service paid to partnerships between colleges and universities. A second launch is scheduled for 28 June in Johannesburg.
