Deputy Minister of Higher Education and Training, Mduduzi Manana will launch the 2017 Apply Now/Khetha Career Guidance Campaign by visiting three schools in Ga-Segonyana Local Municipality in Kuruman on Friday.
The department spokesperson, Busiswa Gqamgeni said the “Apply Now/Khetha Career Guidance Campaign” is aimed at encouraging secondary school learners to apply on time for admission to post-school institutions.
“This will avert possible stampedes and long queues that take place at the beginning of each academic year. The Career Guidance component of the campaign seeks to inform learners about career choices available within the post-school sector.
“The roll-out of the campaign is targeted at far-flung and often neglected rural areas, villages and townships to ensure that learners in those areas make informed career choices,” Gqangeni said.
Manana will have a conversation with learners from Grade 09 to 12 and further promote the “100 Occupations in high demand” list released by the Minister in 2014.
