Education in South Africa

Education in South Africa

All South Africans have the right to a basic education, including adult basic education and further education.


According to the Bill of Rights of the country's Constitution, the state has an obligation, through reasonable measures, to progressively make this education available and accessible.

South Africa has one of the highest rates of public investment in education in the world.

At about 7% of gross domestic product (GDP) and 20% of total state expenditure, the government spends more on education than on any other sector.

Decade of the Artisan

Artisanship: A Path To Greatness

SABC Education fully embraces and adopts the Decade of the Artisan programme which was launched by the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) in January 2014.

The programme is a strategic vehicle for poverty alleviation through agrarian unemployment reduction as prescribed in the National Development Plan.

Expansion of sustainable job opportunities for South African school leavers and the current unemployed citizens is at the fore-front of government’s priorities, thus the Decade of the Artisan programme is pivotal to the attainment of government’s goals.

Foreword by the Minister

Artisanship: A Path To Greatness

There is a continuous need to produce qualified artisans to sustain industries and support economic growth within South Africa. In a range of national strategies the need for artisans has been elevated and identified as a priority area for skills development.

The National Development Plan states that the country should be producing 30 000 qualified artisans per year by 2030. At present, we are producing on average 13 000 qualified artisans per year and therefore the number has to more than double in the next seventeen years leading up to 2030.

This book, therefore, seeks to encourage young people to consider taking up careers along technical and artisanal skills.
