Helping Hand for Struggling FETs
The Department of Higher Education says it has brokered a deal with the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants to supply struggling Further Education and Training colleges with retired accountants to assist them.
Higher Education Minister, Blade Nzimande, pointed out that the department will use a portion of the R2.5 billion announced by Zuma for capacity building projects at FET colleges by appointing qualified personnel and also to upgrade campuses and build new ones.
Speaking after President Jacob Zuma's meeting with principals and vice-principals of the 50 FET colleges, Higher Education Minister, Nzimande, stated: "Some of the things that cannot be done without the involvement of the department is the hiring of senior staff, election of governing councils, development of curriculum and funding of special projects."
