NPC Calls for public comment on two education research papers

“The National Planning Commission (NPC) has released two Education papers for public comment. The first paper, entitled Education and skills for the economy focuses on basic and technical education. The second paper, entitled Analysis of PSET Trends, focuses on post-school higher and vocational education. Both papers offer insight into progress, where the system has fallen short, and make recommendations for strengthening delivery. Basic and post school education are often analysed separately. The NPC aim to support an analytical thread through the full journey to understand the extent that the education system is enabling pathways to the labour market, employment and shared prosperity.

These papers are being released with the objective of enabling public engagement on this critical topic. The two papers are available for download  via: For your convenience, copies of the papers are attached. Kindly disseminate to your stakeholders.

The NPC encourages stakeholders to review these papers and welcomes feedback on them. Please all submit comments or enquiries by July 6, 2020 to Mr Ashraf Kariem via and Ms Dakalo Netswera, Research Assistant, Email: National Planning Commission Secretariat
