President Cyril Ramaphosa today delivered a welcome message to the first high-level dialogue of the Association for the Development of Education in Africa (ADEA).
The event is taking place at the Emperors Palace Hotel in Gauteng.
The two-day forum will become an annual High-Level Policy Forum on Secondary Education in Africa.
It will bring together Ministers responsible for education, as well as labour, academics, policy-makers, high-level representatives from development cooperation partners, the private sector, civil society, teachers and parents and youth organisations from across the African continent.
The engagement will provide an opportunity for key stakeholders to share and discuss comprehensive and innovative education and training models and programmes that aim at developing the youth with the necessary knowledge, tools and know-how for employability or job creation.
Outcomes of the High-Level Annual Policy Dialogue Forum will contribute to the discussions and key decisions that inform reforms in the countries’ policies and practices.
The Presidency, South Africa
