The Deputy Minister of Higher Education and Training, Mr Mduduzi Manana MP, will roll out the 2015 Apply Now/Khetha Career Guidance Campaign by visiting three schools in the Thulamahashe Area, Bushbuckridge Local Municipality, Mpumalanga Province on Monday, 8 June 2015.
The Apply Now/Khetha Career Guidance Campaign is aimed at encouraging learners to apply on time for admission to post-school institutions and thus 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. The Deputy Minister will have a conversation with learners from Grade 9 to 12 and further promote the “100 Occupations in high demand” list released by the Minister in 2014.
