Learners in Piet Retief in Mpumalanga will today get career guidance on what to study and how to apply for admission to post-school institutions.
Higher Education and Training Deputy Minister Mduduzi Manana will today roll out the 2017 Apply Now/Khetha Career Guidance Campaign by visiting three schools in the Mkhondo Local Municipality, under which Piet Retief falls.
The Apply Now/Khetha Career Guidance Campaign is aimed at encouraging matriculants to apply on time for admission to post-school institutions to avoid long queues at the beginning of each academic year.
The Career Guidance component of the campaign is meant to inform learners about the 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.
