National Education Leadership Dialogue's Education Collaboration Framework endorsed by the President

The Minister of Basic Education commits to the Education Collaboration Framework, a partnership initiative of the National Education Leadership Dialogue.

From the Basic Education Budget Vote Speech, 2013/14 by Mrs Angie Motshekga, Minister of Basic Education National Assembly, Cape Town

Education collaboration Framework

Honourable Members,

To respond to the call made by the National Development Plan for inter-sectoral cooperation to improve educational outcomes, working with various partners, we have put in place an Education Collaboration Framework (ECF).

It follows a multi-stakeholder Education Dialogue convened in December 2012, wherein business played a key role. Annually, companies spend just under R3 billion on education.

The ECF will implement targeted programmes including district and systemic change interventions and innovation projects. This is an important development for the current year, and has the blessings of the President and stakeholders. A special education trust is being set up. I’ll provide details soon.

I know this Collaboration will work. Since we signed the Nedlac Accord on Basic Education, our department has entered into partnerships with over 100 private businesses.
