The project was undertaken by a consortium made up of the Human Sciences Research Council (the lead organisation), the Education Policy Consortium, JET Education Services, and the Project for the Study of Alternative Education in South Africa, with the support of the Department of Education. The NSES study, conducted under the theme of improving school effectiveness, was designed to enable the gain scores of a learner over any one-year period to be related to the practices followed by the teacher for the same year. The study followed a group of children for three years, starting with Grade 3 in 2007 and ending in Grade 5 in 2009. Around 16 000 children participated in each year of data gathering, during which a cohort of 8 383 was tracked over all three years. The NSES culminated in the publication of the book Creating Effective Schools, edited by Nick Taylor, Servaas ven der Berg and Thabo Mabogoane

At the outset, let me express my sincere appreciation to the FET Steering Committee, led by my Director General Professor Mary Metcalfe, assisted by my advisors Mr Gwebs Qonde and John Pampallis, for the excellent work they have done over the past four months to prepare for this summit. I am aware that extensive work has been undertaken under the leadership of the Steering Committee and that many difficult issues have been confronted in the preparatory processes.
