CHAPTER NINE

9EDUCATION AND TRAINING

9.1Introduction


The future development of education in Botswana is guided by the Revised National Policy on Education (RNPE) of 1994. In Kgatleng District, there are various levels of providing education, which are Primary, Secondary, and Tertiary levels. Implementation and achievement of the education goals and objectives for the district will also be guided by the same policy and are geared towards achieving the Vision 2016 Pillar on “Building an Educated and Informed Nation”.

9.1.1Institutional Framework


Education and training responsibilities for Primary Education are shared between the Ministry of Local Government and the Ministry of Education. The latter is responsible for policy formulation while the former is responsible for policy implementation through the provision of appropriate infrastructure to primary schools. Secondary Education falls under the responsibility of the Department of Secondary Education in the Ministry of Education, which is also responsible for private secondary schools. The Ministry of Education is also responsible for Non-Formal Education and Vocational Education and Training. At the district level the ministry of Education is represented by the Department of Primary Education, Secondary Education, Non-Formal Education, teacher Training and Development and Vocational Education and Training through the Brigades which are partly funded by the government and partly by the communities.

9.1.2Strategic Plans for Respective Ministries


Ministry of Education

The Ministry’s mission is to provide quality education and training that is accessible to learners of all age groups and to create opportunities for life long learning to enable individuals to attain their full potential and to contribute to national socio-economic and technological advancement. This will be achieved through efficient and effective management of the national education and training system, development and implementation of relevant and responsive education policies and provision of an enabling environment for learning.


Ministry of Local Government

The mandate of the Ministry of Local Government is to provide basic physical and social infrastructure in particular through provision and maintenance of primary school infrastructure and provision of social protection systems. This will be achieved through the following goal:




  • To improve the quality of life by providing primary school infrastructure in the district.

  • To clear the maintenance backlog of facilities in the district

  • To improve social safety nets by targeting vulnerable groups, such as the needy pupils and the RADs under the National Strategy for Poverty Reduction

  • To provide social protection by improving delivery of food and other amenities to vulnerable groups


Ministry of Agriculture

The Ministry of Agriculture plans to increase agricultural technology development and transfer through the following strategic goals:




  • To promote science and technology based agricultural development through strong research extension linkages

  • To increase agricultural knowledge through regular targeted technology-based training. That is developing specialised training modules according to the customer needs.


Ministry of Labour and Home Affairs

The role of the Ministry of Labour and Home Affairs in terms of Education and Training is to provide information through generating, acquiring and disseminating information for purposes of education and research. This is done through the Mochudi Branch Library and Phuthadikobo Museum.



9.1.3The Role of the Private Sector


The District will continue to hive off to the private sector those activities that are not the core business of education and training. Office cleaning, security services, catering, gardening, and landscaping are some areas that have been identified for privatisation. The private sector will also continue to complement government in the provision of education at pre-school and primary and secondary levels, as well as through schools for people with disabilities. In the district there is only one private primary school, Raserura, several pre-schools, and two special education centres. That is Pudologong Centre for the Blind and Motswedi Rehabilitation Centre for the disabled.

9.1.4Education and Training Consultation Priority Issues


The following issues were raised during the community consultation workshops:


  • Long or overstay of teachers in one school or district

The community was concerned that staying too long in one area by teachers tends to influence their behaviour negatively in delivering quality teaching and social interaction with the community they are serving.


  • Poor and Inadequate Teachers’ Accommodation

There was a concern was raised to the effect that teachers like other civil servants should be accommodated properly in houses that have amenities such as electricity, etc.
Strengthening Planning and coordination capacity at district level for better utilization of resources. For example adjusting the enrolment of primary schools to their capacities.
