Topic: UKZN’s Response to the Department of Higher Education and Training’s Green Paper for Post- School Education and Training

Presenters: Professor Kriben Pillay, Dean: College Teaching and Learning, College of Law and Management Studies; Professor Fikile Mtshali, Dean: College Teaching and Learning in the College of Health Sciences; Professor Frederick Veldman, Dean: College Teaching and Learning, College of Agriculture, Engineering and Science; Professor Nobuhle Hlongwa, Dean: College Teaching and Learning in the College of Humanities; and Mr Thembani Khumalo, Central SRC President – UKZN.

In 2012, the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) released, for public comment, the Green Paper for Post-School Education and Training. The purpose of the Green Paper was to create a policy framework that enables the DHET to shape its strategies and plans for the main pillars of our post-school system (Universities, FET Colleges, NSFAS, the SETAS together with the related quality assurance, advisory and regulatory institutions).

This symposium focused on, among others: coherence, articulation and differentiation between the various postschool sectors; prospects for increased participation in higher education; responsiveness of the post-school sector to socio-economic development; and a critical assessment of the Green Paper in providing an effective regulatory framework for Higher Education.
