Technical and Vocational Education is part of the South African New Growth Path (NGP)

BuaNews reports that the Higher Education and Training Minister of South Africa, Blade Nzimande, noted at the Third International Congress on TVET (Technical and Vocational Education and Training), that South Africa needs to develop skilled workers to go further on the “New Growth Path” (NGP).

He noted that many middle-income countries were primarily producers of minerals and agricultural raw materials, but to develop further, they needed to beneficiate their raw materials and develop their manufacturing and other key industries, which required the growth of technical and vocational skills among their workers.
