The Case for National Senior Certificate Second Chance Programmes: Evidence from DG Murray Trust Partners
Two programmes implemented by our implementing partners, GADRA Matric School (GMS) and the Midlands Community College’s Maths Science and Technology (MST) programme, are successful models which give a second chance to young people who have not performed well enough in their National Senior Certificate (NSC) examinations to study the tertiary courses of their choice. We believe that Government’s recent interest in second chances programmes presents a unique opportunity to feed the lessons learnt and good practices developed by these models into the planning process for a wider-scale state intervention. We have therefore commissioned a review of these programmes and public sector efforts to-date to document successes, good practices and the cost of these models. This learning brief reports back on this research. Read more here.
