The Gauteng Department of Education has initiated the establishment schools of specialisation (SoS’s) that seek to nurture talent in young people across key disciplines and develop the country’s future leaders. SoS are intended to respond to the skills shortage and unemployment crisis among the youth in the country. It is envisaged that SoS would equip learners with the skills and knowledge to give them the best chance of success in life.

The GDE acknowledges that these objectives cannot be realised without industry and private partnerships that will provide learners with workplace experience, learnerships, artisanship and entrepreneurial skills.

“We are excited about our partnership with BMW SA, who donated and handover one of its first model X3s to the school for educational gain to our learners, among others they will also support the school with training services and material. This is revolution and quality education we are advocating for which learners will benefit from,” said MEC Panyaza Lesufi

Speaking to TimesLIVE about SoS, the department’s spokesperson Steve Mabona said: “SoS (schools of specialisation) are intended to respond to the skills shortage and unemployment crisis among the youth in the country. It is envisaged that SoS would equip learners with the skills and knowledge to give them the best chance of success in life.”
