How do you ensure success? Boost skills in maths and science. SANRAL has made this a little easier with its recent joint launch of a new chair in science, mathematics and technology education with the University of the Free State.
The roads agency‘s R30 million endowment over five years is seed money used to establish the SANRAL Chair to help improve the quality of teaching in these vital subjects at township and rural schools. It will form part of the university’s Schools Partnership Project (SPP), a flagship initiative launched by the vice-chancellor, Prof Jonathan Jansen.
Education is one of the key priorities of the South African government and SANRAL has for many years been offering scholarships and bursaries to high school learners and university students.
The success of the government’s National Infrastructure Plan, which promises to create thousands of jobs and boost empowerment, will hinge on skills dependent on mathematics and science.
Infrastructure is critical to strengthening key value chains across our economy by advancing service delivery, bolstering job creation and expediting economic transformation.
By partnering with the University of the Free State and establishing the chair in science, mathematics and technology education, SANRAL will help to ensure that South African students can measure up to international standards in the mathematical world. And pave the way for personal success.
