MIET AFRICA received a Certificate of Recognition as a partner of the North West Province of Education’s Quality Learning and Teacher Campaign for the Education: My right! My future! project at the Quality Learning and Teaching Awards ceremony held recently in Mahikeng.  Education: My right! My future! is a three-year partnership between MIET AFRICA, the Department of Basic Education and the National Education Collaboration Trust with funding from Educate a Child. It seeks to bring 30 000 out-of-school children in six districts across four provinces back to school, and to ensure they attend school regularly and complete their primary schooling. MIET AFRICA was recognised as a key partner in supporting out of school children in the Bojanala District of the Province.

In addition, MIET AFRICA’s five parental volunteers/training co-ordinator assistants also received awards in the Excellence in Volunteerism (Parental Volunteers) category.

The Quality Learning and Teaching Campaign (QLTC) is a national intervention intended to mobilise stakeholders to play a role in promoting a culture of teaching and learning in schools. QLTC strives to bring into reality the delivery of quality learning and teaching through a collaborative effort between stakeholders.

Held annually, the Awards ceremony is a way in which the North West Department of Education & Sports Development acknowledges the commitment of every citizen and the contribution of all stakeholders in their efforts to improve the quality of education for all children, especially the poor, and to demonstrate this improved quality through better learner achievement.

Well done to the MIET AFRICA team in North West Province for their contribution to supporting quality teaching and learning for all children in SA.
