Boshoff, Ms H to ask the Minister of Basic Education
With reference to page 163 of her department’s 2016-17 annual report, (a) what is the total number of schools that were discovered not to have been trained on the National School Safety Plan and (b) what steps has her department taken to address the training problem?
(a) The total number of schools that have not been trained on the National School Safety Framework (NSSF) is 9894. This accounts for 40,5% of the total number of public schools.
(b) Provinces have been supported with master training as a way of developing capacity and competence within provinces to enable province to roll out the training to the remainder of untrained schools. The training was made possible through donor funds in the 2017/2018 financial year. Provinces have undertaken to finalise training in the 2018/2019 financial year.
