Consider these enigmas as outlined by President Cyril Ramaphosa at a recent Secondary Education Conference:
- that economies in Africa are unable to absorb a significant proportion of young people because the education system is not aligned to the needs of the country:
- that most unemployed young people across Africa are those who have completed secondary or tertiary education;
- by comparison, unemployment is lower among those who have little to no education.
The Franchise Association of South Africa has a message for President Ramaphosa… the solution is a shift in the approach to education to align skills and market needs and the franchising business model offers solutions right now!
