So why do we care?
Now, more than ever, young people need a way to design their own lives as future leaders and to gain and develop the skills that will enable them to achieve their goals and be successful in their endeavours. We call these 21st Century skills. Whether a young person wants to start a business, be ready to enter the job market or further their education journey, our mission is to prepare them for their chosen future path. We want to see a nation of entrepreneurial citizens who are actively engaged in the economy. We want to see poverty and unemployment reduced by 90% by 2030 so that our great country is placed in a worthy position in the global community. And so the schooling process needs to change to ensure that young people are better prepared for the 21st century that is now so different. Teachers are the change agents who can make this possible and as such will help learners to be participants in their own learning process. Teachers will guide this process as they pivot their classrooms to being learner-centred where the learners become engaged and enthusiastic about schooling that is meaningful and purpose-driven.
