Every year nearly 700,000 high school students write the matric examinations in South Africa. In recent years about 70% of them pass annually. Only 18% of matriculants manage to access tertiary education. That means that over 500,000 matriculants become part of South Africa’s labour market annually while at the same time over 40% of the adult working population is unemployed and the economy is in recession and shedding jobs.
