On 4 April 2012, President Zuma will be meeting with the heads FET colleges in Pretoria.  The media advisory says that rhe President will be looking at the role FETs play in the country's skills development strategy.

Our current shortage of specific skills, including civil engineering, mining technology and engineering, information technology and computer science, finance, economics, electrical infrastructure and construction and accounting, are all mentioned in the advisory as being critical to South Africa's economic success.

The National Plan Vision 2030 recommended FET colleges be capacitated in order to meet the required for at least 30 000 artisans a year, and the Department of Higher Education and Training’s Green Paper for Post-School Education and Training addresses need for FET colleges to play a more strategic role.

As skills development practitioners, educators and human resource professionals, what would you say to President Zuma and the gathering of FET heads, and Ministers of Basic and Higher Education?
