Ambition country table
Concrete ambition 2018
Achieved results 2017
Continue to work on the idea for building 3 training centers: Horti, Pigs or Poultry and Dairy.
Short summary needs ZA (According to Carin Vijfhuizen report and experiences):
This brought us to a concept called “Agri training park”. We now also know that NL industry finds it interesting. Showing products but also supporting training is interesting. Through an independent training park, a “safe” environment could be created where lecturers and students can share knowledge, business can be trained and can train, etc. The centers will function as a satellite for TVET and Universities to work together on programs on continuous learning lines and the embedding of the wishes of the business community.
In the Voucher mission we speak with all stakeholders. During the first 2 days, the delegation will hold discussions with the embassy and regional authorities. On day 3,4, the delegation will split into Horti (towards Western Cape) and Animal Husbandry (KZN). During these days talks with TVET / training companies, universities and sector specific companies.
We process the result in a report and with that the approach path for cooperation is clear.
Main activities 2017
The country table was created because the agricultural council in South Africa asked a consultant to visualize the problems in the field of education in the green sector. The table prepared the mission of Carin Vijfhuizen and evaluated the report.
From that report the mismatch clearly emerged between current education offerings and wishes for business and unemployed outflow. Based on the analysis, we have made a plan of action. In that plan, we also looked at our own capacity and wishes and, in particular, taken into account how we are going to build a sustainable relationship.
We have summarized this plan of action in a film. This film was sent to round tables in South Africa and we participated in 4 round tables. Sometimes physically sometimes via Skype. With this we have been able to assess whether the plans fit within the wishes and opportunities from South Africa.
Voucher has been requested to travel to South Africa in February 2018 with 4 people.
Main activities 2018
The country table will meet 4 times.
