Abstract

Message of Support from Mrs GNM Pandor,
Minister of Higher Education and Training


Internationally there is a scarcity of peer-reviewed academic publications that are specifically intended to promote and disseminate scholarly research into post-school TVET and Adult and Continuing Education and Training.


The first edition of the Journal of Vocational, Adult and Continuing Education and Training and its focus on the African continent and the global South is thus timely and most welcome.


The enormous importance of the TVET, Adult and Continuing Education sector to the social and economic wellbeing of our people is not disputed. However, there has been an absence of a credible and quality publication to promote scholarly debate in the field. I am hopeful that this Journal of Vocational, Adult and Continuing Education and Training will provide such a platform for the theoretical and conceptual understanding of this sector. I hope also that the Journal will provide a platform for a rigorous and sound analysis of the implementation of the analyses of the scholars that will be published in the Journal.


I welcome the first edition of the Journal of Vocational, Adult and Continuing Education and Training and look forward to the interdisciplinary and globally comparative publications that will assist policymakers, practitioners, researchers and scholars to contribute to and enhance the understanding of this important sector.


Congratulations to the Institute for Post-School Studies at the University of the Western Cape and your partners on this milestone.


I wish you, your contributors and your readers every success in this first edition and continued strength in the years ahead.


Mrs GNM Pandor MP
Minister of Higher Education and Training
