Minister Grant to Award Top FET College Achievers

15 April 2012

On 16 April 2012, the WCED will be hosting its first ever FET College student awards ceremony at the False Bay College Central Office.

The awards recognise the highest achievements in the 2011 national NC(V) and NATED examination (the FET equivalent to the NSC awards at Leeuwenhof). Individual learners will receive a cash prize, as well as a laptop.

This year's awards are also special for the Western Cape, as we have outperformed all other provinces in these examinations, as well as exceeded our very own targets. For example, in 2011 we saw significant increases in all the three levels of the NC(V) examination results compared to previous years.

We also performed consistently above the national certification rate across all three N levels in the NATED examinations and is the top performer in the NATED 4 and NATED 5 examinations.

Minister Donald Grant will be the keynote speaker at the event.
