Poor Limpopo Matric Performance Set To Improve


In recent years, the matric pass rate of Limpopo has been fluctuating. The province’s matric cohort achieved the lowest pass rate of 66.7%, among the nine provinces. The Education Department has revealed how it will improve this province’s performance.



Recently, the office of the Premier hosted a provincial education summit where stakeholders in the education sector met to address the challenges faced by this sector in Limpopo.

It has been reported that a detailed plan of action was developed and has formed part of the current 2022/23 Operational plan of the province. 

This plan of action includes strengthening accountability in underperforming employees of the department, developing strategies that will aid in performance improvement strategies, and monitoring the progress thereafter.

In a statement, the department confirmed:

The province has allocated R154 million to strengthen teaching and learning for the class of 2022 through the following enrichment and support classes to be offered in identified schools. Education activists and experts have alluded that more teachers in critical subjects are needed so that the quality of education is improved.

It has been reported that there is a budget allocation of R20 million to strengthen teacher content capacity in Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM), and other critical subjects to improve performance.

According to the department, an induction programme has been put in place to empower newly appointed teachers, subject heads, and newly appointed principals.

The department added that it will be conducting regular oversight visits to give support and monitor the implementation of this plan.
