According to the DRAFT NATIONAL PLAN FOR HIGHER EDUCATION IN SOUTH AFRICA MINISTRY OF EDUCATION FEBRUARY 2001, poor graduation and retention rates and high drop-out rates are unacceptable and represent a huge waste of resources, both financial and human. For example, a student drop-out rate of 20% implies that about R1.3 billion in government subsidies are spent each year on students who do not complete their study programmes. These funds would go a long way not only in financing the expansion of the higher education system, but also in providing the much-needed funds for redressing the inequities of the past. Moreover, the cost to those who drop-out, in terms of the moral and psychological damage associated with “failure”, is incalculable. While pass rates are worth celebrating, student retention is equally important. A year on year comparison has indicated while marginal in growth, False Bay TVET College through various intervention programmes and dedicated teaching staff has also achieved an upward retention rate for Nated and NC(V) programmes.

Acting Deputy for Education and Training, Ms Melanie Vermaak said “The lecturing staff are a critical part of the academic success of our students. It is very heart-warming to note the level of professionalism that is evident among our lecturers. Many lecturers go the extra mile to provide a stimulating teaching and learning environment. Lecturers put in extra time to ensure that their students are successful and this is evident in the good results that we achieve as a TVET College. The acknowledgement of the staff at the Staff Award Ceremony is a way to acknowledge the input of those who have achieved more than the expected in terms of results. We also acknowledge that there are many staff contributing just as much but perhaps did not reach the 100 % pass rate. We are so proud of all of our lecturing staff for their input on a daily basis.” She quoted Haim Ginott who said “Children are like wet cement, whatever falls on them makes an impression”. This is true of the positive impression our staff make on students.”
