UNREVISED HANSARD JOINT SITTING TUESDAY, 25 JUNE 2019 Page: 284 R20,4 billion for Tvet college students. The EFF can criticise us if they want to, but you can’t be blind to these achievements that have made a lot of difference to millions of young people in this country. [Applause.] An infrastructure priority for the sixth administration also includes the development of decent, affordable student housing for universities and Tvet colleges and we will give further details on this during the Budget Votes. Safe to say that, government plans a massive investment in student accommodation. The new landscape for the Sector Education and Training Authority, SETAs, will be implemented from 1 April 2020. The aim of the new landscape is to strengthen, realign and repurpose the SETA system to support our skills development and human resource development plans. Artisan development remains a priority while expanding workplace-based learning through learnership, work integrated learning and internships. The government will continue to strengthen what we call centres of specialisation, to ensure this; we have identified 26 Tvet colleges, we want these in the

UNREVISED HANSARD JOINT SITTING TUESDAY, 25 JUNE 2019 Page: 285 areas in which they specialise to produce highly skilled and highly trained artisans, whether they are plumbers, welders, fitters and turners as these are very important in terms of achieving the many things that the President has outlined which need to be achieved through our economy. We are glad to say that there are four employer associations participating in this initiative and we welcome that. Again, we must remind the EFF, I was amazed to hear that the President is being criticised that he doesn’t have the influence among business that he claims to have. This is amazing.

What make us to be able to change things is not individuals who may happen to be President; it is the waging of the class struggle to change the balance of forces on the ground. [Applause.] That is what we need to do. You can’t be putting the blame on the President because we have never known, well, according to some of you like hon Shivambu, what is it to actually wage a struggle aimed at transforming the relations of

You can’t be left and without being a materialist. We welcome some commitments from the President, amongst others I quote the following: “We will expand our high-tech industry by ensuring that the legal and regulatory framework promotes innovation, scaling up skills development for young people in new technologies, and reducing data costs.” The President also continued to say:

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
