NUM and MQA to celebrate the International Literacy Day at Petra Diamonds Finsch Mine in Northern Cape



The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) in partnership with the Mining Qualifications Authority (MQA) will celebrate the International Literacy Day on Saturday, 09 September 2017 to be hosted at Petra Diamonds Finsch Mine in Northern Cape. The event will start at 09h00. It will celebrate the achievements and importance of Adult Education and Training in the mining sector.

The objective of the event is to encourage new entrants, learners who are currently in Adult Education and Training (AET) AET programmes and those who have successfully completed their AET training to continue their education. The theme for this year’s event is “Education for career progression and liberation”.

The Deputy Minister of Mineral Resources honorable Godfrey Olifant will deliver a keynote address. NUM President comrade Piet Matosa and MQA Acting CEO Mr. Tebogo Mmotla will also address the learners.

International Literacy Day is celebrated globally in September to highlight the need for a continuous sustenance of literacy education, especially amongst adult learners. The NUM and MQA are placing greater efforts to promote adult learning and this is a flagship event through which efforts are made to encourage companies to register more learners on Adult Education and Training (AET) programmes and encourage learners to attend classes. Achievements in AET programmes are key towards unlocking more possibilities for the workers to improve their education.

The NUM and MQA have previously formed partnerships with several mining and minerals sector stakeholders to promote the significance of AET as a means of advancing to improved standards of lifestyles, such as access to knowledge and better working opportunities. Literacy programmes contribute to productivity, health and safety and empower employees in the mining and minerals sector.

The MQA is a skills development administration organisation for the mining and minerals sector established as a result of the Mine Health and Safety Act of 1996 and a Sector Education and Training.

The media is invited to attend and report
