National Enrolment Planning Workshop

10 December 2018, 11:29


The recent release of the ASSAf report on Reconceptualising Health Professions Education in South Africa proved timely and relevant to the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) enrolment planning process.

DHET is undertaking the process of the new cycle of enrolment planning for 2020 to 2025. This process is geared towards attaining the National Development Plan goals for 2030. To expand the dialogue with relevant stakeholders, DHET hosted a one-day National Enrolment Planning Workshop on 31 October 2018. At this workshop the ASSAf report was presented by Prof Lionel Green-Thompson, a panel member for the consensus study. The report’s recommendations were well received, and the discussions were valuable especially as ASSAf is engaging with different stakeholders to promote the implementation of the report recommendations.
