SECTOR FOREWORD Education and Training: Private The growing demand for private schools and ongoing challenges in public education system including poor governance, lack of infrastructure, shortages of teachers and many others present a golden opportunity for entrepreneurs in the education sector. Enterprising entrepreneurs can play a role in the construction, and running of high demand private facilities, and ultimately help to improve the country’s education system. Gerrie van Biljon, executive director at Business Partners Limited, says that entrepreneurs have the opportunity to provide additional facilities and services to aspiring learners and thereby increase the country’s and continent’s knowledge and skill set base. Van Biljon says education remains a major challenge in South Africa and has a direct impact on the current skills shortage in various facets of the local economy. According to him educating the country is everyone’s responsibility. CEO Global lauds all the achievers in this sector. They have shown responsible citizenship as they realised that they are the government and the government is the people.
