SECTOR FOREWORD Education and Training: Academic The South African Constitution of 1996 enshrines the right to basic education, including adult education and to further education, which the state, through reasonable measures, must make progressively available and accessible. Education and training have been identified as some of the key vehicles that can be used to overcome the injustices of apartheid. Since then, significant progress has been made in education legislation, policy development and curriculum reform; the allocation of educational resources has clearly been directed by considerations of equity and redress. In South Africa, this is a sector that has been beset by many challenges and even more criticisms recently. The outcry has, largely, been that stakeholders are not doing [nearly] enough to support the sector in general. Yet, there are those in the Education and Training: Academic sector who keep forging ahead despite all the odds stacked against them. It is to these women that Unisa SBL toasts as they ensure that future generations have a solid grip on their destinies.
