GOVERNMENT has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with South Africa (SA)'s Basic Education ministry to co-operate in basic primary and secondary education.

In a statement, the Primary and Secondary Education ministry said the principles enshrined in the regional protocol on education and training necessitated the signing of the MoU.

"The MoU signed by the two ministers, honourable Angie Motshekga and honourable Dr Evelyn Ndlovu reveals how conscious the two countries are of the benefits to be derived from close co-operation and the maintenance of friendly relations between the two countries as they are desirous of developing and promoting close co-operation in the field of basic primary and secondary education," the statement read.

"The principles enshrined in the Southern African Development Community protocol on education and training, have guided the signing of this historic memorandum of understanding."

Under the MoU, the two countries would exchange information on financing education development, infrastructure development, curriculum development and assessment.

The ministry said it was committed to inclusive and increased access to education.

"Education remains at the heart of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development for both countries as it is identified as a standalone goal (Sustainable Development Goal 4) and remains present as a target undergrowth, employment, sustainable consumption and production," the statement added.
