High school graduates in the economy

In this eNCA hang-out, I chat to Zama Ndlovu, Managing Director of Youth Lab and communicator for the National Planning Commission; Jackie Williams, COO of Harambee Youth Employment Accelerator; Maleba Mashigo, a candidate at Harambee and Dr Neil Rankin, a microeconomist at Stellenbosch University about the economic prospects of matriculants. The focus here is on those who are going directly into the labour market and business, without having spent time in tertiary education. We explore the value of the matric certificate today, the challenges that school leavers face but also how to beat the odds in a tough economy.
