Macmillan announces diamond sponsorship for African Education Week
Last year, African Education Week attracted more than 2000 education professionals, from teachers, principals, curriculum planners, advisors, FET college and university faculty heads, deans, lectures, campus heads and ICT managers to suppliers of educational products. Macmillan South Africa has been involved in what is the largest education convention and expo on the continent, right from the start.
“We shape the future of education”
Says Macmillan’s Caren Maree: “with our global footprint and strong presence in the African continent we are committed to uplifting education and strongly believe that we don’t just sell textbooks - we shape the future of education and the generations. The standard of our pledge to enrich the education sector is evident through the unique and dynamic range of books we produce and the exceptional teacher training and development we offer. African Education Week is the ideal forum for us to showcase our ardour to education and gives us the opportunity to mingle with those whose lives we are changing.“
From May to July last year, Macmillan Teacher Campus trained more than 8000 teachers in Gauteng and North West to assist them in teaching English as a First Additional Language. This project was part of the company’s commitment to the Quality Learning and Teaching Campaign, which was launched in 2008 by the then Department of Education.
Quality education for all
African Education Week director Claire O’Connell says: “Macmillan South Africa are part of the family and have been crucial to the growth of the event over the years.” She continues: “we are delighted to have them on board again as diamond sponsors. The participation at this level highlights Macmillan’s commitment to driving the standards that improve the quality of education for all. Through their Teacher Training Campus, Macmillan are leading the way in training and development programmes and we look forward to their contribution to African Education Week.”
