The National Youth Development Agency (NYDA) Second Chance Matric Rewrite Programme is currently in its sixth year and provides learners who have failed their matric exams with the opportunity to return to a school environment, receive free tuition and rewrite their exams. This programme is implemented annually by the NYDA in partnership with the ETDP Seta.
4443 learners from around the country were provided with revision and tuition throughout 2015 and sat again for their National Senior Certificate exams. The top five learners nationally will be presented to the media to share their joy, challenges and lessons learnt in passing exceptionally well the second time around.
Furthermore, the NYDA Second Chance Matric Rewrite Programme for 2016 will be launched.
According to the NYDA Executive Chairperson, Yershen Pillay, “The NYDA is ecstatic to share our success stories from the 2015 Second Chance Matric Rewrite Programme with the public to demonstrate the true potential that we are able to unearth through second chances. Furthermore, we are excited to be launching the 2016 NYDA Second Chance Matric Rewrite Programme which is in its sixth year now. Together with our committed partners, the ETDP Seta, we will be investing R20 million into this programme.”
