OECD reviewed South Africa’s education, economic and innovation policies and strategies recently. CUT played host to the OECD delegation on 5 October 2010.

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has been the world’s largest reliable source of comparable statistics and economic social data. They provide comparative data and analysis on education policy-making to help build efficient and effective educational systems and improve learning outcomes. The purpose of their evaluation is to assist in comparing policy experiences, seek answers to common problems, identify good practice and coordinate domestic and international policies.

CUT had the honour of hosting the OECD team – as they primarily focus on European Union countries – and was given the opportunity to brain-storm with them and learn how we can do what we do even better. The OECD is in the Free State province to investigate higher education’s contribution to regional and local innovation and development.
