Student service plan on cards

ONE year of compulsory community service is in store for graduates after they complete their tertiary studies.

All graduates – irrespective of whether their education has been privately funded or paid for by the state through the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) – could soon be compelled to complete the service.

This is according to the ANC national executive committee (NEC) sub-committee on education and health, which revealed yesterday that it had been discussing the matter for several months. It said the proposal would definitely be implemented within the next five years.
