This research monograph is part of a series that aims to explore the ways in which higher education and industry have formed research partnerships to promote innovation in biotechnology, ICT and new materials development in response to global trends and national policy imperatives. The series examines these partnerships in relation to knowledge production, enterprise productivity and innovation, and considers the extent to which network practices operate in South Africa.

The Research Programme on Human Resources Development (HRD) at the HSRC authored the report. This Programme provides state-of-the-art information on HRD and aims to inform the development of skills that will meet national social and economic needs. In addition to producing a biennial HRD directory and an internet-accessible, cross-sectoral data warehouse, the Research Programme undertakes user-driven research focusing on further and higher education and training, and on science, technology and education, with a strong emphasis on learning pathways - especially the transition between different levels of education and training, and between education and work.

Ambitions Revised
Grade 12 learner destinations one year on

This monograph is the sequel to Studying Ambitions: Pathways from grade 12 and the factors that shape them, which investigated the aspirations for future study and/or work of 20 659 grade 12 learners across South Africa in 2005. Ambitions Revised: Grade 12 learner destinations one year on tracks the same cohort of learners into their destinations one year later. Of particular interest to the research team was the sub-set of those who enrolled in teacher education programmes. The extremely low levels of interest in teaching first observed in a similar 2002 HSRC study are confirmed here a finding which has implications for sustainable teacher supply and for the health of an education system upon which the future of the country depends.
