Anglo American Foundation Report 2020

The quality of public schooling is often poor in our host communities, given that the best schools tend to be in urban rather than rural areas. Poor schooling can lead to unemployment and low productivity occupations and associated socio economic problems. Our vision is for all children in our host communities to have access to excellent education and training, especially in the context of digitisation and automation. Our goal is that all schools in our host communities will perform within the top 20% of state schools nationally by 2030. 

In April 2018, Anglo American launched the AASA Education Programme in partnership with the Department of Basic Education to improve the educational outcomes of learners in 109 schools and at least 100 Early Childhood Development (ECD) sites local to our operations. JET is featured in the Anglo American Foundation report 2020, focusing on JET's role as the managing service provider for the AASA Education Programme and ensuring the quality, effectiveness and efficiency of the delivery of the AASA Education Programme.
