SACE - South African council for Educators
The Department of Basic Education was formed when the former National Department of Education was split into two: DBE and the Department of Higher Education and Training. The DBE deals with all schools from Grade R to Grade 12, including adult literacy programmes.

Each ministry is responsible for its level of education across the country as a whole, while each of the nine provinces has its own education department.

Former Gauteng Education MEC Angie Motshekga oversees the Ministry of Basic Education which focuses on primary and secondary education, as well as early childhood development centres.

The aim of the DBE is to develop, maintain and support a South African school education system for the 21st century.

This online portal aims to provide a single resource where you have easy access to all the necessary materials to study, learn and pass the CAPS exams. This includes

CAPS workbooks

which can be downloaded or accessed online, CAPS memos to keep you updated on developments within the Department of Education and the CAPS curriculum, CAPS tests and CAPS test guidance and instructions.

According to the Bill of Rights of South Africa's Constitution, all South Africans have the right to a basic education, including adult basic education and access to further education. The state has an obligation, through reasonable measures, to progressively make this education available and accessible.

South Africa has one of the highest rates of public investment in education in the world. At about 7% of gross domestic product (GDP) and 20% of total state expenditure, the government spends more on education than on any other sector.

Government spending on basic education during 2015/16 is estimated at R203 468 billion and over the next three years, roughly R640 billion will go towards basic education.
A good head and good heart are always a formidable combination. But when you add to that a literate tongue or pen, then you have something very special.

The DBE Vision is of a South Africa

in which all our people have access to lifelong learning, as well as education and training, which will, in turn, contribute towards improving the quality of life and building a peaceful, prosperous and democratic South Africa.

Best Education was the first organisation to offer online resources, including the entire CAPS curriculum and as we are officially recognised by the Department of Education, we fully support their vision and strive to ensure that you benefit from the resources available.

CAPS stands for Curriculum Assessment Policy Statements

and is a revision of the National Curriculum Statement (NCS). Since the introduction of CAPS, every subject in each grade has a single, comprehensive and concise policy document that provides details on what teachers need to teach and assess on a grade-by-grade and subject-by-subject basis.

This curriculum review has the aim of lessening the administrative load on teachers, and ensuring that there is clear guidance and consistency for teachers when teaching.

They say that education is the light when we are in the darkness. It is the ray of hope when all the doors are closed, it is the window of opportunity that brings success to those who yield its power. The power to change the future.

Best Education offers you the opportunity to take advantage of our country’s significant investment in education and to make use of the many online resources available in order to empower yourself and future generations to really make a difference.

Best Education also aims to support and guide you through your education process, so become part of our knowledge sharing community and tell your friends and family that Best Education is here to support them.
Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.
