|dc.description.abstract||The scope of education and training needs which South Africa is
currently experiencing emphasizes the fact that no single form
of provision of education will succeed to meet the learning needs
of the community. Alternative options, other than the traditional
forms of provision, should be investigated and considered.
Community education is an option for the extension of learning
and educational opportunities to meet the needs of the community.
Community education involves a process and structure for the
provision of learning and education opportunities to the
community by means of community education programmes.
The community college or community learning centre forms an
integral part of the infrastructure for community education. In
South Africa the concept of a community college system is nothing
new. An institution which is accessible and has the necessary
flexibility to cater for the diverse needs of a heterogeneous
student community is envisaged. Technical colleges can make a
significant contribution in this regard. The transformation of
technical colleges into community colleges seems to be a viable
option against the background of the optimal utilization of
Under the constitutional dispensation before 27 April 1994, the
Department of Education and Training catered for the education
of the black community. This department had already, since 1990
considered the transformation of those technical colleges under
its jurisdiction into community colleges.
As educational leader and chief executive officer the role of the
principal is central in the community education process.
Community education programmes must become a reality under his
management and leadership.
The subject of this study is the task of the technical college
principal with regard to the implementation of community
education. In addition to this it will be endeavoured to
determine guidelines for the implementation of community
education at technical colleges.||en_US
