Education is an essential tool for the success and the advancement of individuals around the world.When education is imparted successfully, it benefits the livelihood of individuals and communities, men and women, young and old alike across the spectrum. Education inherently advantages the beneficiaries thereof. Since education is progressive by its design, it is viewed by many as a necessary tool for promoting the process of transformation and empowerment in South Africa.

The Association of Private Providers of Education, Training and Development
(APPETD) has taken note of various reports on the internet and newspapers of leakages of examination papers during the recent Further Education And Training examinations at public and private FET Colleges.
APPETD condemns the occurence of these leakages in the strongest terms possible.
We call upon the private and public providers to urgently act strongly against the perpetrators of leakages and irregularities in examinations to ensure the future integrity of examination processes.
We also call upon the Department of Higher Education and Training to utilise all resources available to them to entrench safe transport of examination papers and avoid future leakages and irregularities.
