Starting Saturday, 20th February 2021 until 10th April 2021, OR Tambo School will roll out its advanced History of ANC political education classes at regional level. Regional Executive Committees from provinces of Gauteng, Limpopo and Kwazulu Natal will be in attendance.
This module sets the contemporary role, challenges, and achievements of the ANC in its historical context by examining factors that shaped the organisation’s vision and strategy over years. It revisits debates using interactive learning which allows students to practice on developing strategy.
The module is organised around turning points in history over four periods. These being:
- The early colonial period from 1652 to the 1930s;
- Mass action in the 1950s up to the banning of the ANC in 1960;
- The shift to armed struggle and the rise of resistance against apartheid in South Africa in the 1970s and 1980s; and
- The negotiation for a post-apartheid settlement in the early 1990s and the current period.
The courses are part of pilot phasing that includes Tools Analysis and Basic Economics classes that were successfully run towards the end of 2020. The History of the ANC is the third of five advanced courses ready for delivery by OR Tambo School of Leadership.
“We are learning through doing and particularly encouraged by feedback received thus far” excitedly explains OR Tambo School Principal, Dr David Masondo, at the news that the next rollout of the school strategic courses is at full steam. “By the end of this year – and within Covid-19 prescripts parameters – we hope to extend the school’s reach in a manner that starts to shift thinking and behavior”.
