GOVERNMENT TUITION FEE SUBSIDY (GTFS) POLICY

In 2020, the GTFS Policy introduced a shared responsibility and partnership from government and parents to work together to provide quality education for our children.

The government is committed to its policy on partnership and makes education a shared responsibility between the national government, provincial governments, DDAs, parents, churches and other stakeholders. Everyone’s support for this policy is critical for the education of our children.
