The mission of the Northern Cape Department of Education is to develop and deliver a quality, effective and efficient education system in the Northern Cape that is responsive to socio-economic development goals and targets of the province and country, and the building of a non-racial, nonsexist and prosperous Northern Cape, through social cohesion and nation-building.

The Department's strategic goals are to provide and maintain optimal administrative and logistical support systems to the Department; provide access to quality basic education; ensure the provision of quality education at independent schools; ensure that education programmes in our schools continue to be accessible, transformative and developmental; improve and strengthen the skills base; provide quality learning opportunities to adult learners through basic education programmes; provide universal access to quality early childhood development services to all children in the province; and provide support services that enhance the functionality and effectiveness of basic education.
