The College reaches out to High Schools with the aim to boost interest in the TVET Sector
Majuba TVET College IT and Business Campus (ITB), hosted the first annual Principal’s Breakfast recently, where all School Principals around the Amajuba District were invited. The aim of this event was to get the Principals to better understand the TVET Sector so that they are able to convey the correct information to their Learners.
Mrs. Florence Mabaso (ITB Campus Manager) warmly welcomed all the College management and guests, before the programme got under way. Mrs. Zandile Nkabinde (Deputy Principal: Academics), started by appreciating the initiative by the ITB Campus to host the meeting. “The aim of this meeting is to get the School Principals to better understand our sector. Our main focus for today is ministerial programmes, where we will be unpacking both the NCV and Report 191 programmes that we offer,” she elaborated.
Ms. S. Tshabalala (HOD: NCV) gave a presentation on all the Business Studies Programmes offered in the College, and Mr. B. Dladla (HOD: Engineering) presented all the Engineering Studies Programmes. The two HODs highlighted the benefits of studying at Majuba TVET College. Mrs Thandekile Dlamini (Assistant Director: SSS) also gave a presentation on student support services offered by the College.
Towards the end of the programme, the School Principals were given a chance to ask questions and pass general remarks. Mr. Q. Seyama (Deputy Principal: Hlalanathi High School) said he found the session very informative and wished that Learners, of all Grades, could have been present. “I would have loved for Learners and Parents to have gained the knowledge that was imparted today. I now know that TVET Colleges develop the skills of our Learners, which Universities cannot do,” he stated.
The session was a huge success. Majuba TVET College prides itself on being the Educational Institution of choice, in closing the skills gap and giving our youth chance to better their lives.
