An induction of more than 20 Business Studies students took place recently at the Central Office Main Boardroom, where funding was granted by ETDP SETA to place them into a Work Integrated Learning (WIL) Programme.
These fortunate students who were placed in numerous companies will be receiving a stipend every month, over an 18-month period programme which started on 1 June 2019.
Ms. Noma Maseko (Project Officer: Work Integrated Unit) welcomed the students and the stakeholders on behalf of the Principal (Mr. S. J Mlotshwa) and all the Senior Managers. She also gave an explanation of the selection process. She further went on to state that,” We commend our students for completing their academic qualifications and taking this opportunity to be a part of the WIL programme. We thank the ETDP SETA for the partnership with Majuba TVET College.”
A representative from ETDP SETA, Mrs. G. Le Grange conducted a presentation to brief the students on the project. Mrs. Le Grange spoke to the students about the importance of making themselves irreplaceable and showing dedication in the workplace. She said it will help them to leave a positive impression on the host employer, and might just result in them securing a permanent position.
Mr. Sifiso Vinkhumbo gave a presentation on behalf of the College and its role. He further stated that what the students do at work must relate to what they have studied.
This initiative forms part of the Department of Higher Education and Training strategy and quest to turn every workplace into a training space.
