In keeping with its motto, Majuba TVET College continued to soar to greater heights by scooping two coveted awards at the recent TVET Imbizo and Ministerial Awards Ceremony which was held at the Lakes Hotel and Conference Centre in Benoni. This event was attended by the who’s who of business and industry as well as representatives of the 50 TVET Colleges countrywide.
The College has been greatly humbled and honoured to have received the Minister’s Award for the TVET College with the most meaningful Partnerships with Industry and/or SETA’s. This is in recognition of the sterling work by the college in promoting Learnerships and Apprenticeships as envisaged by the National Development Plan. The College has engaged Industry and Business throughout South Africa and has acquired numerous partners that will take on learners in all Trades as apprentices. These business entities will also provide Work Integrated Learning (in-service training) to Majuba Learners as well as Workplace-Based Exposure (WBE) to our staff to ensure the currency of their knowledge and skills.
At this Ceremony, the College was also officially awarded the honour of being declared a Centre of Specialisation for the Boilermaking Trade. This award recognises the excellent training provided to its learners, and makes the College an institution of choice for the training of Apprentices.
Mrs Zandile Nkabinde, Deputy Principal: Academic Services, sends a proud message: “Congratulations to our Occupational and Placement Unit together with the Newcastle Training Centre. You have reaped the results of your hard labour… continue to raise the Majuba flag high.”
The College extends its appreciation to the dedicated personnel who work tirelessly to ensure that the College remains at the forefront of HRD and, by whose efforts thousands of skilled artisans are provided to industry – with the additional benefit of employment creation and poverty alleviation in many sectors of the economy.
Majuba TVET College is committed to maintaining excellence in its training practices and looks forward to similar recognition for other Engineering and Civil Trades.
