Welcome to Umfolozi TVET College

Fresh ideas from the UK

After a week-long visit to the UK based Hertford Regional College, lecturers had to report back on what they’d learnt. A meeting between a representative from the British Council, Pabi Mapano and College staff was held at the Council Chamber, recently.

The aim of the visit was to gather more information on the functioning of the Hospitality department in England. Deputy Principal: Academic Services Mrs Elsie Du Toit said, “It’s great that we have started to liaise with the UK on how we can change the Curriculum. We’re busy with strategic planning for Eshowe and Esikhawini Campus because we plan to have occupational programmes for Chefs. We want to ensure that the Eshowe Guest Lodge is up and running so that students get all the exposure they need.”

College Principal, Mr Sam Zungu said he was happy that the trip was successful and that there was a lot to learn and explore by the staff. “People learn through exposure. We’re trying to focus on improving the way we do things. With Hospitality, students can prepare a bankable business plan and start their own businesses.”

Eshowe Business Studies, Education Specialist, Gerhard Van Schalwyk said the trip was a big eye opener. “We don’t always have to accept the way things are but to work with what you’ve got to change things even when unsupervised. I particularly enjoyed the English High Tea. The skills presented by the chefs were unique I would love to host a similar event that at Eshowe.”

uMfolozi’s relationship with the British Council commenced in 2016, Mrs Du Toit was chosen to form part of the Leadership Exchange Programme. A proposal was submitted to the British Council in 2017 for an International Skills Partnership Project. It was approved and uMfolozi partnered with Hertford College. The programme for the visit included: presentations, site visits, curriculum discussions, both theoretical and practical Campus visits, commercial activities, work based placement visits, exposure to the College’s marketing strategy and cultural visit to London.

 

 

 

CAL celebrates success

Chief Albert Luthuli hosted a successful Top Student Awards ceremony at the Campus on Friday, 12 October 2018.

In his speech, Campus Manager, Mr Sanjith Hooblal congratulated the high flyers and said, “Our efforts are to develop intrinsic motivation in our students. We need to train our students to take charge and trust them to be responsible of their successes and failures. As mentors we need to show them the path; accept responsibility to achieve our goals-we need to lead by example. What students learn from us is our attitudes, values and perception. This is the message we need to give collectively. In all of these efforts we will need our parents, community and other stakeholders to partner with us at all levels.”

Hooblal commended lectures for staying resolute even though they cope with an array of challenges while teaching and learning on a daily basis. He also went on to complement support staff for their efforts which don’t only end at maintaining efficient systems but ensuring that everything stays in order.

Guest Speaker, Calvin Sithole motivated the students to understand themselves and said the awards they were about to receive was proof that they’re able to think outside of the box. He even encouraged them to become entrepreneurs in order to create employment. “Think differently about yourself and goals no one will tell you what you should become. Believe in yourself, spend time with yourself read, books that encourage and motivate you.”

The event ended with awards for lecturers: FR Ganyile, SG Sahadev, CE Buthelezi, TA Mlongo, TS Ngema, TH Dube. The following Support Staff also received awards: SP Buthelezi, PN Ngema, TP Nxumalo, BC Majola and SKX Mnqayi.
