Welcome to Umfolozi TVET College

‘It’s cool to study in a TVET College’ –Manamela

The Department of Higher Education and Training Deputy Minister, Honourable Buti Manamela attended the 5th TVET Month Launch at uMfolozi TVET College, Esikhawini Campus on Wednesday, 1 August 2018.

In his speech, while addressing about 1500 high school learners from uMhlathuze Municipality he said it’s cool to study in a TVET College and to learn complex programmes. Manamela said that his department was working tirelessly to correct the misconception that TVET Colleges are secondary institutions.

“Those days are gone when Colleges were not taken seriously. Not only do they offer practical programmes, but they have the potential of linking students with industries. Colleges have improved their education programmes. Not only do students obtain valuable practical experience, they have huge potential of starting their own businesses once they receive their qualifications.”

“My department’s vision is to see more young people get into the technical, vocational education and training stream in order to speedily grow the economy of the country and thereby reducing the high unemployment rate,” said Manamela.

Manamela stressed that the launch took place during Women’s Month and said, “There was a time when we regarded the trades and technical vocations such as construction, engineering, welding, fitting and turning as men’s work. Thousands of young women enter the trades in South Africa. We support and encourage this and want to see even more women enter the trades.”

The DM, accompanied by DHET officials, College Management and learners went on to visit the different exhibition stands where KZN TVET Colleges and various SETAs were stationed to provide more insight on their programmes.
