Welcome to Umfolozi TVET College

Brilliance personified

Just like her name Nonhlakanipho Brilliant Ngema is the prefect representation of extraordinary intelligence and talent.  At the age of 32 she made a brave decision to go back to school and even through it was a hard decision, it proved to be one of best decisions she’s ever made because she graduated with cum laude and even scooped the ABSA Top Achievers Award.   We sat down with Nonhlakanipho and she let us in on her journey to success.  

1.  When did you start studying at the College?

July 2014

2.  What did you study?

 Diploma in Public Management

3.  Why did you decide to study at uMfolozi College?

 I had been working at KwaDukuza Municipality for almost two years when my contract was terminated.  I stayed at home for few months depressed with no work, then I thought to myself if I had a relevant qualification to back me up they would have employed me permanently.  That’s when I decided to enroll at uMfolozi TVET College.

4.  What was your favourite subject and why?

I enjoyed every subject but I will say that Public Administration was the one that stood out for me, for the fact that it gave me a lot of insights into how the government functions, its processes and structures as well as how society is structured.

5.  How did you feel when you found out that you had scooped the Top Achievers award from ABSA?

I was super ecstatic and I thanked the Lord for never leaving me.

6.  How does it feel to have lived up to the name that your parents gave you?

I’m just overwhelmed and really thankful to the Lord for the wisdom.

7.  What would you say you owe your success to?

It is God almighty.   Every time I study I invite him to give me knowledge, understanding and wisdom. 

8.  Do you have any study tips for uMfolozi College students?

We all have different methods that work for us but I will share mine too.  As a student you need to allocate time for your studies, make your own timetable and find suitable time for you to study e.g. if you are an early morning person utilize that time to study, if you prefer to study in the evening do so that when you get to class you will be more enlightened about the subject at hand and be able to pose question for clarity.  Prepare in advance for exams.

9.  Where did you grow up?

I was born in uMlazi, lived in Tongaat (Hambanathi Township) where my mother was working. Then I moved to Shakaskraal in Stanger.

10.  How old are you?

I am 36 years, I was 32 when I decided to study full time, it was the hardest decision to make but it was worth it and I was the eldest in my class but you couldn’t tell because I am petite.  I am mentioning this in order to motivate the students to keep their head high and know that determination and zeal will take them far in life.

11.  What is your motto in life?

Just do it.

13.  What are your plans now that you have graduated?

Next year I want to study Project Management.

14.  What are you currently doing with your life? 

Currently, I am working in Ballito for a company called Ubuhle HR & Management Consultant.  I work as a Project Administrator.

15.  Tell us more about the work that you do.

I started in February 2018.  Ubuhle HR is a National Education and Training provider that advises, designs, develops and implements Human Capital solutions around skills development, learnership projects, talent management and BBBEE Consulting. We work with different SETA’s namely W&R SETA, AgriSETA and CHIETA SETA.

My duties include conducting telephonic interviews with the potential candidates.  Preparing learnership agreements for submission to SETA, register learners on SETA systems, upload learner assessment results, prepare files for external 

moderation, and doing marketing research.  I like the fact that I am gaining skills and knowledge in the education and training environment.

17.  What do you do in your spare time?

I love reading, so in my spare time I read novels, newspapers or magazines.  I also like to go out and watch movies.
