Thubelihle Skills Centre Graduation

m3

29 intellectually impaired students graduated at the uMfolozi, Intuthuko and UNISA 2018 Skills Project graduation held at Esikhawini Campus on Tuesday, 27 November 2018. These students were extensively trained at Thubelihle Skills Centre in Garment Making, Cooking and Catering and Block Making from January to June and July to November, respectively.

Speaking after the graduation, Sbongiseni Ndandwe said he was ecstatic that he was going to be able to find employment now that he had received his certificate in Garment Making. “I visited quite a few factories in Durban and I was told that it will be easier when I have a qualification to find a job. I cannot wait to begin a career in what I love the most. A big thank you to uMfolozi, Intuthuko Special School and UNISA for making this possible. May they continue to change the lives of people like me who often feel forgotten and left out by society!”

The graduation attempts to challenge the common stereotypes that learners from special schools cannot further their studies in higher education institutions. The event further seeks to provide an alternative authorship of the abilities of students with intellectual disabilities.

It is also aimed at raising public awareness about the crucial need for educational settings which provide opportunities for students with intellectual disabilities to participate in mainstream work preparation programmes.

According to the project leader, Mr. Israel Lindokuhle Mkhuma (Lecturer at the Department of Inclusive education, UNISA), this project is about empowerment of the marginalized students whose right to have access to higher continues to be ignored. Furthermore, he emphasized that the participation of these students in the mainstream economy is a matter of serious concern.  

The long-term goal of the project is to establish cooperative that would be directed by the students but employ the youth from the mainstream society.
