Leather shoes manufactured at uMfolozi

FOR the first time, uMfolozi TVET College participated in a project to train youth from Nseleni, Mzingazi, Esikhawini and surrounding areas in a skills programme aimed at manufacturing leather footwear.

 A group of 45 students will soon receive their certificates after completing the 3 month skills programme in March this year. The College plans to expose students to a full qualification where they can learn to produce even leather belts and bags through a learnership.

The project was initiated by a Durban based company, Zethu Shoes. In no time, College Project Coordinator; Sifiso Magwaza applied for accreditation and assisted the team to gather the study material. “This is a unique programme which was offered at Nseleni Campus which boasts a shoe factory. It was quite interesting to learn about the process of shoe manufacturing. Local youth have a lot of hidden skills that need to be uncovered and projects like these are of a great benefit. I love the fact that we don’t need to travel long distances for these resources,” said Magwaza.

The College has been communicating with the Woolworths Head Office officials in order to supply some of the shoes to them. We hope the communication will yield positive results as the shoes are of high quality.

 Former students who did exceptionally well in the first intake will be used to assist in training the next intake of students. While some of the students will be absorbed by Zethu Shoes, some will be placed in factories in Durban for practical exposure.
