UMfolozi Launches Centre of Specialization


“To improve the South African economy, there must be an investment in technical skills,” were the words emphasized by the College Principal during the Centre of Specialization launch (CoS) at Richtek Campus on, Thursday 1 March 2018. Centre of Specialization is a national programme aimed at producing a skilled workforce to support inclusive economic growth, increased availability of intermediate-level technical skills, increased delivery of qualified artisans in priority trades and improved capacity of public TVET Colleges to train in skills in demand by the industry.

The aim is to use the dual system apprenticeships that combine technical education at a TVET College with simulated practical training and a lot of authentic work experience in a single, integrated learning programme.

CoS stemmed from a partnership with the Department of Higher Education and Training and business associations from the private sector, focusing on 13 priority trades. The College will offer Millwright and Rigging trades. There will be close interaction between the College and employers throughout the training, with workplace schedule setting the tone.

Addressing a number of host employers, Principal, Sam Zungu went on to say, it is the College’s role to make a difference in the areas where it is operating and therefore urged them to have a joint training committee. In her motivational message, employer representative, Kylie Griffin invited the companies to put their efforts in the future economy of the country by up skilling the youth. “We need to make some changes to reverse inequality, focus on artisans who play a highly important role in industry and to have innovative equipment. We hope the project will be a door opener and have to use the industry for this programme to be effective. Need projects like these to develop, up skill and take them to the workforce. Our goals are to empower and assist TVET Colleges which are the providers of choice and produce a curriculum occupationally designed for industry. We need to change our mindset and engage with College,” said Griffin.
