Skills training for Thubelihle’s inclusive learning students

A project between uMfolozi TVET College, Intuthuko Special School, UNISA and the Department of Education changed the lives of 15 inclusive students by providing skills training in the form of Block Making, Cooking and Catering and Garment Making, recently.

According to Thubelihle Skills Centre Supervisor, the aim of the project was to attempt to address the issue of social injustice which continues to ‘haunt’ the society and create unnecessary exclusions for others, especially the youth with intellectual and learning impairments. “Another one is promoting social inclusion and advancing the development of our vulnerable members of society. Basic education limits students at special schools to study between certain ages, once they have reached the exit age they are on their own to find another place that will accommodate their needs. Therefore, Thubelihle grabbed the opportunity to make an impact with both hands,” explained Khanyile.

Khanyile commended the students for performing extremely well in their practical assessments and have learninh to finish their practicals within the given time. “Even the ones who can’t hear or speak well managed to transfer their knowledge and performed well in various tasks. Even in block making, which demanded more effort, students tried their best to do as instructed.”

“However in the initial stages of the project, the students displayed emotional instability which caused difficulty in concentration especially during class time. Lecturers therefore had to engage them in several informal ice breaking activities in order for them to adapt to the new environment and played games with them. They thereafter achieved better results.”
