In the 21st century, women are more powerful than ever. Women are working in every possible field of work shoulder to shoulder with men. Women are reaching heights in every field from social, economic to a political and legal field. To celebrate the spirit of women empowerment every year August 9 is celebrated as Women’s Day and the theme for this year was “Be Bold for Change”.

As the Tshwane North TVET College, the day was celebrated on the 15 th August in the Collegium Hall of Pretoria Campus.

As a college we celebrated the day to acknowledge the women in the College as large. The principal of the College, Ms Thembi Tsibogo, shared her personal experience or testimony with the women about the journey which reconciled her with God and being given a second chance to work and she encouraged women to take their jobs seriously and value what they have.

Among the women was Ms Mildred Nkopane Chief Director in the Premiers office, who graced us with her presence reading the speech of the DG, Ms Phindile Baleni, who had put emphasis on women changing the negative mind set, appreciating themselves and embracing youngsters in the workplace.

Thumbs up and hats off to this genius! Sydney Jesaya Shabangu is studying Financial Management at Tshwane North TVET College, Pretoria Campus.

He completed his National Certificate Vocational, (NC (V), Finance, Economics and Accounting, in record time with nine distinctions – 3 for New Venture, 2 for Life Orientation, 1 for Applied Accounting and 1 for Economics.

The one on one session we had with Sydney confirmed what a strong man he is. “I regard TNC as my second home because this is where I spend most of my time during the week, building my education. There are many people who support me, lecturers, general workers, administration staff and students. When I first got here I looked confident but inside I was wondering if I would cope.

I felt intimidated by being around physically abled people every day for the first time in my life as I was previously attending a college for the physically impaired.

As time went by I observed that when you have a positive attitude towards others, they will accept you and support you throughout your journey. Hard work, determination and support pushed me beyond my thoughts and dreams. I have also learnt that the tougher something gets, the more valuable it becomes. I am currently doing N5 Financial Management.

The most exciting day for me was on 29 June 2017 at the annual Graduation Ceremony of the TNC, when I ascended the stage for the first time to have my NC (V) qualification officially handed over to me.

To my resounding joy, I was announced as the best achiever in NC (V). I received a laptop, tablet and a trophy for my excellent performance. I would like to express my sincerest gratitude to my TNC family, my Mother and to God.”

City of Tshwane, MerSETA and Samsung partner to-provide skills for employability

Tshwane North TVET College opens Refrigeration and Air-conditioning Academy

Temba, Pretoria, 15 April 2016 – The City of Tshwane in partnership with MerSETA and Samsung Electronics South Africa today launched an Electronics, Refrigeration and Air-conditioning Academy at the Tshwane North TVET College, Temba Campus in Pretoria.

The Academy will provide technical training to learners in an effort to provide skills training, as well as new career and entrepreneurial opportunities.

Learners will be trained by facilitators at the Tshwane North TVET College at no cost. Funding of learners will be at the discretion of merSETA and based on the availability of funds.”

Cllr Kgosientso Ramokgopa, Executive Mayor of Tshwane, says the Academy will help to ensure that South Africa is training the artisans needed to successfully implement the country’s strategic infrastructure projects, as outlined in our National Development Plan (NDP).

“At present the country is producing on average 13,000 qualified artisans per year which is less than half of the 30,000 artisans that we need to produce per year by 2030,” says Ramakgopa. “In order to achieve such substantial growth, we require sustained commitment by all key stakeholders and the Samsung Refrigeration and Air-conditioning Academy will go a long way to demonstrate this.”

Pitso Kekana, Head of Public Affairs and Corporate Citizenship at Samsung South Africa concur, adding: “The Department of Higher Education and Training has identified an increased need for skilled and qualified artisans in all disciplines to sustain industries and support economic growth within South Africa. For Samsung, our goal is to reach a point where most of our products in Africa are developed on the continent, and the starting point for this is to offer access to the necessary training. This is why we are so excited to be launching the Academy.”

The first 40 students have already been identified and been awarded their study grants – and this number is expected to rise over the next year. Mr. Sello Sethusha, Acting principal at the Tshwane North TVET College says “the Academy is going to positively impact through expanding on the College’s offering and on the community of Temba and Hammanskraal in that it will not only contribute to alleviate unemployment and poverty but also create jobs and contribute to the socio economic development of the Tshwane Metropolis”

The Academy is accredited by merSETA, meaning that students will graduate from the course with a recognised qualification. Dr Raymond Patel, merSETA’s Chief Executive Officer says: “Our partnership with the City of Tshwane, Samsung and the Tshwane North TVET College helps to address the shortage of an important skill in a credible way. We hope to promote further partnerships of this nature, to enable us to respond with quality training and development.”
