TVET Colleges Must Be Part Of Skills Development

Higher Education and Training Minister Naledi Pandor has challenged Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges to become part of the critical drive for skills development in South Africa.

“I want to see increasingly the TVET sector becoming a confident, able and very visible part of the skills institutions in South Africa. I want you to stop being shy cousins and to be very visible leaders in skills development in South Africa,” Pandor said.

The Minister made the remarks at the launch of the Gandhi Mandela Centre of Specialisation for Artisans Skills at Tshwane South TVET College in Pretoria West.

Pandor and India’s High Commissioner to South Africa, Ruchira Kamboj, launched the Gandhi Mandela Centre, where training will be imparted in four identified areas, including electrician, boilermaker, mechanical fitter and millwright.

The launch of the centre follows a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed by South Africa and India in July this year on the margins of the Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa (BRICS) Summit held in Sandton to provide for cooperation in setting up the centre.

The agreement was in recognition of South Africa’s desire to promote quality vocational education and training for young people, as well as the need for artisan skills in the country.
