“We encourage learners to focus because every minute, every hour and every day is important for them. They must not despair on the basis that probably they were disturbed or did not cover some certain amount of work and seize the opportunity by passing their matric,” ANC Ekurhuleni Chief Whip said.
ANC Chief Whip in Ekurhuleni also advised learners to consider making the country’s TVET Colleges their preferred choice of institutions for training and studying.
“South Africa needs skills such as engineering, boiler making, construction and other technical skills; TVET colleges offer IT, Motor Mechanics, Process Plant Operation, Electrical Engineering and Casting (Foundry) courses and all other training that are required to develop the country’s economy. We encourage our learners to equally consider TVET Colleges to accumulate skills so that they can either get employed or use those skills to employ themselves by starting their own businesses,” Cllr Dlabathi said.
