The De Aar town hall was packed to capacity with excited learners. The
learners had an opportunity to receive messages of encouragement and motivation
from delegates from the provincial Department of Education, Emthanjeni Municipality and
Pixey Ka Seme District Municipality. Services SETA presented the Post-School
Education and Training System with the Northern Cape Provincial context to it.
When the formalities were concluded, it was time
to visit the various exhibitions by other SETAs i.e. CETA, ETDP SETA, HWSETA,
LGSETA, W&RSETA; the provincial Department of Health (EMS), Department of
Social Development, Department of Roads and Public Works, Stats SA, Independent
Electoral Commission, local businesses and the Northern Cape Rural TVET College.
The exhibitions were interactive and informative
and we hope each learner in attendance learned something that may assist them
in the future.
We wish the matriculants well on their final exams and all their future
“Career expos are one of the
tools that the Services SETA uses to promote various options learners can
choose from after matric. We often find learners that are discouraged after not
it making into universities – these learners do not know that the Post School
Education System offers a number of opportunities at different levels. SETA
learning programmes provide opportunities for learners to develop skills that
learners can use to help them gain employment or be self-employed, Amanda
Buzo-Gqoboka, Services SETA CEO.
