De Aar Career Expo

Posted On : 2019-08-13

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.

 “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.

We wish the matriculants well on their final exams and all their future endeavors.
