The closure of mines in the Stilfontein and Orkney area, has led to mine workers becoming redundant and as a result, that cohort of employees has become a target for the college on reskilling programmes. Furthermore, linkages and partnerships are developed with alternative employers such as Local Government Municipalities. Taking cue from the state of province address delivered by the Premier, new emerging economic sectors were identified as Agriculture, Tourism, Engineering and Finance.
Vuselela TVET College responds to these economic drivers by implementing a diverse and responsive programme qualification mix. The college, in preparing for this 2-year strategy is aligning itself with the identified emerging economic sectors and in line with Government Medium-Term Framework. The planned increase in Finance, Economic & Accounting enrolments at our Potchefstroom and Klerksdorp campuses is evident that we want to produce a competent and skilled youth that would contribute to the economic growth of the province.
