Change the world


To promote participation in the employment sector in the city, an education initiative of Nelson Mandela University and the Eastcape Training Centre (ETC) culminated in an awards ceremony at the University's Business School in Summerstrand last week.

Twenty students who form part of a retrenchment assistance programme offered through the joint venture excitedly took to the stage to receive academic recognition certificates on Friday.

This capped their passage through the programme from about 500 students who have completed it in the past year.

The top performers, a selection of 10 each from the two institutions, achieved excellent grading in various soft skills and practical training courses.

Accredited and funded by the manufacturing, engineering and related services sector education and training authority (MerSETA), the programme is in its inception, having launched in September 2021.
