EIGHT Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Colleges will collaborate to host the first TVET Career Festival in the Northern and Western Cape during TVET Month.

Existing TVET students will be given the opportunity to engage with employers while high school pupils will be exposed to “the world of work opportunities “ which presents good employment prospects.

“We are looking to give as many current and prospective students the opportunity to be exposed to as many possible employment opportunities that they could follow once they have completed their higher education studies,” Wendy Adams, Work Integrated Learning Northern and Western Cape TVET College Chair, said yesterday.

In doing this, the forum believes that the career festival will spark the interest of the youth to continue looking for job opportunities in the new and growing sectors of the economy that will ultimately combat the unemployment rate that has now grown to a staggering 29%.

The Kimberly event will take place at the Phatsimang Campus on August 21, from 9am to 2pm.
