EThekwini assists high school learners prepare for tertiary
​TO HELP high school learners adequately prepare for tertiary after matriculating, the South Durban
Basin (SDB) embarked on a three-day career guidance campaign visiting school around the City. The campaign started at Isiphingo High School in Isiphingo on 19 April, where learners were encouraged to start preparing for their future while it was still early.

Ward 90 Councillor Sunil Brijmohan said they have many cases of matriculants coming to their office looking for employment owing to the fact that they were not admitted into any tertiary institution because they did not choose their courses on time. “Pupils need to choose their courses while they still have time and they need to choose them wisely as the career path they choose will determine their future,” he said.

Brijmohan also thanked teachers for the role they play in shaping the future of learners. EThekwini Municipal Academy Project Officer Thulani Ndlovu encouraged learners to visit their office to find out more about the experiential learning programmes that the Municipality offers. “Our department has a programme where we take high school learners for five days and assign them with an expert in whatever field they want to pursue.

Learners are placed with employers primarily to observe and learn,” he said. SDB Coordinator Zamangema Mngadi urged learners to choose their courses wisely. “Do not follow your friends when choosing the career you want to pursue because you might not be as passionate as your friend,” said Mngadi. The visited schools included Strelitzia High School, Isiphingo High School and Reunion High School.

During the campaign pupils were given booklets from institutions of higher learning including the Durban University of Technology, University of KwaZulu-Natal and Elangeni College so they can read what career they might want to consider.
