Happy #FutureFriday everyone!

On this #FutureFriday we are proud to celebrate Khanya Sele, an Engineering and Related Design student at Boland TVET College. Sele, commenced with her studies at the Worcester Campus in 2019. She is currently busy with her final year and will be concluding her programme at the end of 2021. 

Sele is passionate about her field of study. She explained, “This course offers great opportunity for growth especially taking into account that we are in the midst of 4IR. It really offers you room to grow and show what you are capable of. This is especially true for women pursuing this career path.”

In her opinion, the fact that a learner receives theoretical as well as practical skills and knowledge places you above the rest when entering the job market.  This young aspiring artisan has big dreams. In 10 years she sees herself as an engineer being able to create jobs through her own company for other young aspiring artisans. The entrepreneurial skills taught to students during their time at a TVET College empowers them to start their own business and become not only a positive influence in their own communities but also an example of what can be achieved.

Her message to prospective students is to make sure they do some research to ensure they enroll for the correct course. Sele is a true advocate for the development of women artisans. “Do not think just because you may be smaller in stature that you cannot take up a prominent space in any workshop. Women can do anything they put their minds to and in many instances outshine their male counterparts.”

Not only is Sele part of the Boland College SRC but also a top performer in her class. She is proud to be part of one of the top performing TVET Colleges in the Western Cape
