GOLDFIELDS TVET COLLEGE EARNS 1ST POSITION ON THE NATIONAL TVET COLLEGES DEBATE COMPETITIONS

Goldfields TVET College has done it again, shinning its light and displaying its mettle. Our Student Debate Team proved to be the A team amongst other students who participated at the National TVET Colleges Debate competitions held in Bloemfontein during August. The team comprised of two students Ms Keneilwe Mathengtheng NCV Level 4 Marketing Student and Ms Violet Makatsa NCV Level 4 Hospitality Student.

One could tell by the mood, tone and intensity of the subjects that affect the lives of  South African youth, that only presenters who came prepared and had earnest knowledge about topics would come out victorious! The focal topic that earned Goldfields 1st position was the question that: IS SOUTH AFRICA READY FOR A FEMALE PRESIDENT?

The College Executive Management extends a warm gratitude to Ms Olga Seate Communication Lecturer and Ms Constant Lithuge Students Support Services Officer for their hard work and ensuring that their coaching and mentoring of the students brand our students and that they fly up the College Banner!

KHEZA, Jonas Pitso, DOCTOR OF EDUCATION (CUT, FS)

Dr Pitso Kheza was born in Kroonstad and matriculated at Bodibeng Secondary School in the year 2000.  He obtained a Bachelor of Arts Degree in 2003 from Vista University; Bachelor of Psychology in 2005 and the Post Graduate Certificate in Education in 2008 from the Central University of Technology, Free State; a Master’s Degree in Education from the University of North West in 2014.  In 2017, he completed the Supply Chain Management Certificate from the University of the Free State.  He Graduated with a PhD from the Central University of Technology, Free State in 2018 under the supervision of Prof. G Alexander, PhD (UFS) and Prof. S.N Matoti, Ed.D (University of Bristol, UK).  Dr Pitso Kheza is a Senior Education Specialist in the Student Support Services Department at Goldfields TVET College.

 

The title of his thesis is “Designing a framework for the advancement of lecturer capacity in developing Graduate Attributes at a Technical Vocational Education and Training College.”

 

In this Mixed Methods Study, Dr Pitso Kheza examined the perceptions of students, lecturers and participants from industry on the role Technical and Vocational Education plays in skilling and upgrading the quality of students for the world of work, hence the need to develop lecturers’ capacity in enhancing and developing relevant and responsive Graduate Attributes. The quantitative data emanated from the questionnaires completed by 2000 students while the qualitative data emanated from ten focus group interviews, as well as an information-sharing workshop with students and lecturers. The participants’ perceptions of how the industry could be incorporated into TVET activities were thoroughly scrutinised. The study concludes in recommending that all relevant stakeholders need to be given a space in the TVET sector to assist in the development of graduates for the world of work and a transformed society.   Strong links between   South African TVET colleges, the labour market and civil society have to be established in the form of Work Integrated Learning and Workplace Based Experience.
