Prospective students enquiring information about VUT courses
Kingdom of God Ministries Church in Zamdela hosted a Youth Awareness Programme on Saturday, June 24 2017. The event was a career awareness initiative for youth from the church and different local high schools. VUT was invited to provide a career exhibition at the event.
The programme commenced at 10am. Recently graduated youth from surrounding areas shared their experiences at tertiary level. Challenges and opportunities faced at institutions of higher learning were discussed, especially when it comes to balancing studies with a social life. Ms Kediemetse Mokotsi, Director of Marketing and Public Relations, brought her team, including Faculty Administrators, staff from the call centre and current students, to provide relevant information to students. The President of Enactus, Mr Masingita Marhungani, was also there.
In her speech, Ms Mokotsi emphasised the importance of taking relevant subjects at an earlier stage to ensure students could make good career choices at the right time. Many learners battle to further their studies after grade 12 due to a lack of information. This was a platform where they were advised on different careers, when to apply at institutions as well as financial assistance.
