In his welcoming address, Mr Khehla Mokoena, Lekoa Shandu Deputy Principal expressed profound appreciation to the VUT team. He said their school rarely gets such visits as they are often forgotten.

This career guidance was prepared explicitly for grade 12 learners pursuing commercial and semi-commercial subjects, mainly because they are compatible with the retail business management career path.

VUT’s Student Recruitment Practitioner: Dimakatso Jingela, together with the rest of the team, explored the prospectus, detailing career paths and opportunities at VUT, funding and bursaries, and they also explained entry requirements and the application process. In more detail, they informed the learners about diploma qualifications in retail business management accompanied by a powerful motivational video prepared by Ms Zinhle Dlamini- Lecturer in the Department of Marketing, Retail Business and Sports Management.
