False By TVET College held two days of exhibitions and demonstrations, all in the name of career exploration.

Fish Hoek, Muizenberg, Westlake, Mitchells Plain and Khayelitsha campuses each activated a programme to make the open day a success.

They welcomed schools, NGO’s and the general public to find out what kind of subjects the college offered for aspiring engineers.

“Try a Skill” activities and industry engagement was the menu of the day. This was complemented by tours of programme facilities, live demonstrations and introductions to extra-curriculum activities. An estimated 1500 people attended the open day event.

Special exhibitors included SETA’s and companies, seminar sessions, which unpacked the growing trends and managing expectations of individuals investigating career options.

Cassiem Savahl, Life-Orientation Teacher at Fairmount High School said: “Once again, False Bay TVET College went the extra mile. The programmes were extremely slick, providing meaningful insight. More importantly, the learners responded eagerly and enthusiastically. I believe that the Open Day has provided them with valuable information in order to make informed career decision.”

“False Bay TVET College would like to thank all its industry partners and community stakeholders for their contribution to the 2016 Open Day.

It is through these collaborative engagements that we are able to effectively communicate with the youth to make attainable career decisions for success.”
