FIVE students studying Beauty Therapy at the Motheo FET College Bloemfontein Campus are through to the next leg of the World Skills competition for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges.

They were chosen during the college’s competition held over two days in Bloemfontein. The candidates mastered the skills of their trade in hair care and beauty and nail technology.

They are Bianca Turner, Queen Seeku and Mandisa Tshabalala, who obtained first, second and third prize respectively in the Beauty Technology Category.

Madelein van Wyngaardt and Wilmi van der Walt were winners in the Hair Care Category. They will compete against winners of other colleges and the winners will go through to the nationals in Durban in January 2017. The winners at the national leg of the competition will compete at the 2016-’17 World Skills competition for TVET colleges in October 2017 at Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates.

The winners of the Motheo FET College where chosen by a panel of judges who have expertise in beauty technology and hair care.

The participants must be 22 years old in 2017 to be elligible for this competition.

This skills developmental initiative is aimed at addressing the shortage of artisans in South Africa and at equipping them with perfect skills acquired during the terms of study, as well as giving them the platform to start their own businesses.

The Motheo College hosted the Hair Care and Beauty Technology competition. The other categories to follow are creative arts and fashion, graphic design technology, social and professional services, hairdressing, transportation and logistics, auto body repair and car painting (spray painting).

The staging of the World Skills South Africa competition for TVET colleges in South Africa followed an initiative by Deputy Minister of Higher Education and Training Mduduzi Manana, who signed a memorandum of understanding between the Department of Higher Education, TVET colleges and various stakeholders with the chief objective of empowering graduates.
