The acting deputy director for student support services at the Motheo Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) College, Thami Madalane, has received a feather in his cap in the form of a coveted international accolade.

He was awarded the Idahlynn Karre International Exemplary Leadership Award for 2017, becoming the second South African to have received this prestigious accolade. The other recipient was Dipiloane Phutsisi, Motheo’s principal. She was honoured last year.

Madalane was honoured at the annual International Leadership Conference of the Chair Academy held in March. This year’s edition was staged in Florida in the United States of America (USA).

Madalane was honoured for the certification rate increase from 6% in 2012 to 55% in July 2016, the successful introduction of the enforcement of minimum requirements for admission to the college, minimum requirements for movement to the next level and the implementation of common assessment process for all delivering sites at the college. Recognition was also given for long service to the TVET sector and excellent work done at the then Thaba Nchu Technical College, which has since been incorporated into the Motheo TVET College.

Madalane also assisted with implementation of the annual student parliament where relevant academic issues are discussed, and with expediting the issuing of pending results for all delivering sites of the institute.

The Chair Academy, a department of the Mesa Community College, and the Maricopa County Community College District, are dedicated to delivering exemplary leadership development. The academy has offered leadership development programmes for college and university leaders since 1992. Leadership programmes are offered at the organisational, state, regional, national, and international level.

This International Leadership Conference attracts experienced distinguished keynote speakers from around the world to give presentations.

The Motheo executive management and council have congratulated Madalane on his achievement.
