RAY Nkonyeni Municipality in partnership with Department of Education and Ugu District Municipality hosted its annual career guidance exhibition at the Ugu Sports and Leisure Centre on Monday and Tuesday.

A total of 30 high schools were invited to the expo with 3 500 pupils attending.

Hibiscus Coast Youth Development Manager Phumlani Mzobe said exhibitors from various tertiary institutions armed pupils with bursaries, admission and career counselling and opportunities.

Mzobe said stakeholders at the event included the University of KwaZulu-Natal, Durban University of Technology, Mangosuthu University of Technology, Tswane University of Technology, University of Zululand, Berea Technical College, Central Technical College, Oval and the Department of Education.

“Other institutions partnering were CAO, Department of Agriculture, Cedara, South Coast Tourism, SIACA, Mancosa,” said Mzobe.

He said as the host department of Ray Nkonyeni Municipality, he can confirm that these sessions are very helpful.

“As a result of these sessions there is an increasing number of local pupils enrolling in these institutions. We are also excited that the expo assists us to cover pupils mostly in rural schools since we know that those are the less resourced schools,” said Mzobe.

He said the partnership with all the stakeholders has been very productive and has been growing stronger each year since 2011.
