IDWALA Carbonates held a graduation ceremony for their social and labour plan, adult education training (AET) programme students at Izingolweni last week.

The event was held at the Izingolweni Tribal Court building.

AET pupils were presented with pre-level one Zulu and pre-level one English, Ulwazi Literacy Training certificates by company representative Linda Thoms, after which the AET graduates enjoyed a braai, hosted by Idwala Carbonates for their achievements.

Idwala Carbonates Human Resource Trainer and Co-ordinator, “Joe” Mahadeo said the company started funding the phase one education programme at Izingolweni in 2016, finishing in May 2017 and June 2017 respectively.

There were 16 AET pupils, six of whom had enrolled for the pre-level one Zulu literacy and 10 for the pre-level one English literacy programme.

It takes one year to complete each phase or level in AET programmes, and the company works with the inkosi of the tribal area and stakeholders to set up the programme.

Idwala Carbonates aims to uplift the community to prepare individuals academically so they become marketable to companies in obtaining better jobs and able to further their education,” said Mahadeo.

Mahadeo said a dream of AET pupils was to be able to read and write in English.

Mahadeo and Thoms fulfilled this dream when graduating AET pupils were not only able to read and write, they also gave a perfect speech in English.
