“I always take pleasure in attending graduation ceremonies. To graduate is an achievement. Today, we gather to celebrate a monumental achievement, the graduation of remarkable students of Vuselela TVET College.

“This moment marks the culmination of years of hard work, dedication and resilience. Each one of you, has faced unique challenges and triumph along the way; and it is these experiences that have shaped who you are today,” said Manamela.

Manamela was part of the dignitaries, who conferred students with their qualifications. This year, the college boasts 946 graduates.

Manamela explained that the Department of Higher Education and Training is on the verge of ensuring that a bulk number of TVET college graduates are provided with work opportunities in order to get work experience.

“The DHET is working closely with our 21 Sector Education and Training Authorities to ensure that at least 20 000 N6 graduates are provided with the opportunity to be placed in the workplace for a period of 18 months, so that you can qualify for the national diploma. My appeal is for you to make optimal use of this opportunity,” said Manamela.

Manamela told students to foster and be agents of education, innovation and change in their communities and the workplace. He additionally said, students must embrace the spirit of lifelong learning.

“As graduates of a TVET institution, you bear the responsibility of driving innovation, fostering economic growth and uplifting communities. Whether you choose to further your studies, enter the workforce, or become entrepreneurs; I urge you to remain steadfast in your commitment to excellence and continuous learning.

“Remember that the true measure of success lies not in individual achievements, but in the positive impact you make on the lives of others,” he said.

He further thanked the College Council, management and lecturers of the college for their unwavering dedication: “Your tireless efforts have helped shape the future of tomorrow, and for that, the DHET is eternally grateful,” said Manamela.
