Making Technical and Vocational Education Training the First Choice
Miles Thies, Director of Digital Learning Services, Eiffel Corp once said “”Artificial Intelligence is going to revolutionise the job market and with TVETS being an essential part of education in South Africa, it’s vital for them to develop digital teaching strategies that meet the challenges”.
This was a statement made in 2018 , fast forward to 2020 and its resounding truth can be heard well into the future. With the 4th industrial revolution looming, institutions need to review their teaching methods and adapt to those with improved methods of imparting skills to students.
TVET colleges are an important piece in South Africa’s education system as they address a skills gap in the country. A blended approach, in-person in combination with digital learning will create a platform for the best outcomes. We are in a time where we have to constantly learn, unlearn and re-learn, therefore the need for a learning growth mindset is now more important than ever. This also applies to our own personal development.
So whether it is a ‘Whats-app study group’, FaceBook Q&A session, great strides are made from humble beginnings in innovation. It is our responsibility to provide our students with the right tools for them to take up space in the economy.We therefore must take pride in producing quality graduates that are highly employable and also posses a resilient entrepreneurial spirit.
Stay Inspired. Stay Safe.
Yours in Service,
