Arcelor Mittal Science Centre hosted the Vaal Career Exhibition at the Arcelor Mittal Science Centre (Sebokeng) on Thursday. It was attended by more than ten schools. The Science centre invited a number of institutions to exhibit their indigenous companies.
Well accredited institutions like the Wits University, Roster Technical, FET Colleges, Unisa, University of Pretoria, Tshwane University of Technology, Limpopo, NSFAS, Belgium Campus Universal College, Outcomes University of Fort Hare, VUT, North West University, Oval International Campus, Jeppe College, and the CTI College University of Venda represented their companies.
It was an insightful day for the learners and most of them are working hard to complete matric in order to enroll at one of these institutions. Alinah Masobela, the science centre coordinator says they are pleased the number or learners that showed up. It really shows that there are parents and teachers who are seeing the bigger picture for the future of this country through education.
We are aiming to elevate their minds. We are looking for the opportunity where learners can see the greater side of life when they embrace higher education and how important is it for our country to have professionals like doctors, pilots, scientists, actors and other fields, says Masobela. Masobela also adds that learners had a chance to acquire information pertaining to different available careers, general employment opportunities and requirements for further study.
This was conducted in order for the learners to acquire realistic and understandable information for different careers prior to choosing subjects at school. This career expo also included information on bursaries and scholarships to encourage learners to enroll.
Big-Bang-theory true without education!
