Borolong Vocational Training Centre holds graduation

Barolong Vocational Training Centre students have been advised to register their companies so that they put the skills acquired to good use, and to utilise various schemes availed by government.

Speaking at the first ever prize giving ceremony recently, Enviro Kings director, Dr Edwin Dikoloti said it was worthwhile for them to create their own luck.

He said unemployment was high and that entrepreneurship was needed.

He said government alone could not be held accountable and suggested that the private sector should also come on board.

‘‘Play your part in employment creation,’’ he said.

Despite the unemployment rate being high, he said they should not give up and to remember that they were good enough.

Dr Dikoloti said he was proud of the trainees because they were providing a real solution to human need.

“Skilled tradesmen produce the food we eat, clothes we put on and the homes we live in,” he said.

He further reminded the graduates that their careers made it easy for them to enter the trade and to get started with almost no experience.

Giving an overview of the school, the acting deputy principal, Mr Edward Mothowagae said ever since the institution was handed to government in 2011, it was their first prize giving ceremony.

He said the institution before government took over was managed by the community board and the Seventh Day Adventist Church.

Mr Mothwagae explained that the institution offered skills that included the national certificate in accounting and business, certificate in computer studies, livestock and crop farming.

He said their voctional training was the only one offering national craft certificate in textiles and dressmaking in the country.

Students and lecturers who performed well received awards, and the event was graced by different performers from the students. ENDS
