A Memorandum of Agreement was recently signed between the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) and the Career HUB (University of Pretoria, Mamelodi campus) to foster future cooperation to assist a tertiary going awareness in the Mamelodi precinct.
With the help of DHET’s online National Career Advice Portal (NCAP), learners are assessed for subject choice through the Career HUB. The purpose of the assessments was to help the learners to choose the right subjects based on their personality and interest.
Eight alumni from the Extended Curriculum Programmes were trained by Ms Bridgette Makgareetsa to assist the learners of whom some have never experienced a computer before.
The specific results per learner were printed out and returned to the schools for Life Orientation teachers to assist learners with their subject choices.
General feedback is given to parents and learners during the Career Fair Saturday so learners could also visit exhibitions of their choice afterwards. Parents and learners were very positive about the assistance in this regard from the university and we are looking forward to future cooperation towards tertiary readiness and awareness through the Career HUB.
