Boland College prides itself on the vast range of partnerships it has that ranges from training suppliers to work integrated learning placement both national and international.
One of the eight identified millennium goals alert to the establishment of a global partnership for development which Boland College embraces in strengthening our mandate with industry.
Through industry, companies can collaborate with us to build the capacity to deliver the skills that the different sectors require. These mutually rewarding relationships provide a sustainable partnership, which will be of wider social and economic benefit to the country.
As we are striving to uphold the theme of DHET stating that the workplace should be turned into a training space, we have had to focus on sourcing relevant partners to enable our exit-level and occupational students to gain relevant working experience. WIL (Work Integrated Learning) is seen as an important way to improve the quality of teaching and learning, as well as to attain greater alignment between the theoretical component and the skills needs prescribed by industry. As our placement market changed, we had to critically look at our product, as well as our brand.
The transition of students from a theoretical training environment into the world of work can be an unsettling experience for students who are not prepared for the complexities and rigors of entering the job market, hence our constant interventions in the form of job readiness workshops and interventions.
The college is constantly busy to partner with industry in order to increase our footprint in education and training to ensure that we provide our learners with the best opportunities whilst at the college and when they graduate.
Boland College was one of 26 colleges nationally awarded Centre of Specialisation (CoS) status. Boland College was given a welding component and through this initiative the DHET will enable all the identified Centre’s of Specialisation to pilot the new QCTO artisan qualifications in 13 priority trades.
