The graduation for learners at the Chemical Industries Education and Training Authority (CHIETA).

This month, Media Works hosted a graduation ceremony for 15 learners with disabilities from the community of QwaQwa, Free State. The ceremony recognised learners who passed and completed the AET Level 1 course through Media Works.

The Chemical Industries Education and Training Authority (CHIETA) funded the project, which was aimed at providing skills and training to unemployed and disabled members of the QwaQwa community.

Thulani Shabalala, the CHIETA Gauteng and Central Regional Manager, spoke at the event about the benefits, and importance, of adult education and training.

The AET Level 1 course seeks to educate and train adults in the areas of communication and numeracy.

The CHIETA-funded project ran from August to December 2017 and received support from various stakeholders. We would like to acknowledge SASSA, Beisanang Mabewane NGO, the ward councilors from the Maluti a Phofung Municipality, and the Department of Social Development.

Congratulations to all graduates. We wish them all the best with their future endeavors.
