Sundays River Valley Municipality hosts Annual Career Expo as part of the youth month programmes

 

 


Posted: 14 June 2023


To ensure that more young people get an opportunity to further their studies, acquire professional skills and decrease unemployment and poverty levels in the area, the Sundays River Valley Municipality in partnership with its stakeholders such as South African National Parks (Addo Elephant Park) hosted the second Annual Career Expo in Kirkwood recently.

The expo was attended by over 300 grade 12 learners from all the five high schools in the area. Exhibitors at the expo included universities, TVET colleges, government departments, State owned enterprises and private companies to present about careers paths and funding opportunities in their respective institutions.

Speaking at the event, the Mayor of SRVM Councillor Simphiwe Rune said an event of this nature is very important for the youth of the area to fight unemployment.

"Many young people here are unemployed and are now dependent on the seasonal jobs at the citrus farms and packhouses during the citrus season. We want to end that and have young people who will become professionals and entrepreneurs especially in the agricultural sector," he said.

Cllr Rune also announced that the municipality will also be launching a second leg of the career guidance initiative towards end of the year which will focus on grade 9 learners to ensure that they make informed decisions when they choose learning areas for grade 10.

"The challenge that we have identified is that learners just choose subjects without necessarily understanding if their chosen subjects will assist them in getting to the career paths they are interested in," he concluded.
