Bronvin Arendse

My one year at CEFA played a key role in my overall development - they are one of the best colleges I have studied at. In my experience, students from any background can get the chance to be exceptional if they have the desire to pick up new knowledge and get fresh experience here, along with the help of all the incredibly friendly faculty members and staff. They are very eager to help and just genuinely interested in sharing their expertise with students, and this is one of the motivating factors that keeps us going at the college. The college encourages career development, which helps you choose the course that's ideal for you and identify the kind of jobs that are most compatible with your background and qualifications. I'm grateful to all my teaching and non-teaching faculty members for their continuous support throughout my journey at CEFA


I officially started 1st of June at my new job as a SOCIAL AUXILIARY WORKER, and being permanently employed. I am so happy and I thank God for this opportunity, and I am looking forward to Graduation in July, as I’m now officially Qualified. I want to thank CEFA and their friendly staff team. I would also like to motivate all the others that haven’t received their certificates yet, to hang on and be patient, as they will eventually receive them and that they should not give up.


I was awarded a Certificate of Appreciation by Valley Development Projects. All the money in the world cannot replace my certificate, I am over the moon!


I was studying at CEFA from 2016-2017. In May 2018, I got a permanent job at Homestead Organisation based in Khayelitsha where I did my practical work. I still didn’t have my Certificate with me but because i did my practical under my mentor, I showed dedication, hard work and willingness to work, and not once did I miss my practical sessions. I was there on time and I did as told by the mentors and other staff members in the Organisation.
