Perseverance paid off for the Social Auxiliary Workers from Kheth’Impilo
The opportunity to follow their dream of becoming Social Auxiliary Workers didn’t come easy for 17 learners of the not-for-profit organization, Kheth’Impilo, situated in Nelson Mandela Bay. These young people grabbed the opportunity with both hands when their employer contracted Continuing Education for Africa (CEFA) to train their employees in their workplace. Because CEFA is able to take training to your doorstep over more than 60 delivery point across South Africa, the Kheth’Impilo staff could continue working while they studied and whilst they did their workplace integrate learning at their organisations.
It was not all moonshine and roses, though. During December 2018 the organization was forced to close their doors when funding was suspended, but that did not stop these ecstatic young people. They found themselves new workplace organisations who were willing to accommodate them to complete their practical training. Perseverance payed off when they finally received their certificates last week. Again, the journey wasn’t easy. They had to travel 760 km all the way to Cape Town to take part in the Certificate Ceremony with their fellow learners from all over the country. The proud recipients appear on the picture.
