Media Alert: WC Education Department to host the 3rd Skills Competition

15 September 2022

On Saturday, 17 September 2022 the WCED will be hosting our 3rd Skills Competition at Bellville Technical High School.

The Skills competition is dedicated to the promotion of the skilled trades and technologies as viable, first-choice career options to our youth. This competition aims to encourage young people to consider a career in skilled trades and technologies.

High School learners will be competing in various areas including brickwork, cabinetmaking, and welding. They will be constructing brick walls, creating furniture, and laying floors. Learners will be given 5 hours to complete the tasks.

Schools have selected candidates that will represent them at the Provincial Skills competition. Participation in the Skills Competition may provide the opportunity to advance to the National Skills Competition.

The media are invited to showcase these talented young learners!
