During October 2018, The College hosted a World Skills Competition in masonry (bricklaying) that was held at Tosa Campus in collaboration with the Construct Industry Development Board(CIDB) on behalf of World Skills South Africa. World Skills Competition is an International competition held bi-annually at the elected venue around the world. The last competition was held in 2017 at Dubai. This year’s competitions will be held in Kazan, Russia.
Lebohang Molefi a student at Tosa Campus won the Provincial leg of the competitions in bricklaying last year. All this was achieved under the supervision and guidance of Ivan van der Ross, bricklaying Lecturer at Tosa Campus. On the 04th February Lebohang built a model for the purpose of best preparing him for the National Competitions which will be held on 23rd of February 2019. At this level all Provincial winners in bricklaying will compete against each other to enable them to compete in Kazan later this year.
The focus of this competition is centred around many other trades which comprise of: plumbing; hospitality; carpentry; welding; automotive repairs; fitting and turning; hairdressing etcetera. The College is excited and looking forward to support Lebohang Molefi in Durban and is hopeful that he will fly the College Banner and represent the College well at the International competitions in Kazan.
