Work Integrated Learning

TVET

Our Work Integrated Learning programmes are designed to allow participants to complete the practical WIL component of their studies, paving a clear dedicated path to obtaining a National N Diploma qualification.

The WIL programmes consist of workshop based and experiential training elements, however, the possibility of incorporating a host employment programme also exist, the latter being an on-the-job experience phase. These programmes are adapted to the requirements of TVET qualifications as well as the area of specialisation of the student.

Workshop based training participants are trained on specific workshop skills in a range of disciplines and assessed on their ability to implement such skills before qualifying to progress to experiential training. During experiential training, participants conduct the planning and implementation of engineering projects from start to finish, thereby integrating knowledge and skills developed during workshop-based training into comprehensive & complete solutions. The on-the-job programme is real life application of skills at host employers, where participants will gain valuable & relevant experience. The on-the-job programme will only be incorporated if requested.

The standard programme is, what we call, the 9 + 9 programme, meaning 9 months’ workshop based and 9 months’ experiential training. On request we also provide the 6 + 6 + 6 programme, where you have 6 months’ workshop-based training, 6 months experiential training and 6 months on-the-job experience.

If you are not sure where to start please talk to us.

Our WIL for TVET students typically run as per the following, however, we adapt & customise programmes to client requirements, without compromising the core outcomes as required by TVET colleges. The programme below describes the 18-month programme, however, we do offer a 24-month programme as required by various TVET colleges.

Work Integrated Learning Programmes:

Whether you require Workshop Based Training, Experiential Training and On-the-job experience, only Experiential Training and On-the-job experience, or only On-the-job experience, we have the right solution for you. If you are not sure where to start contact us today.

The 9 months’ workshop-based training programme follows one of two tracks, depending on the area of specialisation of the student, although both tracks provide exposure to the same subjects, they focus on certain areas related to their discipline of specialisation.

    • For Electrical Engineering students the programme are as follows:
      • Electrical workshop (9 weeks)
      • Electronics workshop (9 weeks)
      • Automation/ Instrumentation workshop (9 weeks)
      • Carpentry workshop (3 weeks)
      • Fitting & Turning workshop (3 weeks)
      • Boilermaking and Welding workshop (3 weeks)
    • For Mechanical Engineering students the programme are as follows:
      • Carpentry workshop (9 weeks)
      • Fitting & Turning workshop (9 weeks)
      • Boilermaking & Welding workshop (9 weeks)
      • Electrical workshop (3 weeks)
      • Electronics workshop (3 weeks)
      • Automation/ Instrumentation workshop (3 weeks)

The 9 months’ experiential training programme also follows one of two tracks depending on the area of specialisation of the student, where projects are focussed around specific subjects related to the discipline of specialisation.

    • For Electrical Engineering students the programme includes:
      • Energy Management
        • Energy metering and recommendations on improved energy efficiency
      • PV Solar
        • Solar system design, Installation and Maintenance
      • Electronics and Repairs
        • Cellphone and Laptop repair & rework
      • UJ Maintenance
        • General electrical maintenance
      • Automation and Instrumentation
        • PLC and Robotics
      • PCB
        • PCB Manufacturing
  •  
    • For Mechanical Engineering students the programme includes:
      • CAD & 3D Printing/Additive Manufacturing
        • Basic drawing office on read manufacturing drawings
      • CAM & CNC Workshop

      • Carpentry & CNC Router Workshop
        • Operate a CNC Router
      • UJ Maintenance
        • General Mechanical Maintenance

This is only applicable where the 6 + 6 + 6 programmed is followed and not during the standard 9 + 9 programme. During the 24 weeks’ on-the-job programme the students will be placed at host employers to gain experiences in relevant applications, including the following.

    • Drawing and project office
      • Read and Interpret basic engineering drawings
    • Manufacturing and Production
      • Produce any engineering parts using machinery
    • Installation and Maintenance
      • Perform Installation and Maintenance on machinery
  • Training Type: Work Integrated Learning
  • Intake: Flexible Intake
  • Duration: 6 to 18 months
  • Who Should Apply: TVET Students with N6 requiring the WIL component to obtain their National N Diploma
  • Endorsements: University of Johannesburg, Vaal University of Technology, Tshwane University of Technology, Central University of Technology, Mangosuthu University of Technology, Walter Sisulu University, University of South Africa
