How INTEC College is bridging the scarce skills gap

In a recent article, Professor Carel van Aardt, a researcher at the Bureau of Market Research, spoke about the need for providing graduates with a quality education that prepared them for scarce skills industries.

 

It’s a sentiment shared by INTEC College, a leader in distance education. The college has been a prominent fixture on the South African scene for 111 years. In this time it has revised its curriculum and approach to ensure that its graduates excel in the workplace.

 

“We’ve always ensured our education is sensitive to the work climate”, acknowledges INTEC brand manager, Arusha Ramcharan. “INTEC has always introduced new courses and ensured they are relevant for a thriving career”.

 

In 2007 the college was the first South African institution to offer the internationally recognised CompTIA HTI+ Home Technology Installation Certificate. Its 173 accredited courses are designed for in-demand fields from business, mechanical engineering, quantity surveying to supply chain management.

 

In addition to the type of education provided, INTEC has taken steps to ensure that its students benefit from a holistic experience. INTEC’s expert lecturers bring a wealth of industry experience to the educational journey. The college’s Academic Advising Centre provides additional academic support so students stay on track during their studies. The college is also working on a Learner Management system which will provide easy access to study material, online support and programme updates.

 

It’s no wonder the cutting edge college has achieved popularity with a youth market. This year it was voted one of South Africa’s coolest colleges in the Sunday Times Generation Next Awards.

 

“We’re proud of our achievements and know our commitment to excellent has produced impressive graduates”, says Ramcharan. “In order to help other career entrants and working professionals we’ve made a quality education more accessible #TheINTECWay”.

INTEC recently launched an exciting campaign to increase the amount of scarce skills in the country. With 30% off their top accredited courses, South Africans have an opportunity to fulfil their ambitions and increase their earning potential in a tough economy.
