SEKHUKHUNE – Local student, Mahlatse Nkosi, was among the top achievers at the recent Tool, Die and Mouldmaking (TDM) foundation’s programme ceremony.

The function was hosted by the National Tooling Initiative Programme (NTIP) and the Limpopo Department of Economic Development, Environment and Tourism at the Tiveka Game Lodge near Polokwane.

Sixty per cent of the students from Lephalale and 88 per cent from Steelpoort who were selected for the programme, successfully completed their studies in 2016 and were rewarded with certificates of acknowledgement.

“Forty-four per cent of the 146 foundation students are female, and the highlight of the event was when two of them, Mahlatse Nkosi and Morongwa Motsuki from Lephalale received the awards for the 2016 overall achievers at their respective training institutions,” said Tanya Aucamp, communications manager at NTIP.

Dennis Maduma from Steelpoort also won the Best Trade Theory Award.

The programme is a joint initiative between the Intsimbi National Tooling Industry and the Department of Trade and Industry with NTIP as the executing company facilitating the learning process on behalf of training institutions. The programme provides students entry into the manufacturing and tooling industry and was designed, developed and implemented as a feeder programme for the artisan programme with a focus on remedial mathematics, science and English.
