2021 TVET 4TH INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION (4IR) DIGITAL SKILLS WORKSHOP
The year 2021 will be the THIRD year of implementing the TVET 4th Industrial Revolution Skills Initiative and we are very honored and proud to be part of this flagship initiative which has really brought tremendous respect to the TVET College sector. We will forever be grateful to be one of Cisco Networking Academies that is part of this ICT staff development training at our public TVET colleges.
We have been inundated with requests from Colleges to now begin to build educator capacity beyond just Networking and focus on core 4IR subjects. In response to this timely request, we have decided to introduce the following courses for the January 2021 workshop:
Internet of Things (IoT)
The January 2021 workshop will therefore be reaching out to all TVET Colleges, both public and private, including those that are not offering Information Technology & Computer Science. Digitization is now the basis of every area of study, no field should be excluded from this initiative. The Internet of Things and Networking are relevant to the engineering field. Python Programming and Cybersecurity are relevant to Information Technology and Computer Science. Data Science is also relevant to a number of fields within the TVET sector including Management, Marketing, Finance and Information Technology. As per the tradition of these workshops, Cisco sponsors the training of staff and colleges cover the cost for meals, learning materials and internal exam costs which will be R6 500.00 for every member of staff attending the five-day workshops.
