Makhosi Khoza of ECR makes important announcement at INTEC Colleges 173 launch

Popular radio personality on ECR, businessman and proud INTEC student, Makhosi Khoza was the key attraction at INTEC Colleges 173 accredited programmes launch, where he announced that he is INTECs Brand Ambassador.

INTEC College launched their 173 new accredited programmes and handed R20 000 worth of bursaries to key industry professionals, at a breakfast with a difference at the Blue Waters Hotel on Friday, 4 April, 2014.
The breakfast was attended by over 50 top companies in KwaZulu-Natal. INTECs 173 accredited programmes were endorsed by the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA), which is a statutory body, regulated in terms of the National Quality Framework (NQF) Act. SAQA is mandated by legislation to oversee the development and implementation of the NQF.

The event included keynote addresses from SAQA and the South African Board of People Practices (SABPP) as well as entertainment from Mo Magic, who brought his own charisma to the event by demonstrating the 173 programmes with magic.

Assistant Director for SAQA, Peter Bosch said, SAQA is proud to be associated with INTEC College and our presence here today is our endorsement of the 173 programmes.

Charmaine Steenkamp of JDG Financial Services, Neermalla Gounder of EXR Construction and Celeste Bloom of Life Entabeni Hospital now have the opportunity to choose from one of INTEC Colleges five schools including, Business School, Computer School, Creative School, Technical School and Vocational School, and pursue one of the 173 programmes of their dreams.

The 173 programmes include courses in various disciplines ranging from Accounting, Marketing, Human Resources, Paralegal Studies, Computer Studies, Fashion Design, Interior Decorating, Beauty Care, Radio Broadcasting, Electrical and Draughting, Woodwork, Chemistry, Early Childhood Development, Healthcare and Tourism, among others.

According to the General Manager for INTEC College, Martin Koch, The launch reinforces INTECs partnership with industries.
