Mr Peter Mudau - Acting Principal

Staff Diary - January 2022

The past two years have been difficult; the college has been operating under a severe cloud brought about by the pandemic, having to deal different COVID–19 variants, that distracted from the teaching and learning. Even though it was difficult to adjust to the anomalies, we had to contend with this deadly disease. It seems as if we will have this pandemic for a very long time, so we should brace ourselves and continue to observe all measures put in place for us to prevent cross-infection of the COVID-19.

In the midst of this challenge, let me recognise and appreciate the incredible efforts and dedication displayed by the staff throughout these difficult two years. The commitment in portraying the college in a good and positive light cannot go unnoticed. It is through every member of the staff, who have demonstrated devotion, loyalty, and determination in every part of their chores that made Ekurhuleni West TVET College stand out amongst other Colleges in the country. The EWC staff always exemplify tenacity and perseverance through their actions. I am immensely honoured to be counted amongst the staff of EWC.

2021 has been marked by noteworthy achievements. I wish to note and make special mention of some of the outstanding performance and services achieved:

  • In the Report 191 Business Studies June 2021 results, we took position 2 in the Gauteng and Free State region and position number 4 nationally.
  • We have fully implemented the Learner Management System, which helps lecturers engage with students through technology.
  • We successfully implemented the required CISCO curriculum for Life Skills and Computer Literacy Level 2, and Computer Hardware and Software Level 3, as well as Data Communication and Networking Level 4.
  • We have again received an unqualified Audit opinion from the Auditor General.
  • We have hosted virtual Diploma Ceremonies for the students who qualified in 2019 and 2021.
  • Our brand is continually being portrayed and enhanced in the communities through different forms of brand awareness campaigns.
  • For EWC to rise to prominence over its 16 years of existence since merger, has been the result of the contributions of dedicated staff, from Academic to Administrative staff, and the active engagements with donors, partners and supporters from all walks of life. However, more importantly, the Management and the College Council have all played an enormous role in ensuring that EWC remains the Fountain of Knowledge it is today. Many colleges come to EWC to learn how we do things.

    Considering all our achievements, it is significant that we aim for another step-up in terms of developments and successes. That will mean we need to shove even harder to continue growing our college’s reputation, increasing brand awareness, increasing relevance and leverage on establishing new partnerships with industry and other stakeholders as well as strengthening the partnerships we currently have. That will surely pave a path for us to be a leading college.

    May this academic year be fruitful to you all and be blessed.

    Acting Principal
