Welkom TVET college management to meet SRC following shutdown

The management of the Goldfields Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) College in Welkom will meet with the student leadership today following unrest at the institution last week.

In a letter addressed to students, staff, and alumni, incumbent Principal Francis Mahlangu says management is committed to speedily resolving issues raised by students, hence the meeting with members of the Student Representative Council (SRC) today.

Mahlangu urges students to refrain from interrupting classes and intimidating other students and members of the public who would like to enter the college. Mahlangu has also criticised the student leadership for shutting the institution down last week, allegedly without notifying management of their grievances. This allegation is yet to be confirmed by the SRC.

This is a developing story.
