Mavungwani Colliery had a handful of learnerships for the youth in the areas surrounding the mine. The learnerships in question involved the creative skill of welding, and were completed in January of 2022. The great news is that two out of the ten learners were absorbed by the company for which they were doing their on-the-job-training. For the rest, the sky is the limit as the skills attained equips them inherently.
We always encourage our Mbuyelo team members to do all they can to grow into the best they can, and as a means of support, we go so far as to offer bursaries to all our members. Masungi Mthombeni, Chief Safety Officer at MMC has completed a Management Development Programme with distinctions at GIPS and Benjamin Sekgobela, Workshop Manager at Mavungwani Colliery is a proud owner of a Bachelor of Business Administration with Mancosa, and is currently studying for his Postgraduate Diploma in Management Practices through Regent Business School. “Mbuyelo for me is a second home, and I am eager to create many more new memories,” Sekgobela says.
Still at Mavungwani, but under the wings of Mbuyelo Mining Contractors (Pty) Ltd, interns Nhlonipho Mzila, Musawenkosi Mathonsi and Vela Mnguni, were offered an opportunity to gain practical work experience in the Engineering and Human Resources fields respectively.
A huge congratulations to all!
