The Limpopo leg of the National Tooling Initiative Programme (NTIP) awards that took place at Mokopane on Tuesday 10 May have put Limpopo Province on the map as a province that excels within the tooling and manufacturing sector.
The Awards ceremony forms a partnership between NTIP and the Limpopo Department of Economic Development and Tourism (Ledet) to honour the 37 students who completed the Foundation phase of the Tool, Die and Mould Making (TDM) qualification for Steelport and Lephalale students, a qualification offered by NTIP and certified by the Toolmaking Association of South Africa (TASA).
The top three students are also awarded for performing exceptionally well nationally in their theoretical and practical work, out of the three students the 2nd position was awarded to Ms. Portia Nkadimeng from Lephalale and the 1st position was awarded to Mr. Ocean Seghabe from Steelpoort making the Limpopo province shine with two of the overall national winners coming from the province. The awards were attended by the CEO of the National Tooling Initiative Programme, Mr. Dirk Van Dyk, the Campus Manager of Lephalale TVET College Ms. Rina van Jaarsveld and Ledet officials, led by Mr. John Motimele, Acting Director of Sector Development, proving that the partnership between the NTIP and the Limpopo province is yielding results in the lives of these young and aspiring toolmakers.
