In alignment with government’s plans to combat South Africa’s skills shortage, the College of Cape Town has launched its Jewellery Manufacturing Trade Test Centre at their City Campus.

Dr Florus Prinsloo; Acting Chief Director of National Artisan Development, will be the Keynote speaker at the event.

This will be the only Jewellery Manufacturing Trade Test Centre in the country.

The launch of the Trade Test centre will enable students to do trade tests to further develop their skills and gain further accredited qualifications from the industry.

The College of Cape Town has offered the National Certificate in Jewellery manufacturing, levels 2, 3 and 4 for a number of years.

Upon successful completion of this course, students qualify as goldsmiths’ and are able to enter the workplace.

After completing this course, students have the option of studying further to complete additional qualifications in jewellery manufacturing and design.

Alternatively, they also have the option of studying towards a business qualification to assist them in the managing of a jewellery store or manufacturing business.

Jewellery Manufacturing is certainly a worthy trade to enter in South Africa. According to the National Planning Commission’s official website, South Africa holds the world’s largest reported reserves of gold, platinum group metals, chrome ore and manganese ore, and the second-largest reserves of zirconium, vanadium and titanium.

In addition, in a recent report commissioned by the US-based Citigroup bank, South Africa was ranked as the world’s richest country in terms of its mineral reserves, worth an estimated $2.5 trillion (Citigroup 2010).

Sharon Grobbelaar, the Marketing and Communications Manager at the College of Cape Town, says that although these abundant mineral resources have been central to the development of the national economy, they have benefitted a variety of other sectors as well; including the spheres of education and employment.

“Without South Africa’s abundant mineral resources, the College of Cape Town would not be able to nurture the phenomenal creative skills of the students.

It is through the country’s access to minerals as well as partnerships with prestigious corporations and the government that the College of Cape Town is able to launch this Trade Test Centre and consequently, assist in job creation and skills development.”
