Ikusasa Lami Work Readiness Guidebook

Work Readiness Guide for South African public TVET colleges. Published: Feb 14, 2017. Pages: 132 A4. Publisher: Department of Higher Education & Training. ISBN 978-0-620-37878-9.


Ikusasa Lami means My Future in isiZulu. The publication was sponsored by the Danish International Development Agency (DANIDA) and authored by myself with great inputs and improvements throughout the process by the DHET Student Development and Support Directorate. The publication provides introductory work readiness learning content for TVET colleges to adapt and use in their job exit support programmes.

This work readiness guidebook can be used by Life Orientation lecturers, Student Support Services staff, college students and college graduates as well as the whole college community. For TVET college students and graduates, there are practical exercises at the end of each topic to guide them through their work readiness journey. The exercises will guide them to complete their work readiness journals which can be shared with other TVET college students and graduates. The guidebook serves as additional support to colleges by enabling them to develop new capabilities in equipping students and graduates for success in the labour market. It should be used in conjunction with other relevant college materials and resources to prepare TVET college students and graduates for the challenges of the workplace. It should also be integrated with initiatives such as Workplace-Based Exposure / Experience (WBE), Work Integrated Learning (WIL), Workplace-Based Learning (WPBL), programme specific work readiness preparations and in support of generic work readiness skills, job search, placement and tracking.
