Solidarity unveils its impressive new R300-million college campus

Solidarity has unveiled its new R300-million Sol-Tech campus which was completed under budget and earlier than planned.

Sol-Tech, which was founded in 2007, is an accredited private technical training college offering an extended range of courses in scarce skills.

There is a strong focus on practical skills with courses for welders, fitter and turners, toolmakers, electricians, millwrights, diesel mechanics, and tractor mechanics.

Wait for the government to complain that it's not English and demand removal of Afrikaans from the school and get complaints that it's being rasist for not teaching students in other languages because Afrikaans is mos apartheid. Someone is going to try to mess it up, been living in this backwater country for long enough to know that we can't have anything nice. Nothing that's nice in this place ever lasts, everything is an opportunity to blame white people for everything. Want ons is mos nou alles wat verkeerd is. They took our primary Afrikaans teaching institutions away, I hope this one lasts. Ons volk moet darem iets hê om op trots te wees. I wish they would actually give us a province of our own, we can move there and do our own thing and then they can exproriate and decolonise all they want with the rest of the place.

Looks nice with cool looking workshops. Assume only kids of solidarity members allowed in? Aside from the requirement you be able to understand Afrikaans enough to pass.

You don't have to be a member. They have certain academic requirements as well as a test you need to write (and pass with 70%) to be considered for admission.

This does remind me a lot of the place where I used to study, which was also Afrikaans medium but did also offer English classes after hours for the few English speaking students.

You're looking for a straw man to attack.

Its a tvet campus, we have plenty. YOU are trying to make it something special.

Oh and since you the spotter of selective facts. Why did you not correct him that we have plenty of campuses, this is only the first afrikaans. Why not? You liked that post.
Imagine how many of these the government could have build if they did not steal billions.

It is special as it's paid for by Afrikaans people for the Afrikaans people and not by tax money looted by your corrupt government.

Ag fok off. All you do is spouting nonsense.

There are many private tvet's. Students can study with private or government bursaries.
