The story behind the R300-million Afrikaans college built under budget and ahead of schedule

Solidarity recently unveiled its impressive new R300-million Sol-Tech technical training college campus in Monument Park, Pretoria.

Sol-Tech, which was founded in 2007, is an accredited private tertiary institution which focuses on scarce practical skills.

Its full-time courses, which include daily lectures and training sessions, including qualifications for welders, fitters and turners, toolmakers, electricians, and millwrights.

Schalekamp said Kanton Investments purchased the land on which the new Sol-Tech campus was built in an open auction in 2010.

However, due to political interference it had to battle the Tshwane Metro for rights to the property for seven years. It eventually won its case with costs in 2018, after which the project could formally begin.
Very sad that Tshwane Metro (funded by ratepayers) is against improving education in ZA.

Well done to Sol-Tech.

Great achievement for the rainbow nation. It is absolutely Incredible what we can achieve as a country if we pull together all races to ensure a better future for the current and next generation.

Ok, I'll ask. Where is the rainbow nation and all races involved here? I see one majority (but minority) race and one language. No need to sugar coat it. Facts are facts. And I applaud them.

Yep, the best place to send your Afrikaans speaking child then leave the country with the knowledge and skills obtained.
