MARITIME Business Institute (MBI) is now positioning itself as a leading Institute that provides students with work readiness qualifications and guarantees them work experience. MBI is also providing graduates with excellent employment opportunities.

Currently, MBI is guaranteeing students work experience for the following qualifications: • Shipping and Logistics • Human and Social Studies

These occupational qualifications, which are accredited by the Department of Higher Education’s Quality Council for Trades & Occupations (QCTO), include mandatory knowledge as well as practical and work experience modules, as prescribed in these SAQA aligned curriculums.

The exciting news is that MBI will be placing 50 of its graduates in gainful employment in the Port of Durban from February 2018. More students will be placed in shipping and port-related companies during the course of the year.

MBI is ideally situated at its brand new premises opposite Transnet’s Car Terminal, allowing students easy access to the port.

Those students with a matric certificate must be aware that they already hold an NQF Level 4 qualification and they should IKHASI ELIKHOKHELWE: EDUCATION 2018 now endeavour to progress to a NQF Level 5 qualification and not regress to a lower level NQF qualification, for example, a NQF Level 2 qualification.

By choosing a lower NQF Level qualification, like NQF Level 2, students run the risk of wasting an additional two years of studying, when they could be employed in this time.

Visit MBI and the team will show you how you could be employed within one year after completing your qualification with the institute.

There are limited spaces available for the work readiness occupational qualifications, so students are encouraged to book their place early. Some of these qualifications have a university articulation route. Whether you have failed matric, passed matric or just did not make the university points, MBI will offer you an adequate solution to put you on the path to gaining a qualification and boosting your employment opportunities.
