3rd Annual Woman in Maritime Conference 2015

It is with much excitement that we kick off the year, with the announcement that many schools have improved their results and increased their pass rates.

One particular highlight for me was seeing pupils from Intlanganiso Secondary from Khayelitsha on the front page of a major newspaper due to their achievements in 2013. The school achieved a 94.1% pass rate, up from 69.6% the previous year.

Our achievements so far
• We trained 1473 students from the townships to date at the Iziko Maritime Centre in the Waterfront on the importance of education, job shadow experience and how to grow yourself to make you competitive in the job market
• Schools include Intlanganiso, Intumeleng, iQhayiya, Harry Gwala, Hout Bay High, Bulumko and Thembelihle Senior Secondary
• Three iThuba attendees started a Youth Foundation in Khayelitsha after attending and being inspired by our course. How lovely it was to receive this feedback from them.
• We obtained sponsorship from Exporters Club Western Cape & Contract Forwarding to assist with the hiring of the buses, Now Media for the booklets we give to students to take home and Iziko provides our venue.

Ithuba in 2014 and beyond

We are changing our focus for the iThuba sessions in 2014 to focus on Grade 11 learners going forward. Once we have trained the Grade 12 learners of the schools we support, we will continue with the younger learners as we feel the message is more meaningful and there is less pressure on the students than in their matric year.

We also hope to reach more scholars through our initiative and we will be investigating options. Any clients wanting to become involved are welcome to contact me directly at

Looking forward to a challenging and rewarding year ahead!

Exporters' club attracts growing membership
  by Liezl Venter

Terry Gale has been re-elected as the chairman of the Exporters Club Western Cape.
Also re-elected at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) held in October was the executive committee of the club.
"We have grown membership exponentially in 2013 and it continues to be a target for 2014," said Gale. "At the same time the club is also in a very sound financial position and we are very happy with what was achieved during the past year. With the team ready to go we have great expectations for 2014."
The ECWC hosts monthly information sessions for its members and is involved in several business and government initiatives.
"It really is about being pro-active and engaging with the various role-players in an effort to create a positive environment for exporters," said Gale. "In this regard we have worked very hard towards establishing relationships with Transnet and the port for example."
