Tourism students get practical experience

THE Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife recently conducted an induction programme and signing of agreement forms with Department of Recreation and Tourism students. More than 30 third-year students will do their in-service training with Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife.

The head of UNIZULU’s Department of Recreation and Tourism, Prof Thandi Nzama said the aim was to give students a good platform for the real working world and to equip them to fulfil their objectives successfully.

The students have been given Work Integrated Learning (WIL) placements from July to December 2014 in different Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife resorts all over KwaZulu-Natal.

Student Nokuthula Lihle Manzini said: “I’m very happy for the chance given to us by KZN Wildlife in partnership with the university’s Department of Recreation and Tourism.”

She added that going to do practical work will enable them to gain more experience and exposure. “I would also like to thank the university management for allowing Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife to help us. I’m sure we are all going to benefit from this,” she said.

Ndumiso Masango said: “As a student you gain a lot when you are doing a course that also provides an opportunity for practical experience.”
