The Marketing and Advancement Communication in Education (MACE) Excellence Awards takes place annually to recognize and celebrates excellence and the achievements of specialists and practitioners in Marketing, Communication and Advancement in the Higher Education Sector.

There couldn’t be a better moment than today, as the Principal of the College, I am honoured to announce to the public that Ekurhuleni East TVET College’s Marketing and Communications Department has been recognized for the quality and standard of work that they produce for our Institution. This year 163 entries were evaluated with 109 awarded to 11 institutions and our College managed to receive a Bronze Excellence Award in a category of Student Recruitment Campaigns (Social Media Recruitment and Students Online Testimonials). It must be mentioned that we are the only TVET College that was recognized amongst all Colleges and Universities in South Africa.

“In the past couple of years, it has been most encouraging to note the steady increase in the quality and variety of entries received. Not only has entering this prestigious awards programme given you the opportunity to benchmark against your peers, but it has also enabled you to determine to what extent your work meets global best practices.” Lacea Loader Coordinator: MACE Excellence Awards Programme said.

“Any form of recognition from the Higher Education Sector for excellent work by Marketing & Communications Department at Ekurhuleni East TVET College serves as a morale booster and inspiration for our team. The feedback received from the adjudicators will give the Marketing & Communications Department an edge to improve on their future campaigns and this award will also be an asset in terms of career development for the team and The Excellence Awards will also provide us with an opportunity to benchmark our work against that of our fellow institutions” Mr. Zuko Mbolekwa, Assistant Director: Marketing & Communications added.
