Accounting firm, Bryant Bell Training, in partnership with MUT, Accounting Technicians South Africa (AT (SA)) and the Banking Sector Education and Training Authority (BANKSETA), will continue to offer training for Certificate in Accounting (NQF 5) as part of Capacity Building and Post School Training Project in spite of the recent protest at MUT.

This year, the firm is training 22 Accounting students from in and around Umlazi Township. The firm had to look for another venue for its offering due to protests on campus. With the help of MUT, Bryant Bell Training was able to secure space at MUT’s neighbours, Umlazi Comtech. Janene Goldsworthy of Bryant Bell Training said training started to fall behind and the students began to feel concerned that they would not meet the project deadline. “With the assistance of MUT and Comtech High School, a classroom at Comtech was gladly offered to the students so that they could continue with their studies…”

Prof Chandra Jinabhai, the Acting Dean of the Faculty of Management Sciences said the training would empower students as they prepare for life as accounting professionals. “This is like a new qualification for the students. I would like to thank Umlazi Comtech for assisting,” said Prof Jinabhai.
