The Tembaletu Community project: Jared, Wendy, Nandisa & Thabo

This project was a collaborative effort between the University of KwaZulu - Natal (Pietermaritzburg campus) psychology masters class of 2008: Jared, Wendy, Nandisa and Thabo together with the management of the Tembeletu Community Education Centre (TCEC), also based in Pietermaritzburg. In short, this organization’s primary activities are to provide learners in and around Pietermaritzburg with educational facilities and resources. The development of a database to help track and monitor the concerns of TCEC’s clients. A basic counselling skills workshop and referral file for the TCEC staff. A multilingual (English/ isiZulu) interactive career education DVD followed by a cohort study. The purpose the project is not only to use the above mentioned conceptualisation as an informant of the DVD but also to develop something that is accessible to all school learners. In this way many of the problems currently facing career education will be addressed, because a product such as this not only services the needs of school learners but the needs of South Africa as well.

How do you construct the medium of media and the ambibiguities involved in appearing on 3-talk? Will you be able to balance the noble aims of the project, and the fame that will inevitably follow?
