Roline Spees studied Safety in Society at the Westlake campus in 2012 before taking up a position with the City of Cape Town as a law enforcement officer.
She says the Safety in Society course at False Bay TVET College enabled her to obtain the driver’s license and knowledge of policing and drilling skills required in her current position.
Growing up in Mitchell’s Plain, she had always admired traffic officers, especially those on motorcycles. So when she found out about the Safety in Society course at False TVET Bay College she applied for it straight after matriculating.
“With all the bad things happening in the area it was really hard to stay focused. People used to ask me when I would complete my studies and looked at it as a waste of time,” she says.
Roline deeply appreciates the assistance she got at False Bay TVET College, which included a bursary for the two years, “the best lecturers and a great study environment”.
She credits much of her success to the mentoring and encouragement she received from her parents and from lecturers Mrs O Thomas, Mrs Weir, Mrs Seroko and Mrs Jordan. Advising students to stay focused and to pay careful attention to their lecturers Roline, who now aspires to a managerial position in law enforcement, says she strives to be a good example to the youth.
