It is imperative that corporate South Africa, specifically in the Manufacturing and Engineering (M&E) sector, start addressing some of the real challenges around apprenticeships and artisan development.
The SEIFSA Training Centre is the ideal organisation to partner with.
Without apprenticeships leading to quality artisans, our prospects for a growing economy and meeting the need to provide jobs for the millions of unemployed young people will remain.
Apprenticeships are expensive. Therefore, it is critical to encourage companies to take on apprentices to meet the demands of the industry.
We are confident in the quality of the SEIFSA Training Centre’s curriculum, and the calibre of our apprentices. Both our focus on quality and our former students’ skills will drive demand from companies that wish to take on apprentices.
Feedback from the SEIFSA Training Centre’s corporate partners indicates that many employers understand and appreciate the benefits of taking on apprentices. In addition, companies recover the costs of their investment as early as in the second year of apprenticeships.
