The concept of Skills Development Centres was developed by the CETA as its direct response to the call of the Minister of Higher Education and Training, Dr Blade Nzimande to take skills development into the most rural and under resourced communities of our country.
The Projects Department within the CETA has an intrinsic role to play in rolling out the project from initiation to completion. Our development of skills centres continue to be the main cog to the wheel for skills development in the construction sector.
CETA/WEST COAST SKILLS DEVELOPMENT CENTRE
CETA/GERT SIBANDE SKILLS DEVELOPMENT CENTRE
The equation is simple, the more centres we develop, the better reach and effect the CETA will have on developing skills in South Africa. Whilst the costs for these structures are minimal, the potential of such centres far outweigh the investment. Centres where learners congregate to learn in a structured, supported and safe environment form the foundation for making real changes to the countries highlighted gaps.
The Skills Development Centres are developed through a project management approach from its namesake at the CETA. Each centre has a dedicated team member in its management, everything from site allocations through to laying the foundation and opening and handing over the centre to its respective custodians.
To date the CETA has successfully completed the construction and establishment of the seven skills development Centres.
