CETA recently awarded the South African Forum of Civil Engineering Contractors (SAFCEC) R100 million as part of its collaboration with the industry.
Speaking at the recently held conference CETA CEO Ms. Sonja Pilusa said the CETA was working with key partners to ensure that there is a maximum impact in order to foster transformation.
“Our partnerships focus on youth, women, people with disabilities, military veterans, rural and township communities,” she said.
Her presentation spoke about where the CETA came from as an organisation and what was done in the past.
In the gala event later in the day, the CETA received the SAFCEC Industry Award 2017 for Outstanding Contribution to Industry Skills Development.
The CETA has 55 000 learners in its system and 22 000 exited the programme last year. The learners are funded through multiyear programmes which include bursaries and apprenticeships.
Our CETA recently trained 53 SMMEs. Ms. Pilusa said the training received by the SMMEs was the best.
