Unlocking opportunities in the construction sector

The Construction Education and Training Authority is set to change the lives of 2000 students across the country through its Thapelo Madibeng Bursary programme.  

The bursaries, which have been allocated to students who are interested in Construction Related studies, will cover the expenses for tuition fees, prescribed books/stationery, residence costs and meals.

The Thapelo Madibeng Bursary Award Ceremony will be hosted at the University of the Witwatersrand (Wits) in Johannesburg, on Friday 15 February 2019. The ceremony will host 1000 bursary recipients as well as 300 delegates on the evening and the keynote address will be delivered by the Honourable Naledi Pandor, the Minister of Higher Education and Training.

The Thapelo Madibeng Bursary
The CETA recently renamed the bursary programme to the “Thapelo Madibeng Bursary” in memory of the late Thapelo Madibeng, a core business executive who sadly passed away in August 2018.
Open to both undergraduate as well as postgraduate applicants (capped to Honours Degree Level) under the age of 35, the Thapelo Madibeng Bursary, offers opportunities to students who are looking to study Property development, Civil Engineering, Architecture Quantity Surveying, Geomatics and much more.

Furthering South Africa’s construction workforce  
The construction industry is divided into four major sub-sectors, being; Building Construction, Built Environment Professions, Materials Manufacturing and Roads and Civil Construction.
The CETA then provides skills development and training projects aimed at furthering South Africa’s human resources especially the construction workforce whose skills are valued in terms of the National Qualification Frameworks (NQF).
