The South African Government identified a number of scarce and critical skills and the National Skills Development Strategy I and II prioritised Apprenticeship Development as a high priority. Too many skilled labourers are working for too long without the necessary recognition or receiving the opportunity to be certified as an Artisan.
Sector Skills Plans reflect the shortage of specific skills across the board and therefore Africa Skills Village will focus to offer training and testing opportunities to our future Apprentices.
Artisans are the backbone of the economy. Without the technical support of the artisans infrastructure will collapse. Apprenticeships are a great way to get a head start in a career. Future artisans can combine time at work with training to give you a nationally recognised qualification and the experience you need to get the job you want.
