BUILT ENVIRONMENT TRAINING PROGRAMME

The Deputy Minister of Higher Education and Training, Mr Mduduzi Manana, will officially launch PRASA’s “On The Job” Built Environment Training Programme as a result of a partnership between the Passenger Agency of South Africa (PRASA) and the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET).

This initiative will offer “on the job” training to students in the built environment sector and would form part of PRASA’s preparations for the acquisition of the new rolling stock (trains) over the next 20 years. This will be carried out through PRASA’s Real Estate Management Unit, PRASA Corporate Real Estate Solutions.

The partnership follows a proposal by the Deputy Minister Manana to make sector skills training and development a priority especially the built environment as is one of the critical areas that have been deemed to be experiencing a shortage of in-depth skills in South Africa.

Working with the post-school learning institutions, PRASA and DHET have identified 40 students, between the age of 21 – 35 from previously disadvantaged communities who have made it through their academic training programs to be employed on PRASA’s Built Environment and Training Programme.

These students would be employed for a period of three months, during which they would receive supervision from experienced professionals in the built environment. The identified areas of training for the first phase includes: B-Tech Architecture, B-Tech Construction Management, and B-Tech Quantity Surveyor.

UKZN TRUST BURSARIES

The University of KwaZulu-Natal UK Trust aims to fulfil its objects by raising funds to provide bursaries for needy students at the University. Its bursaries normally cover about half a student’s costs, but more money is provided for students who achieve better academic success, in line with the University’s policy on bursaries.
Students must have completed successfully their first-semester exams in their first year of study, as well as any subsequent exams/further years, to qualify for a Trust bursary. This policy aims to provide reassurance to Trust donors that bursars have a good chance of passing their exams and graduating. Following recent changes to government funding for students’ fees, the Trust does not provide bursaries for final-year students where their fees are covered by state support.
