Students graduate with civil construction skills

Cape Town mayor, Patricia de Lille, together with various stakeholders, recently gathered for an awards ceremony at the False Bay Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) College to celebrate individuals who had successfully completed the civil construction-related skills programme.

The programme was launched last year and benefited 100 residents from Blikkiesdorp.

This was a multi-million rand joint initiative by the City and the Airports Company South Africa (Acsa), and funding to support training in the civil and construction trades was secured.

Beneficiaries are empowered to improve their chances of finding work opportunities, becoming active participants in the economy and earning an income for their families.

Apart from the certificates, each of the students also received a toolkit consisting of work tools relevant to the bricklaying industry.

De Lille thanked everyone who was part of this great initiative, saying that their investment and commitment to Cape Town residents was a testament to the fact that everyone can work together to empower residents from disadvantaged communities.

“This programme is so much more than just a skills programme. It represents dignity, respect, hope and opportunity for a better future. Practically speaking, it allows the graduates access to the job market – with these skills the graduates are far more employable than previously,” Acsa general manager, Deon Cloete, said.
