SACEEC launches at High Schools

10 August 2017 | Posted in SACEEC News.

The South African Capital Equipment Export Council (SACEEC) has partnered with the Gauteng Growth and Development Agency to establish the SACEEC Schools Programme (SSP).

The SSP was launched over the past two weeks at four selected technical high schools in Gauteng to promote careers in the capital equipment manufacturing sector. D3, a consultancy firm employed by the SACEEC, is implementing the SSP at the following four schools: 

  • Rhodesfield Technical High School in Kempton Park
  • Hans Moore High School in Benoni
  • Springs Technical High School
  • Fumana Comprehensive School in Katlehong.

The SSP aims to guide and prepare high school learners for post matric opportunities as artisans with a specific aim to promote the following career choices:  Tooling and Machining (machinists, tool jig and die makers), Industrial Maintenance (millwrights and fitters), Boilermakers, Coded Welders and Technical Sales Staff.

The feedback from the schools indicates that learner exposure to these career fields has been limited. SACEEC hopes to generate enough excitement and opportunities to increase learner interest in careers as artisans in the capital equipment manufacturing sector. The SSP initiative includes continued annual career days, annual company site visits, industry mentor and psychology support systems. “We can’t wait to see how the learners develop and grow into the leaders of tomorrow.” says Lara Slogrove from D3.
