Paving the way forward for unemployed youth in the Eastern Cape.

Bosch Ulwazi’s national skills upliftment programmes assist youth from disadvantaged communities to further their education and find meaningful employment close to home.

One such programme is being offered to 410 unemployed young people in Peddie, a rural town near East London in the Eastern Cape and in uMshwathi in KwaZulu-Natal. The programme is a partnership between the Local Government SETA (LGSETA) as the funder, the local municipality as the employer and Bosch Ulwazi as the training provider.

This 12 month learnership in construction is a combination of classroom-based training, integrated with construction related simulations, which culminates in an NQF registered qualification. The learnership will prepare learners for work placements on construction sites within the local municipalities of Ngqushwa and uMshwathi.

Our primary aim is to address the gap between the current education and training provided, and the growing needs of the labour market. As Bosch Ulwazi we are proud to support the development of many deserving learners who are unable to further their education because of financial restraints.

For ease of costs and logistics of running a training programme in remote Peddie, facilitators and mentors from Bosch Ulwazi have relocated to temporarily reside among the community for the duration of the learnership programme.

Bosch Ulwazi is a proud provider of training services. Our primary aim is to develop skills of unemployed youth on accredited programmes, to bridge the gap between obtaining a qualification and finding employment, and to ultimately empower communities into small enterprise development.
