City partners with National Business Institute for an artisan skills development programme <span> <p>The City's Facilities Management department have managed to take 31 Learners on board from the NBI and has entered into a Memorandum of Agreement with the National Business Initiative to fund this project.</p> <p>Through the agreement, 31 learners with Installation, Repairs & Maintenance and Welding theoretical knowledge has been placed within the Facilities Management Department, with effect from 1 February 2024, and their contracts will conclude on 30 June 2026.<br></p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"><img src="" class="responsive" alt="" /> </figure></span> <span> <p>After the initial period of the programme, which will run until 31 August 2024 where the NBI will pay the stipend for these learners, the City will create a skills development programme to ensure that the programme continues until 30 June 2026. These learners will then be paid directly by the City.</p> <p>The learners have been placed at the City Facilities Management depots in Milnerton, Philippi, Bellville, Somerset West and at the Cape Town Civic Centre.</p> <p>'I would like to welcome the 31 new City of Cape Town employees to our team with a common purpose and vision of what we believe our City facilities should look like and how we are to maintain it. This partnership will definitely assist in addressing the high youth unemployment rate in our country and it delivers on the vision of all of the partners involved, which is to ensure sustainable growth for these learners. With programmes such as these, we aim to break down barriers to economic inclusion in our city. Our hope is that these learners will grow and develop their skills as artisans in order to secure future employment in this field, and possibly at the City one day.<br></p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"><img src="" class="responsive" alt="" /> </figure>​​</span><span> <p>'Partnerships such as this one with NBI works perfectly as they are able to provide the City with the most suitable leaners who have the theoretical foundation required and then the City is able to, in turn, provide them with an opportunity to complete the practical element of their learning with our experienced Facilities Management team, which is the most ideal department to facilitate a maintenance skills programme such as this,' said the City's Mayoral Committee Member for Corporate Services, Alderman Theresa Uys</p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"><img src="" class="responsive" alt="" /> </figure> <strong>​​End</strong></span> <p> <br> </p>2024-03-18T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891dGP0|#3e00c2c7-fedf-442d-8068-e856bb6690e2;L0|#03e00c2c7-fedf-442d-8068-e856bb6690e2|Skills;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb;GP0|#6f6a0473-680a-405c-bab1-90f5f86519cd;L0|#06f6a0473-680a-405c-bab1-90f5f86519cd|learnership;GP0|#7f01c243-25fb-41f4-8469-2331bb477b73;L0|#07f01c243-25fb-41f4-8469-2331bb477b73|facilities management branch10
