About The Project

Our training reflects the enthusiasm and passion for sustainable employment.

A significant percentage of South Africa’s power generating capacity is located in Mpumalanga, because of the rich coal deposits in the areas surrounding eMalahleni. As many mining and manufacturing companies are based here, the bulk of which are coal mines, power stations, steel producers and engineering fabrication works, this area has undergone substantial growth in the past few years.

An increased demand for energy resulted in building of new power plants and in upgrading of the ageing ones, with a subsequent increased demand for coal, steel, ferrochrome, vanadium, iron and related metals from local producers and mines. This has played a part in massive growth in related engineering and fabrication industries in the area.

These factors together have led to a large demand for skilled and semiskilled artisans – which fall directly in the scarce skills sector.

Businesses need skilled artisans with specific vocational expertise in fields such as electrical, boiler-making, fitting and turning, H-VAC, basic engineering and construction. The Jobshop creates the opportunity in South Africa to ensure an employable, flexible, highly trained and educated workforce by delivering skilled and trained artisans to the industry.
