THE Barloworld Transport Training Academy and Manline Freight and Manline Energy, subsidiaries of Barloworld Transport, recently held a graduation ceremony for students who were found competent on two separate learnership qualifications - the National Certificate: Professional­ Driving at NQF Level 3 and the National Certificate: Contact Centre Support at NQF Level 2.

The occasion was a celebration of the achievements of 28 disabled students as well as 10 professional driver graduates.

The graduates were addressed by the acting Transport Education and Training Authority (Teta) road freight chamber executive and the Education, Training and Development Practitioner of Teta, which provides support and grant funding to training programmes run by The Barloworld Transport Training Academy.

The qualifications were comprised of theoretical­ and workplace experience, enabling students to develop tangible skills which they can use to access real employment opportunities.

The top students from these programmes are absorbed into the organisation and provided with permanent employment opportunities.

Barloworld Transport has established a fully accredited training centre called The Barloworld Transport Training Academy and the programmes provided by The Barloworld Transport Training Academy enables the organisation to address skills requirements and development needs.

The academy is running over 500 learnership and apprenticeship programmes for both employed and unemployed pupils throughout southern Africa. These programmes are run in conjunction with our subsidiary companies and supported by stakeholders such as TETA and the UIF. We recently embarked on a diesel mechanic­ project for 30 unemployed students and a professional driving learnership for 40 female unemployed students.
