UGU District Municipality officially opened its multipurpose skills centre at the Ugu District main office at 28 Connor Street recently. This centre was officially opened by the municipal manager, DD Naidoo, and forms part of the municipality’s skills development initiative where all employee training will be conducted to ensure that a wide range of employees are trained in various aspects of their employment. The centre was built with the objective of saving on training costs through using our own facility and training larger groups. This training facility will also be used as a computer training room for staff who require basic computer-skill training. The centre can accommodate 20 trainees per session. This skills development initiative will improve the performance of employees so they can effectively deliver services to communities. The Ugu District Municipality will continue to promote working together to create an environment that is friendly, responsive, accountable, effective and efficient for our communities.
