The R8 million centre was funded by the Sibaya Community Trust and the Vivian Reddy Foundation and will train approximately 500 unemployed youths every year.

Reddy, who represented both the trust and the foundation, said training will be provided from Grade 10 onwards across a range of courses including welding, bricklaying, electrical work and plumbing.
“Apart from catering for skills acquisition, we also hope to unlock linkages for our students,” he said.

Reddy said the facility includes three lecture rooms, a large workshop, administration block, reception and ablution facilities.
