Project Description

The programme consisted of policy development and reviewing of operational manuals to ensure compliance with Expanded Public Works Programme requirements. Out of the Zibambele Programme, 135 candidates were selected to undergo a 2 year Learnership Programme, which was a structured unit standard training of which all the 135 candidates graduated with CETA recognised qualifications. Whilst the candidates underwent their site experience training, they were involved with Vukuzakhe Emerging Contractors in lower level site activities i.e. setting up for construction of man-holes, tying of reinforcement and setting out formwork for V-drain construction. There are initiatives in Zibambele Programme, namely the saving clubs and cooperatives, which have been established in order to assist the beneficiaries with a better social life and be able to sustain themselves through entrepreneurial methods.
