PORSCHE, EXCUJET AND OTHERS SUPPORT SKILLS DEVELOPMENT

By Yvonne Dos Santos | December 02, 2016

The Salesian Institute in Cape Town has formed a partnership with Porsche in South Africa.  In 2017, learners will begin training in motor mechanics and will receive, through this training, an international motor mechanic certificate.  A workshop and a training room will be set up and equipment supplied.

St Charles Lwanga Centre has been awarded primary accreditation status from the MerSETA for Welding Programmes: Assistant Arc Welder and Assistant Carbon Steel Welder at NQF Level 2. Unique Welding Alloys donated an angle grinder, chipping hammers, pliers, gloves and welding aprons for the welding workshops. The equipment will serve 10 learners. In addition, the centre received a donation of 10 HP laptops and desk locks for their computer training room from Execujet. Also, Reflex Welding donated a reconditioned welding machine plus cables. This machine is a 200Amp 220Volt inverted welder which runs from normal domestic electric mains.

Hyundai Automotive South Africa has donated tool equipment and parts to the St Anthony’s Education Centre in Reiger Park. The donation is aimed at assisting the diesel and motor mechanic learners in their technical training.  In 2013, Hyundai Automotive South Africa donated a Hyundai Terracan vehicle to the school. They have also committed to donating an engine and gearboxes. "Our ultimate goal is to up-skill these students and to provide possible future employment for them at Hyundai Automotive South Africa. We look forward to the longterm partnership with St Anthony's and their bright-minded students," a representative from Hyundai Automotive South Africa said.
