Promoting Artisanship in the Green Economy
Skilled labour is the backbone of every economy. Germany is proud of implementing several skills and employment programmes in cooperation with our partners from National Treasury and the Department of Higher Education and Training.
In February 2016, the Working World Exhibition in Port Elizabeth presented a great platform to introduce the eager learners to technical and vocational training opportunities in the Green Economy sector, meaning renewable energies, electrical and plumbing trades. The overarching theme of a joint campaign with the Port Elizabeth and East Cape Midlands TVET Colleges was “Proud to be an Artisan in a Green Economy”.
