The South African Reserve Bank contributes to tackling the skills shortage in the technical and engineering fields through its Work Integrated Learning Programme (WILP).
The South African Reserve Bank (the Bank), in collaboration with two of its subsidiaries, namely the South African Mint Company (RF) Proprietary Limited (SA Mint) and the South African Bank Note Company (RF) Proprietary Limited (SABN), here referred to as the SARB Group, actively contributes to addressing the country’s skills shortage in the technical and engineering fields through its Work Integrated Learning Programme (WILP).
The WILP is an internship and apprenticeship programme aimed at giving successful applicants maximum training exposure in the technical and engineering fields available within the SARB Group, preparing them for their trade test, national diploma or bachelors degree.
Participants will be placed at the Bank’s Head Office in Pretoria and will be rotated to the SA Mint and the SABN during the programme.
Successful applicants will be grouped according to their field of study, namely artisans, technicians or engineering.
The programme will start in May 2015 for artisans, in July 2015 for technicians and in December 2015 for learners in the field of engineering.
Participants will receive a work-based learning remuneration for the duration of their programme.
Artisans: learners from further education and training colleges who have an N4 certificate but require 12 to 18 months’ practical work experience in order to obtain an occupational trade qualification or a trade test as a motor mechanic, welder, refrigeration and air-conditioning mechanic, electrician, electronics mechanic, plumber or carpenter.
Technicians: learners from universities of technology who have an S3 certificate but require 12 months’ practical work experience as a requirement to complete their national diploma in mechanical or electrical engineering. The 12 months are spread over two years, where the learners do the first 6 months after completing their S3 block and the other 6 months after completing their S4 block.
Engineering: students from universities studying towards a bachelor’s degree in mechanical, electrical or electronic engineering who require practical or vocational work experience as a partial requirement to obtain their qualification. The four-month learnership is spread over two years, where the learners complete the first two months while in their second year of study and the other two months while in their third year of study.
