Structured PRACTICAL training programmes. These are supplemented by in-house and/or industry training courses.

(Physical Science is not required for Finance and Information).

 

EXPOSURE YEAR PROGRAMME

Before bursars attend University/University of Technology as a school leaver/ matriculant, they will get the opportunity to thoroughly investigate and confirm their chosen career choice, before embarking on full-time studies, by working for up to a year under professional practitioners. During this time they will receive practical experience in the work environment, exposure to tertiary study and a generous training allowance. Anglo American Platinum believes that the Exposure Year is a valuable year for its bursars and therefore compulsory for all disciplines except for Finance and Information students.
