We would like to introduce you to an initiative called: Rural2Rural Career Development Programme & RoadShow in partnership with the Transport Education Training Authority (TETA), Energy and Water SETA and Fibre Processing and Manufacturing SETA
Rural2Rural Career Development Programme & Road Show 2017 is an annual maths and science focused career awareness and skills opportunities programme for the transport sector, energy and water sector and fibre processing and manufacturing sector as well as related sector partners and organizations.
The main objective of the rural2rural programme is to deal with the little or no career guidance initiatives in the rural areas, specifically around maths and science with the understanding that without proper early career guidance, youth navigate through their careers blindly. In addition, most rural youth struggle in converting their high school knowledge and qualification into creating access to higher educational opportunities. This then adds to the cycle of youth unemployment and poverty. SETA’s have commited to give rural youth bursaries towards studying careers within the maths and science field.
The Rural2Rural Career Development programme is designed to present maths and science sector opportunities for youth in rural areas and supporting them with skills training (presentdifferent sub sector career awareness opportunities, extra maths and science classes, mentorship and coaching – guiding young people to the critical skills occupations) focused on scarce skills. We believe this would notonly have a major impact in the rural communities but also towards theSTEM industry as awhole.
To ensure the success of this great initiative, partnerships and key sector stakeholders involvement is very important.We therefore take great pleasure to invite you and your organization to consider presenting, exhibiting or sponsoring this year’s Rural2Rural Career Development Programme and RoadShow initiative.
