DURBAN - The Durban Chamber of Commerce and Industry has officially launched the Unemployed Youth Skills Programme.
The programme is facilitated by the Manchu Group in partnership with Media, Information and Communication Technologies Sector Education and Training Authority (MICT SETA). The Durban Chamber will be project managing the programme which the Manchu Group will facilitate over the next three months.
Sixty unemployed youth have been selected to participate in the programme restricted to the information and technology (IT) and agriculture sectors.
The Durban Chamber first announced the enterprise development partnership in January 2019, calling for applicants under the age of 35, who are unemployed and have a business-related qualification. The response was massive and the Durban Chamber’s Enterprise Development team then reviewed all the applications and short-listed sixty candidates.
The Durban Chamber’s Chief Operations Officer, Zee Zeka-Ngcamu said it was very important for young graduates to be equipped for the 4th Industrial Revolution.
