Premier Zille to Address Employers on the Apprenticeship Game Changer

29 May 2017

Tomorrow, 30 May 2017, Premier Helen Zille will open the Premier’s Council on Skills Engagement at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC).

She will be providing an update on the Apprenticeship Game Changer which has an ambitious target to ensure sufficient technical and vocation skills in the province over the next few years.

The Premier’s Council on Skills was established in 2011 and includes representatives from government, learning institutions and business. The purpose of this council is to ensure that all of the relevant skills development role players within the province gather in one space to discuss areas of potential economic growth and to look at how to develop the skills required to meet the demand created by this growth.

The Premier will also focus on the many opportunities for employers and the benefits of becoming partners in Apprenticeship Game Changer.

She will be joined by Minister of Economic Opportunities Alan Winde, who will also address the council.  

The Department of Economic Development and Tourism will also present on why the Western Cape is open for business, despite the recent investment ratings downgrade.

There will also be an opportunity for interviews and photographs for members of the media.

All media are invited to attend.
