Thinking of becoming an Artisan but not sure where to start? Higher Education is focused on turning Every Working place into a Training Space.
The National Development Plan requires that by 2030 at least 30 000 qualified artisans are produced per year. On average, the country produces 12 000 qualified artisans per year.
To become an artisan, you must have obtained 50% or higher in matric Mathematics.
If you have passed without Mathematics yet want to consider a career as artisans, you can register at the NADSC for a bridging course being implemented in partnership with the retail auto sector, which aims to employ 12 000 young people as apprentices.
This bridging course includes Mathematics, Engineering Science, a technical subject like electronics, life orientation, computer skills and a short course on artisan development legislation
Matriculants seeking to become artisans, e.g. motor mechanic, plumber, electrician, etc. can register at the National Artisan Development Support Centre (NADSC) in KwaThema, near Springs.
