Bhekwell Group, an emerging training provider, based in Richards Bay was awarded a tender to train unemployed individuals from four traditional authorities in the geographical area surrounding the operations of the firm Richards Bay Minerals, which funded their training.

The training courses conducted were:
  • Carpentry - Roofs and Finishing 45 days
  • Plumbing 45 days
  • Painting and glazing 45 days
  • Scaffolding 10 days
  • Steel-Fixing and Concrete reinforcing 15 days
  • Shuttering 30 days
As at the end of 2008, 127 learners were trained who now require on-site practical exposure of between four to twelve weeks.

The Association has decided to fund a stipend for these learners, for the duration of their on-site exposure. They will also be supplied with t-shirts, sponsored by the Master Builders Association.

The benefit to you is free partially skilled labour.
Your obligation will be to provide mentorship and practical on-site exposure.
The Association’s obligation will be to pay the stipends.
