25 ICT graduates a major boost for the City

The Executive Mayor Xola Pakati handed over National Certificates in Information Technology, System Support NQF 5 to 25 learnership participants at Gompo Hall, East London on Wednesday 04 April.

The ICT learnership was aimed at ensuring that unemployed youth with Matric and or with diplomas and degrees from Duncan Village and the surrounding areas are well capacitated to increase their employability opportunities.

The programme was done through the Academy of Training and Development in East London. The programme kicked off in March 2017 -  February 2018. This was done as part of giving support to BCMM’s vision of becoming a Smart City.

“We have gathered here today to congratulate and celebrate with you this memorable day in your lives, and challenge you to study further as the City need skilled and qualified young people for its development initiatives,” said Pakati.

The initiative marks the turning point by the City in reducing high levels of unemployment by embarking on skills development programmes aimed and equipping young and unemployed citizens with ICT skills that will benefit the Metro.

Pakati said the City had seen significant improvement in the expanded definition of unemployment which had decreased to 33.7 percent. “While this numbers are high, the decreases show work in progress. We are taking major steps as a City to ensure that our economy is properly industrialised so that it can creates necessary jobs,” he said.

In culminating the ceremony Simbulele Rayi was excited and shared sentiments of other fellow students by thanking the municipality for the great opportunity given to unemployed youth in the Metro. “I am happy, I just cannot describe the mood now because it has not sink in yet, but we are indeed very grateful to the metro for this and we hope to use this knowledge to better the city,” Rayi said.

“The graduates will be absorbed by the Metro at the end of the month where they will be managing our ICT intelligence lab, surveillance cameras throughout the metro, few will be employed as technicians,” Pakati Said.
