CETA (Construction Education and Training Authority) Bursary Profile
The Construction Education and Training Authority, or CETA for short, has been pivotal in South Africa’s construction field. CETA offers the chance for individuals to acquire job knowledge as well as working skills, as accordingly to the National Skills Development Strategy (NSDS III), that will allow them to develop the country’s construction field. With the rising times of competition both in the country and worldwide, as well as the need for more environmentally friendly solutions, CETA take the demands of current construction sectors and does all the research.

Because of this, CETA sets up several educational programmes and training sessions to fill the empty bridge. On top of that, CETA provides funding for multiple kinds of programmes that promote the construction field, including learnerships, internships, apprenticeships, and of course, bursaries. All of this is then distributed to all kind of institutions, ranging from TVET Colleges, to even South African Universities.
