Training and Career Opportunities for School-Leavers before Standard Ten. Report MM-97. Revised Edition. HSRC Guidance Series GS-3.
Coetzee, C. J. S.; And Others
Intended for early school-leavers of all population groups in South Africa, this publication provides basic information on post-school pre-tertiary training. (This training is outside the normal school context and before a Standard Ten or senior secondary school level has been obtained.) Chapter I describes training institutions and schemes and functions of the Department of Manpower. Chapter II provides an overview of apprenticeship training leading to artisan status. Training opportunities at the tertiary level are briefly addressed. Listings follow of designated and non-designated trades. (Designated trades are specified by the Minister of Manpower on recommendation of a manpower training committee.) Requirements, period of apprenticeship, and sources for further information are cited. Chapters III and IV provide information on careers in public service (including careers in government departments, South African Transport Services, postal service, South African Defense Force) and other career fields (clerical, mining, operators, processing and/or manufacturing, sales and related careers, service). Requirements, training, and types of vocational service are described for each career. Chapter V discusses post-school pre-tertiary courses structured and controlled by the Department of National Education. Following an index of careers, an appendix provides addresses of useful organizations and contacts. (YLB)
