Skills Development and Training
B&W is committed to internal advancement of staff, particularly those from previously disadvantaged groups. This is reflected in our ongoing skills development programmes.
To assist in addressing the skills shortage in South Africa, B&W has invested substantially in the training of field labour to increase its skills pool. B&W has its own fully equipped training centre based in Alberton, South Africa, and is an accredited service provider through the South African Construction SETA.
B&W training programmes are in line with SAQA unit standards to advance employee skills and ensure trainees receive an accredited qualification. To determine the appropriate skills development required, B&W provides ongoing on-the-job assessments.
