Get a trade qualification without a matric

Are you in a position where you did not obtain your matric, or due to certain circumstances you were unable to complete high school? Don’t let this hold you back from pursuing a qualification. If you have a particular talent such as: sewing or fixing cars, but don’t have the paperwork, then pursuing a trade will give you the qualification you need.

According to Manpower South Africa’s tenth annual Talent Shortage Survey, South Africa has become harder to fill positions with the demand for engineers and skilled trade-workers at its highest. Managing Director of Manpower SA, Lyndy van den Barselaar said that the countries continued skills deficit is being compounded by a lack of technical skills, which has a negative impact on employment across many sectors of the country’s economy.

Such findings clearly indicate that South Africa’s job market desperately requires qualified skilled trade-workers to fill its positions and acquiring such scarce skills will open numerous doors in terms of career options and availability.
