Schneider Electric has partnered with the Sedibeng College to launch the second French South African Schneider Electric Education Centre (FSASEC). The college is part of three more FSASECs established by the company in conjunction with the Schneider Electric Foundation and the French Ministry of Education, Higher Education and Research.
The primary objective of these centres is to bridge the gap between industry and vocational training in the fields of energy. The FSASECs focus on training previously disadvantaged young South Africans to become artisans, electricians and technicians in the field of energy, using the latest technology and equipment.
The launch of this centre forms part of Schneider Electric’s partnership agreements signed in March 2016 with several other key institutions of higher education, for the establishment of more FSASECs throughout the country.
Zanelle Dalglish, sustainable development leader for Schneider Electric Southern Africa, says the company hopes to teach innovative technologies to both junior and senior technicians in the relevant disciplines through vocational training. These technicians will be exposed to international learning programmes. Over 1000 students will be trained through the various FSASECs.
