TRAINING TOMORROW’S LEADERS

We’re powering possibility through learning opportunities

Bursaries and Skills Development

We sponsor formal engineering and mining learnerships at our acclaimed Grovos training centre in Lephalale and the Colliery Training College in eMalahleni, Mpumalanga. Exxaro determines learnership requirements with a needs analysis, incorporating our business strategy, a skills gap analysis, employee career progression, SLP commitments and employment equity targets.

In 2020, 89% of learners in formal learnership programmes were black people, including 38% black women.

To mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on our internship, learnership and skills development programmes, some training offerings were made available using digital platforms. More than 17 000 compliance training interventions were completed in our online cloud-based learning management system. The creative content improved learner retention and saved time.
