At Capital, we have a long history of providing professional development and training for our national employees. To facilitate an improvement in the standards of training available to our team across Africa, we have developed a joint venture partnership with Tanzanian-based International Apprenticeship and Competency Academy Limited (IACA).
IACA is establishing industry training facilities in mining and other industry sectors that will support skills development to internationally recognised standards, providing long-term employment benefits for Africans. IACA is the first training provider in Tanzania to deliver internationally accredited programs, enabling us to continue to upskill our employees to the highest global standards.
APPRENTICESHIP AND TECHNICAL TRADE QUALIFICATIONS
IACA will offer apprenticeship programs and accreditation for Levels 1-3 Technical Trades qualifications at its network of technical training centres, currently proposed for Mwanza, Moshi and Dar es Salaam. Apprenticeships will initially be provided in the areas of Fitting and Turning, Mechanical Maintenance (Heavy Duty), Electrical Maintenance, Auto-Electrical and Fabrication and Welding.
Additionally, trade and knowledge tests will be provided for Levels 2 and 3 across the apprenticeship programme and for Scaffolding, Rigging, Electrical Maintenance, Non-Destructive Testing, Plating, Steel Erection and Instrumentation.
INTERNATIONALLY RECOGNISED ACCREDITATION
Courses offered by IACA will be accredited by the Engineering, Construction, Industry Training Board (ECITB) UK under its partnership with Safety Works. This will provide graduates with an internationally recognised trade skill and international standard competency levels, allowing Tanzanians to participate in significantly broader employment opportunities both within Tanzania and abroad.
Courses will also be accredited by the Tanzanian regulator, namely National Council for Technical Education (NACTE) and Vocational Education Training Authority (VETA).
Importantly, these centres will also offer skills assessment of the prior learnings of thousands of existing Tanzanian trades people.
BROAD INDUSTRY SECTORS
While the mining sector will be a key focus for IACA, it will also target the oil and gas, energy, telecoms and agriculture industries, providing a wider industry scope for Tanzanians to develop recognised qualifications.
