The expo seeks to expose schools to career opportunities, internships, scholarship and bursary programmes available in SANRAL.
The South African National Roads Agency (SOC) Limited (SANRAL) will host a Career Expo for grade 10 to 12 learners who are undecided about a career to follow.
Learners will gain valuable insights at the expo to be held from today 12 April 2019 from 9am to 2pm at the Mangaung Indoor Sports Centre, Bloemfontein, Free State.
The expo seeks to expose schools to career opportunities, internships, scholarship and bursary programmes offered by SANRAL.
SANRAL is committed to developing skills of learners who express an interest in studying and building a career with SANRAL or similar organisations, within the built environment; specifically, in the fields of road infrastructure, environmental management and the civil engineering industry.
In addition to developing and managing the national road network, SANRAL continues to make available relevant information to school learners in order to assist them to make wise career choice decisions.
Dumisani Nkabinde, SANRAL Eastern Region regional manager said: “SANRAL needs specialists in fields ranging from engineering to the environment and, more recently, in electronics as it increases the use of technology to detect and respond to incidents, and to keep road users aware of conditions on the national network. The Career Expo will provide a platform for well-established businesses and organisations to educate and engage with young people.”
In addition to SANRAL, several other exhibitors will showcase what opportunities are available for learners within their respective organisations, and will delve into the minimum requirements enabling them the possibility of building a career at these organisations.
