  • Skills Development for a Green Economy II

    The Skills Development for a Green Economy Programme (SD4GE II) supports a structural change towards more employment-orientated dual TVET approaches in South Africa.

    It supports:

    • The cooperation of private and public stakeholders to promote dual training approaches;
    • The implementation of dual training approaches – e.g. the dual system pilot project (DSPP), the Centres of Specialisation (CoS), and dual short courses especially in the context of the Installation, Repair and Maintenance (IRM) initiative;
    • The strengthening of the capacity of VET personnel involved in the implementation of dual training approaches e.g. lecturers, in-company mentors and the TVET college management;

    On the German side it is implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). GIZ collaborates with its national partner, the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) and the National Skills Fund (NSF).
