INVESTING IN THE FU­TURE GEN­ER­A­TION

Public Sector Manager - - Profiles In Leadership -

The em­pow­er­ment of youth re­mains one of the key pil­lars of Arm­scor, a state en­ter­prise that is com­mit­ted to ad­vanc­ing the strate­gic ini­tia­tives of a de­vel­op­men­tal state as de­fined in the Na­tional Devel­op­ment Plan (NDP) of 2030; thus, as­sist in erad­i­cat­ing poverty, in­equal­ity and unemployment. It is against this back­drop that Arm­scor em­barked on a na­tion­wide part­ner­ship with schools and in­sti­tu­tions of higher learn­ing to ex­plore sus­tain­able ways of as­sist­ing teach­ers and learn­ers, mainly in sci­ence, tech­nol­ogy, en­gi­neer­ing and math­e­mat­ics (STEM) sub­jects.

The aim is to pro­vide pro­grammes that en­hance learn­ers’ ed­u­ca­tion in the STEM sub­jects in or­der to se­cure skilled re­sources for the or­gan­i­sa­tion and the de­fence in­dus­try in gen­eral. The pro­gramme also seeks to ex­pose learn­ers to the var­i­ous en­gi­neer­ing and tech­ni­cal ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties that are avail­able in the de­fence in­dus­try and re­lated sec­tors.
