INVESTING IN THE FUTURE GENERATION
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.
