Since the programme's inception in 2008, Robor Galvanizers has seen more than 90 employees graduate from the NQF Learnership Training Programme facilitated by the Production Management Institute of South Africa. 
 
The South African Qualification Authority instituted this course to encourage workers to study further and develop their knowledge and skills through a series of certificates that takes 8 to 18 months of classroom studies to complete.
 
The course starts off with a NQF 1 certificate that provides learners without a formal qualification with an opportunity to obtain key skills and knowledge in the fields of communication, numeracy, health, safety, technology, products and materials. 
 
After completing a NQF 2 bridging program in literacy and numeracy where necessary for some students, they can enroll for the NQF 3 certificate. Students who qualify can start immediately on the NQF 3 program and they do not have to complete the bridging.
 
NQF 3 learnerships take +/- 12 – 18 months to complete and is specifically designed for learners planning a career in management. It is intended to empower learners to acquire knowledge, skills, attitudes and values required to operate confidently as junior managers in the ever evolving South African community.
 
"Leadership development, education and mentoring are at the core of Robor's approach to harnessing the talent development of its employees. All employees are afforded the opportunity to study further with the company providing the necessary financial sponsorship", says Nico Schoeman, Robor Galvanizers Managing Director. "Employees pursuing a field of study relevant to their specific jobs are encouraged to hone their skills and bring the latest knowledge and techniques back to the business. We place a strong emphasis on people development" Schoeman continued .
