100% pass rate for Build It Trainees in 2016
All 70 of our most recent trainees have passed their TEVETA bricklaying exams – congratulations to them!
The 23 women and 47 men sat their TEVETA bricklaying exam in November 2016 after receiving high quality building skills training from our experienced trainers and practical, real-world work experience whilst constructing new schools for their communities.
The trainees will receive their tool kits and certificates of completion at graduation ceremonies that will be held in the coming months.
After graduation we will continue to support our graduates through a programme of activities that includes additional building skills training, business skills and career support. This will help them to be as prepared as possible to secure work in the growing construction sector.
“Now I am qualified I can get a good job and send more money home so my young brothers and sisters can be educated, maybe even to college level. My siblings have a hard life and this makes me more determined, I want to see what I can do for my brothers and sisters.
Thank you to the people supporting this training opportunity; people are already booking us to build their homes because they have seen what we are doing in the community.” Amos, Build It Trainee at Chitukuko
We wish all our 2016 graduates the best of luck as they work towards a brighter future in construction. We will keep you up to date with their progress.
