Dube TradePort bursary beneficiary proves his worth

24 April 2015

Dube TradePort Corporations (DTPC’s) bursary and internship programmes have provided important skills development opportunities for students and graduates to better integrate them into the work environment by providing them with hands-on work experience.

Nkosikhona Mlotshwa is our latest graduate of the programme, who has successfully landed a position with energy firm Alstom Power. As a

Control and Instrument Candidate Engineer within the new Medupi Power Station, for the first three years he’ll be familiarizing himself with the power plant’s operations and processes until he receives his engineering certification from the Engineering Council of South Africa.

Nkosikhona said “I would like to honestly thank Dube TradePort for every thing they have done to assist me in my career. …I wish you and Dube TradePort continue assist my other colleagues who are in need of such assistance. Being in your internship programme has helped me a lot as I got exposed to the practical side of my career. Where I am going now, I will do my best to adapt and show the good qualities obtained during my stay at Dube TradePort. Thank you.”

 

DTPC’s CSI programme continues to play an important role in nurturing the careers of young South Africans who shown dedication in advancing their career prospects, it is with the same vigor that DTPC has committed its self to expanding the programme throughout the organisation.

“Dube TradePort offers a very unique environment to give young people their first work experience. Bonginkosi and Solomon have done a remarkable job in integrating the internship programme into the day-to-day work of the organisation. Coupled with the bursary scheme, Dube TradePort can increasingly create a space where we can contribute to building a foundation for many young people's careers,” concludes Mr Hamish Erskine (Acting) CEO, Dube TradePort Corporation.
