Aerospace

More than 4 billion people and 150 tons of cargo travel by air globally every year. This is made possible by a dedicated workforce of over 9 million aviation professionals worldwide, including over 25 000 aviation professionals in South Africa. TETA’s role in the aerospace subsector is to assist the South African aviation workforce with the necessary education and training so they can become competitive in the global aviation environment.
Forwarding & Clearing

The forwarding and clearing industry, globally known as the “Architects of World Transport”, facilitates the international logistics and supply chains of goods on behalf of importers and exporters, applying cost-effective solutions using all modes of transport (air, sea, road and rail). This subsector is responsible for facilitating the movement of 90% of South Africa’s international trade.
Freight Handling

Freight handling is an integral part of the supply chain management system and provides vital support service to industries which span all modes of transport. This subsector is concerned with the handling, storage and stock control of cargoes through sea ports, airports, distribution centres, factories and other depots. The Freight Handling Chamber’s main objective and function is the development and implementation of the chamber’s skills plan, which is informed by the subsector’s scarce and critical skills inventory.
Maritime

The maritime subsector encompasses activities on all vessels used at sea. In practice this includes deep-sea, ports, fishing and affiliated sectors. The industry is classified under ocean and coastal fishing; water transport; coastal shipping; ocean shipping and inland water transport. TETA’s Maritime Chamber is one of the implementation units for TETA’s strategic plan; and, with focus on maritime matters, attempts to align industry needs to TETA commitments and mandates.
Rail

The rail industry employs over 90,000 workers involved in two main subsectors of passenger services (PRASA) and goods and freight (Transnet). The latter has a capacity of more than 200 million tons annually. A number of medium-sized rail enterprises play major role in the sector economically. Most of the tonnage is in coal and mineral ore transportation for local and foreign markets.
Road Freight

The road freight industry covers both public and private transportation, including but not limited to, trucks moving freight to and from the airports; to and from rail; to and from clients and from pipeline distribution centres to petrol stations. As an element of an integrated freight logistics supply chain it is also integral to the implementation of the Freight Logistics Strategy. This industry deals with the daily movement of freight and has recently experienced an increase in the volume of goods transported between production sites or ports and markets. It is estimated that 80% of all freight carried out in this country is done by road. The road freight market totals about 640 million tonnes of traffic per annum.
Road Passenger

The Road Passenger Chamber services companies operating in long distance bus services, tour and charter bus services, cross-border bus services, intercity bus services, school/learner bus services, commercial contract bus services, special hire or private hire bus services, subsidised and non-subsidised bus services, and scheduled and unscheduled bus services.
Taxi

The taxi industry in South Africa is defined by the Department of Transport (DoT) and Transport Education Training Authority (TETA) as a transport subsector in which employers and employees are associated for the purpose of transporting passengers by road for reward in vehicles other than buses. The subsector includes minibus taxis, metered taxis, scholar transport, shuttle services and chauffeur drivers. The percentage of households using taxis every day is said to be 69%. There are over 300 000 taxi operators/owners in South Africa — most of these owners operate as sole proprietors who are not necessarily business owners/company tax entities.

Tender notice: Research
Enabel, the Belgian development agency, would like to invite you to submit a proposal for the public services contract of SAF068 - 'The assessment of the readiness of DHET identified TVET colleges to offer maritime programmes into their curriculum'.

The South African - Belgian Cooperation programme “Building Academic Partnerships for Economic Development” (BAPED) aims to contribute to the economic development of South Africa through the establishment of a network between South African and Belgian academic institutions. The specific objective of the scholarship programme is to build the foundations for longstanding partnerships between South African and Belgian institutions aimed at improving business-oriented skills development, training and research in a limited number of priority areas that are key for the economic development of the country.

As part of this project, a study is required to assess the readiness of identified TVET colleges (Technical and Vocational Education and Training) to offer maritime programmes into their curriculum . The study is focused on assisting these public institutions to deliver programmes in maritime education and training (MET) and will focus on the readiness of the DHET identified TVET institutions to offer maritime occupational qualifications (QCTO) as well as identifying alternative learning pathways in order to reduce the high cost of MET which may include, but not be limited to, investigating the possibility and resourcing requirements of a digital migration of maritime subjects within the TVET and HEI sectors (i.e. e-learning or blended-learning platforms).
