The Local Government Sector Educa-tion and Training Authority (LGSETA) in partnership with the Office of the Premier Northern Cape and the Northern Cape Rural TVET College hosted a pres-tigious certification ceremony on 16 August 2017.
The ceremony was a result of a consoli-dated initiative by the parties to implement 11 learning intervention programmes within the Northern Cape province that would benefit 2361 beneficiaries.
The LGSETA signed a multi-year MoU with stakeholders within the Northern Cape to implement the 11 interventions, which included Construction Road Works Skills Programme, Certificate and Diploma in Municipal Finance, Certificate in Environ-mental Practice, Certificate in Water and Waste Water Treatment and Operations and other learning programmes.

It is the mandate of the LGSETA to facili-tate skills development interventions and initiate projects that will improve and de-velop the South African human resources. The LGSETA has an obligation to ensure that skills in the local government sector are developed.
The certification ceremony held on 16 Au-gust 2017 at the Rural TVET College was a proud moment for the graduates and the in-stitutions who ensured the successful deli-very of the project. The 300 graduates were part of the 2361 beneficiaries who had com-pleted their learning programme and certifi-cates were awarded for the following pro-grammes below :
