The Project concerns the promotion of youth employment in the artisanal sector of installation, repair, and maintenance (IRM) facilitated by the National Business Initiative (NBI). The purpose of the Project is to establish artisanal IRM training hubs offering skills and business development services for entrepreneurs, micro enterprises and IRM trainees from targeted local communities. This is to contribute to the objective of the IRM initiative to develop township economies through supporting small, medium, and micro township enterprises (SMMEs) to grow their businesses and thereby create employment opportunities for young people from these communities. The program also aims to support the transition towards & development of the green economy and to unlock related business opportunities for the target groups. Within the FC project, NBI will design, construct, and equip IRM hubs at selected TVET colleges in close cooperation with neighbouring industrial / economic development zones. The IRM hubs will serve as interfaces between supply and demand of labour and support all facets of job creation throughout the value chain in different kinds of installation, repair, and maintenance businesses.

With the current FC funding phase, the NBI will build IRM Township hubs over the next 5 years in the following locations: 

  • Mamelodi, Gauteng – At the Mamelodi Campus of the Tshwane North TVET College 
  • Katlehong, Gauteng – At the Kathorus Campus of the Ekurhuleni West TVET College 
  • Khayelitsha, Western Cape – At the Khayelitsha Campus of the False Bay TVET College 
  • Atlantis, Western Cape – At the Atlantis Campus of the West Coast TVET College 
  • Mandeni, KwaZulu-Natal – At the Mandeni Campus of the Umfolozi TVET College

The IRM hubs in Khayelitsha and Atlantis (Western Cape Province) will be completely new builds, all other hubs are partial builds and refurbishments of existing structures.
