Enrolment opens for fully funded training programme for women in transport and logistics

The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport: South Africa (Ciltsa) has secured funding from the Transport Education and Training Authority (Teta) for the training of 20 employed women - and is inviting employers to enrol suitable candidates.

Successful learners will be awarded the International Certificate in Logistics and Transport by UK-based professional body CILT International.

The programme, which was launched for the first time last year, is open to industry stakeholders who are organisational members of Ciltsa, according to Ciltsa president Elvin Harris.

“It will not only enhance the skills levels in their organisation, but will also enable the candidacy programme graduates to apply for internationally recognised professional designations,” he said.

“The programme is aimed at women who have some experience in logistics and/or warehousing operations and is scheduled to be completed by October 2019. It is both business- and industry-focused, with subjects ranging from business theory, business application and warehousing to freight transport operation".

Priority will be given to equity targets with 85% of places allocated to black females.
