As one of LIBSAs business units, Training and Development continued to address important issues of business and technical skills development in line with the provincial Growth and Development Strategy.
The incorporation of the Northern Training Trust into LIBSA heralded an exciting moment in the skills development landscape in the Limpopo Province by ensuring that LIBSA is enabled to provide both business and technical training courses to entrepreneurs/ learners in a more collaborated way.
During the first quarter of 2009 LIBSA developed a strategy to address skills development imperatives for entrepreneurs/learners businesses in the province. LIBSA obtained the accreditation from Services SETA and the institution has made progress in procuring equipments for the purpose of accrediting all the training centres
In the 2009 financial LIBSA achieved 100 % success on its trade testing programme. The Business Unit successfully prepared learners for trade testing as follows: 3 x plumbing, 6 x welding, 2 x carpentry, 1x bricklaying and 20 x electrical.
