Course for councillors

More than 20 Johannesburg City councillors are receiving training from Wits Enterprise in specialised project management.

Wits Enterprise is the commercial company of Wits University and offers more than 250 short courses using multidisciplinary teams of experts drawn from across the university’s five faculties.

‘The project management course promotes self-discipline and time management. It motivates councillors to introduce projects within their communities and to encourage the mobilisation of resources,” said Jacqueline Matladi, a Johannesburg City councillor.

The specialised project management for community developers course is fully accredited by the Education, Training and Development Practices Sector Education and Training Authority (ETDP Seta) and participants who complete the course will received ETDP Seta certificates of competence with a credit value of 25 points.

‘What is unique about this project management course is the strong practical component,” said Dr Johan Swanepoel, short courses manager at Wits Enterprise.

‘A defining feature of the course is that it requires participants to apply the theoretical knowledge they have gained through practical application. Many other project management courses are solely theory-based and lack this practical component,” Swanepoel said.
