Our Vision

To create a substantial pool of quality technically skilled people that are equipped to lead in the continuously evolving technological environment, and contribute in a meaningful way to resolving South Africa’s massive unemployment problem. This will not only solve our technology skills shortage but also achieve a position that allows South Africa to export our technology skills by providing services internationally through our TGMM partner.

To achieve this vision, we are focused on 4 main goals:

  • Support the creation of a bigger pool of available technical skills in SA
  • Grow relevant practical technical skills in the country quickly
  • Assist in managing the ever-increasing cost of technical skills
  • Assist in alleviating the increasing unemployment problem in the country

The AATE is our first step in achieving these goals.
