Center of Vocational Excellence Water South Africa

The CoVE Water South Africa aims to:

• Ensure that VET is at the forefront of research and technological developments in the water sector;

• Ensure that current and future water sector professionals have the work attitude, knowledge and competences that the rapid changing EU water industry demands;

• Identify the existing and emerging labour market needs and enhance the responsiveness of initial and continuing VET systems to these needs;

• Promote synergies, cooperation and cross-fertilisation.

The Platform of Vocational Excellence intends to excel in vocational education in Water sector developing regional/national CoVE Water and unite these centres under the umbrella of the PoVE Water. The infrastructure that will be put in place and the sustainable strategic cooperation’s that will be the main output of this project, will constitute a solid basis for the development of joint curriculum. The PoVE Water Scale up project is a European project in the renewed Erasmus program that aims to strengthen the skills of VET professionals in the water sector. In addition to the skills that are important now, the project focuses on the emerging skills that will become increasingly important in the future.
