PROTEC Branches & Projects have much to celebrate this week on the back of the 2017 matric results. Our PROTEC learners have done us proud & the PROTEC benchmark has just been set higher to new levels for 2018.
PROTEC 2016 Matriculants from eight permanent branches around the country have achieved a 100 % pass rate an admirable achievement which is testament to hard work, perseverance and a determination to succeed.
BMG is Africa’s leading engineering component supplier to all industrial, manufacturing and mining sectors of the economy. We see ourselves as a key player in supporting and maintaining the economic engine of the region.
PROTEC relies on funding from private sector sponsors to support the growth and development of technologically skilled learners from disadvantaged communities throughout the country. The drive to secure new funding is critical for our non-profit organization to be able to provide skills and development training to young South Africans who are committed to paving a bright career for themselves.
By the time they reach Matric, PROTEC learners have proven themselves by working hard and achieving results that far exceed those of their peers. It is for this reason, that about 20% of our learners manage to secure bursaries every year, and many others qualify for financial aid.
The PROTEC AGM took place on the 27 th of May and was a day of inspiration for all. Amongst the formalities and presentation of the solid financial performance and another unqualified audit for the period, there was particular emphasis on the new strategic plan to promote the growth and sustainability of PROTEC as a leading, national STEM skills and development service provider.
As a result of PROTEC learners’ excellent matric results, particularly in core subjects such as Math & Physical Science, the majority of PROTEC learners pursue tertiary studies, many in the engineering, science and technological fields. Many PROTEC students are now qualified doctors, engineers, accountants, educators, entrepreneurs and artisans.
Well, it’s all systems go for the PROTEC 2015 Matriculants.
“With the achievement of a 96,9% pass rate, versus the national average of 70,7%, PROTEC learners from nine branches around the country, their teachers and corporate funders are still celebrating excellent results,” says Balan Moodley, CEO of PROTEC. “The privilege of a nurturing academic environment has proved to more than 400 PROTEC Matriculants last year, that with hard work, determination and the support of the PROTEC programme, their dreams for a bright future can be realised.
