Following on our theme of learning and development of our employees and community, the Group designed a bursary scheme to provide full-time bursaries to 10 students.Candidates are sourced from our local communities, with the intention of offering them job opportunities to fill the scarce skills vacancies within Barber ton Mines on completion of their studies.
The bursary scheme covers full tuition fees, accommodation, prescribed text books, on-site mentoring, three weeks’ vacation, job in a year and a monthly allowance of ZAR800 for a period of 10 months, per academic year.
This year we announced the election of the 10 candidates who were chosen from our labour sending area. The graduates will study at recognised South African Universities in their chosen fields, including Geology, Accountancy, Mine Engineering and Mine Surveying.
Pan African Resources intends to recruit a further four candidates next year bringing the approved complement to 14, which will be ongoing.
