Companies with a need to hire entry-level engineers, technicians or operators finance scholarships for students onto the Field Ready programme. This provides a cost-effective solution to companies’ recruitment needs and offers access to safe, motivated and loyal new employees from a sustainable local source.
Each company providing scholarships nominates a senior technical member of staff as their Technical Commissioner (TC). TC’s participate in the final selection of students who are then matched with companies for scholarship award.
The scholarship fee covers the following for each student:
- All tuition costs and learning materials
- Travel and insurance for field experience placements and visits
- Personal Protection Equipment (PPE)
- Accommodation and utilities
- Monthly stipend
- Contribution to on-going instructor development
- Field Ready service fee
Students are bonded to the company who provided their scholarship for a minimum of 12-months following completion of the programme.
