Western Cape Government Apprenticeship Employer Questionnaire

NB! This survey should take approximately 6 minutes to complete.

The Apprenticeship Game Changer is an initiative aimed at securing workplace experience for learners which will improve their competence and prepare them for the world of work. It acknowledges that providing young people with appropriate technical and vocational skills based on industry demands, is one of the essential enablers to economic growth and job creation.

In the context of the WCG Apprenticeship Game Changer “employer” is defined at its broadest level as any workplace environment that allows a learner to progressively acquire knowledge and skills through applied practise to become a competent and productive employee in his or her chosen occupation. This includes learnerships, internships, artisans and all forms of work based learning.

Through this survey we would like to find out more about your business to establish where we can refine our Government interventions to assist your business to grow while reducing youth unemployment in the Western Cape.

Consent

We would therefore like to ask you some questions about apprenticeships in general as well as your awareness of apprenticeship opportunities within the Western Cape. This information will assist us in targeting our initiatives in order to a) enhance apprenticeship opportunities for youth and b) assist employers in the Western Cape to overcome any challenges they might experience in offering these opportunities for youth. The data collected will only be shared at an aggregate level, and will therefore be treated confidentially.

By completing the survey, you consent to the collection and use of your data.

I am aware that I may at any stage withdraw my consent.   If I want to do so or if I have any questions I can contact Charline Mouton from the Western Cape Government at 082 809 4795/ charline.mouton@westerncape.gov.za at any time.
