Namport recognises the importance of training apprentices in order to conform to its own Human Resources Plan, as well as its social responsibility to Namibia. Under this scheme, Namport assists the Government of Namibia, in conjunction with Vocational Training Centres with the training of apprenticeships in various fields of expertise.
Namport awards a minimum of 6 bursaries per year to promising apprentices who have completed their first 6 months of theoretical training. Allocation of these bursaries is determined by the Human Resources Plan of Namport in conjunction with relevant training institutions.
Advertisement of the bursary scheme is done in conjunction with the relevant training institutions on an annual basis.
Trainees are selected on the following criteria:
The administration of the above is the responsibility of the relevant training institution. Such training institution then invoices Namport on a monthly basis or as otherwise advised.
