Skills 2016 Stands-40.jpg

The Fibre Processing and Manufacturing (FP&M) SETA, acts as an umbrella that is a partnership between government and a body of sectors. These sectors have close ties with industries such as clothing, footwear, forestry, furniture, print media and packaging. The event is hosted by the Skills Career & Development Summit and Expo, which takes place at the UNISA Conference Centre in Ormonde on the 14th and 15th of September 2017. It exhibits various skill-sets and career options to 1500+ secondary school students from Grade 10-12. It enables them to make informed decisions from various fields of study once they have rubbed shoulders with people that have vast knowledge and experiential training in those sectors.
