Cape Town Environmental Education Trust
1 September 2016 – 31 July 2019
The Cape Town Environmental Education Trust, together with the City of Cape Town (CoCT) aims to provide learnership opportunities to individuals with limited educational opportunities from communities adjacent to the nature reserves. The learnerships not only offer much needed employment, but the participants would have a formal qualification and work-place experience and be able to take up entry level positions within nature conservation in and around Cape Town. TMF are assisting in this programme (which is in its second cycle) by providing funding for a mentor for these learners. The mentor will bridge the gap between the learner and the reserve manager. It is believed that the having a mentor in the first cycle has enabled CTEET to realise a 93.5% successful completion of the training programmes by the learners to date.
