Skills Development and Enterprise Development are the cornerstone of sustainable transformation.
Babcock has aligned its transformation activities with Skills Development, EE and B-BBEE requirements. Babcock has invested in a number of key initiatives that will have far-reaching positive benefits to the beneficiaries of these programmes and contribute to job creation as well as economic growth in the long-term.
Socio Economic Development (SED)
Babcock funds educational programmes with specific focus on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) such as the Thandulwazi Maths & Science Academy. Our objective is to increase the number of engineering graduates, thereby creating a pool of trained engineers for the future.
Enterprise Development (ED)
Babcock selects deserving entrepreneurs to participate in Babcock's ED programme. Entrepreneurs with the potential to become future suppliers are chosen from the fields of construction, recruitment, gardening, engineering, security & cleaning.
