Posted 14 June 2017 · Add Comment

South African Airways is showing its support for the youth of the country during Youth Month by hosting a Youth Careers Summit.

The Summit will see over 800 participants from six high schools and five TVET college campuses converge to form part of the discussions on the country’s skills requirements and opportunities.

The Summit with the theme, Limitless Opportunities on the Ground and in the Sky, will showcase the wide variety of career options at SAA in disciplines such as engineering, flight operations, logistics, catering, aircraft maintenance, aviation medicine, and aviation law.

The aim of the event, which runs over four days, is to give young people an insider’s view of how an airline operates and to make them aware of the many career options available generally in aviation and specifically in the airline business. To demonstrate this, SAA in collaboration with its stakeholders and aviation partners such as Denel, Ekurhuleni Municipality, SA Civil Aviation Authority, SA Police Service, and the Tertiary Education Training Authority (TETA) will have on display various exhibitions during the career summit.

“We are excited about hosting these young people during Youth Month and we hope to offer them insight into a variety of career options available in the industry and trust that this information will be very useful to them as they decide on their future career paths. Often all it takes for the start of a great career is the seed of inspiration to be planted,” said SAA Acting CEO, Mr Musa Zwane.
