CHALLENGES
• Learnership and other skills programs require that after
30% training in theory at the College, a learner must
undergo practical work training at a host employer to
complete 70% work practical experience part.
• DRDLR does not have facilities to host learners as per
their area of training.
• Initially this was a huge challenge to persuade relevant
host employers to do the 70% practical training.
• This is a problem even outside the NARYSEC
programme.
• To date 80% of the participants who completed
construction training have been placed with host
employers.
• Sites for the remaining 20% are still sought.
14
CHALLENGES
• Although host employers are carefully selected
conditions are not always conducive for youth to get
practical experience. Such youth would be removed to
avoid putting them at risk.
• FETC start programmes at set dates. Youth waiting to
enroll would not necessarily be kept busy.
• Youth are linked to local municipalities to work in
community projects of Municipality as Community
Development Volunteers.
• Not all municipalities utilise youth actively.
15
STRATEGIES TO MITIGATE
CHALLENGES
• The challenge remains in linking skilled young people to
relevant job opportunities. Various institutions are in
place to address this. The most significant intervention
is the NARYSEC Technical Support Unit (DBSA). Their
purpose is to oversee activities at colleges and at the
various workplaces where youth are trained. The NTSU
has now become fully operational.
• Municipalities not utilising youth lead to youth not being
engaged. Although several engagements at especially
Ministerial level took place progress is slow. These
engagements continue.

EARLY SUCESSES
COLBERT MABASA LIMPOPO
• Colbert Mabasa completed his workplace training at the
Malamulele construction site.
• Colbert did not think that the NARYSEC training would
impact his life and that of the entire community. The local
chief witnessed Colbert's contribution in job creation for
some of his villagers and decided to offer him 5ha piece
of land as a token of appreciation for community service.
• Colbert bought himself a brick making machine and
started manufacturing bricks and selling them in his
village. NARYSEC encouraged him to register his own
business. He sells bricks in and around Malamulele
area. He has currently completed building works for a
clergy man in his community.

MOEKETSI DEANE NORTH WEST
• Moeketsi Deane, a NARYSEC participant, formed a
business with other participants in North West. They
were awarded a sub-contract to build a Health Centre in
Moretele in Bojanala District.
• 20 other community youth has been employed by the
participants in the project.
• Low cost housing in Randfontein Johannesburg has
been earmark to be built by the same NARYSEC
participants.
20
WENDY TSOTETSI GAUTENG
• Wendy Tsotetsi, is a NARYSEC participant who have
formed an agriculture cooperative in piggery, vegetable
production and cropping.
• These youth are based in Kaalfontein where they
operate under Emfuleni Local Municipality.
• They also train members of the community on climate
change and adaptation especially for agricultural
purposes.
• They have planted maize for the first time this year and
should harvest in May/June 2013.
21
IMPACT
• Direct economic impact to unemployed youth through
the stipend.
• Youth support between three to five people with the
stipend, impacting on between 35 000 to 50 000 people.
• Youth who left the schooling system early is provided
with a SAQA/ NQF accredited qualification.
• Community service is performed throughout the
NARYSEC programme of action.
• Household profiling provides a national database of rural
people with a rich potential of research to guide future
activities.
22
IMPACT
• The training programme by the Department of Defence
instils discipline, patriotism, life skills, communication
skills, leadership skills, etc.
• Enterprize development skills will assist the
entrepreneurs to get a start in business.
• A well rounded young person will exit from NARYSEC
with a qualification as well as a member of a
cooperative.
• NARYSEC is still a young programme (two and a half
years old) and the real impact will become evident over
time.
