IRESA Networking Event with MoU Signing

On 20 November 2023, an IRESA networking event titled Future Skills Challenges in the format of a round table discussion was held in Bloemfontein, South Africa. IRESA is a network of professional trade associations and organisations, such as our training and vocational education partner, Motheo TVET College. The Initiative for Responsible Economy South Africa was launched in 2021 by Kreishandwerkerschaft Steinfurt Warendorf and addresses topics relating to responsible economy in South Africa.

This discussion focussed on the automotive industry – Jan Shoeman, COO of the automotive industry association RMI (Retail Motor Industry), was invited as a guest speaker to provide valuable insights into future professional skills that will be required for the sustained success of the automotive industry.

The event also provided a platform for industry professionals, instructors and specialists to engage in meaningful discussions, build connections and share ideas.

A total of 36 representatives from various parts of the South African automotive industry attended the event. At the end, Mr Shoemann signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on behalf of RMI with the Principal of Motheo TVET College, Marianna Phutsisi.
