Anglo Platinum Bursary Scheme 2012,Anglo Platinum Limited
Anglo Platinum Limited places a high degree of importance on the training and development of our employees. We are expanding to meet market demands, and introducing modern technology into our operations. For this reason, we need high
calibre professionals to operate and manage our operations.
The Anglo Platinum Limited Bursary Scheme is mainly designed to give young professionals an entry point into the company. The scheme not only provides these bursars with an academic qualification, but it also gives them all the skills they will need to launch a successful career in Platinum and in the mining industry. The Anglo Platinum Limited Bursary Scheme is attractive in many respects – not only does it cover all of the financial needs of bursars, but it also provides medical cover and includes a computer
allowance. And most importantly, it offers the prospect of a permanent position with the world leader in platinum – Anglo Platinum Limited. Entering the world of Anglo Platinum Limited opens the door to a career path in our operations across
southern Africa, and also in the bigger, global Anglo American Group.
Depending on the bursar’s chosen discipline of study and his or her academic ability, there are three possible study options open to them:
01 Tertiary study at a UNIVERSITY – This includes components of practical training prior to, and during, tertiary study.
02 Tertiary study at a UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY – This includes the component of experiential training as required by the university of technology for the National Diploma, National Higher Diploma or B.Tech degree.
03 Structured PRACTICAL training programmes – These are supplemented by in-house and/or industry training courses.
UNIVERSITY/UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY ROUTE
Before bursars attend University/University of Technology as a school leaver/matriculant, they will have the opportunity to:
Thoroughly investigate the chosen career by working for up to a year under professional practitioners during which time they will receive a generous training allowance.
Confirm the career choice before embarking on full-time studies.
Gain practical experience in the work situation.
Gain exposure to tertiary study prior to commencing full-time studies.
This is carried out during the so-called Exposure Year. Anglo Platinum Limited believes that the Exposure
Year is a valuable year for its bursars and it is strongly encouraged.
Once the bursars have completed the required degree:
A comprehensive post-study training programme will provide them with the experience, skills and
confidence to cope with later appointments to more senior and responsible positions within the organisation.
They will be required to work for the Company for an equivalent number of years to that for which they received sponsorship at a tertiary institution.
This is a structured practical training programme supplemented by in-house and/or industry training
courses leading to an industry recognised certificate and a substantive appointment with the company.
Trainees receive an allowance while in training.
