Guest from South Africa informed themselves about the craft training in construction. Last year, representatives of local government of Moses Kotane in the North West Province of South Africa, visited the Kreishandwerkerschaft-Steinfurt Warendorf in Rheine. This time KH-CEO Frank Tischner received Kgosi Nyalala Pilane, tribal leader of the Bakgatla Ba Kgafela since 1996. The contact was initiated from architect Ulrich Borowski and Dieter Plagemann from the WKB Systems GmbH who are involved in a long-term development projects in this region. Benefiting from a beautiful nature, among others with the National Park Pilanesberg, near the tourist leisure and entertainment complex Sun City and large platinum deposits, the region suffers still from unemployment, poor infrastructure and weak economy. A master plan for several decades proposes to exploit the wealth of natural resources for investment in agriculture, industry and tourism. An important factor for the implementation of this plan is getting new cooperation partners and the qualification of the people who live there. In the implementation of the various projects, particularly in construction projects, qualified people are required. This qualified people should be local people to increase the employment rate and also to increase the income of the population. In the education center of the Kreishandwerkerschaft in Rheine ,where the inter-company courses take place, a substantial part of the dual vocational training system, CEO Frank Tischner and trainer of construction Ulrich Alfing explained the workflow and the contents of training in the building trades to the guest from South Africa. In addition to technical issues themes of the financing and organization of training were discussed. Both sites know that the system of the german dual system can not be converted one to one in South Africa, but Kgosi Nyalala Pilane and its german partner took a variety of impressions and ideas of the visit at the Kreishandwerkerschaft.
