The Professional Services Branch is responsible for the co-ordination of the programmes that contribute to high level human capital development and to the creation of a pool of critical skills aiming at changing the profile of the workforce by growing a representative workforce for the built environment while growing the size and raising the quality of the human capital base needed to improve the quality of life of all South Africans. The transformation of the built environment is fundamental to the successful achievement of National Department of Public Works (NDPW) goals.
The goal of all the programmes is to produce world- class professionals that would provide a sustainable environment. Through these programmes young talent is targeted and inspired to take up careers in the built environment. Special effort is taken to provide access and assistance to disadvantaged students who want to further their careers.
