After four years at the helm of the Namibia Training Authority, Mr. Jerry Beukes, our Chief Executive Officer, has tendered his resignation.
Effective 30 September 2020, Mr. Beukes, whose five-year contract would have ended on 31 May 2021, will leave the NTA to commence the next chapter of his career in the project management and private consultancy sector.
During his tenure, Mr. Beukes oversaw significant changes in establishing the Namibia Training Authority as the port of call for technical and vocational skills in Namibia. His commitment to the task at hand have resulted in a wide range of tangible improvements to our country’s Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) sector.
Sound engagement and the delivery of high quality TVET services have been hallmarks of his term in office and Mr. Beukes leaves the NTA in a strong position for future growth.
The Board of Directors has informed the Minister of Higher Education, Technology and Innovation accordingly, and an announcement about interim and continuity arrangements until such time that the vacancy is filled, will be announced in due course.
The Namibia Training Authority and Namibia’s broad TVET fraternity thank Mr. Beukes for the energy, vision and zeal he brought to this role and wish him a successful future, as he progresses his career.
