artisan2Engineering News reports that German sports car manufacturer Porsche will, from the middle of next year, train 75 young South Africans from disadvantaged backgrounds as service technicians at its new Porsche Training and Recruitment Centre, in Cape Town.  

The course will have a duration of three years.  Those who complete the course may have the opportunity to work at Porsche SA, or at one of its sister brands within the Volkswagen group.  Porsche executive board chair Oliver Blume believes the training centre will provide Porsche SA with the skills it needs to deal with an ever-evolving product portfolio, which now incorporates electric drive and growing digitisation.  SA will be only the second country in the world to open a Porsche Training and Recruitment Centre, with the first located in Manila in the Philippines.
