Academy of Excellence
The Naidu Consulting Academy of Excellence develops trainee civil technicians seeking in-service training to get real-life, on-the-job exposure. This opportunity is a one-year programme where students will gain a practical and in-depth understanding of the engineering workplace through structured exposure to each of the company’s business units. This is complimented with periodic in-house lectures by specialists within each unit and coupled with a CETA accredited 12 Month Project Management Learnership integrated into the programme. This approach provides trainees with a unique opportunity to become work-ready, confident, and familiar with every aspect of the engineering industry through exposure to our different divisions. Our mission is to create an experienced, confident professional.
I was fortunate to participate in the inaugural Academy of Excellence class of 2017. I found the programme enlightening as we gained exposure to each of the company’s divisions in a structured rotational process through the 1 year experiential learning period. This allowed me to realise my passion for pavement engineering. To top it off, I was awarded a bursary to complete my studies and was offered employment after completing my studies shaping my life, my future and better equipping me to transform lives.
