Jerry Beukes bows out after five years at NTA

07 August 2020 | Short News

Effective 30 September, NTA CEO Jerry Beukes will no longer be part of the Namibia Training Authority. Beukes, whose five-year contract would have ended on 31 May 2021, will be turning over a new leaf to take on the project management and private consultancy sector.

Over the years that he has spent at NTA, Beukes was in charge of overseeing 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 has resulted in a wide range of tangible improvements to the 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 Beukes leaves NTA in a strong position for future growth. The board has informed the minister of higher education, technology and innovation accordingly, and an announcement about interim arrangements until the vacancy is filled will be made in due course.
