Education is a critical priority in all of the countries in which we operate and an area that has significant impact on the future success of the African continent. At the same time, as a company we rely on national education systems to produce a consistent pool of highly qualified technical and commercial graduates to take our business into the future.Press Releases
We currently invest in the following initiatives:
Engen Maths and Science Schools
In South Africa, our focus on Education aims to drive the development of a growing pool of technical and commercial human resources, providing supplementary support to government efforts to promote Maths and Science education. Our investment is aligned to the Engen bursary programme and skills development scheme to ensure continuity and to maximize Engen's investment on all fronts.
Currently, Engen supports nine Maths and Science schools across South Africa, including four in the areas around our refinery in South Durban
The Engen Maths and Science School programme evolved out of the Engen Saturday Schools initiative, launched in the mid-1980s. It exposes learners from grades 10 to 12 - who show potential in maths and science - to high-quality teachers and educational materials.
The Engen Community Computer School, based in the area surrounding our Refinery, offers nationally recognised certificate (NQF Level 3) computer courses to community members. The school currently provides computer skills training to approximately 300 students annually.
