Reflecting on last week’s Budget Vote Speech of the Department of Public Works (DPW) made by Minister Nxesi, the Registrar and CEO for the South African Council for the Architectural Profession (SACAP) Ms Marella O’Reilly says it is clear that the architecture profession is being protected as a scare skill and will be a beneficiary in the roll out of Government’s Expanded Works Programme (EWP).
EWP is one of government’s array of programmes aimed at providing poverty and income relief through temporary work for the unemployed. Government has committed to ensuring 6 million public employment opportunities by 2019. This target is in line with the imperatives set out in the National Development Plan. (NDP)
