CATS Member Companies
CATS currently consists of various member companies. All member companies are well-known and established Namibian businesses oriented towards development and growth, who understand and live your company culture. By supporting CATS they make a valuable contribution to Namibia becoming a competitive global player!
The CATS member companies take an active interest in and control of both theoretical and practical education provided within the programme. Regular curricula reviews and standardised mentorships are part of this process. CATS is thus able to directly meet the needs of the industry.

How to partner with CATS?
As an active member your company takes in a manageable amount of CATS students per year, whom you enter a traineeship contract with. The student will then work at your company for four days a week and spend one and a half days a week at the theoretical training facility (currently Namibia University of Science and Technology). Following the successful completion of the CATS training programme, the student could become a highly skilled and experienced employee of your company or enter the Namibian job market to take up a position elsewhere.
If you are interested in the CATS programme but feel you do not have the scope to offer a traineeship at the moment, you are welcome to become an associated CATS member.
If you are a company that wants to support the CATS programme and thus show your commitment to building Namibia’s economic future, but cannot offer traineeships, you may become an affiliated member.
