Young people from the Eastern Cape wanting a career in air traffic control have been urged to apply for study opportunities being offered by provincial government.

The province’s Transport Department, in partnership with Air Traffic Navigation Services (ATNS), is looking for young people who have passed matric to apply to study air traffic control.

“This initiative is part of the department’s transport sector skills revolution campaign, designed to produce the scarce skills required by this critical sector of the province’s economy,” said Transport Department spokesperson Ncedo Kumbaca on Tuesday.

He said potential applicants need to have passed matric with maths (not maths literacy) at Level 4, with a higher grade D or standard grade C symbol, and English at Level 4, with a higher grade D or standard grade C symbol.

“Applicants need to bring certified copies of their matric certificates and their identity documents. They will later be notified about the date and venue for briefing and assessment,” added Kumbaca.
