This training will in turn qualify them for professional placements in the automotive and industrial
vehicles sectors. Today, TechPro2 has established collaborations with more than 50 schools in
Argentina, Brazil, China, Ethiopia, India, Italy, Poland, Spain, The Philippines, Uruguay and now
South Africa. Over 9,300 students have been trained to date.
The Johannesburg programme is the second TechPro2 site to be established by CNH Industrial in
Africa together with its key partner: the Salesians of Don Bosco, a Roman Catholic congregation
dedicated to carrying out education and missionary work around the world. The first site, in Addis
Ababa, Ethiopia, was inaugurated in December 2013. All of the 22 students who graduated after the
site’s first cycle found employment following their graduation.
At the programme inauguration, Daniela Ropolo, Sustainable Development Initiatives Manager for
the EMEA (Europe, the Middle East and Africa) & APAC (Asia Pacific) regions at CNH Industrial,
said: “TechPro2 has created a model for innovative relationships between schools and the
professional workforce. Students will rediscover a passion for learning and studying and are then
able to put it all into practise. They will feel more in charge of their own lives, already having a foot in
the door and receiving further encouragement to make the most of their potential.”
