The Commercial Advancement Training Scheme (CATS) is a two-year programme providing dual training to both school leavers and employees wanting to further their professional careers.
CATS is a registered section 21 company - not for gain. It is a private initiative by the Namibian industry and currently consists of 21 member companies.
CATS students are employed by one of the CATS member companies for two years. During this time they receive both practical and theoretical training. Practical training consists of on-the-job training at the company for four days a week, while another one and a half days are dedicated to theoretical training which is offered at NUST. On-the-job training means the trainee will rotate through different departments of the business under the guidance of a CATS mentor and supervisor. Theoretical training consists of education in business administration subjects by a training provider, currently the Namibia University of Science and Technology.
