About Us

Welcome to Scientec

The arrival of democracy to our country brought with it a flickering hope for a better future for all South Africans.

The founding fathers knew that many challenges lay ahead before the flicker can turn into a flame that will light up the lives of especially those left behind by apartheid.

Key amongst the challenges was the low levels and low quality of education. Whilst schools could address some of these problems, the bigger challenge was to address the lack of skills of amongst those already in the workplace.

SCIENTEC was established in 2003 with the specific purpose of training workers in the chemical industry.


Our courses include learnerships and short courses for workers….and work seekers…in the chemicals and related manufacturing industries. And in keeping with the motto of life long learning we’ve added diploma courses in Chemical, Electrical and Mechanical engineering as well as diplomas in HR and Business Management. Workers can now move from entry level, up the lifelong ladder of learning, to occupy positions in management equipped with all the knowledge and skills required for it.

We’ve expanded our focus to other sectors of the economy but the chemical industry is
still close to our hearts. After all everything is a chemical!

SCIENTEC offers training and
education to more than 400
learners per year in KZN, Eastern
Cape and in Gauteng.

Attention to quality has always been critically important……not only for SCIENTEC but also for its many clients. All our courses are accredited by a SETA or the QCTO.
