The students of Sustainable Sanitation Management will be placed in the placement sites for two modules, which are Faecal Sludge Management and Urine Harvesting (Module 2) and Wastewater, The Untapped Resource (Module 3). The students will be placed in the municipalities where they come from to ensure that they are close to their homes after work on each day. The students will be monitored by facilitators during their placement and will be supervised by the supervisors from their respective municipalities responsible for the divisions of water and sanitation.
Agreements are being obtained with South African Local Government Association (SALGA) and District Municipalities in Limpopo, namely Capricorn, Sekhukhune, Vhembe, Waterberg and Mopani. The agreements will clearly state the activities that the candidates should perform during their placements.
