Introduction to OPA

The Organization of Professional Associations (OPA) is the apex body of 43 Member Associations with a total membership of more than 50,000 professionals.  All major professions are represented in the OPA, and collectively provides the Professional opinion on national affairs.The OPA was concerned of the dire need for career guidance, and in its absence the waste of our educated, intelligent and talented youths’ possible contribution to national productivity.

This led to the development of The OPA Careers Chart (version 1) in 1995 which was used at Secondary Schools.

  The present Project is to create a comprehensive Website for independent access open to all citizens thereby addressing the needs of our youth; unemployed and underemployed persons.
