Learnerships and Internships

Unemployment remains one of the country’s greatest challenges, which is why we feel it is more important than ever to work with the unemployed youth in local and rural communities, as well as those people with disabilities, to assist them in developing useful skills that will make them much more attractive to potential employers.

Our Learnerships and Internships are carefully crafted to ensure that the development needs of these young people are aligned with the business needs of our customers. In this way, they are equipped with the skills necessary to become competent and productive employees, who can contribute meaningfully to future economic success.

The clear measure of our success up to this point can be demonstrated by the fact that we have provided work experience for more than 12 000 young people, including enabling thousands of people with disabilities.

Outsourced Learnership and Internship Solutions

Our Learnership and Internship team brings to the table vast expertise when it comes to the critical matter of empowering South Africa’s unemployed youth. They have the skills needed to prepare and equip individuals for the workplace, helping them to succeed in the work environment, contributing to their financial independence and boosting the development of the country as a whole.

We understand that for the youth to contribute meaningfully to the country’s economic success, they need to be equipped with the skills necessary to become competent and productive employees, which is why our focus is on aligning their skills development needs with the business requirements of organizations.
