The cost involved in studying fulltime or even part time and then only enter the world of work has become out of reach and a nightmare instead of a dream for many South Africans.
We at Siyathembana, after offering learner ships/qualifications for companies to employed 18.1 and unemployed 18.2 learners for the past three years have had great success in the way forward by really harnessing the concept, “Learn while you Earn”.
The advantages of this study method is that you can put bread on the table while enhancing your knowledge and earning a qualification, you apply the new knowledge immediately to the advantage of your employers (ROI) and the biggest advantage of all, you are gaining experience while learning and being in the world of work.
Siyathembana will be starting with a public course and full qualification at the end of November in National Certificate: Business Administration Services L4 (ID 35928) in Cape Town.
We have had a few companies with two or three staff members and we have taken a decision to join the groups and open applications to all businesses interested. The orientation/registration and induction will take place during the last week in November and classes will take place two days a month for 1 year.
Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more detailed information. A friendly word of advice, only 20 learners will be registered for this rollout, the last for 2009. All other qualifications and course rollouts for 2010 will soon be available on our website www.siyathembana.com.
