Skills Development

Skills Development is a critical aspect of Adapt IT’s business continuity to maintain continuous development of skills, while uplifting the communities it operates, by creating skills development opportunities like learnership and bursary programmes.

Adapt IT Holdings Limited subscribes to the South African National Qualifications Framework (NQF) and the Skills Development Act, to uplift the communities in and around its areas of operation. The company is actively supporting the development and success of future leaders to enable them to Achieve more. As such, the development of South African youth from matriculants, college students, including skilled but unemployed and unskilled unemployed youth remains a big concern for Adapt IT.

In line with NQF, Adapt IT has implemented the following Skills Development initiatives:

  • Learnership
  • University Bursary Programme
  • Graduate Programme

All of these initiatives contribute towards Adapt IT skills development strategy for a sustainable skills pipeline for future needs, while improving life of the underprivileged communities.

Youth Employment Services (YES)

YES (Youth Employment Service) is a government-backed business- led initiative designed to create employment for one million young people. The initiative offers businesses the opportunity to gain up to 2 B-BBEE levels should they participate and meet their targets. Participation requires businesses to sponsor unemployed youth for 12 months in a job.

The initiative aims to give an entire generation of youth the opportunity to gain work experience, transforming their lives, the businesses they help grow, and the economy of the entire country all predicated on the fact that without experience youth cannot get a job and without a job, youth cannot get experience.

Adapt IT further demonstrated its commitment in Skills Development by appointing 28 YES beneficiaries in June 2020, who were unemployed.

 

Graduate Programme

In addition to the above Skills Development programmes, Adapt IT recruit newly qualified unemployed graduates for a fixed period. This initiative offers the graduates an opportunity to learn and to acquire new skills and experience in line with their qualifications.

Graduates are also mentored, to guide and support them throughout their employment period. In some instances Graduates are absorbed and appointed permanently.

We are proud to share one of the success stories wherein an unemployed youth, Tebogo Mushingwa, started her career at Adapt IT in the Graduate Programme and was subsequently absorbed into the business and appointed permanently. Please click on the video to connect with Tebogo’s story.
