Help for matriculants wanting to study, train or work in 2018

The Youth Unemployment Prevention Project will be hosting their annual Post School Opportunities Seminars to assist matriculants with making informed career choices and to assist matriculants with applications for further study and funding for further studies before applications close on the 30th September, and with employment opportunities for those wanting to work next year.

Matriculants will hear about the over 12,000 study opportunities available at UCT, UWC, CPUT, False Bay College, Northlink College and College of Cape Town, and over 5,000 training opportunities available through learnerships and other work-based training opportunities, as well as where and how to apply for bursaries and funding for further studies.

Matriculants who plan to work next year will hear about the various employment opportunities for matriculants offered by over 30 corporates, and how to apply for these opportunities.

Matriculants will also be able to have one-on-one sessions with advisors to help with making realistic career choices and to assist with completing applications. Matriculants are therefore advised to bring certified copies of their ID’s, proof of address, grade 11 final, April, and June results.

The seminars are free and parents are encouraged to attend. The seminars are open to all. High school learners as well as out of school youth are welcome to attend to find out more about the opportunities available to them.

The seminars will take place at the following dates, times and venues.
