Learners ready to work hard

2015-11-18 06:00

THEY have studied hard and now the Tshepong learners are ready for hard work.

The Tshepong Bridging Programme, an educational initiative sponsored by the Financial, Accounting, Management, Consulting and other Financial Services Sector Education and Training Authority (Fasset Seta), has taken 50 Commerce learners through six months of hard work.

The programme was offered in Bethlehem and Qwaqwa, and the aim is to employ these exceptionally skilled young people in the Free State, thereby building the skills base that we require in the province.

Tutoring learners in accounting and establishing a school garden, are just two of the projects which the Tshepong learners worked on actively during the year.

These projects were part of the portfolio work for the Tshepong Bridging Programme, where learners completed a part qualification in Generic Management, MS Word and Excel, as well as Pastel Partner training.

To ensure that the BCom graduates and commerce diploma learners are deemed work-ready, a variety of work readiness modules were offered throughout the training period. These included business related skills such as telephone skills, meeting skills and presentations skills, and also general enhancement skills such as English Language skills and Personal Impact.

To complete their skills set, training was also offered in MS Office applications and Pastel Partner.

“The learners can be considered as 100% workready”, said Loma Botha, a partner in Future Creation, who presented the Tshepong Programme on behalf of Fasset.

She said the learners have also learned about the importance of having fun and reaching out to others while working.

Some initiatives that were offered for the learners was the Community Projects they had to establish, and running a charity, the Tshepong Masterchef potjiekos competition, that provided food for 200 underprivileged children in Clarens.

Employers who are looking to recruit these commerce graduates would do well to consider Tshepong learners. Anyone who is interested in interviewing them can contact Future Creation.

Future Creation will provide learners’ CVs, and all learners have also completed qualification, credit and criminal checks.

There is no obligation and no placement fees apply.
