Accelerate your tech career

2018-09-11 06:00

Young, unemployed South Africans passionate about a career in digital are invited to apply to the Java Launch CapaCiTi training and placement programme set to kick off later this month. CapaCiTi, a full-time tech career accelerator for ambitious youth, earlier this year scaled up its programme delivery to support even more talented young tech enthusiasts. “For those who are crazy about technology and ready to work hard – these programmes are a powerful platform to secure your digital career,” says a statement from the Cape Innovation and Technology Initiative (CiTi).

The CapaCiTi programmes are to be run at its brand-new tech student campus in Salt River. CapaCiTi students have direct access to CiTi’s vibrant technology and entrepreneurship ecosystem to access further opportunities and form valuable connections with other tech professionals and leaders through events and mentorship opportunities.

The goal is to equip 3000 talented young South Africans with industry-demanded technology and business skills, placing graduates into internships and permanent jobs in South Africa’s leading companies.

The Java Launch programme is the most recent high impact programme available to youth in Cape Town and Johannesburg. The programme is open to previously disadvantaged, unemployed youth.

V Interested persons can call the CiTi headquarters at the Woodstock Bandwith Barn for any and all queries on 021 409 7000.
