The Youth Unemployment Prevention Project will host its annual post-school opportunities seminars soon.

At the seminars the project’s workers will help matriculants make informed career choices and assist them with applications for further study and funding for further study before applications close at the end of the month. They will also help with employment opportunities for those wanting to work next year.

Matriculants will hear about more than 12 000 study opportunities available at UCT, UWC, CPUT, False Bay College, Northlink College and College of Cape Town, and more than 5000 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 study.

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

Matriculants will also be able to have one-on-one sessions with advisors to help make realistic career choices and to assist them with completing applications.

Participants should bring certified copies of their IDs, proof of address and Grade 11 final, April and June exam results.

The seminars are free and parents are encouraged to attend.
