Bridge the gap between businesses and young job seekers
At the end of every year, hundreds of thousands of matriculants eagerly start planning their futures. Unfortunately, only a small proportion have access to higher education, with most trying to find jobs immediately.
As a result, South Africa has developed a growing gap between the skills needed by businesses and the capabilities of young job seekers.
In addition, the economy has not grown fast enough to create the volume of jobs needed to accommodate South Africa’s youth – even before the coronavirus pandemic brought everything to an abrupt halt.
