As the rate of unemployed graduates increases every year, skill development programmes help to reduce the rate by offering students with specific skills training that are highly demanded in the job market. The programmes also inspire an entrepreneurial mindset which will have a positive impact on the country’s economy and communities when the students open their own businesses. To help companies increase their BEE score card, they can invest in different kinds of skills development training including internships, school bursaries and learnerships. When investing in a skills development programme a company will be credited with 25 points on the BEE score card. With the #feesmustfall movement creating a disruption in tertiary institutions, companies need to spend money on skills development programmes to have a good reputation on their employment equity profile.
The Labour Relations Act 66 of 1995, states that no one should be discriminated in the workplace or while looking for a job according to their race, gender or social background. At Sparrow FET College we provide you with a solution that benefits your scorecard and your company image, which will result in repeated business. Sparrow FET College provides 12 months learnerships and 6 months skills development programmes. A company can either fund a student to study, pay for their school bursary or employ a student to gain workplace experience and grow within the company. Join Sparrow Schools FET in reducing the unemployment rate while increasing your BEE score card. #EducateAchild
