Dear grade 12 Life orientations adviser/teacher,
As part of the top 100 schools – rated by the University of Johannesburg – you will receive a package containing a letter and flyers with detailed information on the Jump-Start programme shortly. Your grade 12 learners can only benefit from this programme – learners not enrolling for further studies during 2011 will need extra coaching to enter the world of work successfully, and learners going to Universities will need the same skills set once they have graduated and are ready to find employment! The job shortage and scarcity situation in South Africa, even for graduates, is still a very alarming dilemma!
All you’ll need is that first step….take it, and Jumpstart your career today!
South Africa is confronted with the twin evils of high unemployment levels and skills shortages. One of the primary reasons for this is the fact that while schools, and Tertiary Education institutions provide learners with technical skills they do not actually prepare learners to enter into and excel in the world of work.
The Thusanani Work Readiness Programme (a FASSET sponsored programme) has proven to be an ideal way for unemployed PDI graduates to get employed. In June 2010 SHA will hosted the 13th Thusanani intake, since 2005. At the end of this year approximately 1300 unemployed graduates will have benefitted from this training, and close to 90% have already been placed in gainful employment. More details of the Thusanani programme are available on our website.
A new focus for all:
Jump Start is a work readiness programme designed to guide all young new entrants into an appropriate career, give them the skills to succeed in the process of becoming employed and accelerate their entry into the world of work. Jump Start is based on the highly successful Thusanani work readiness programme that has been presented by Stanley Hutcheson & Associates for the past six years.
Stanley Hutcheson & Associates are specialists in the field of work readiness and have used our unique combination of skills to help hundreds of young South Africans enter into the world of work.
