The Program

This is a 12-month paid learnership consisting of two phases. The first phase consists of 3 months of intensive, full-time learning.  Upon successful completion of phase 1, it is followed by a 9-month period, phase 2, a combination of theoretical modules, certifications and practical training, supported by a mentor.

During this year, you’ll not only build critical skills in the latest technologies used within your chosen field, but also apply this learning in a real-world setting, working with some of South Africa’s most respected companies.

On completion of the program, your results of the last 12 months of study, will be assessed by the Institute of Chartered Information Technology Professionals (ICITP), which, if successful, will earn you a Professional Designation in your chosen specialisation.

Plus, we’ll assist you with finding full-time employment or gig work – either with the company where you’ve been mentored or elsewhere.

At the end of the 12-month cycle, you will receive a Professional Designation in your chosen specialisation. We will also assist you with finding full-time employment or gig work – either with the company where you have been mentored or elsewhere.

Entry Requirements

Applications are open to any individual who is a South African Citizen and between the ages of 18 and 29, with a degree or diploma (NQF Level 6 or higher). All applicants will be required to complete an aptitude test to assess their suitability for their chosen learning track.
