In 2010, we started the Emdeni Skills Development Centre in Soweto to present opportunities to the youth to develop themselves through skills training in order to enter the mainstream economy by becoming employed or starting their own businesses. Currently in excess of 280 young adults between the ages of 18 and 35 are benefiting from the program annually.
We operate in partnership with agencies that have SETA accredited courses and aim for accredited qualifications for our students.
Courses Offered:Working people can now also advance their skills through Saturday classes, that they pay for themselves. To date the number of learners that have completed our courses is 1200 and 15 businesses have started up from this base since its inception. The Centre is also recognised as a good performing agent for Tunnel Agriculture having won a Third runner up prize in the Best Community Project.
An Information Centre is also available where more than 3 600 people from the community use our Centre yearly for Internet access, ID applications, CV’s, photocopying/printing, faxing, government information, etc.
