Our initiative is in direct response to the National Skills Development Strategy (NSDS) Goal 4.8: “Building career and vocational guidance” as it has proven to be a critical component in skills development. The lack of career guidance especially in township and rural areas has a direct and negative impact on the future of young people. NSDS Goal 4.8 emphasises that career paths must be “mapped to qualifications in all sectors and sub-sectors, and communicated effectively, contributing to improved relevance of training and greater mobility and progression”.
Our intervention employs a holistic approach to education development and recognises the need to support the academic performance of learners while exposing them to global career opportunities in order to ensure measurable impact. We host industry round-table discussions to strengthen stakeholder partnerships and have extensive conversations regarding the economic empowerment of youth. We do this to ensure that education interventions and investments are mapped with the strategic plans and needs of industry and the economy.
Our roadshows with various partners also put learners in direct contact with employers, capacitate them with life skills and increase learner exposure to brands and opportunities.
Our communication initiative therefore aims to bridge the gap that exists between the high rates of unemployment statistics among black youth in South Africa and the number of dedicated programs available both within the private and government sector..
The Inguqu Career Expo also provides a credible mechanism for companies wanting to invest in education to invest their resources in a programme that impacts the neediest of our society. Our education and development intervention that aims to inspire and unlock the full potential of students in disadvantaged areas. We help these learners find their ideal roles across the country by connecting them to recruiters, funders and mentors at top local and international organisations; providing them with tools to support them along their career journeys
We Give You The Best
