Our bursary management and support programme has been designed to develop our youth and create an opportunity for both youth and businesses alike. The programme promotes the ease of selection, administration, support, monitoring and evaluation of bursary programmes.
In the past, candidates have mostly received financial support but very little focus has been given to mental and emotional health support. This has resulted in delays in learning, stress, poor performance and dropout.
Our programme has been developed to support learners and students’ mental and emotional health producing qualified, employable, top performing candidates that companies will be happy to recruit.
Our programme supports in the following ways
Administration of the full bursary programme from application, selection, support programme, monitoring and evaluation, and reporting.
Paper-based selection from qualifying candidates, successful candidates will be invited to attend the 2-day selection programme. Click hereto read more about our selection process.
