Our corporate partners trust us with project managing skills development aspects of their transformation imperatives. We specifically focus on:
At Amathuba Collective, we believe Learnerships should completely change the career trajectory of the individual learner. Our learnerships are managed differently with our focus being on a holistic approach to development which ensures that our learners are set up for business success. Through our learning ecosystems, our accredited programmes currently cover health, BPO, Technology development and Renewable Energy sectors while the core remains the same across all learning. Not only do we deliver quality learnership programmes, but our learners also go on to succeed in business as leaders and or entrepreneurs.
Amathuba Collective is creating supportive ecosystems that place young people at the heart of systemic transformation. We are actively trying to not duplicate but collaborate, to utilise the learning that has already taken place, and co-create sustainable positive impact on individuals, families and communities - and ultimately society.
Our SMME development solutions focus on this ideal. Our services ensures entrepreneurs are equipped with skills to turn their titechnical expse into thriving business that can tap into the skills development ecosystem as hosts and employers.
