Bursaries

Acquiring crucial skills will help learners increase their employability.

 

Soweto, South Africa – Educo Solutions is excited to announce that two new learning centres have opened in Soweto; one in Protea Point Shopping Center and one in Diepkloof Square Center.

Educo Solutions offers free education to unemployed South Africans between the age of 18 and 28. The 12-month courses are aimed at empowering young people to become employable with SETA accredited courses, such as; End User Computing and how to start and run a small business.

Acquiring crucial computer and business communication skills will help learners increase their employability.

“Our learning centre locations allow ease of access to free education for community members – the opening of the two Soweto sites are hot on the heels of the opening of Educo Solutions Alex Plaza learning centre, with more centres opening every month around the country.”

In addition to empowering young people through its NQF and SETA accredited courses, Educo Solutions will be offering students, who are dedicated and performing well, the opportunity to earn a subsidiary income through part-time work while studying.

Both centres are open for registration, Monday to Friday, between 9 am and 4 pm.

Chris Mcinga, Educo Solutions COO, commented on Monday after the first day of Soweto registration: “We have been pleased by the initial turnout for registrations in Soweto and encourage the youth of Soweto – between the ages of 18 and 28 – who are unemployed to come down to one of our Soweto learning centres and register for a course that can change their lives. We’re striving to make a meaningful impact to South Africa’s unemployment crisis, which can only be solved by implementing meaningful skills development training at scale, where students acquire the necessary skills to become employable.

Educo doesn’t just stop at laying down an education for students, they also have an innovative Micro-Enterprise Development model plugged into their solution. Through this structure, they can provide meaningful job creation through commercially viable Micro-Enterprises.
