WE ARE ABOUT PEOPLE

People are central to all our decisions. We love Indians, Coloureds, Africans, Whites and every other shade of human you can find!

 Diversity in demographics can and should be the real strength of our country. We believe in celebrating everyone’s uniqueness because we believe the more varied the points of view, cultures and expectations in our society are the more all of us are exposed to the fact that we are not right about anything, but rather that we have an interesting point of view and so does the other person. 

For us, celebrating our uniqueness and embracing our individual differences is the obvious way to thrive in a multi-cultural society. Respecting and even leveraging cultural diversity is the opposite of the polarisation which the algorithmic filter-bubble of social media is driving our societies across the globe into.

Our company culture is one of respect and camaraderie in which growth and development of people takes centre stage at all times.

Edge Core Values

We believe that in order to succeed we need to instill the correct value system for our staff and learners alike. We use four simple values that reiterate our slogan and individually play a part in “Adding Value, Changing Lives”. As our name stands, we are EDGE and with that comes the responsibility to:

ENRICH

We focus on the ability to add value to the lives of our learners  through our courses as well as important life skills and knowledge that goes beyond conventional education. By enriching our learners lives, we are helping produce a standard of quality into the South African workforce.

DEVELOP

We focus our efforts into the development of each learner from when they apply to when they leave with their certificates in hand. By developing learners we are advancing their ability to understand, formulate and solve problems in the workplace.

GROW

Another major focus is the growth of our learners. The valuable information they are taking home and utilizing to better equip themselves and create opportunities which could positively change or influence their current circumstances.

EMPOWER

The last pillar we focus on is the ability to empower our learners by changing their mindsets and inspiring them to build confidence. We create opportunities, but it is also our responsibility to help drive them to succeed and take control of their own lives.

Stories of Hope

These are some of the positive stories which have been influenced through our work. Our goal with this initiative is to bring about positive change and uplift others using social media. We share these stories to show what people are capable of when given the right opportunity.

siphamandla Dlamini

Sipha’s story started with an idea, but no means or resources to make it happen and follow his dream. Whilst living at Malacca Road informal settlement, Sipha and many other children wanted to play league soccer. However, they had no money, transport, kits or space to practice and play. Through the Seed Fund, Sipha was given the chance to put together a team and with the help of many sponsors around Durban, was able to enter a full squad into the league…
