WE ARE ABOUT PEOPLE
We solve BBBEE related skills development challenges in a meaningful way
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:
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.
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.
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.
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.

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…
