How our work readiness programme works

Standing at 64.18%, It’s no secret that the youth unemployment rate in South Africa is in a bad state. That’s why Step-In has created an online portal which enables our hosting partners to load available work opportunities within their organisations. Filling these positions gives the Hosting Partner an opportunity to host young people currently on learnerships with Edge Training (Pty) Ltd

The Partner Network has been established to make a marked contribution to creating youth employment by providing a conducive learning environment and finding workplace opportunities for our learners.

Developing Talent, Creating Work Opportunities

Our learners attend classes once a week for a 12-month period. The workplace portion of this programme would be dependent on how far the learner has progressed through their course material at the time they are placed with the organisation.

Before the learners are placed, they will complete Edge Training’s Work readiness programme that is facilitated by our Step-In Team along with the Edge Training facilitators. 

By initiating this partnership between Employers, Training Provider and our Hosting Partners, we are working together to equip young people with the skills and workplace experience they need to improve their employability, further enabling them to successfully enter the labour market.

What is a work readiness programme?

The reality of entering the world of work can be very different from what you first expect, especially for a new recruit. That’s why we’ve developed a workplace readiness programme that equips our students with all they need to confidently enter into the workplace. A workplace readiness programme covers the attitudes, behaviours, soft skills and professional skills a learner needs to know before entering their new job. Our workplace readiness programme focuses on developing communication skills, work readiness, interview skills, curriculum vitae building, and other vital skills needed for the work environment.
