WORK EXPERIENCE | ENHANCING EMPLOY-ABILITY




Our Work Experience Programme is the placement of our Learners on an employer’s premises to carry out a range of tasks and duties, more or less as would an employee, but with the emphasis on exposure to world of work and the learning aspects of the experience.

Work Experience is an important part of becoming “workplace-ready” by building useful skills that cannot be taught in the classroom as well as providing learners a “preview” of the world of work.

Grasp the opportunity to further develop yourself and increase your employ-ability potential! More information on our Programme can be obtained from Mr Chidakwa on the School cell phone 081 879 5646.
