The ProudAfrique Career Activation Program for People with Disabilities offers our learners a career path, not just training. The objective is to retain a learner on a set of programs until such time as he or she can find gainful employment. A learner has the freedom to leave the program at any stage or continue to attain the NQF 4 Supervisory or Junior Management qualification.
The program is designed to have a soft start. All prospective learners start with a foundation year on a Business Administration Learnership at NQF Level 2. This allows people to get into a productive mode of learning while working towards a real qualification. Learners that pass through that process successfully, even learners that had some degree of difficulty, are then registered on a Wholesale and Retail Operations Learnership also at NQF 2. This is designed to broaden their understanding of business and to open them to the opportunities in the wholesale and retail sectors.
During the second year, the learner is offered one of two career paths. The learner, with support of the staff, will decide if on advancing in a general administrative management direction or continue in the Wholesale and Retail Operations course. The general administrative management continues the learning with a Business Administration Learnership at NQF3 and a General Management Learnership at NQF4. These learners would now be able to seek employment in any typical office or administrative environment.
Learners that select the Wholesale and Retail direction continue their learning journey to achieving a Wholesale & Retail Supervision Learnership at NQF Level 4. This should open one of the many opportunities in this industry.
