Social Responsibility

Underprivileged Schools

The continuous upliftment of our nation is an integral part of the daily operations of the Skillspro Group. We have identified various underprivileged schools in all provinces where we do all the professional development of teachers absolutely free. We also supply them with all their training material and deliver all training at our own costs. We also supply these schools with complete ICT curricula to help, guide, assist and monitor the teachers to integrate ICT to enhance their normal classroom teaching and to empower and uplift the ICT skills of the black learners in their schools. This process helps the sponsored schools to turn their computer labs into centres of learning where children can learn in a fun environment, while they have access to the best ICT subject integrated curriculum in the world. 

 

Learning Academies

The Skillspro Group also started the process where we help young black entrepreneurs the start their own training companies.  Following business training and the allocation of an area, these entrepreneurs get access to our professionally developed and accredited learning material and accreditation to start their own Learning Academy. There are no royalty fees payable and this process helps and empowers the young entrepreneurs to successfully run their own training businesses. They are being coached, mentored and moderated by our dedicated staff to implement our international acclaimed quality in their local training centres as they now offer SETA accredited training into predominantly black areas and communities.
