A partnership between CPUT, industry partners and global software company SAP Africa is set to provide critical training in scarce ICT skills.

This initiative is unique in the ICT industry since it is the only one that links skills development to job creation through guaranteed internships.

The programme kicked off this week on the CPUT’s Cape Town Campus with 44 graduates who were selected for the programme after undergoing a rigorous interviewing process with more than 300 other hopefuls.    

For the first time, the students will also be trained in software coding methodology to enable them to act as trainers for Africa Code Week 2016.   

In another first, the graduates will also receive a certificate of completion from the Hasso Plattner Design School.

The Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) has not only provided a venue for the orientation ceremony and press conference, but will also host two out of the three classes for the programme. 

This graduating class will go onto internships with: Accenture, Shoprite, Pick n Pay, Zimele Technologies, Consnet, UCS and the City of Cape Town.

Lizwi Nondabula, Electrical Engineering graduate from CPUT, says she has peace of mind knowing she has a job waiting for her.

“Upon completing the programme I will be placed in the City of Cape Town for 12 months after which I can work wherever I choose.”
