Ekurhuleni offers a valuable opportunity with a free online course focused on entrepreneurship and business skills to address youth unemployment. CISCO, the Gauteng Department of Sport, Recreation, Arts, and Culture, and the National Library of South Africa set up this initiative. It will upskill unemployed residents and youth in the region. The courses, available for free, cover two parts: discovering entrepreneurship and creating compelling reports, followed by launching a business venture and engaging stakeholders for success.
The free online course applications are open, and the submission deadline is January 26. The training, spanning three months, provides a comprehensive foundation for individuals looking to delve into the world of entrepreneurship. Zweli Dlamini, the city’s spokesperson, highlighted inclusivity by stating that candidates who successfully register can complete the courses at any of the 47 city libraries equipped with free Wi-Fi and computer access. Alternatively, those with personal devices can access the relevant materials from anywhere.
Dlamini advised applicants to complete all application sections and upload necessary documents, including ID, proof of residency, and the highest degree attained. Eligible candidates must reside in the City of Ekurhuleni, have a Grade 12 qualification, lack a formal business or related qualification, and be committed to completing the courses. Successful completion of the current set of courses opens the opportunity to progress to the subsequent series.
While applications from all Ekurhuleni citizens are welcome, priority will be given to unemployed youth if a course has limited spots. Interested candidates can apply online at https://tinyurl.com/ApplyForCiscoCourses. For additional information, applicants can contact [email protected].
