SDC LAUNCH PARTNERSHIP WITH ‘THE FIX SCHOLARSHIP’ PROGRAMME
– The Fix SDC Learnership Programme –
Specialist skills development organisation, the Skills Development Corporation (SDC), announce a learnership programme with local media personality and leading social entrepreneur, Fikile Moeti aka DJ Fix. Applications for the May intake of The Fix SDC Learnership Programme open from today.
DJ Fix, not only a radio and TV star, set up The Fix Scholarship – a non-profit organisation that provides educational and business bursary opportunities for Female Entrepreneurs in Africa that want to create social change in their communities.
Fix has always believed that business, arts and social development and the impact thereof, are not mutually exclusive so decided to head back to school to study social enterprise in the US and by undertaking this journey Fix has managed to fund 13 students through the Fix Scholarship and will be opening applications for the next student intake through SDC this coming May from today.
SDC, who has established a corporation that specifically focuses on helping businesses meet the skills development requirements stipulated by the Skills Development Act, will be offering the below course options for the applicants that will be under the mentorship of The Fix Scholarship.
- NQF level 3 Business admin
- NQF level 4 Project management
- NQF level 4 Generic management
- NQF level 4 Technical support
- NQF level 4 Marketing
“The plan for The Fix Scholarship was to expand our services to younger students as the amount of CV’s and applications I was receiving from dynamic individuals who wanted to address problems and encourage within their communities,” says Fix. “SDC understand the realities of young South Africans who, for whatever social circumstance have been unable to further their studies and have built an enterprise to be able to address the realities these students face and give them a future,” she concludes.
Daniel Gibhard, CEO of The Skills Development Corporation says, “We have never been oblivious to the privileged position we’re in to be able to educate young South Africans through the various programmes and courses we offer. To be able to work with such an incredibly dynamic media personality who has made education for women a social development priority is amazing to be a part of.”
