500 graduates will begin a year-long funded learnership on July 1, 2017 at Boston City Campus (Boston), a leading tertiary college and business school. These learners will work in the Boston call center and receive experiential training in functions such as debt collection, lead generation and sales. The learners will receive a recognized qualification upon completion and will receive invaluable practical work experience.
This project is the result of a three-way synergy between the W&R Seta, Boston and Lulaway. Lulaway was responsible for securing the funding from the W & R Seta on behalf of Boston. Lulaway is also responsible for sourcing the candidates and all the administrative and payroll aspects of the program.
CEO of Boston, Ari Katz, believes that learnerships and internships offer real world work based experience and result in learners being more equipped in work place skills. “We aim for a high throughput rate; and foster an environment where learners can find employment post the placement. There are theoretical and experiential components to the program which will increase the long-term employability of these learners.”
