The second intake for the online QASA Work Readiness Programme (November to December 2020) had a 100 percent pass rate. QASA project coordinator, Zandile Miya, says: “QASA is very excited as this means there are more chances for our members to become skilled and more employable.
“They will receive certificates that state they have completed the QASA Work Readiness Programme. The next intake will start in February 2021.”
The programme is in the process of accreditation with an eLearning platform. There are currently 22 interns and six candidates who have received full- time employment after completing the programme.
Unfortunately, companies are still reluctant to take on candidates with the COVID-19 restrictions and the impact of the lockdown on the economy. However, QASA is working closely with its partners to find suitable placements for all its candidates.
