Tomorrow is the next in our Workplace Readiness Events – We would love for you to join!

We would love for you to join us on this important initiative.

This Youth Month, disabled learners in Melrose benefit from Work Readiness Programme this week.

While the benefits of hiring persons with disabilities may be widely acknowledged, demystifying, and highlighting the largely marginalised disability sector as well as the sourcing and accessing of relevant skills within this sector remains a challenge.

On Tuesday 3 August 2021, the next in a series of Workplace Readiness Events is coming to St Vincent School For The Deaf with Boikgantsho Consulting & Events (BCE) Institute (BCEI) as the key sponsor.

47 Grade 12 students will hear from industry experts about how to prepare for life beyond school. Topics will include how to handle a job interview, drafting of a winning CV and more about accessing university for students with disabilities.

Students will also hear from inspirational businesswomen Sebenzile Matsebula. As Executive Director of Motswako Office Systems, Sebenzile is proof that through hard work and a positive attitude, disability need not be a barrier to success.

Event sponsor for the day, BCEI, will also share with students more about opportunities for future applicants looking to work at this diverse and continuously developing insurance company.

Date: Tuesday, 3 August 2021

Time: 8:30 – 11:00

Address: St Vincent School For The Deaf,  Cnr Tottenham &, Jellicoe Ln, Melrose, Johannesburg, 2196

Students will also be challenged to a war cry, which will be recorded and compete with other participating special education schools around the country.

“As part of the annual Disability Summit, now in its 10th year, this Workplace Readiness Road Show provides an opportunity to inspire, inform, motivate and educate. It also enables South African corporates to network, share challenges and opportunities, discuss industry best practices and define a fully inclusive path forward for disability in the workplace,” says Paddy Slattery, founder of the Mandeville Disability Swimming Centre of Excellence who also started the Disability Summit, organised by Creative Space Media.
